Top businessmen, politicians and academics from major research institutes discussed leadership and management at the European Executive Forum March 21-22 in Warsaw.

Together with panelists, the forum participants tried to find answers to questions about the kind of management Europe needs to overcome its ongoing problems. They also brainstormed about solutions and ideas to help European businesses deal with the challenges of unpredictable times.

The European Executive Forum was attended by prominent politicians, academics and business leaders. The organizers, the Executive Club and the Amicus Europae Foundation, received support from the respected INSEAD business school based in France and the IESE business school in Spain and Polish institutions of higher education, including the Warsaw School of Economics (SGH), Kozminski University, the Warsaw University of Technology Business School and the University of Warsaw.

Panel discussions during the European Executive Forum included “Historical Leadership and Future Leadership,” moderated by former Polish president Aleksander Kwa¶niewski with three former prime ministers as the panelists: Giuliano Amato, Italian prime minister in 1992-1993; José Maria Aznar, Spanish prime minister in 1996-2004; and Jan Krzysztof Bielecki, Polish prime minister in 1991, now chairman of Prime Minister Donald Tusk’s Economic Council. The business community was represented by Jacek Krawiec, CEO of PKN Orlen, Poland’s largest fuel corporation.

The first day of the forum ended with a speech given by the event’s special guest, Joschka Fischer, the German foreign minister in 1998-2005. Fischer told the conference about global threats and challenges facing Europe and the EU. He said that seemingly distant events, such as uprisings in Arab countries, could affect the EU and should not be underestimated.

On the second day, the forum attendees focused on leadership in business. The speakers included Prof. Andrzej KoĽmiński, who together with IT industry insiders debated whether the era of managers had come to an end.

The forum included a panel discussion on the psychological aspects of leadership. Entitled “Emotion-Based Leadership,” the discussion was moderated by Wojciech Eichelberger, the director of the Psychoimmunology Institute in Warsaw, and the panelists included renowned managers and business theorists.

One of the forum’s most popular events was the closing debate, moderated by Aleksander Kwa¶niewski. Panelists included Jan Krzysztof Bielecki; Joschka Fischer; Alfred Gusenbauer, who was the chancellor of Austria in 2007-2008; business tycoon Jan Kulczyk; and Krzysztof Obłój, a professor at the University of Warsaw.
