In the next decade and a half, Asia will surpass the combined strength of North America and Europe in economic might, population size and military spending.

From her front-row view of this colossal shift, first at the State Department and now as an advisor to American CEOs, Anja Manuel escorts the audience on an intimate tour of the corridors of power of Asia’s predominant powers—China and India—to reveal what makes each country “tick” and what Americans doing business there should know. Through vibrant stories that have been described as “both heartbreaking and funny,” she reveals how each country is working to surmount enormous challenges—from the crushing poverty of Indian slum dwellers and Chinese factory workers, to outrageous corruption scandals, rotting rivers and unbreathable air, to managing their citizens’ discontent, and how some of these challenges create opportunities for joint work with American companies.

Based on her forthcoming book This Brave New World, Manuel shows us an optimistic path—American politicians, businesses and ordinary citizens can bring China and India along as partners rather than alienating one or both, and thus extend our own leadership in the world.

Every day, American businesses must decide where in the world to sell, invest or source parts of their supply chain. How do you determine which emerging markets to enter first? And how do you do it both effectively and ethically? Based on her extensive experience in government and now leading businesses through these difficult decisions, Anja Manuel shares her insight and illuminating stories about how to engage local governments and business partners from Bogota to Bangalore.

In today’s super-wired, highly digital society, humans still crave social interaction and relationships. In business, creating strong relationships is the key to achieving success, both individually and as an organization.

What’s the secret for cultivating successful relationships, particularly in business? As more and more lives play out virtually, connections can sometimes feel less than fulfilling. From Facebook to LinkedIn, Twitter to Foursquare, it’s important to remember just how powerful it can be to reach beyond the fiber optics and make that physical connection.

In the Relationship Revolution, Seth Mattison will explore five key insights that will equip you for building better, stronger, more authentic relationships in the new world of work.

Attendees of the Relationship Revolution will gain:

  • Insights on the roadblocks preventing us from forming meaning relationships in the digital age
  • New perspectives on the power of empathy, authenticity and vulnerability to foster lasting bonds
  • A road map and follow-up plan to nurture and grow lasting relationships

For future-focused organizations to succeed in the 21st century, a bold approach to management is needed. An approach where freedom, trust and experimentation are not only embraced but encouraged.

The challenge is most organizations today have been constructed upon a model not built for this century. A model based on principles of top-down command and control, centralized power and information. Characteristics not equipped for the dynamic changes happening in the new world of work.

In this program, Seth Mattison offers a fresh perspective and call to action for leadership mavericks and trailblazers at all levels to begin the work of dismantling the rigid fixed structures holding organizations back from thriving in the new world of work.

Attendees of The Shift will gain:

  • Deep insights into the make-or-break challenges and roadblocks that hold leaders back from unleashing freedom inside the organization
  • Fresh perspectives on the changing landscape and management models for developing talent and driving innovation
  • Confidence to challenge the status quo and a clear set of guideposts for conducting high-value, low-risk management experiments
  • A framework to guide their journey into the new world of work

A power shift has occurred in the world of finance services. No longer do institutions and authority figures hold the keys.

As our world becomes increasingly dynamic and connected, the classically standard ways in which we work have simply become irrelevant in today’s workforce. Many companies are struggling not only to understand and accept this certainty, but more importantly to identify the key catalysts behind this transformation. Patty McCord explores how demographics, technology and consumer transparency have already changed the way we work, explains why the idea of a “permanent employee” is no longer a realistic prospect, and encourages audiences to look to the future. In this innovative, informative and forward-thinking presentation, McCord emboldens audiences to embrace change and provides critical insight for companies that want to be ahead of the game as the future of work continues to advance.

Denis McDonough (Exclusively WSB)

As a leader of one of the world’s most complex and heavily scrutinized organizations, McDonough provides insight for businesses on internal and external crisis communications, how to immediately respond to issues from global events to public perceptions, and leading teams and organizations through change while under extreme pressure.
