2019 Event Theme - Shaping the Future
2019 marks the 30 year anniversary of the Deloitte Top 200 as we celebrate the continued success of our largest businesses and the contribution they make to New Zealand’s economy, society and relevance on the global stage.
The past 30 years has seen the business community undergo constant change, thriving on the opportunities that have arisen through innovation and globalisation. Now, as the world continues to evolve around us, the business community faces new frontiers.
The beginnings of the fourth industrial revolution, driven by disruptive technology and rapid transformation, asks us to assess where we sit in a new digital landscape. Meanwhile, a growing importance of demonstrable environmental and social responsibility places a renewed emphasis on fairer ways of working, sustainable practices and ethical leadership. As individuals, businesses and society, our future is dependent on how we invest in our social and environmental future.
The way forward isn’t just daunting – it’s exciting. While it will take work, understanding and conscientious listening, business can grasp new opportunities and shape the future of the next 30 years, forging ahead into an invigorating period of growth and success. We look forward to being there alongside them and recognising those already taking their first steps into a new era.
