Every day, American businesses must decide where in the world to sell, invest or source parts of their supply chain. How do you determine which emerging markets to enter first? And how do you do it both effectively and ethically? Based on her extensive experience in government and now leading businesses through these difficult decisions, Anja Manuel shares her insight and illuminating stories about how to engage local governments and business partners from Bogota to Bangalore.

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.

Ernest Moniz (Exclusively WSB)

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 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.

Serving at a critical juncture in our nation’s history, Admiral Mike Mullen, America’s top military advisor to the President and the Secretary of Defense through two administrations, was a key influencer in shaping the security of our nation for decades to come. A man of unparalleled experience, vision and integrity, Mullen shares with audiences his belief that, “Our financial health is directly related to our national security,” and discusses how the key to the United States’ economic success in the next century is to create opportunity. With an eye on the horizon and to the threats that still lie ahead, Mullen discusses America’s greatest challenges—economic growth, infrastructure, education and foreign and military policy.

Governments, businesses, global financial systems and infrastructures are increasingly vulnerable on a broad scale to a cyber attack which could essentially bring not only the U.S. but a major part of the industrialized world to parade rest.  Unfortunately most people and businesses don't feel the intensity of these threats because they seem so abstract and they don't understand the effect of a wide-scale cyber attack on their daily lives.   Admiral Mullen discusses with audiences the challenges facing leaders in all arenas to understand the cyber threat and why it cannot be delegated to some part of an organization. Leaders have to understand it because leaders make decisions about investment, policies and regulations and the major vulnerability to cyber attacks is commercially. He explains how the challenges are only going to significantly increase and why this should be one of America's top concerns.
