IQ-EQ Crossroads ’23: The rise of conscious capitalism

02 Mar 2023 | 1 minute read

After the success of its first three editions, IQ-EQ’s flagship industry event, IQ-EQ Crossroads, returned on 7 February 2023 to discuss the exciting concept of ‘conscious capitalism’.

IQ-EQ Crossroads is a unique cross-sector conference that brings experts together to examine the latest positive trends impacting the global investment community. Conscious capitalism, the theme of our 2023 event, is the philosophy that businesses should serve all significant stakeholders, including society and the environment.

It was a full house in London at the Gherkin on 7 February, where our guests were treated to a fascinating keynote speech from Dr Philippa “Pippa” Malmgren, a renowned economist who specialises in the world economy, geopolitics and technology.
