Julius Genachowski (Exclusively WSB)

Describing the driving objective of his work with the FCC as “moving private capital from the sidelines to the streets,” former FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski knows all too well the challenge and importance of leveraging innovation to keep America in the race to stay competitive on the global stage. From developments in the mobile and app economy to pushing broadband access and increasing wireless, Genachowski’s leadership has helped the United States advance in the disruptive technological innovations that are unleashing opportunities both at home and abroad. As network, device and application development are at an all-time high, the implications for job creation and investments make technology the core of our future economy with game-changing influence on areas like health care, education and cyber security, as well as the U.S. and global economy overall. With a vibrant and youthful energy fueled by a passionate devotion to progress, Genachowski shares with audiences a behind-the-scenes look at the rapidly evolving world of technology and the momentous advances that are occurring today. Audiences will gain from Genachowski:

  • What is required of the U.S. to maintain a competitive edge in the global arena

Rudy Giuliani (Exclusively WSB)

Recent geopolitical events are quickly becoming serious areas of concern to corporations as the risks to global security increase with potential repercussions in the critical areas of information sharing, cyber security and crisis management. Rudy Giuliani invokes his experience in the 9-11 attacks’ aftermath to make a compelling case regarding the importance of creating a national “determination and will to continue the war on terrorism.” A leader in strategic consulting, emergency preparedness and fiscal responsibility, Giuliani cites specific and relevant examples from his work as a partner in the international law firm Bracewell & Giuliani and leaves audiences with a stark reminder of how doing business in an ever-shrinking world has new challenges that can and must be surmounted.

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.

Austan Goolsbee (Exclusively WSB)

Why does the global economic recovery seem to be taking one step forward and a half step back and not coming back more quickly? Austan Goolsbee, former Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers of the United States draws on his recent policy experience to examine the problems and the opportunities that lie ahead for the U.S. economy, global growth and the ways the dysfunction of policy makers has complicated the road back.  Providing a candid and holistic analysis, Goolsbee notes the factors likely to determine the strength and duration of the recovery, and how those key indicators at home—exports, innovation, housing, business capital spending, energy prices and the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy— and abroad—the Eurozone debt crisis, currency wars and uncertainty in emerging markets—will impact growth and the prospects for sustained recovery.

Austan Goolsbee (Exclusively WSB)

Austan Goolsbee analyzes the key economic challenges facing the U.S. and the importance of innovative solutions that will keep businesses competitive. As the nation looks to increase growth on the long term, continuing uncertainty over economic policy remains a critical issue at the forefront of corporate executives’ minds. Addressing the fiscal challenges that lie ahead for America, he explores how focusing on spurring investment and innovation and improving U.S. exports will have long-term positive impact—while a failure to act risks a lasting period of painful economic stagnation. Commenting on key challenges including attracting top talent, protecting innovation in a global marketplace, as well as macroeconomic factors like lingering high unemployment, the burdens of regulation and the increasing federal deficit, he analyzes the nation's economic health and disseminates complex economic policy with his insightful humor. Austan Goolsbee will help you decide how the policy decisions in Washington influence the middle-class, the competitiveness of various industries and how it will impact you and your company.

Alan Greenspan (Exclusively WSB)

In an intimate and thoughtful conversation, Alan Greenspan, former chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, offers candid, in-depth and thorough responses to audience's questions about the world economy.
