The Business Council is a voluntary association of business leaders whose members meet several times a year for the free exchange of ideas both among themselves and with thought leaders from many sectors. In its most fundamental form, the Council seeks to foster understanding through discussion. It promotes learning, best practice sharing and networking by its members with a view to making a contribution to our society, the global economy and to business generally. Since its founding more than 75 years ago, The Business Council membership has consisted of a group of current or former chief executive officers from a broad range of companies. All major industries are represented among the members of The Business Council. Because schedule demands on senior business executives are extensive, the Council provides an especially valuable opportunity to discuss major subjects in a broader ranging forum than is normally available in the course of business activities. As part of its process, the Council invites leaders in government, politics, academia, science, medicine, technology and other sectors to address the Council and to participate in its discussions. Council members hope that these discussions result in better understanding by their invited guests as well as by the members themselves. Today, the Council meets three times a year in a collegial atmosphere to share and explore ideas.As a gathering of peers from many fields, the Council is entirely an educational and deliberative forum. It never takes positions as an organization and does not advocate any policy or course of action. Individual members sometimes do present their own views in public discussions. But they do so as individuals, rather than as representatives of the Council.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates
2012 Forbes Global CEO Conference

Now in its 12th year, the prestigious Forbes Global CEO Conference will be held in Dubai from October 21 – 23, 2012. This annual event is attended by some 400 global CEOs, tycoons, entrepreneurs, up-and-comers, capitalists and thought leaders. The Race Ahead Back from the brink of a global recession, the race is on for leaders of the world economy to build a stable recovery and chart a new course for durable growth and lasting prosperity. The stakes are high: the world, with a 7-billion strong population, faces mounting obstacles on its track, with risks such as rising oil prices, unemployment, volatile financial markets, and the competition for resources. In the developed world, policymakers must balance the need for austerity to address debt concerns, while providing enough stimulus to generate growth. Emerging countries are the rising economic powers of the world, but they face a more moderate outlook for growth after years of breakneck expansion. As the world economy regains its footing, how can leaders of economic governance keep crisis at bay and put in motion the right policies that will bolster confidence among investors, companies and consumers? How can global CEOs and entrepreneurs take the reins and lead the pack with both speed and endurance? How can they strategize to be the first in the most promising markets and dominate? How should leaders who are facing voters run for power? Beyond the finish line, the champions will mark their success in the winners circle. There is no better place than Dubai, a global city ascending in the new world order, to engage the top minds in business on how to win the race ahead. Registration Delegate attendance at the Forbes Global CEO Conference is by invitation only and limited to the qualified titles (usually Chairman, Vice Chairman, CEO and President). The conference participation fee of US$8,000 includes the costs of all conference sessions, social events organized as part of the conference agenda and conference documentation. Fee does not include travel and accommodation costs.
