Strategy & Geopolitics: Understanding Global Complexity in a Turbulent World
From a geo-political viewpoint, we are living in a confusing and contradictory time. The world is largely at peace, humanity is enjoying unprecedented prosperity, and globalization has brought the world closer together than at perhaps any moment in its history.
Strategy & Geopolitics is conceived as an introduction to the topic and is designed to:
- Help senior executives wrap their heads around the current situation.
- Provide a framework for geopolitical analysis specifically designed for business leaders and members of Boards.
- Give each program participant some insights into the particular issues that may affect their businesses in the short and medium term.
- Introduction: Geopolitics for Business Leaders.
- Economic vulnerabilities in the age of Trump and Xi.
- Europe stumbles along.
- North and South America in an awkward embrace.
- China’s re-mergence as a global power.
- Africa rising: Will it be the next China?
- The Middle East on the brink of war and peace at the same time.
- Building resilience business in a turbulent world.
The highly concentrated, two-day format was chosen to allow such people to carve out sufficient time to gain an understanding of the issues at a fairly high, conceptual level, while at the same time allowing for deep discussion of the implications for their particular business interests.
The course may also be of limited interest to diplomats, security analysts and specialized journalists who routinely deal with the issues raised in the program but do so from a political and social, rather than a business perspective.
