Viewpoint is an annual event attracting 150-200 business leaders both alumni and non-alumni, with the objective to engage participants in a provocative debate with two CEOs on a controversial business topic.

INSEAD Professor Marc Le Menestrel

Next to geopolitical changes, the war in Ukraine also raises a lot of questions and debate around doing business in/with Russia, the role of companies in being “a force for good”. Therefore, questions that could be covered during the debate are:
• What will be the consequence on (European) supply of energy and raw materials? How should companies prepare themselves?
• Are Russia and Europe bound to drift further apart in the next couple of years? Is the Western world doing the right thing by isolating Russia? What are the risks? What does this mean for companies doing business in/with Russia?
• Will the worldwide monetary system change in the years to come?
• How should countries and businesses look at (in)dependency of non-democratic countries? Is there a risk/return analysis?
