Speech Topics

Growth in a Low Growth Economy

What can Western enterprises do now to enhance their competitiveness and find growth opportunities in a low growth environment? Drawing on compelling research from the new Monitor report, “Growth in a Low Growth Economy,” Eamonn Kelly paints a challenging picture of the world over the next decade, outlining why we’re likely to experience a low-growth environment for longer than we might expect; describing new realities about consumers and consumption; charting how low growth will magnify and accelerate changes in the nature of globalization. His conclusion: growth will return, but the past patterns will not. Eamonn points to actions leaders can take now to be prepared for new sources of growth--and claim a disproportionate share.
