The 2024 edition of the World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report, created in strategic partnership with Zurich, highlights the multiple areas where the world is at a critical inflection point. The report analyses global risks through three timeframes, to support decision-makers in balancing current crises and longer-term priorities. It draws on the collective intelligence of the world’s foremost risk experts and is a call to action, to collectively prepare for the next crisis the world may face, and in doing so, shape a pathway to a more stable, resilient world.

About CRO circle
The CRO Circle institutionalizes the need to debate thoughts and ideas with your C- and Board level colleagues informally. It helps you to identify risk topics that you didn’t think of yet. It provides you with very exclusive networking opportunities and surely new friendships. The “CRO Circle” targets the most senior risk managers, the leaders who are responsible to identify and manage the risk for a company comprehensively. A CRO Circle seat is available as a part of our Corporate Packages.
