Think about what you learned in school: The Pythagorean theorem. The Gettysburg Address. Music. Art. These are important things to learn about; however, sometimes we’re taught them in lieu of a subject central to everything we do – money. In their most frequently requested speech, David and Tom Gardner take the audience through a list of simple financial lessons to fix the bad habits (credit-card debt; managed mutual funds) and begin the good (investing for our future). Along the way, they put the financial world in its proper context, explain the at times confusing terminology of the financial world and give audiences the confidence and clarity to make good, sound investment choices.

Who’s teaching our kids about money? Though our high school graduates enter a world where job searches, salaries, expenses and an extraordinary array of personal finance decisions—both dangerous and opportune—await, very few of this nation’s high schools or universities offers even basic lessons on saving, investing, or planning for the future. 
As educators, The Motley Fool co-founders feel there are some things young adults should know about investing and finance. Experienced speaking to both student and parent audiences, they have put together a humorous and engaging speech, based on their successful book, The Motley Fool Investment Guide for Teens. Some of the practical advice they’ll share:

  • Money equals opportunity
  • Every dollar spent is an investment 
  • You don’t need to be rich to get into—or succeed at—investing 
  • You have more money to invest than you think

The Motley Fool will deliver the know-how young adults need to become more sophisticated investors, financial planners – and spenders.

Ian Goldin has a unique insight into the future. Drawing on the frontiers of research at Oxford and elsewhere, he provides illuminating perspectives on the major changes in society and technology which are likely to take place over coming decades. His presentations focus on the big picture, looking at the implications for businesses, governments and individual choice.

Professor Goldin explains the connection between social and technical change, and draws out the lessons of the past thirty years of unprecedented globalisation. He discusses whether the tidal wave of globalisation will continue and whether past trends are sustainable.

He examines first population and demographic trends, considering the implications for pensions, retirement, dependency and migration patterns to the Year 2050. Next, he considers economic trends, considering whether the current dramatic instability in the market is likely to be a short-term deviation from longer term trends. He considers the rise of Asia and emerging markets, providing perspectives on economic growth and opportunities over the coming 10+ years. The connections between social, technical and economic change and market growth and consumer behaviour are unpacked. Professor Goldin provides fresh insights into the future of computing, biotechnology, nano-technology, genetics and the likely implications of frontier technologies.

Ian Goldin is a leading global thinker on the future. He has extraordinary wide ranging knowledge and an ability to combine the latest in research with insights from the inside of global politics and business.

Ian Goldin is a world leading expert on the new forms of systemic risk which he identifies as arising from turbo charged globalisation associated with sharply increased levels of connectivity and technical change. Drawing on his book The Butterfly Defect: Globalization and Systemic Risk, Goldin shows how we need to rethink our understanding of risk and develop new strategies of resilience to prevent cascading shocks overwhelming our businesses and society.
