5th edition

Welcome to the Global Investment Forum 2019

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
AFRICAN PROVERB

 

The theme for the fifth edition of the Global Investment Forum is Partnering for Progress, as in the context of global instability and digital revolution affecting economy, politics, society and environment, there is an urgent need to find new ways of working together.

Building partnership models which are long lasting, scalable, transformative, and which create shared value will become key.

We can already see that traditional boundaries between all sectors have become blurred and now with a wider governance role for business and civil society, disruptive opportunities are emerging at all levels, allowing innovation to flourish as never before.

Partnering for Progress is how we seize these new opportunities, taking full advantage of the knowledge, skills, reach, and experience that experts of all kinds offer each other to imagine sustainable systems in areas such as finance, energy, mobility, food, health and education amongst others. Not only to create better products and services, but also to produce more inclusive economic growth, advancing our common future and making a long-term impact. And it all starts by bringing people together...

The Global Investment Forum is an independent knowledge and exchange platform bringing together the global investment community – on the one side investors, family offices, asset managers and institutions, while on the other, corporates, entrepreneurs, and thought-leaders. The purpose of the Forum is to bridge the gap between different perspectives to come to a shared understanding and create lasting partnerships.

The Forum aims to achieve this through interactive keynote presentations and panel discussions with leaders in finance and politics, influencers and entrepreneurs, as well as sector-specific breakout sessions with industry specialists, blended with plenty of networking time in an intimate and laid-back environment.

We invite you to regularly visit our website for the latest agenda as well as speakers updates and look forward to welcoming you June 13th and 14th, in Geneva Switzerland.

Guest Of Honor

John
KERRY
68th United States Secretary of State (2013-2017)
John KERRY
68th United States Secretary of State (2013-2017)

On February 1, 2013, John Forbes Kerry was sworn in as the 68th Secretary of State of the United States, becoming the first sitting Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman to serve as Secretary in over a century. Kerry drew from this experience to provide the State Department with global stewardship on issues ranging from nuclear nonproliferation to radical extremists, to humanitarian challenges and the rising threat of climate change.

In 2013, Kerry became the first Secretary of State to meet with Iran’s Foreign Minister since the Iranian revolution of 1979. This meeting was the highest-level U.S. diplomatic contact with Iran in more than six years, and a key moment on the journey towards the eventual signing of the landmark 2015 agreement to prevent Iran from attaining a nuclear weapon.

Faced with the rising threat of global climate change, Kerry was also a key architect of the Paris Climate Accord, signing the historic agreement to reduce carbon emissions in 2016.
Kerry drew upon a lifetime of public service during his tenure as Secretary.

Shortly before he graduated from Yale University, Kerry volunteered for service in the United States Navy. He completed two tours of duty in Vietnam, including serving as a Swift Boat skipper patrolling the rivers of the Mekong Delta. Lt. Kerry returned home from service in Vietnam with a Silver Star, a Bronze Star with Combat V, and three Purple Hearts.

Back in the United States, Kerry felt compelled to speak out against the war in which he had served. Testifying at the invitation of Chairman J. William Fulbright before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee he would chair 38 years later, he asked the poignant question, “How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?” He also began a lifelong fight for his fellow veterans as a co-founder of the Vietnam Veterans of America, and later as a Senator who fought to secure veterans’ benefits, extension of the G.I. Bill for Higher Education, and improved treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder.

After receiving his law degree from Boston College Law School in 1976, Kerry went to work as a top prosecutor in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, where he took on organized crime, fought for victims’ rights, and created programs for rape counseling. He was elected Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts in 1982 and was elected to the United States Senate two years later.

In 2009, Kerry became Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, assuming a leadership role on key foreign policy and national security issues facing the United States, including Afghanistan and Pakistan, China, nuclear nonproliferation, and global climate change.

In addition to his 28 years on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Kerry also held senior positions on the Finance, Commerce, and Small Business committees. He served as a member of the bipartisan Joint Committee on Deficit Reduction, where he worked across party lines to try and reduce the country’s debt and strengthen our economy. Prior to his departure from the Senate, Kerry was the seventh-most senior Senator.

A best-selling author of A Call to Service: My Vision for a Better America and This Moment on Earth, Secretary Kerry released a memoir, titled Every Day Is Extra, in 2018. He is currently a Distinguished Fellow for Global Affairs at Yale University as well as the inaugural Visiting Distinguished Statesman for the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

Kerry was the Democratic Party’s nominee for President of the United States in 2004. He and his wife Teresa Heinz Kerry have two daughters, three sons, and seven grandchildren.

CHAIRMAN OF THE SOLAR IMPULSE FOUNDATION
Bertrand PICCARD
CHAIRMAN OF THE SOLAR IMPULSE FOUNDATION

Bertrand Piccard is the initiator behind Solar Impulse, the first airplane to fly around the world without a drop of fuel. He more recently launched the World Alliance for Efficient Solutions, and with it the goal of selecting #1000 solutions that protect the environment in a profitable way to bring them to decision makers by COP24 (2018) and encourage them to adopt more ambitious environmental targets and energy policies.

Originating from a family of explorers, it is in his DNA to go beyond the obvious and push back the boundaries of the possible, as he did with his two round-the-world flights – with Solar Impulse and before that non-stop in a balloon. A trained psychiatrist, Bertrand constantly sets out to challenge certitudes and convictions, and advocates for an innovative and pioneering spirit to improve the quality of life on Earth.

Envisioning ecology through the lens of profitability, promoting clean and profitable solutions that are “logical” more than just “eco-logical,” Bertrand demonstrates the opportunities that lie in solving climate change. With his dual identities as explorer and medical doctor, he has become an influential voice heard among the most distinguished institutions across the globe as a forward-thinking leader for progress and sustainability.

After taking the helm as President, was able to grow the firm 400% in 4 years and positioned it for an exit to an outside buyer in 2008.

Ross then launched Strategic Architect to help owners with revenue between 5M-100M optimize the performance of their firms and set up the proper transition plan for exit. Through this work, Ross has trained over 5,000 leaders on implementing cash flow, debt structures, sales strategies, and marketing plans in order to unlock value in their firms. He has worked closely with over 40 companies to help the owners plan for exit, merger, or transfer their business holdings.

He became increasingly focused on health when he moved to Vail, CO in 2012, and began to observe the intersection of nutrition and physical performance. He then supported his wife in the launch of her cookbook publishing company and followed her around the country to top culinary events to gain a better understand of food in
hospitality. Food has become a centering part of Ross’s family, and he works hard to educate, promote, and now invest in healthy food that will help his 3 boys grow strong!
