Identifying immigrant faultlines: how and why the global movement of people will be a source of prosperity and tension in the 2020s

Aimed at government officials, defence groups, immigration departments, humanitarian groups and interested parties.  Drawing on UN datasets which countries are likely to be a source of immigrants and refugees and where are the faultlines between rich and poor.  In this is powerful sobering, presentation a compelling argument is put for global cooperation to deliver a safer and a more equitable society.  Attendees come away with a better understanding of the forces driving refugees and of the demand for labor.

Goldmines and minefields:  how and where demographic forces are creating global hotspots in consumer spending

Aimed at multinational businesses with global interests; also of interest to trade organisations and government departments.  It’s all about the rise and fall of demographic cohorts. Of the 200 countries on earth which are likely to experience most growth in the household-formation cohort in the 2020s?  And which countries might be expected to show the weakest growth in consumer spending?  Powerful yet logical stuff, brilliantly assembled and presented. 

Delivered by Bernard or by Simon.  40 minutes.  Includes 20-slide deck.


Identifying global hotspots for infrastructure: how taxation and cohorts combine to create the of pool of funds necessary to drive nation-building projects

Aimed at governments, private equity groups, government departments, global construction businesses.  Sure governments can borrow to fund big-picture pieces of infrastructure but at some point this capacity is ties to the wealth generating and taxation-paying capacity of the local population.  More workers means more spending and taxation which means more nation-building.  Simple.    

Delivered by Bernard or by Simon.  40 minutes.  Includes 20-slide deck.


Navigating the future of work: skills on the rise and jobs in decline tell the story of access to prosperity

Aimed at education groups, government departments, corporates, professional organisations, technology groups. In this session we take data from the US, from Australia, from the UK and show which jobs and which sectors are rising and which are falling.  It’s not so much about the job to be in but rather the skills you will need to survive and thrive in the 21st century.  Scary topic made digestible and engaging.
