Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala (Exclusively WSB)

As the chief economic leader of a fiscally decentralized government and a fierce defender and agent of good governance policy for developing nations, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala tells the story of a time when the worldview of Nigeria was seemingly hopeless and how, by working with the economic team, she subsequently turned around the largest economy in Africa. Through storylines of dedication and committed teamwork, she tells the narrative of development economics in action. With unmatched insights from the front lines of battle, she explores weak economic systems and institutions, global implications of economic expansion in developing countries and what it takes to spearhead negotiations for widespread structural reforms.

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala (Exclusively WSB)

For years, the GDP of many nations has been dependent on oil. In the face of a global energy and oil pricing meltdown, as well as increased slowdown in China, what can the financial world expect? And how can they prepare for what might happen next? Earning worldwide acclaim for her leadership on the finances of the oil- and gas-dependent economy of Nigeria, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala brings unique qualifications to tackle these crucial questions. She focuses on the global impact of increased commodity price volatility, energy policy and related climate change issues. She is an adept speaker on issues of macroeconomic and public finance management, infrastructure development, job creation and the challenges of economic development. Okonjo-Iweala provides judicious analysis and thoughtful insight on the most urgent trends shaping these issues.

How can big companies capitalize on the startup movement happening right outside their doors?

Most innovation talks focus on processes for incremental innovations—not this one. Learn the specific techniques, timetables and financial investments required to innovate disruptively within an enterprise context.
