Topic Leaders

We bring thought leadership to the table.

To bridge the gap between Speakers, Leaders of Today and Leaders of Tomorrow, we nominate and invite a pool of opinion leaders, moderators and experts to mediate in the debates at the St. Gallen Symposium, called Topic Leaders.

Their role is to infuse the symposium’s proceedings with a sharp focus on topical content and to challenge all participant groups to delve deeper into their own opinions on any given topic. They create friction, ask the right questions and bring the debates to life.

Have a look at the past line-ups.
