What Don Reynolds Talk About:

Global Economic Tour
In the last twenty years the global economy has produced three billion new capitalists with a voracious appetite for consumer products, while creating a new global labor market. Asia has become the second engine of global economic growth; Europe seeks to define its new global identity; Latin America witnesses the birth of a new middle class; and mineral and agricultural rich Canada is perfectly positioned. Don presents a bold assessment of the current political and economic events and forecasts major trends in the global economy.

Economy & Financial Markets
As a former Chairman of the Board on Pension & Investment Committees responsible for $120 Billion, Don specializes in strategic asset allocation based on long-term trend analysis and understanding of ‘Big Picture Scenarios’ and their impact on specific industries. He has a profound real-world insight into Financial Markets in such key areas as interest rates, energy prices, real estate, and economic policy. Though a long-term optimist, he is refreshingly candid about current economic realities and short term solutions vs. long term wealth creation.

Tectonic Plates of Change
The velocity of change is accelerating due to Globalization, Demographics, and Technology. When these forces interact, massive changes or tectonic shifts occur, creating a visceral new reality. To be successful, companies and individuals need to become pro-active, anticipatory, and inter-disciplinary. You will learn how these trends will impact your own work environment and how to apply those trends in predicting your own future.

Ethics in the 21st Century
From Aristotle to the inheritance rights of human clones, Don discusses the significant moral and ethical challenges confronting society from: corporate scandals and white collar crime to privacy rights. New ethical dilemmas are posed by technology, biogenetics, and an aging population. He believes that the increasing velocity of change is outstripping society’s ability to cope or regulate, leading to a decline in civility and ethical standards. But, answers can be found in corporate responsibility and a coming resurgence of long term values.
