Davos 2018: Tidjane Thiam on the future of the world

Building a better world starts with a conscience, not just with knowledge, explained Tidjane Thiam at a recent Varkey Foundation event during the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2018 in Davos.

The CEO of Credit Suisse, a multinational financial services company, discussed the struggles faced by Africa throughout the 80s and why his children give him reasons to be optimistic for the future of our world. 

“We need to continue the conversation on how do we produce not just knowledgeable people but people who do not feel that the only metric worthwhile in the world is net worth”.
