This is my most popular keynote, in which I present three ideas to the audience:
1. We are not in a Recovery.
2. Things will never be normal again.
3. Your business can still grow, remain profitable (and have fun) in a time where things seem crazy.
Most of the great businesses have been built in chaotic, uncertain times. This keynote presentation covers the future trends that are changing the world and how competition is changing right along with it:
- Demographic shift
- Post-bubble economics
- Peak debt
- Oil, coal, electricity, wind and other energy transitions
- Global competition in yet more unexpected places
And to keep people from hyperventilating, I cover the great success stories of companies and countries that faced nuclear annihilation, world war, bankruptcy and terrible 70s haircuts to achieve tremendous success despite the odds.
