Jill Schlesinger is sought the world over to address a wide range of audiences, from Fortune 500 companies and leading tech companies to international trade associations and beyond. She speaks on a wide variety of topics to include but not limited to:

  • Power and Influence: Personal Brand and Communication: A discussion on how to communicate effectively, the importance of one’s personal brand and other ways to become more successful.
  • Authentic Women: Navigating Your Career While Being True to Yourself: An exploration of the choices successful women make every day and how to expand influence and power as the corporate pyramid narrows.

Global bond markets are the ultimate arbiters of sensible economic policy. To the extent that voters push government officials toward self-defeating, protectionist policies, investors should ask for a higher return. Emerging markets like Brazil and South Africa learned the hard way that borrowing internationally requires them to maintain a certain economic orthodoxy that doesn’t always win votes. During the European financial crisis, bond spreads forced political leaders to make deeply unpopular decisions to save the euro.

What signs are visible in today’s markets to suggest discomfort with populist forces or worries about new challenges to trade rules? Will votes for Brexit and Donald Trump ultimately lead to higher borrowing costs?  How should multinational companies whose business models depend on long supply chains and frictionless border crossings adjust?

As Chinese financial markets grow larger and more integrated, volatility will no longer be contained to the accounts of niche emerging markets investors. Rapidly expanding financial flows to and from China, even in the context of capital controls, mean that shocks from Chinese markets will increasingly reverberate globally. U.S. and European regulators still struggle to establish coordinating mechanisms to manage bank failures and market turmoil on both sides of the Atlantic, but they have only the dimmest understanding of China’s largest financial institutions and Western exposures to a sharp Chinese downturn.

What can Western regulators do to improve transparency into China’s banking and insurance giants? In the next crisis, will Chinese officials engage openly with foreign counterparts to restore confidence in markets or will they revert to comfortable habits of pretending the problem will go away?

 

John Snow (Exclusively WSB)

Financial markets have witnessed an alarming series of events that promise to radically alter the global economy and financial systems for years to come. Much of the situation can be attributed to the creation of financial instruments that were meant to disaggregate risk, but instead led to widespread degradation of the economic architecture. As the executive and legislative branches of government work to contain the situation and restore confidence, how will these reforms impact corporate America, the domestic and global economy, and average citizens alike. In this presentation the esteemed economic and business leader, John Snow, analyzes the moves that brought the economy to the brink of disaster and suggests what decisions must be made to move the economy forward – both in the short term and the long term. In addition, Snow shares:

  • His insight into the consequences of new policy decisions such as the creation of a new financial agency to provide industry oversight
  • Who will emerge as the global winners and losers
  • Will the shoe drop on other aspects of the market that are largely unregulated such as the world of private equity?
