Future Health Care - book extract: MedTech, Biotech, NanoTech, Infotech- impact on health trends, longevity forecasts, hospitals, future home care and the future of the pharma industry in developed nations, emerging markets - health care keynote speaker

Future Health Care Speaker, Future Pharma Keynotes

Future of Health - extract from The Future of Almost Everything book, by Futurist keynote speaker and physician, Dr Patrick Dixon, advisor to over 400 of the world's largest corporations, including many multinational pharma and health care companies.

We have seen how the future of every nation is linked to demographics, migrations and cities. But these things are also linked to the future health: not only how many people are born, but how fit they are and how long they live. And in health care, most of humankind will see an astonishing revolution over the next 30-50 years. The fact is that 65% of all health care spending in developed nations is on those over the age of 65, most of whom have several chronic health conditions, almost all related to the ageing process. Therefore it could be said that every pharma company and every hospital exists primarily to serve the health care needs of older people, in those parts of the world.

The greatest health challenges in the next two decades are almost all related to ageing, as many emerging nations also become older...

The TRUTH about the Global Economy, Wholesale Finance, Future Interest Rates, Real Estate Development and the Future of Banking - Keynote Speaker

Future Trends, Economy, Markets, Keynote Speaker

We may debate the economics of the world over the last decade, which have been largely driven by growth in emerging markets (where 85% of humanity live), but the fact is that many corporations now have huge cash mountains and no idea what to do with it. Trillions of dollars of cash is sitting in bank accounts of large companies doing nothing at all - more than $2.3 trillion in large Japanese companies alone. $12 trillion was made available a few years ago by Central Banks to the largest banks in their own nations. $3.7 trillion was by the US Federal Reserve alone. In addition $10 trillion of government bonds were issued with negative rates of interest (see below). Yet despite all this, many banks have refused to take cash offered by governments to help stimulate their economies, even when they are effectively fined by Central Banks for doing so...

Shocking facts about your future - how 11 billion people will eat, sleep and breathe in our future world where 1% owns 65% of the wealth, 85% live in emerging markets, with new people movements and revolutionary forces

Future of Emerging Markets, China, India - Speaker

Unsustainable population growth

One billion children will become consumers in the next 15 years – the biggest jump in human history.

Today in Africa 350 million children see glimpses of your lifestyle and compare this to their own, surviving on less than $3 a day. Most of them will spend their entire adult lives living in cities, chasing dreams of wealth.

By 2025, most people on the planet will be in Asia.

85% of the world’s population will be living in emerging markets or today’s developing countries by then, mostly in cities.

Only 1 in 7 will be in today’s developed nations, driving less than 10% of the world’s economic growth.

Future of China - 300 year trend that will shake the entire world. Truth about so-called "emerging markets" and future risks for China - keynote

Future of Emerging Markets, China, India - Speaker

China is a wealthy ‘nation of nations’ with a huge middle class, gigantic manufacturing capacity, its own dotcom boom, the world’s largest high-speed rail network, and one of the best educated workforces in the world. China is evolving rapidly and for many globalised corporations manufacturing in China is becoming a rather old-fashioned idea, because of rising costs.

China is now the world’s largest economy according to the World Bank, on the measure of purchasing power parity (PPP), which looks at what the local currency will actually buy, after adjusting for international exchange rates.  China’s economy will be three times the size of India’s in 2025, as it is today, but we can expect that India will close that gap in the longer term.

On an absolute dollar basis, China will be the world’s largest economy by 2024, propelled by a threefold rise in consumer spending each year from $3.5 trillion in 2014 to $10.5 trillion by 2024. This will all be part of a transition from an export-led, manufacturing economy to a more balanced economy serving Chinese consumers.

Future of Insurance Industry - and re-insurance risks - summary of recent insurance keynote

Future of Insurance Industry / Risk - Keynotes

* Patrick Dixon has advised many of the world's largest insurance companies on global trends, opportunities, customer behaviour, fund management strategies and risk management.

Insurance is as fundamental to a stable and prosperous society as banking, hospitals and schools. Yet more than 3 billion people have never heard of insurance, do not know how it works, and have no idea how to get hold of it.  Most insurance today is sold to a mere 1% of the global population who own 50% of all the wealth.

Expect rapid growth, therefore, of basic insurance in emerging markets where 85% of humanity lives, targeted mainly at the emerging middle class. Health insurance will lead the way, after insurance types that people are forced by law to buy, such as motor insurance. Expect a boost in many nations in sales of life or health products from tax rebates, especially where they are structured to contain an element of saving. Many who are unbanked today will gain their first insurance cover using a smartphone, or through micro-loans associations.  Extract from The Future of Almost Everything....

Truth about Blockchain and BitCoins – impact of Blockchain on your industry, business and wider world. BitCoin and other cryptocurrencies - keynote comment

Technology Speaker, AI, Big Data, Robotics, Cyber

I have advised hundreds of the world’s largest corporations on digital trends, and one of the biggest that CEOs and boards are now talking about is Blockchain. What is Blockchain and what does it mean for us?  Could Blockchain wipe out our business, or will Blockchain help us grow? Here is a comment after my recent keynote for the global team of Generali Insurance, on Blockchain.

Blockchain means that anyone in the world with online access can prove a particular document exists, when it was sent, who it was sent to and so on.  We can also prove that an event has taken place, in a way which is fully transparent to everyone who needs to know this around the world. The implications of this are going to be huge.  And it will be many years before we work it all out.

Truth about Robots - will robots destroy millions of jobs? What future for human beings at work? Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Keynote Speaker

Technology Speaker, AI, Big Data, Robotics, Cyber

Yesterday I shared a platform with a ROBOT to give a keynote (for EY / Ernst & Young) - as I do regularly....but I'm at no risk whatsoever of losing my job to the automaton.

