The Global Peter Drucker Forum is an international management conference dedicated to the management philosophy of Peter Drucker. Drucker, who lived from 1909 to 2005, was a management professor, writer, and consultant, frequently referred to as a “management guru.” The Forum is held annually in November, in Drucker’s home town of Vienna, Austria and is put on by the Peter Drucker Society Europe, an affiliate of the Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University.

The Theme of the 2013 forum is “Managing Complexity”. The forum is held on November 14 and 15 in Vienna, Austria. Jouko Ahvenainen, Founder and Chairman of Grow VC, speaks in the forum in the session “Amplifying Strategy: Lessons from the Vanguard Companies”. His presentation especially focuses on the changes in the investing, broker dealer and investment banking markets.
Crowdfunding is bringing changes to startup company funding, but at the same time, similar models can change the whole investing market significantly. Open online market places, virtual investment banks and a new online retail channel for the private investments have influence on the company funding from the seed phase to IPO. The same models also work with other assets, like real estate, commodities and energy sources. Grow VC is a vanguard company to build these new models.
The forum has several top level speakers, like Tim Brown from IDEO, Umair Haque – the writer of The New Capitalist Manifesto, Natarajan Chandrasekaran - CEO of Tata Consulting, and professors from the leading universities like London Business School, Insead and ETH Zurich. Partners of the event include Harvard Business Review, Financial Times, Capgemini and 3M.
The forum will be broadcasted worldwide live on November 14 and 15. Those who are unable to attend physically will still have the opportunity to tune in at no charge. Registration for the complimentary live stream is available in this link.
