They explore the pressing theme of "Global Goals and How to Achieve Them," discussing the transformative role of innovation, the ethical implications of Artificial Intelligence, and the tension between business and humanity in our digital age.


 The conversation also delves into the shift in customer focus from people to shareholders, the concept of "homo culturalis" versus "homo economicus," and the evolving role of social media companies in the context of global objectives.
