Dear AIB members:


I am happy to announce the publication of my new book, 2030: How Today’s Biggest Trends Will Collide and Reshape the Future of Everything, by St. Martin’s Press.


I analyze the transformation of consumer and financial markets in the wake of the rise of Africa, population ageing, the emerging middle class, the new role of women in the economy, the growth of cities, and the adoption of technology, from AI and robotics to the blockchain and cryptocurrencies.


I would be happy to provide you with powerpoint presentations if needed.

“A must-read for those looking to understand the what, why, and so what of transformational global change.”
