Türkiye milletin geleceği ve Sağlık: Future of Turkey - economy and health care - TV / press Turkish language interview

Future Health, Pharmaceutical Industry Keynotes

-Savaşlar ve şiddeti bir tarafa bırakırsak, insanoğlu daha uzun yaşamın peşinde. Siz de bazı hayvanları örnek göstererek ‘Niye onlar daha uzun yaşıyor?’’ diye soruyorsunuz. İnanıyor musunuz daha uzun yaşayacağımıza? İnanmıyorum, eminim. Aynı yerden, aynı şekilde beslenen bir balina 50 yıl yaşarken diğeri 250 yıl yaşıyorsa, genlerine bakacaksınız. “Gen taraması metodu hem hastalıkları tedavi edecek, hem de yaşlanmayı öteleyecek. Bakın dünya nüfusunu % 85’i önümüzdeki 10 sene içinde yeni gelişen ülkelerde yaşıyor olacaklar. 2030 yılına kadar Çin’deki şehirlere 300 milyon göç, Afrika’daki şehirlere 475 milyon göç gerçekleşecek. Maalesef Avrupa’daki genç nüfus azalıyor. Her 4 çiftten sadece 1’i çocuk sahibi. 2026 yılında İtalya’da 90 yaş ve üstü insan sayısı 1 milyona ulaşacak. Eczane harcamalarının yüzde 65’i, 65 yaş ve üzeri kişilere ait. Dünyada insanların % 80’i sağlık harcamalarına ihtiyaç duyuyor. % 88’inin hepsi reçeteli ve %70’inin doktor muayenesine ihtiyacı var. Bunların hepsinin sebebi de; insanların yaşlanması.

For over two decades, many people have been trying to develop a digital alternative to physical bank notes – to pay for things online in a fast, easy, secure and totally anonymous, private way. Are BitCoins the answer?

Life after Brexit: why I was right about immediate impact of the Brexit vote and what next. Why Brexit impact on trade, services, visas, banks and retail sales will be less than many fear

Future Trends, Economy, Markets, Keynote Speaker

Why I was right about immediate impact of the Brexit vote– and what next. We continue to hear toxic nonsense about life after Brexit.  Here is the truth: As I predicted, the impact of Brexit has been slight so far – despite some market turbulence to start with. Most analysts have had to eat their words, together with many political leaders, the IMF and a host of global CEOs – after being proven so spectacularly wrong. Despite constant warnings before and after the vote of instant economic meltdown, chaos, immediate recession, national and EU crisis, we have seen the exact opposite.

Truth about Brexit: what next in the UK v EU divorce, short term and long term. Impact on your personal life, house prices, brexit business strategy, community, EU and wider world. Cut through toxic nonsense. Brexit keynote speaker

Future Trends, Economy, Markets, Keynote Speaker

We are in completely uncharted waters in troubled times globally and across the EU.  Over 50,000 reads in hours following Brexit with frequent updates of this page. The decisive vote to divorce the UK from the EU will influence the future of an entire generation of business people. There is no official mechanism for leaving the EU: it has never been done before and there are no guidelines or procedures defined in law - in either the UK or in Brussels. (Comment by Patrick Dixon, Brexit keynote speaker - Brexit strategy advisor).

Brexit will have a profound impact on the future direction of the EU and is likely to trigger multiple, complex global events.  Just the fact that such a Brexit vote took place was already having an impact elsewhere across the EU before voting began.  For example, on 26th February 2016, an opinion poll in Denmark showed that most Danes want to have a vote of their own.  

And there is a significant risk of contagion - spread of uncertainty and fear, into chaos, into instabilities in currencies and economies, radical shifts in business strategies...  In a globalised world, such things can spread at the speed of light.

The longer term future of the EU and the future of the UK will both be driven by a single word, more powerful than economics, or innovation, and that word is of course  “emotion”, linked to the most important single human force in the world today which is TRIBALISM.

How to feed 11 billion people - future of the food industry and why there should be plenty of food in the world for everyone

Future of Retail, Food, Drink, Beverages: Keynote

Today, we grow enough food to feed 9 billion people, and in future we should easily be able to feed 11 billion. We waste well over 40 per cent of the food we grow, worth USD3 trillion – in fields, storehouses, factories, warehouses, shops and rubbish bins.

We will see more genetically modified crops in many regions, with crops resistant to disease, drought, and able to grow in salty soil. Genetically modified animals will also be widely consumed in over 30 per cent of the world by 2040.

Expect a rise in the proportion of global grain production used to feed animals to more than 45 per cent beyond 2025. Already more than 70 per cent of grain produced by wealthy nations is fed to livestock. There are absolute limits on the availability of suitable land. Therefore, the price of farmland is likely to rise in many nations over the next 20 years.

My latest WIRED MAGAZINE feature: How to Predict the Future - the secret to more accurate forecasting and the shocking truth about easily avoidable errors

Future Trends, Economy, Markets, Keynote Speaker

It is often said that no one can predict the future, but the truth is that forecasting is far easier than you may think, because many things change more slowly than media hype suggests.  I know this from advising corporations on the impact of key megatrends, over the last 20 years, and from writing many books about the future since 1987.  I’m not talking about share prices, commodity prices or currency rates.  Anything to do with markets is as difficult to predict two months ahead as the British weather. Every now and again in history there is a genuine step-change, for example the collapse of communism, or a global war, or the creation of the web, but such things are rare.  That’s why most board room debates about the future are not usually about direction of a trend, which tends to be fairly obvious, but about timing or speed of that trend.
