Like all editions of The Global Business Summit, the sixth edition also has several global speakers. In the session titled “Trust in the Age of Disruption, Tony Hall, BBC Director General, Tony Hill said: “A democracy that can’t rely on access to truth is a democracy undermined. And a society in which two sides of a debate have no need to engage with one another on the basis of a genuine appreciation of what is happening is a society profoundly weakened”.
