Since 2005, BT has been a strategic partner of the World Economic Forum - an independent organisation committed to improving the state of the world by bringing together leaders across public and private sectors to shape global, regional and industry agendas.

As one of 120 strategic partners, BT actively participates in the Forum’s Annual Meeting, regional summits and strategic events, plus a range of communities and initiatives throughout the year.

We are an active member of the ‘Community of Chairmen’, through Jan du Plessis, BT Group Chairman and the ‘International Business Council’, ‘IT/Telecoms’ and ‘Media & Entertainment’ Industry Governors’ groups, through Gavin Patterson, BT Group CEO. 

BT experts contribute to Forum-led industry projects and are also members of WEF communities. To learn more about our engagement please visit the ‘Forum Communities and Initiatives’ page.