I have worked with over 400 of the world's largest companies over the last few years, as a Futurist advisor / keynote speaker - and huge numbers of them are worried about robotics / AI / Artificial Intelligence. What does it mean for our business? Are we investing enough in Big Data analytics? How will competitors attack our markets using robotics and next-generation automation. How will Artificial Intelligence control our future?

At the same time, in the media everyday we see sensational headlines such as "Hundreds of millions of jobs will be lost to robots", suggesting that humankind will never be able to find enough work for tomorrow's people, because so many jobs will be done by machines....

How hotels and transport industry will be impacted by AirBnB - travel industry keynote speaker

Future of Travel Keynotes, Transport, Tourism

Over 20 years ago I correctly predicted the gigantic impact of online marketing and sales on the travel industry - whether airlines, hotels, package holidays, business travel and so on.

And so it has turned out.  So how will the next stage in the online revolution impact hotels and the entire hospitality sector?

I recently gave a keynote on these issues to 800 CEOs of many of the world's largest and best known hotels, at a Starwoods hotel group global summit.

A key message was that small things will continue to create magic for customers, in the largest hotels, often at very low cost....

Future of Telcos, e-Wallets, payments and FinTech innovation. How Telcos will become Banks and why old Telco business models are broken - Telco Keynote

Future of Telcos Keynotes, Smartphones,Omnichannel

Video of Telco keynote at Google premier global event - Digital Payments and Telcos

I often give keynotes at Telco conferences on why Telco old business models are broken: mobile banking and digital payments.  Why so many Telcos are entering the world of banks with e-Wallets and future of TelcoBanks. I have worked with many of the world's largest telcos and banks - so what of their future?

In theory, Telcos should be at the very heart of the digital revolution:  after all, they provide all the bandwidth we use to access the web - whether on smartphones or by traditional broadband at home or at work.  They also provide the handsets themselves.  And they have the ability to track people to within one or two metres, all the time, using signals from the mobile devices they have in their pockets. In addition, their networks handle all our online payments, our diary, our email and all our web searches.  Yes in many cases most of that data is encrypted, but you would be shocked to see the full extent of data that Telcos are usually able to pick up - the same is true of owners of websites you visit.

Yet the truth is that very few Telcos are really taking advantage of their potential - in particular, the data they have about your location.

How to spot Fake Forecasts, Bad Analysts and False Futurists - secret of more accurate forecasting and of all great Futurist speakers. Shocking truth about easily avoidable Futurist 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 hundreds of the world's largest corporations on the impact of key industry megatrends, for more than 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. Judge me on my own record - content on this website goes back to 1996.


Here's what I wrote a while back for Wired Magazine (adapted)...

The truth about future health: why many health costs will fall dramatically, yet care budgets will soar. Impact on society, budgets, pharma, biotech, medtech, hospitals and home care - keynote speaker on health trends

Future Health Care Speaker, Future Pharma Keynotes

Expect more health care innovation from 2045 - 2050 than in all human history

As a physician and a Futurist, I work with many of of the world's largest Pharma and MedTech companies, helping them develop next-generation treatments to improve human health and wellbeing.

Health care knowledge is doubling every 24 months, so we will know 32,000 times in 2048 than today more about how the human body works, why disease happens, how to detect early disease, how to treat illness effectively, and how to promote health. The growth of medical knowledge shows no signs of slowing down, indeed it is accelerating.

Take for example the Human Genome Project. Back in 2001 it cost around $800m to decode or sequence most of the genetic code of just one human being. By 2006, the cost per genome sequence had already fallen to around $300,000.

Today, the same can be achieved for around $1000, using Illumina’s highest-end products, including reagents and an appropriate contribution to the capital cost of its machines. For example, the NovaSeq 6000 machine costs around $1m to buy. So how will this technology and 100,000 other innovations change future health care??

Future Trends - impact on Portugal and rest of world. Managing risk and uncertainty, robotics and AI, and future ethics. Summary of keynote.

Future Trends, Economy, Markets, Keynote Speaker

Interview for AESE Business School in Lisbon - about to give a keynote on global trends - 19th October 2017.  Here are major issues that are impacting very large numbers of companies across the world.  I usually group them as six factors that spell the word FUTURE, each of which forms one face of a cube.  The energy which spins the cube is EMOTION – reactions to events or trends are usually more important than events themselves.

“The world can change faster than you can hold a board meeting”, you said in a presentation. Among the hundreds of possibilities of change and innovation, what are the key trends do you foresee as having the most impact in business and personal life in this new World 4.0?"

The truth about Northern Ireland’s borders after Brexit – passports and customs - and how demographic shifts will hugely alter political balance. Comment after keynote.

Future Trends, Economy, Markets, Keynote Speaker

29th September 2017

A lot of nonsense is talked about Brexit.  Here is the truth.

Sorting out all Brexit issues affecting the borders of Northern Ireland could take many years to fully resolve.  At the same time, the EU has made it clear that until a practical solution is agreed, even if such a solution is fine-tuned in future, discussions on a trade deal post-Brexit, will be on permanent hold.

There is a small chance that the entire Brexit process will be halted by a further vote in the UK, which could form part of an election manifesto commitment at the next election.  However this is becoming less likely at the moment, because opinion polls across the UK as a whole are more in favour of Brexit than when the original vote to leave took place.  (At the same time, paradoxically, opinion polls in other EU nations are becoming more positive about being part of the EU.)

For the purposes of this article, let us assume therefore that Brexit happens.

The EU has made absolutely 100% clear that they will not under any circumstances tolerate a breach anywhere in the EU wall controlling goods, services and movements of people across the border into the EU.  That is, unless
