What Future for Saudi Arabia? Keys to competitiveness, investment, innovation, education, diversify economy - Saudi Arabia keynote

Future of Saudi Arabia - keynote at Global Competitiveness Forum (GCF 2015) organised by SAGIA. Comments by Patrick Dixon, Chairman Global Change Ltd, following keynote at the Riyadh event.

With a young and rapidly growing population, a key government objective is to create several million new jobs over the next few years, for nationals rather than for migrant workers.  Indeed the future well-being of the nation may depend on being able to generate enough new jobs, particularly for those from 18-30 years old.  While national policies have been developed to encourage companies to employ local people, Saudi Arabia is also looking to stimulate growth of local business and encourage inward investment. Need a world-class keynote speaker on competitiveness in the Middle East for your event?

Reducing RISKS in Banking - future of risk management in banks and why many banks are blind to the combined impact of different events - risk management keynote speaker

Video comment and clips from keynote on risk management for clients of Wolters Kluwer. Future of risk management in banks - urgent steps that every bank needs to take to reduce risks while still remaining agile and able to innovate.  Banks face multiple, highly complex risks in a world that is changing faster than you can call a board meeting. Some of these banking risks are preventing innovation - for example paralysis which often happens for several years after a merger, while legacy IT systems are made to work together.  Others are working against customer interests - slowing down services or preventing access altogether.  Some risks such as cyberattack are likely to grow rapidly over the next decade.  Follow the link below to see all the slides of the risk management keynote. Need a world-class banking keynote speaker?
