RICHARD WORZEL BIOGRAPHY

You want someone who can not only entertain, thrill, and inspire the attendees during your event but also help them generate more money and perform well tomorrow – to deliver the steak and the sizzle. And whether it’s a keynote with actionable takeaways, a workshop to help them bond as a team, or an executive briefing to bring order to chaos,

Richard Worzel has done that for companies like 3Com and IBM. Ford Deloitte, the Global Congress on Industrial Biotechnology  And, unlike other speakers, you will not only get to see a draft of his remarks ahead of time, but you will also get the opportunity to work with Richard on the final version to ensure it strikes as close to the centre of the bulls-eye as possible.

That way, you’ll be confident that we’ll get the finest possible outcome when I appear in front of your folks. Before becoming a professional futurist and consultant, Richard Worzel worked as an institutional investor. He got the Chartered Financial Analyst qualification (which The Economist recently called the global gold standard for post-graduate degrees in finance). Because of his history, he understands that talk is cheap, but the evidence is essential.

Richard’s topic of study is the future, which means he is not a specialist on a specific subject but a generalist with a comprehensive understanding of various fields. He draws on this history to paint a big picture of what’s going on in your organization now and in the future, tying up loose ends and providing new facts and insights that make the presentation interesting and valuable to your conference attendees.

Richard Worzel has worked with senior business leaders, pharmaceutical companies, technology companies, agribusiness and farm groups, health care and medical groups, credit unions, banks, financial advisors, technology companies, life science researchers and investors, alternative fuel and energy groups, government agencies, manufacturers, and many others for over 20 years. But what matters is that he can do it for your people, creating a one-of-a-kind, upbeat, candid, and informative presentation that has been planned, produced, and fine-tuned exclusively for them.

Richard Worzel Topic Presentations

Demographics are Destiny-how Population Trends Affect the Economy

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • It’s easy to forget that people are the basis of everything relating to economic trends, including consumer demand, housing, tourism, and potentially even inflation and deflation. Or, to put it another way, without people, there is no economy. That being the case, how are national and global demographic trends shaping the destiny of tomorrow’s economy?

    • As America’s population ages, its labour force growth falls, which leads to lower, slower GDP growth.
    • An ageing population buys replacements rather than increasing demand, hence an ageing consumer force leads to lower economic growth and lower demand.
    • Ageing boomers will look to sell their family homes, but those who can afford to may wind up with two domiciles instead: one for winter down south, the other for the rest of the year up north. Or one in an urban centre, the other in a calmer, more rural setting.
    • Meanwhile, younger consumers, especially Millennials, are finally starting their long-delayed move into their household formation years. This will goose demand for housing, cars (somewhat – younger consumers are less interested in car ownership than earlier generations), baby clothes, insurance, and even the beginnings of retirement planning.
    • Globally, the developed countries will face significant financial problems because of ageing populations, established developing countries (except China, which is ageing faster than almost anyone else) are burning through into their ‘demographic dividends’, and newly developing countries, notably in Africa, with their still-growing populations, will win their place in the spotlight as quickly as they can develop stable governments and legal systems that protect property rights.
    • All told then, at every level, demographics are signalling a changing of the guard, with some groups losing influence, and others gaining them.
