The Summit, organized by the based in Davos, Switzerland World Communications Forum Association was entitled “Leadership During Turbulent Times”.

We were happy to have such outstanding top professionals with diverse experience and culture, make friends, interact with companies and research units, and expand our contact networks globally.”, said Maxim Behar, the President and one of the Founders of WCFA.

On behalf of the Davos Municipality, the newly elected Davos Mayor Philipp Wilhelm greeted the speakers at the event and thanked the President Maxim Behar, who opened and moderated the Summit, for annually organizing such events in the famous Davos Congress Centre more than 10 years already.

“In difficult times like these it’s even more essential to talk about how to communicate with the people and it is most important because we cannot afford to lose people’s trust. I’m really looking forward to meeting you in person here in Davos.”, the Mayor added.
