that is if you are "invited" and can afford the six figures sum cost plus travel and accommodations etc.
real cost was eloquently reported by Andrew Ross Sorkin "A Hefty Price for Entry to Davos http://nyti.ms/13ZkXx3 "
& of course Andrew's latest piece on " Prophesies Made in Davos Don't Always Come True http://nyti.ms/10kdrYS "
seems to be WeF is doing great stuff but for their own target audience but it is a brilliant and super efficient marketing machine, lets hope it is used to making measurable and sustainable impact ... we live in hope.
Don't forget, a lot of these top business leaders that go to WeF now are as reported out of touch and not easily emphasise with "not so well off" (must read: by Paul Piff: The Money-Empathy Gap http://nymag.com/news/features/money-brain-2012-7/ )
IMHO, I think we need a trusted network of pre-qualified business leaders of mid-market plus firms and focus on key deliverable rather than PR sound bites.. make sense !??
