Easy money is having diminishing effect after years of accommodative policies. Dr. Raghuram Rajan weighs the significant risks incorporated by doing much more, with the difficulties of exiting from easy money. Not only will the first central bank that moves face significant costs, they could also be accused of failing their domestic mandate of maintaining inflation at reasonable levels. Dr. Rajan discusses possible ways policy could evolve, as well as the consequences to global asset prices, inflation and risk.    

Anders Fogh Rasmussen (Exclusively WSB)

Drawing on his three decades at the center of European and global affairs, Anders Fogh Rasmussen shares his extensive experience leading international organizations and driving change. In his tenure as Secretary General of NATO, he transformed it into a fitter, faster, and more flexible organization. Audiences will receive unmatched practical insights that will help prepare them for future challenges. Rasmussen’s approach to negotiations includes three specific rules that can be easily applied to any business deal:

  • Active listening: Listen to your counterpart’s side and make them aware you’re listening
  • Empathy: Get an understanding of where they are coming from and how they feel
  • Create winners: All participants in a negotiation must be seen as winners

Two political parties that have no constitutional right to be the only organizations that control the American government have dominated American politics for decades. Billionaire Peter Ackerman and Dylan Ratigan are on a crusade to make American politics more competitive by opening up the Presidential Debate stage and changing the way people vote. In this speech Dylan explains how they are going to do it.

 

As founder of Helical Holdings, Ratigan knows first hand the ability for modern resource technology to secure the world. In this speech he tells stories of his travels in China, Myanmar, the Middle East and rural North America to provide evidence of just how valuable large networks of solar powered, hydroponic farming systems can be to resolve poverty, create jobs and improve health.

 

Disruptions are ever-present and it’s easy for organizations to get out of tune and out of sync. This interactive experience takes your audience into what disruption really sounds like, then transforms that dissonance to resolution. The stunning new composition that is created reveals the wisdom and capability of the audience to achieve their highest potential.

Have you ever heard a great-sounding band or orchestra where everyone is a soloist? It doesn’t exist. For over a decade, the Gallup polls reveal that four out of five employees are disengaged in their work, costing the U.S. economy over $500 billion annually in lost revenue.

The Keynote Maestro shares personal stories of how minorities and women have opened doors to his ongoing success from being hired by Brazilian producer Sergio Mendes at age 23 to being the only white guy in the all black band named "Earth, Wind and Fire.” In addition to his collaborations with Dr. Martin Luther King’s daughter, Yolanda King as guest author in Open My Eyes, Open My Soul alongside Stevie Wonder, Muhammad Ali, Robert Kennedy, Jr. and Maya Angelou, he’s played the GRAMMY’s with Prince, recorded with Madonna for her major motion picture debut, Evita and toured the world to packed stadiums with Latin rock legend Carlos Santana.

Freddie Ravel drives home the message that when we embrace teamwork and inclusion, our collective Melodies, Harmonies and Rhythms achieve the ultimate SCORE—a world where human potential is raised and diversity drives organizations to gain the distinct advantage needed in today's hyper-competitive marketplace.

Illuminating the properties of Human Harmonics to resolve conflict and create breakthroughs, this program will help your team learn how to better listen, engage and achieve collaborative success.

Call it the paradox of the connected workforce: If it is easier than ever to connect with our colleagues, customers and collaborators, then why do we still find it so challenging to actually work together and get things done? Many of us spend the majority of our working hours in meetings, on the phone or responding to emails, yet if we crunch the numbers, we often have little return to show for that substantial time investment. That’s because collaboration is inefficient and culture is hard to get right. Data shows that in many organizations, the most helpful employees are suffering from collaborative overload, and so-called “star performers” often do little to help their colleagues. At the same time, despite leadership’s best efforts to be mission-driven and values-focused, developing a strong workplace culture is still more of a mystery than an established practice supported by analysis and insights. “Collaboration” and “culture” are big buzzwords for a reason—when done right, they can make work more productive and more meaningful. This talk shows how researchers and industry leaders are turning to data and analytics for insights about how organizations and communities can work together better.

Much has been made lately about the importance of having meaningful work, both for our own well-being and for our organizations’ success. But what exactly do we mean when we talk about meaningful work? This talk unpacks that important buzzword to reveal the four roads to more fulfilling careers—Work is more meaningful when: 1. It leads to clear and tangible results, be they finished work products or people we have helped; 2. It offers financial, social and psychological rewards that align with our values and goals; 3. It fosters a sense of community and enables valuable relationships, both in the office and at home; and 4. It resonates with our identity, our values and the people we would like to be. For general audiences, this framework is especially relevant for anyone interested in getting more from work than just a paycheck, whether they are just entering the workforce, considering a career change or trying to make the most of the job they have. Within organizations, this talk offers insights about how leaders can motivate employees, improve engagement and strengthen culture, and how employees can craft their work (and lives) to be more meaningful.

Tom Ridge (Exclusively WSB)

The inextricable link between security and prosperity in a progressively interdependent world has generated enormous business, political and economic benefits but also consequent challenges. As the interdependence grows, so grows the vulnerability. Terrorism, natural disasters, criminal acts, vendor issues, accidents and geopolitical influences can have debilitating effects on economies and thus have put issues such as supply chain security, cross-border collaborations and security investment at the forefront of every proactive business and government agenda. Secretary Ridge will share his views of today’s risk-centric environment and how to minimize those risks in favor of greater resiliency and security across the globe.
