Peter Zeihan, "The Scramble for Power"
Geopolitical expert Peter Zeihan explains the massive global power shifts underway—and how to adapt
Wednesday, June 10
Most countries and companies are not prepared for the world Peter Zeihan says we’re already living in. As a new age of American isolationism dawns, the results will have massive—and surprising—implications for global power structures and economies. And, he projects, it will usher in the greatest expansion in American power and security in the history of the Republic. Combining expertise in demography, economics, energy, politics, technology and security, Zeihan helps clients—corporations, policy makers, government agencies—make sense of a complicated world. In this fascinating and eye-opening keynote address, he’ll help you understand why our world is changing so fast, who will emerge as winners and losers, and how you can position your company now to get ahead of it all.
The Keynote Speaker for Thursday, June 11 will be announced in early March 2020.
