General Petraeus invites audiences to participate in a moderated question and answer session where he addresses the significant global challenges facing countries and organizations today, including ongoing international security issues, macroeconomic trends, energy policy and the tasks of strategic leadership in the 21st century.

The past couple of years have witnessed an economic meltdown of historic proportions, including precipitous 1000-point market drops, sovereign debt defaults and political unrest.  In these circumstances, even the best of businesses find it difficult to understand what’s ahead, how to survive it and avoiding becoming someone else’s cautionary tale.  Former SEC Chairman Pitt provides his unique insights on where the most important economic factors for your business are headed, and how to handle the landmines strewn in the path of the economic rollercoaster.

Bad things do happen to good companies, caused by external or internal factors.  Former SEC Chairman Pitt, who led the agency’s successful response to a series of crises, starting with the 9/11 terrorist attacks that shut down U.S. capital markets, offers tailored suggestions on how your company can anticipate, and either prevent or ameliorate, its next crisis.

Following a wrenching financial crisis and severe recession, recovery of the US economy has been disappointing from many perspectives. Whether policy choices and the reforms adopted during this time were wise and saved the economy from a worse fate or were ineffective, burdensome and counter-productive, is an issue that remains hotly debated. In this refreshing presentation, outspoken macroeconomic expert and former president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, Charles Plosser, provides global context and keenly looks to the future as he examines both long term growth prospects and policy challenges that face the nation. Plosser thoughtfully offers your audience a spirited and stimulating analysis of the complex and hot-button issues most impacting the future of their industry and organization today.

The Federal Reserve faces a great deal of scrutiny as a result of the financial crisis and a number of the actions it undertook to address the challenges facing the financial system and the economy more broadly. Reform of the nation’s central bank is high on the agenda of many from both political parties. As president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia from 2006 to 2015, and a student of monetary economics and policy for nearly four decades, Charles Plosser has been both a proponent and unequivocal critic of the Federal Reserve and its policies over the years. Offering provocative insight to the various strengths and weaknesses of a uniquely decentralized central bank, Plosser surveys the greater global economic landscape and candidly shares with the audience his own views on the direction reforms might take to strengthen effectiveness and accountability in this riveting presentation.
