The countdown is on to Business Call to Action's Annual Forum 2018! 

The theme this year is on Technological Disruption in the World of Inclusive Business, with a focus digital solutions for the SDGs. We expect to bring more than 150 leading global innovators from multinationals to SMEs together to discuss impactful technological solutions that can be enacted in the near term. In the audience we will have business community representatives, as well as the UN, governments, civil society and the academia. 

Just in case you still haven't registered, we've taken the liberty of putting together five compelling reasons for you not to miss out on this year's event:

1. BRAVE CONVERSATIONS 

The BCtA Annual Forum is a place for inclusive business leaders and experts, both on and off stage, to engage in a candid conversation.

The experience is built around everyone in the room, including our speakers, having a raw and honest exchange about what it actually takes to grow and scale an inclusive business in the era of disruptive technologies. 

2. A FANTASTIC NETWORK 

The BCtA Forum is a place to find your tribe — other committed Inclusive Business leaders who understand what you’re going through. These are peers who can potentially help you with any issue you’re facing and become a strong partner in your inclusive business journey. Everyone in the room can become a valuable contact for everyone else. 

3.  NEW AND DIVERSE VOICES 

As the world's leading Inclusive Business platform, we continually survey the inclusive business landscape to find companies and people doing truly impressive work. Not to toot our own horn or anything, but we truly believe we’ve managed to align incredible speakers from the BCtA community and beyond. Not only do we invite these individuals to speak at and attend the Forum, but we create a space in which these folks share what it really takes — the good, the bad, and the ugly — to build the types of companies they have.

4. INNOVATIVE STRATEGIES AND IDEAS

We’re not just talking philosophy or lofty ideas here; this is a convening designed to delve into the practical, brass-tacks challenges of running an inclusive business using disruptive technologies. We facilitate conversations focused on practical tips and lessons learned as much as on storytelling and big-picture questions, and we’ll be giving you space and help to start integrating what you’re learning into your own life.

5. GLOBAL GOALS WEEK 

Our event is organised as part of the Global Goals Week and it is a unique chance to attend different events at the highest level. Launched by UNDP, Project Everyone, and the United Nations Foundation, Global Goals Week brings together individuals, governments, businesses, international organizations, civil society and other partners during the opening of the UN General Assembly each September. Its central aim is to build and sustain momentum and cultivate ideas, solutions and partnerships to measure progress, drive action on and promoting accountability for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.  

More information about our speakers and sessions is available on our BCtA website. To register please visit this page.  

Last Date to Register is September 21st, 6 PM Eastern Daylight Time (EDT).
