James Garrison, President, State of the World Forum
We believe there is tremendous potential synergy between the Forum, whose mission is to establish a network of global leaders focused on those values and actions that should inform the next phase of human development, and Saatchi & Saatchi, which is dedicated to being an ideas company and has a global capacity in the communications field.

We are impressed with the potential for a partnership between our two organisations as an example of what new forums of collaboration are possible as the world moves into a future demanding new forms of power-sharing and co-venturing. Compelling ideas can develop through what we may potentially do together.
