Topic Presentations

Staying on top of a rapidly shifting world means gathering pertinent information, deciding which is critical, which to ignore, which is true, and which is nonsense. This cutting-edge speech from a global expert with hands-on experience will make sense of it all by linking demographics, economics and risk assessment to create a whole new picture of potential and possibilities.

This speech is for any organization either doing business or considering expanding into Africa. Africa is rich in natural resources and currently experiencing the fastest growth of any continent. Yet is ignored by most and feared by many. Don’t miss the enormous opportunities for early entry in order to ride the growth curve to market dominance and maturity. Learn the risks and rewards of doing business in Africa and protect your team, your assets and your reputation. Learn about the economic systems as well as the demographics of different African countries. Get the tools you need to minimize risk and maximize gain and bring a knowledge transfer and new capacity to your company.

We’ve come a long way in the last 150 years – from the Wild West and Victorian England to the transparent and politically correct world of 2019. Successful businesses are now required to review their expectations of transparency in a world of creative and opaque market practices. This hidden risk will play a major role in the management and success of any organization, economy or nation. Quality risk assessment and management is profitable and provides huge overlooked opportunities for an organization with vision.

  • Avoid being drawn into apparent opportunities fraught with hidden risk

  • Gain a profound understanding of this new world and your organization’s growth possibilities

  • Steer away from potential disaster and toward a dramatic spike in profits

  • Look ahead to find golden opportunities that are not yet visible to others
