Leadership Conference 2022

The End of the Beginning: Leading in a Post-Covid World
Tuesday, June 7, 2022

At no other time in recent history has there been such disruption on a global scale. The interruptions have touched nearly every aspect of business and society, and those new realities require an expanded set of leadership capabilities. In homage to Winston Churchill’s famous line “Now, this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning,” our 25th annual leadership conference explores the many ways corporate and other leaders are navigating our changed world and uncertain future.

The annual Wharton Leadership Conference is one of the gatherings most popular with, and most beneficial for, corporate leaders, according to Weber Shandwick’s 2011 (fifth annual) ranking of  Five-Star Executive Conferences. An article by Forbes.com writer Matthew Kirdahy on the report notes that the Wharton Leadership Conference is second only to the Fortune Innovation/iMeme conference in the number of C-level speaker participants. And in another study by Burson-Marsteller, the conference was named as one of the “Most Valued Podiums” for CEOs and senior executives.
