Getting to the Future: Ten Principal Drivers of the Global Economy
Professor Emeritus of Business Administration, Chicago Booth and Principal, Marvin Zonis + Associates, Inc.
Powerful forces are at work that will transform the world within this decade. Many of these forces are recognized but their extraordinary power is not. Technology is on an exponential growth curve. Governments are losing power to supra-national organizations, companies, and non-governmental organizations. Powerful demographic trends have resulted in fewer births everywhere but especially in the rich countries as well as in dramatically aging populations. These and the other "Global Drivers" will be examined and their implications for business and governments detailed.
Come join us for a lively evening of networking and insights!
What Accenture had to say about Marvin Zonis at a global energy conference:
"I am very pleased to report that you were the highest rated speaker of the entire conference. You also hold the second highest rating in the entire 14-year history...second only to Margaret Thatcher."
