With a pledge Committed To Improving The State of the World, The World Economic Forum, now in its 48th year, remains an unmatched global platform in drawing and engaging the attention of international world leaders across industries, from business to academia, government to sustainability. This year’s theme is defined by a simple premise which requires rather complicated problem-solving, one which seeks to create a global debate in shaping and answering the questions around: Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World.

For 12 Hay Hill, the 2018 Davos theme focused on co-design, co-creation and collaboration is one which is strongly aligned with our values as a private members business club in the heart of Mayfair. As a private members club, we pride ourselves on our hand-picked body of members; leaders, thinkers, pioneers. Curated to serve our members’ needs, collaboration happens seamlessly at 12 Hay Hill through chance encounters and member-to-member interaction. Chance encounters create the perfect sweet spot to nurture narratives which drive innovation, advance business growth and intelligence though the sharing of ideas and foster true creativity.

So, how can collaboration elevate the state of the business world today?

Self-awareness is one remarkable way. Knowing exactly who you are, and what your business stands for is one thing – convincing someone else that you do; is another. The collaboration of ideas, when discussed in an open, engaging and constructive way can be transformative and wonderful. Honest debate and co-sharing encourages leaders to learn about another’s point of view, which can strengthen business concepts and, also, iron out weaknesses. Perspective is clarity.

Collaborative leadership is also elevating the business world in more ways than one. A new, ever-evolving take on leadership, the collaborative leader is one who creates a shared future through allowing others to share their vision, opinions and ideas. This view of collaboration in the work place which values flat hierarchy and collective thinking rather than traditional forms of top-down corporate dictatorship; empowers employees as equals and drives high levels of growth for individuals and businesses alike.

Specifically created for our members who shall not be attending Davos this year or for those who want to more deeply engage and examine the topics covered at the 2018 World Economic Forum, we will host the exclusive 12 Hay Hill Davos Debrief on Wednesday, 31st January 2018 which will be presented by senior Financial Times commentators sharing first-hand accounts of; what was discussed, who made waves, what was achieved and what this all means for 2018 across; geopolitics, global economics, finance and business.
