Since the Sons of Liberty threw casks of tea into the Boston Harbor, taxation has been a hot topic for Americans. President Obama has promised to pursue a very specific approach regarding tax policies based on advice from a litany of renowned experts with substantial economic experience. So, what will the president’s plan mean for you, your organization and the country? Martin Feldstein, who has been called one of the ten best economists in the world and stands as an economic research pioneer. In this compelling presentation, he reviews:

  • What initiatives are likely to produce jobs, increase wages and investment in business
  • How tax policy may impact healthcare
  • Fact versus fiction in the tax debate

Savvy economists saw it coming. The bubble in the housing prices, high loan to value ratio for millions of homeowners and the manner in which mortgages were securitized was not a formula for long-term economic success. The result was household wealth degradation and destruction of capital financial institutions that hold mortgages and mortgage-backed securities. While the country hopes that recent financial rescue plans will bring back the confidence needed to revive the financial system, has the root of the problem been addressed and where do we go from here? In this revealing presentation customized for your organization from one of the world’s leading economists, Martin Feldstein, the George F. Baker Professor of Economics at Harvard University, shares:

  • Insights into the current, and complex, economic dynamics
  • What results we can expect from recent congressional and federal government initiatives
  • What initiatives will get the economy back on track

No country—since the rise of the United States—has ever challenged the rest of the world on so many fronts as the rise of China does today. Ted Fishman explores the dynamic behind China’s rise and how the vast changes in that country change life for the rest of us as workers, managers, consumers, citizens and even as parents. China has embarked on the most ambition infrastructure building effort in the world. It is also vastly expanding it education system so help push the nation and its people to the top of world economy. As it advances and China’s market power grows, the changes many long-standing rules and practices in global business, from the roles of Central Banks and currency regimes, to shape of mass and custom production to the rules—and lack of rules—for intellectual property protection. The stakes are enormously high for people everywhere, and nothing about China’s continual rise is assured. Fishman explores the fundamental drivers of China’s push and what the rest of the world must do to insure that China’s drive creates prosperity at home, in the United States or wherever home may be.

The Shock of Gray is a new reality that is essential for nearly all audiences to understand. Ted Fishman delivers a powerful lesson in how the unprecedented aging of the world’s population two lies at the heart of nearly every major social and economic trend today, driving globalization and propelling the movement of money, goods and people. Understanding this immense, unprecedented change is essential to the stewardship of companies, organizations and communities that aim to endure and thrive. Fishman has traveled our grayer future and found what's bright, what's stormy, and he is creating a map we all will need to navigate a great change.

Florida’s new book (Harper Collins and Random House 2010), The Great Reset will provide a better map for understanding and navigating through and beyond today's economic crisis. Florida draws in years of research, case studies and data to show that we are not just facing a shift in our banking and business structures, but a long-term fundamental reset of our entire way of life. Positioning business, regions and the overall economy to grow stronger in the coming decades will require a solid understanding of the Reset. This timely and important speech helps organizations, policy and decision makers to construct a new, more productive way of life for a new era built on a more authentic and sustainable prosperity.

This speech focuses on city, regional and global economic growth. It gives community leaders the tools they need to generate greater economic prosperity in their region. No longer are cities competing with neighboring cities, rather mega regions are competing globally.

This thought-provoking speech with your city’s crucial leadership will give you the necessary framework to make your community more competitive and vibrant. Richard Florida will share with your audience the most current regional economic and demographic data and knowledge of cutting-edge community-building practices.

The requirements of the Creative Economy, changing expectations of workers, and demographic shifts have caused a serious shortage in workers resulting in the “Talent Wars”. The Talent Management Speech was developed and led by Florida who has been dubbed the “world’s leading cartographer of talent” by Fast Company. In this speech, Florida distills his framework for how to attract and retain talent and explains his analysis of which locations offer the best talent pools for an innovative and creative workforce. This speech is aimed at corporate leaders, human resources directors, and those responsible for attracting and retaining the ‘best and the brightest’ to their organization.

The World is Spiky, not flat, as Creative Talent increasingly clusters in certain places leaving other locations depleted. Moreover, today’s talent cannot be won over through basic methods such as increased compensation. Based on years of surveying and interviewing members of the Creative Class and exhaustive quantitative and locational analysis, this speech will help you answer the question: Where is the talent and how can my organization attract and retain the creative and highly valuable workforce required for success?

In The Creative Management Speech, Florida leads teams of executives and managers on how to manage creativity culled through more than two decades of research on leading edge companies and his breakthrough Harvard Business Review article with SAS CEO and founder, Jim Goodnight. This speech ignites new thinking and strategic initiatives on how to manage, motivate and inspire creative people.

Most corporate diversity efforts are compliance driven, adding little to the bottom line. Drawing up his research and analysis in his best-selling book, Rise of the Creative Class and other sources, Florida’s Managing Diversity speech provides a framework for making diversity efforts value adding.

From BMW and Apple to Equity Office Properties – firms across industries have identified the Creative Class as a core market for their products and services. Who is the Creative Class and why do they matter? The Creative Class, is 40 million strong, making up 30 percent of the U.S. workforce, with 50% of wages earned and controlling nearly 70% of discretionary spending in the US. That is over $500 billion in purchasing power annually! This consumer group, consisting of scientists, engineers, managers, innovators and people in research and development, as well as artists, writers and musicians are the most educated and demanding consumers in the marketplace. Florida has years of data on who they are, where they are, what they read, what they purchase and the ethos that drives their decisions.
