Programme & speakers

In recent decades the world has been transformed by unprecedented economic and political developments.  A new world order is shaping up with the establishment of new markets and growth opportunities. The globalisation of trade and finance has driven fundamental changes across the world alongside the rapid development of some emerging economies.  Globalisation has also brought about an increasing interdependence between nations, institutions and people.  

In tandem, we are witnessing major social trends including, for example, the ageing of populations in the most developed economies. This contrasts sharply with the rapid growth of populations, urbanisation and educational investment in many developing countries.

Innovations in technology have connected people in radically new ways. We all now have access to an almost infinite volume and range of information and knowledge. At little or no cost.  The internet has killed distance!

The world is becoming ever more diverse and complex – and riskier. This makes it increasingly challenging for everyone to respond appropriately.

This presentation will explore this rapidly changing landscape beyond the horizon by identifying and highlighting the impact of some of the most significant trends and the implications for society, government and business.
