Andrew Busch’s Speech Topics

  • Future Work: Growth Opportunities

    If the world feels like it’s speeding up, that’s because it is. Technological changes via cloud computing, computer speed and algorithmic modeling are advancing more rapidly than anyone could’ve guessed five years ago. The tumult they will create for the economy and jobs is part of the chaos we can expect going forward. But what are the growth opportunities for those entering the workforce today? How will the reshaping of our economy drive change and demand for new skills? Which jobs will be phased out and which ones will survive? As an economic futurist, Andrew Busch speaks with CEOs and top managers for every business sector as he creates research on the future economy for his clients. From financial services to plastics, Andy gets the inside scoop on what the top business minds consider challenges and future growth opportunities.


    Audience takeaways:

    • What is “foundational AI” and how is it already changing the job market?
    • What jobs will likely survive and what jobs will likely fade away?
    • How will this impact the economy, and will policy changes make a difference?
    • How to prepare today for the rapid shift coming to employment?
  • 2022 US Midterm Elections: Growth Opportunities

    Midterm elections will likely bring big changes for US legislation, regulations and economy. There are razor thin Democratic majorities in both the House and the Senate. Since 1938, there have only been 2 times a sitting president added seats in a mid-term election. Gridlock is likely, but don’t be fooled by the name as there will be plenty of action in Congress. How will a split Congress impact regulation? Inflation? Fiscal spending? Trade? Supreme Court? Federal Reserve Policy? What will be the Biden legislative strategy for the remaining 2 years of his presidency? How will all this impact the 2024 US Presidential election? Most importantly, how will the elections impact your business? As an economic futurist, Andrew Busch has been in the US government when a power shift occurred and provides his insights into answering all these questions. Most importantly, he gives you an outlook for the growth opportunities coming from these changes for your industry and members.


    Audience takeaways:

    • Outlook for outcome of US House and Senate midterm elections
    • Key policy changes on legislation, trade and regulations impacting your industry
    • Growth opportunities created by the changes and key trends driving the economic future
  • The Future Economy: Growth Opportunities

    The world is going to see more economic change in the next 5 years than we have seen in the last 100 years. Just when we were getting over the worst of COVID, Russia invaded. The war in the Ukraine is a great example of the speed of change and the disruption that can happen to the global economy. As well, foundational AI, blockchain and co-bots are just a few of the extraordinary tools being leveraged right now to help businesses overcome, adapt and thrive. Are you aligning yourself for what will occur? Andy literally wrote the book on large, catastrophic events and how they impact our markets, economy and world. As a futurist and economist, Andy dives deep into exploring how innovation, policy changes and societal shifts (war) drive opportunities for clients. 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 super charged by COVID & war, then applies them to your industry via a case study to show where money is flowing. Are you thinking about how to adapt to the disruptions to run your business better or how you can grow it faster?  How are you challenging yourself with new ideas, new concepts, new technology? Can you understand the economic forces driving change to lead you in transforming your business and adapting your strategy to take control of the future? Andy says, “Let’s explore the economic future by getting you the tools you need to be successful.”


    Audience Takeaways:

    • Update on the war, supply chains and the economy
    • Key trends supercharged by the virus and war
    • Case study on your industry’s opportunities for growth
  • Climate Change: Growth Opportunities

    Environmental, Social and Governance or ESG is considered one of the hottest topics today for clients, investors and businesses. Andy explains why a Biden victory and the new EU budget has supercharged interest in ESG. He’ll provide context for any audience to understand where we’ve been, where we are and where we are going on ESG and climate change. Want to know how the recent climate events in Germany, Tennessee and California are creating momentum for faster changes? He covers that. Want to know how rising sea levels and more humidity are impacting supply chains? He covers that. Want to know about the UN climate conference in November that is making an impact now on the economy? He covers that. And just what is “greenwashing?” Or what is the current state of carbon credits? As a former regulator and CMIO of the CFTC, Andy Busch explains how ESG came about, what the risks are and how ESG trends will impact your industry. Most importantly, what are the opportunities from these changes? After working for the agency that approved bitcoin, Andy brings a unique perspective to this new and rapidly expanding ESG world.


    Audience takeaways:

    • What is ESG and its history
    • What are key risks for ESG investors and regulatory risk for business
    • Why Millennials and the UN climate conference will drive change
