TRANSFORMING THE ARAB WORLD THROUGH UNIQUE INSIGHTS FROM BUSINESS AND POLITICAL LEADERS


APRIL 10 & 11, 2018

- SAUDI ARABIA

About Top CEO


A red carpet awards ceremony celebrating achievements of Top CEOs in the GCC.
Organized by TRENDS magazine and INSEAD business school, the Top CEO Awards targets
the region’s most affluent people, CEOs, CMOs, Presidents and VPs.
Top CEO is the only regional ranking based on the financial statements of publicly listed companies.
It is an award ceremony to celebrate the achievement of the region’s top players in the market,
making Top CEO the most credible and transparent awards in the region.






Conference


The Top CEO Conference is an open discussion among thought leaders, executives and officials.
Its purpose is to bring global issues – specifically, disruption – into a regional context, helping
executives and leaders look at the possible impact of such issues and consider the best ways to
take their organizations forward, while taking advantage of the coming transformations.
The conference’s format will comprise both on-record and off-record sessions,
allowing delegates to discuss and exchange ideas freely.






Awards


The awards function will be organized to honor business leaders of the GCC region.
The Top CEO list also looks into the transparency of a company.
All of the companies listed on GCC stock exchanges are evaluated.
At the Top CEO awards ceremony every year, the 100 best-performing companies and CEOs will be announced.
Mediaquest’s Top CEO Awards are distinctive in the GCC region because only
the CEOs of listed companies are eligible. The awards are based on the companies’ financials;
furthermore, the process is transparent and audited. TRENDS is also working closely with
INSEAD to ensure that the formula is the most accurate and also with Hawkamah
to ensure that corporate governance and disclosure criteria form a part of the ranking.





Top CEO 2018 Agenda

A glimpse of the schedule

The PARADIGM SHIFT


The Arab Gulf and the Middle East entered a new phase of development. The fundamental shifts in society, business and regional geopolitics are gradually happening, but have reached an acceleration point, thus a new era of rapid changes rising in the GCC, impacting businesses and society.
From privatization to competition, market deregulation and women empowerment among others, opportunities are multiple and benefits are enormous. However, business leaders and governments need to face significant challenges and roadblocks, among which are the implementation and execution of the strategy, human capital, deregulation and the transformation of an old bureaucratic administration.
Fueled by hope, this new era is empowering youth and supporting the emergence of startups. A new ecosystem will cement the profound transformation, to which the region is subject. On the regional and global levels, the paradigm shift is paving the way for new cooperations and political relations.
From Russia to China and Turkey, the Gulf is in dire need to strengthen its economic trade relations and business exchanges, along with diplomatic ties. To anchor itself deeply in society, this paradigm shift will need to bring tangible benefits for the majority of the population.
