Brexit keynote speaker. Huge Brexit shock to global economy? Truth about Brexit impact on UK, future of Europe, Eurozone, exchange rates, migration, business and wider world

Future Trends, Economy, Markets, Keynote Speaker

Leaders of G20 Nations have declared that Brexit would be a shock to the global economy: hype or fiction? Whatever the result of the British EU referendum on 23rd June 2016, the UK vote will be fiercely contested, and will have a profound impact on the future direction of the EU.  Just the fact that such a Brexit vote is taking place is already triggering events elsewhere.  For example, on 26th February, an opinion poll in Denmark showed that most Danes now want to have a vote of their own. The truth is that a lot of nonsense is being paraded as fact in the heated Brexit referendum campaign. Here is a guide to your Brexit-related future by Brexit Keynote Speaker Patrick Dixon

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.

Future of global faith, mission and organised religion: why personal spirituality and hunger for purpose will continue to shape and influence our world, and why over half of humankind will identify themselves as Christian or Muslim

Spirituality, World Religion, Christianity, Church

Video of keynote on global trends to over 1450 church leaders from 30 nations, part of the Elim church network.

Around 85% of people in the world today say that they recognise a spiritual dimension to life, which reflects an ancient pattern in place since the beginning of human history. While strident voices of humanistic atheism are likely to grow louder in some developed nations, they will almost certainly be drowned out globally over the next 50 years by the vast majority who remain convinced that there is more to life than atoms, molecules and bags of biodata. In developed nations, informal expressions of spirituality seem likely to multiply, as we see further decline in organised religion. Expect growth in personal systems for meditation, in self-help guides to spiritual enlightenment. So what will be the future of organised religion - Christianity, Islam and other global faith traditions?

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

Future Health Care Speaker, Future Pharma 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.

One moment changed my life forever - meeting my first patient with AIDS, and how it led to an international church-based movement in 18 nations - ACET

Spirituality, World Religion, Christianity, Church

I will never forget the first person I met with AIDS: a young student in London in 1987.   I can tell you the hour, the day, the month.

Just one person sick in a London hospital, out of 72 million who have been infected so far with HIV, of which half have already died, mainly in Africa. For the rest of my life, I will go on re-living that traumatic moment.  Let me explain why.  It led to a national and international people movement, mobilising churches to make a difference.

I had been asked to visit the AIDS ward, as a cancer doctor, to advise the medical team on how to relieve the symptoms of those who were very sick and dying.   I had no idea what I was going to find. I knew very little about AIDS, and I confess I was quite anxious about it all....

Can a Futurist REALLY predict the future? Here's loads of predictions I made over last 20+ years in 16 Futurist books and as a Futurist keynote speaker

Future Trends, Economy, Markets, Keynote Speaker

My new global trends book is out now:
The Future of Almost Everything. But it takes at least 20 years to evaluate how good a trends analyst was / is – so what about forecasts made by me in previous books, about what to expect over the following decade or two or three?  How did those forecasts measure up? I had to answer that question for myself by re-reading what I wrote in the past about the future, before writing my latest book.  Read FREE SAMPLE of The Truth about Almost Everything.

So you can judge for yourself, here are loads of predictions I made in the past - and the book in which they were made plus date.  Every one of these is already a reality or looks like it soon could be, as of August 2015....And yes I got some things wrong - not many fortunately.

Future of Pharma Reimbursement and Health Care Trends, Treatment Access and Funding Approval - why health care rationing will dominate pharma funding - impact on patients and pharma profits

Future Health Care Speaker, Future Pharma Keynotes

Notes on pharma trends keynote. In the past, the major challenge for a pharma company was to develop a new therapy, prove impact in clinical trials, show safety, and get licience approval to enable the product to be sold commercially.  Typically the process could take up to 15 years, and cost up to $1.2 billion, which all had to be recouped in 10 years of sales before the patent ran out.  But today there is a massive additional hurdle which is persuading cash-strapped governments and insurers to fund a new therapy for patients.  It is no longer enough to prove the therapy works, saves lives, has less side effects and so on.  The pharma company has to make the case that the therapy offers good value for money compared to other treatments for the same condition. Need a world-class pharma keynote speaker for your event?
