This Session is a; Keynote

The world will see more economic change in the next five years than in the last 100 years. Just as the US was getting over the worst of COVID, Russia invaded, and China shut down ports due to COVID. War in Ukraine, inflation soaring, interest rates spiking, exponential advances in artificial intelligence, and supply chain crashing are all examples of the speed of change. But how did we get here? More importantly, where do we go from here?

As a futurist and economist, Andy explores how innovation, policy changes, and societal shifts (war) drive client opportunities. He provides context by doing a “where we’ve been, where we are, and where we’re going” for the economy. He takes the trends supercharged by COVID & war, then applies them to your industry via a case study to show where money flows and opportunities grow.
