Trust – The Currency of the 21st Century

Trust is both the currency of the 21st century and the most essential leadership competency of this new global economy. 

With trust at record lows, how do we restore the deficit of trust and rebuild our belief in our institutions, in the character of those charged to run them, in our multi-generational workforce and with each other?

Trust is the currency and glue of influence in every relationship, at every level, in every system.  Whether it is a friendship, family relationship, or business partnership, any genuine bond is built on trust. Without trust, you have nothing.

Professor Alan Hilburg, President and CEO of HilburgMalan, a global leader in advising and guiding CEOs and other leaders in the restoration of trust in institutions will share the following:

- Five steps to galvanising trust across your stakeholder ecosystem
- The most effective strategies to secure hard-earned stakeholder trust
- Mitigating internal threats that could lead to external trust erosion
- Case studies of overcoming trust setbacks
