In a world of exponential change, we work with clients to answer the burning question: “Where we do go from here?”

We provide context to the chaos by providing a “where we’ve been, where we are and where we’re going” structure.

We cover the economy, govt. policy, super charged trends & a case study on growth opportunities for your industry.

Today is the slowest rate of change in your life and business. It only gets faster from here.

The war in Ukraine is an example of the rapid change and how it can impact every business.

Keynote Topics

Future Economy: growth opportunities

Format: 30-45-minute keynote with Q&A

The world is going to see more economic change in the next 5 years than we have seen in the last 100 years. Just as the US was getting over the worst of COVID, Russia invaded and China shutdown ports due to COVID. War in the Ukraine, inflation soaring, interest rates spiking, supply chains crashing are all examples of the speed of change.

But how did we get here? More importantly, where do we go from here?

Andy provides the context needed to understand the forces at work creating momentum for change in the economy and your business. AI, climate subsidies and co-bots are just a few of the extraordinary tools/spending being leveraged right now. Are you aligning yourself for what will occur? Andy literally wrote the book on large, catastrophic events and how they impact our markets, economy and world. As a futurist and economist, Andy dives deep into exploring how innovation, policy changes and societal shifts (war) drive opportunities for clients. He provides context by doing a “where we’ve been, where we are and where we’re going” for the economy. He takes the trends super charged by COVID & war, then applies them to your industry via a case study to show where money is flowing, and opportunities are growing.

2024 US Presidential Election: growth opportunities

Format: 30-45-minute keynote with Q&A

The race for 2024 starts in 2023. These midterm elections will likely bring big changes for US legislation, regulations and economy. Gridlock is likely, but don’t be fooled by the name as there will be plenty of action in Congress. Did the January 6th committee make an impact? How will a split Congress impact regulation? Inflation? Fiscal spending? Trade? Supreme Court? Federal Reserve Policy? What will be the Biden legislative strategy for the remaining 2 years of his presidency? How will all this impact the 2024 US Presidential election and who are the top candidates from both sides of the aisle? Most importantly, how will the elections impact your business? As an economic futurist, Andrew Busch has been in the US government when a power shift occurred and provides his insights into answering all these questions. Most importantly, he gives you an outlook for the growth opportunities coming from these changes for your industry and members.

Audience takeaways:

  • Outlook from outcome of US House and Senate midterm elections
  • Key policy changes on legislation, trade and regulations impacting your industry
  • Growth opportunities created by the changes and key trends driving the economic future

Future work: growth opportunities

If the world feels like it’s speeding up, that’s because it is. Technological changes via cloud computing, computer speed and algorithmic modeling are advancing more rapidly than anyone could’ve guessed five years ago. The tumult they will create for the economy and jobs is part of the chaos we can expect going forward. But what are the growth opportunities for those entering the workforce today? How will the reshaping of our economy drive change and demand for new skills? Which jobs will be phased out and which ones will survive? As an economic futurist, Andrew Busch speaks with CEOs and top managers for every business sector as he creates research on the future economy for his clients. From financial services to plastics, Andy gets the inside scoop on what the top business minds consider challenges and future growth opportunities.

Audience takeaways:

  • What is “foundational AI” and how is it already changing the job market?
  • What jobs will likely survive and what jobs will likely fade away?
  • How will this impact the economy, and will policy changes make a difference?
  • How to prepare today for the rapid shift coming to employment?
