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.

In this charged political environment, Anja Manuel is able to cut through the rhetoric to offer an informed analysis of how President Trump’s policies might affect the United States’ relationships with foreign allies and enemies alike. Drawing on years of experience working at the State Department and as an international business consultant with the esteemed firm of RiceHadleyGates, Manuel breaks down the sometimes inflammatory foreign policy and trade pronouncements into thoughtful and understandable realities. From the likely direction of U.S. trade policy, to relations China and India, to what the instability of the Middle East and Russia’s assertive policies might mean for the U.S. businesses in the near term, Manuel can draw on expertise in every region of the world to provide answers to today's issues. Anja’s rational and measured approach to the issues has established her as an informed resource for audiences around the world.

Sylvia Mathews Burwell (Exclusively WSB)

As the leader of the Department of Health and Human Services during the height of the debate surrounding the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Sylvia Mathews Burwell provides a deep understanding and analysis of the pressing health-care issues that affect every American. In this crucial discussion, Burwell cuts through the rhetoric to share with audiences:

  • How coverage and costs may be affected by current plans to repeal and/or replace the ACA
  • What businesses and organizations of every size need to know to prepare for the future of health care, particularly regarding delivery system reform and the potential for increased affordability
  • How the U.S. and global economy may react to disruptions caused by the health-care reform process

Ernest Moniz (Exclusively WSB)

Nuclear energy continues to be controversial as it presents multiple opportunities and challenges, including a dominant carbon-free energy source; safety and waste management concerns; notable cost and schedule challenges; the security risks in having nuclear technology capability spread geographically, particularly in the presence of international terrorism; and a new focus on technological innovation to overcome or mitigate the challenges. Dr. Ernest Moniz draws on his extensive scientific and energy policy expertise to explain the complex relationship between these issues. In this in-depth, informative presentation, Dr. Moniz shares:

  • The evolving nuclear technology landscape and the need for a substantive shift in policy to support new approaches to nuclear energy, nuclear waste, and nuclear financing
  • The concerns about nuclear proliferation—particularly in the Middle East—in light of growing interest to deploy nuclear power and acquire nuclear technology expertise
  • The political, policy, and technical challenges of nuclear waste management

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.
