Each year, when leaders from around the world gather in Vienna, Austria for the Global Peter Drucker Forum, they come to share insights on leadership, management and advancing technology.

Others also attend to remind all the leaders in the room that they need to have a keen awareness of issues and topics that go beyond the boardroom.
