The First Global Conference on Creating Value

May 23-24, 2018, Leicester Castle Business School

(De Montfort University, Leicester, UK)

In conjunction with the Customer Value Foundation and the Journal of Creating Value


How do we create and assess ‘value’ in a turbulent global economy?

Value creation underpins all business transactions and engagement. We all seek value for our businesses, as well as for ourselves and for our society. However, because we are so immersed in our day-to-day functional management, we often overlook opportunities for value creation, possibly to the detriment of our businesses and society (Eisenhardt & Martin, 2000). Successful businesses and leaders create value for their eco-systems which include themselves, their companies, customers, employees, partners and society, mostly unconsciously, yet there are challenges in gauging and assessing ‘value’ (Hinterhuber, 2017). This conference is a wake-up call to improve our understanding of the concept of value and, moreover, to find ways of creating value consciously and more abundantly which will in turn allow us to compete more effectively, to build social value and to thrive and be ready for the challenges of a changing and disruptive world. Carl Jung stated: “unless you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life, and you will call it fate.”
