Megatrends are large global trends that will play out over time, and impact all of humankind. Being aware of these is being forearmed. Join us as we unpack the big 5 Global Megatrends - Finite Earth; Demographics; Shifts of Power; Technology and Financial Repression. Understanding these trends will aid in developing your organisational strategy and pave the way to a more successful and sustainable business. Particular focus will be placed on the Financial Repression Megatrend, and the impact of this on the global financial system.
