10 Truths about Brexit - cut through the media nonsense and political posturing. Why longer term impact will be less than many think. How border issues between UK and Ireland will be resolved - in event of a No Deal Brexit. ARTICLE

Manufacturing, Logistics, Supply Chain Keynotes

Many of my previous predictions have turned out to be correct as of September 2018: for example no immediate economic meltdown, fall in currency leads to rise in exports and so on.  

Here is a common sense view of what is likely to happen in the event that the EU and UK fail to achieve an agreement before the UK leaves the EU.  

1. The pound will fall further against the Euro

This will make all exports of goods and services even more affordable for other nations to buy, and will make imports even more expensive.  If the pound falls a further 10% post Brexit, then the total fall since the vote to leave will be 25%.

2. EU import taxes will be almost irrelevant to UK exports

Let us take an average tax of 5% on any UK goods imported into the EU from the UK, and the other way round.  How much impact would that actually have when you take the new exchange rate into account?

British goods will be net 20% cheaper for French or German people to buy than before.  That's huge by any measure.

French and German goods will be net 30% more expensive for British people to buy.  Even more significant.

Net impact: far greater on companies exporting to the UK.  In any case, the rest of the world takes more UK goods than the EU, and the EU is rapidly falling as an export destination.

Future of Private Banking is Philanthropy. Reasons for boom in Philanthropic advisory services for wealthy clients. Impact on wealth advisors, Family Offices andFund Management

50% of global wealth is owned by 1% and within 30 years that is likely to rise to 65% or more.  The number of dollar billionaires is growing rapidly every year.  The richest 80 people on earth own as much wealth as the poorest 3.4 billion people. Over 1,600 billionaires and their families own between them $6.4 trillion – which is more than the combined income of the poorest 120 countries in the world. And in the layer below that are a further 250,000 Ultra-High Net Worth individuals (UNHWs). So what is going to happen to all this wealth?  The answer is that a huge proportion will be given away.  Why?

I have been advising many of the largest Private Banks in the world and large Investment Funds for over 20 years.  I have also worked with many of the world’s wealthiest entrepreneurs and Family Offices. For 20 years now I have been saying that Philanthropic advisory services will be at the heart of Private Banking and wealth management, for the next few decades. The reasons are simple....

Why college education is in such a mess - reasons why so many students are fed up. How to transform university learning at almost zero cost. Truth about Future Impact of IT on College Education. Digital learning. Futurist keynote speaker VIDEO and POST

Future of Education, School, Universities, Keynote

Despite 20 years of digital hype in education, the shocking truth is that classroom experience for most College students has changed relatively little, compared to - say - the explosive growth of smartphone use, social media, e-commerce and video streaming for entertainment. So what of the future? 60% of 18-34 years olds across America no longer think that 4 year courses are worth the money. US Higher Education institutions have seen 6 straight years of falling enrolment. The key is understanding how to create real "magic" for students, rather than just delivering yet another digital learning platform, or IT solution or administrative tool. The really great news is that the greatest educational IT "magic" can be delivered at almost zero cost, at astonishing speed, compared to most College IT projects. You can have the smartest Campus in the world, with multiple interactive learning tools, virtual classrooms, collaborative platforms, AI-enhanced automated coaching, and so on, yet miss the greatest lessons of all...
