Our final newsletter of 2021 begins with a salute to the young generation – our future. Because we invited the winners of 2020 as well as those of 2021, the participation of entrants from the Peter Drucker Challenge and Entrepreneurship Schools at this year’s Forum was the highest ever. Their energy and enthusiasm were infectious – in a good way. We were delighted finally to meet them all in person.
Over the past 24 months we have planned and made more innovations than in the previous 10 years put together: the digital Day of Drucker, digital workshops and roundtables, Drucker Forum TV, Unconference – all with the aim of expanding our audience, widening the scope of our intervention, and galvanizing more people to come together around Peter Drucker’s enduring legacy.
We are convinced that this is needed more than ever. At a time when extreme ideologies are raising social temperatures around the world, the need for exchanges privileging reason and rationality with the human being at the center has never been greater.
The theme of next year’s discussions – Performance That Matters: Sparking the Entrepreneurial Spirit – has been carefully chosen to express both our confidence in the future and our belief in the human. We want to refocus on one of the fundamental Drucker tenets: creating a society that is higher performing while keeping the human imperative at its heart. Watch the announcement. Now in preparation, the debates will be digital during the year, in person in Vienna. Stay tuned for further info in 2022.
A happy festive season and the very best for 2022 from myself and all the team
Some distraction from reality

‘The dialogue between state-of-the-art researchers and front-edge practitioners and the integration of ‘young people’ adding a fresh and thought-provoking dimension into the packed program complete the mix, establishing the Forum as a place where the future is created.’
