How China will dominate the world, and why most business leaders are blind to China's impact. Future of China, economy, trade, manufacturing, consumers, retail, e-commerce, military and security. Futurist Keynote Speaker

By 2040 China will dominate almost all global markets. Most business and government leaders are blind to China's gigantic future impact. China already has the world’s largest banking assets of $42 trillion, and China is the world’s largest economy when measured by Purchasing Power Parity, which takes into account how much the same basic items cost in each nation.

China is the world's largest manufacturer, the largest exporter, the fastest growing consumer market. China is the world leader in digital innovation, high-speed rail and green tech. China generates 40% of all global e-commerce transactions, and files more patents than any other nation. Mandarin is the most common first language spoken by 800 million web users, and China is the world’s largest e-commerce market with 40% of global share.  Chinese people will spend which $1.8 trillion online by 2022....

3 billion more cars on roads. Future of the Auto Industry. Robot drivers, next-generation electric vehicles, hydrogen, shared ownership, eVTOL flying cars, traffic management, road infrastructure, smart cities - future of auto industry keynote speaker

More than 1 billion cars are on the roads today. But we would need to see that rise to 4 billion for the whole world to have the same level of car ownership as America.

By then, almost all of them will be electric powered, and the majority driven entirely or assisted by robots. Inevitably, roads will be very congested, especially in city centres, many of which will ban private vehicles most or all of the time by 2030. Most new car owners will be in emerging markets over the next 50 years. Chinese people are driving 230 million cars, most than any other nation, 8% owned by 40,000 car rental companies. Private car ownership in China jumped from 1% to 21% from 2002 to 2019, with more than 24 million new cars now sold a year....

The truth about COVID: Greatest global risk is rapid spread in low-income nations with few resources to prevent explosive growth of infections, and many new variants. Future of health care keynote speaker

12th February 2020

Repeated warnings about mutant flu / new viruses like SARS-CoV-2 - wider long term picture

At a time of panic in some communities, here is a common sense view. I am writing as a physician and trends analyst who has been involved in the fight against HIV (another mutant virus) for over three decades. Since 1987 I have been predicting the great vulnerability of our world to new mutant viruses or mutations of existing ones, in my book The Truth about AIDS, in Futurewise published in 1998, and in The Future of Almost Everything published in 2015/2019...

Most debates about future trends are about TIMING. How to get timing right in business - new products and services. Innovation. Futurist keynote speaker - VIDEO

Most board room debates about future are not usually about what is going to happen.

Longer term industry trends are usually fairly obvious and well understood by business leaders. The most important issue is often timing. By WHEN will most new cars sold in Europe be electric powered. BY WHEN will use of cash start to fall in America.

Timing really matters. And timing / trends are hugely influenced by customer mood, emotion, soft factors which change customer behaviour. You can have the best Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data analytics, cloud computing, astonishing innovation in the Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, Manufacturing 4.0, robotics and automation - but real progress can be surprisingly slower or faster than you expect.

Sustainable energy in cities: Green Tech impact on construction and the built environment, Net Zero homes and offices. Combined Heat and Power (CHP) role in reducing carbon emissions in cities. Smart cities. Future of Construction Keynote Speaker - VIDEO

Huge importance of CHP Combined Heat and Power for sustainable heating in cities. Large scale, efficient, integrating multiple energy sources ranging from gas to solar, wind, biomass, heat pumps and so on.  Expect Combined Heat and Power to be increasingly insisted on by government regulators for larger projects, coupled with high insulation and green power generation where possible.

Comments on visit to Brussels after giving keynote to Euroheat and Power in France recently. Huge challenge in meeting carbon emission targets and reducing threat from climate change / global warming. Decarbonising energy production is relatively easy - converting power generation from coal to gas, adding solar and wind etc.

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

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....
