The South American Business Forum (SABF) is an event that takes place annually in Buenos Aires for 3 days in the month of August. Each year the forum receives 100 outstanding university students from around the world, together with 40 leaders of business, political and academic areas. The event will explore topics of global relevance and particularly applicable to the reality of South America. We expect that, through dialog and the interaction between the current leaders and the future leaders, a contribution to the development of the region can be made.
The topic of the 2008 SABF, “Empowering Agents of Change”, pretends to analyze the existing change agents in the world and particularly those which have become blurred in South America, with the objective of finding out the causes of their lack of involvement and finding solutions to achieve their goals.
