Global Conference 2015

The world is changing fast. But in what direction? There are powerful trends we know about, but what are the realities we can't yet imagine? Technology is disrupting industries and connecting everyone on the planet. Emerging markets are flexing their economic muscle. Geopolitical struggles are posing new risks for governments and companies. How are these factors shaping the world we'll live in a decade hence? Don't make assumptions about the future until you've heard from our panel of experts, who have unique perspectives on where the world is headed. What kind of work will become obsolete, and what types of jobs will be created? How much progress can we make against disease, poverty and climate change, and how will that figure into the economic equation? How do leaders prepare for the future?
