Many of the factors behind Silicon Valley’s rise are now evident in China in places like Haidian, the high-tech district of Beijing. Will China claim its historical role as inventor par excellence? Under-estimating the possibility of China’s ability to innovate could be catastrophic to U.S. competitiveness. Over-estimation will drive paranoia and protectionism. Tom Manning offers a new interpretation of global innovation with China at the epicenter.

Mike Milken’s highly informative and entertaining talks are augmented with multimedia support—photos, videos and crisply refined data. He covers a wide range of topics, including:

  • Leadership in Turbulent Times
  • Toward a More Prosperous Future
  • Things That Will Change the World

The energy world has changed dramatically over the last decade and faces continuing change as the world commits to a low-carbon future. Oil and natural gas production in the United States has grown dramatically and impacted global markets, while coal use has dropped precipitously. Renewables costs have become competitive with those of traditional electricity sources, while new and existing nuclear power faces regulatory and cost challenges. The inevitable march towards lower-carbon energy challenges infrastructure, policy, and business models. A timely discussion of the complex interplay of these trends includes:

  • The technology, policy, and business model innovations needed to advance all energy sources over the next years and decades
  • Critical infrastructure needs
  • The development of global energy markets and implications for energy security
  • The continued need for partnerships between public and private entities and the importance of state and regional innovation strategies

The electricity system is critical to our economic competitiveness, our environmental stewardship, and our national security. The traditional means of and business models for generating, distributing, and using electricity are all being challenged. Dr. Ernest Moniz will address the issues end to end:

  • How natural gas, wind, and solar are dominating new generation capacity, while creating new system challenges for managing variable energy sources

  • The electricity transmission and distribution systems have new demands for reliability and resilience, with information technology integration providing solutions but also cybersecurity challenges

  • The challenges facing traditional utility business models at a time of flat demand and distributed generation, and the opportunity for major value creation in new consumer services presented by the “internet of things”

  • The need for electricity regulatory structures to transform to match the evolving system

Massive forces of change are shaping the Next Economy. Demographic shifts around the world, powerful new technologies, and new organizational forms are creating change for organizations and individuals. Futurist Ian Morrison, with his incisive Scottish wit, will explain where the global economy has been and where it is headed, with particular emphasis on what it all means for American audiences whether they be corporations, non profit organizations or individuals. Drawing on more than 25 years experience as a futurist, Ian provides a lively and engaging view of what lies ahead and what it means for you and your organization.

The defining challenge of our time is how do we create solid and sustained economic growth and continue to meaningfully put a dent in poverty across the world. In essence, how do we restore robust growth in the Eurozone, the United States and around the industrialized economies creaking under mounting debt, challenging demographics and stagnating productivity? And how do we boost growth in the developing world—home to 90 percent of the world’s population and where, on average, 70 percent of the population is less than 25 years old—as a period of unprecedented economic expansion begins to slow in some places and regress in others? Dambisa Moyo will address the structural and tactical implications of global macroeconomic trends and why this time is different.
