HELLO and THANK YOU for your kind interest to learn more about the conference on April 20th and to learn more about us (

I welcome your inquiry and every question and concern. We practice 'open source open forum' in our publishing and training events in order to enhance the 'customer experience' and ensure 'take-aways' are practical. Our events are educational 'talkshows' ...not tradeshows, by design. Have a look below at the education agenda.
Contact me for a discussion.

3 Global Forces impacting European Union
First, aging will create an economic growth gap as the working-age population declines, putting the onus for future GDP growth on productivity, which is currently waning.

Second, rapid advances in digitization and automation will disrupt the European economy, expose it to new competition, and raise difficult questions about the future of work, even as they provide the potential to boost productivity and close the growth gap created by the demographic changes.

Third, the EU faces increasing competition from emerging-economy companies and digital multinationals, rising migration pressures, and a broader backlash against globalization and global institutions as many citizens feel left behind.

... asking for your opinions

Your opinion matters.
What say you?

Global business is a 'megatrend' better enabling development of diverse people & economies worldwide resulting in... an expansion and the rise of a global middle class, an evolving pool of global talent for 'smart companies', keen awareness to develop a 'global mindset'.

Yes, imbalances have been created so let's get it right because no one should be left behind---let's build a global private/public partnership to develop + implement worker retraining specifically for needed functions and skills + 'upskilling'
+ fund compensation for the displaced.

Doing so would be good for business. What say you?
