Joshua Cooper Ramo - Power, Fortune, and Survival in the Age of Networks
Vice Chairman and Co-CEO, Kissinger Associates

Tuesday, May 31, 2016 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Joshua Cooper Ramo may have one of the world’s most interesting minds – and the ability to express his thoughts clearly in an era burdened with the challenges of unexpected events.

He built a career in journalism, consulting, monitoring China and became known as a protégé of former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. With that combination of experience, he is now looking into the future with The Seventh Sense, the title of his latest book.

Its subtitle is Power, Fortune and Survival in the Age of Networks. In it, according to the book’s summary, he “explores what all the successful figures of this age see and feel: the disruptive force of networks in trade, politics, DNA, finance, the internet, and more. He introduces a new way of seeing the world, one which is based on his years advising generals, CEOs, and politicians.”

Ramo, who once oversaw digital operations at TIME and covered technology for the magazine, is now Vice Chairman and Co-CEO of Kissinger Associates and a member of the board of directors of Starbucks and FedEx. His biography reports that his “clients include some of the largest companies and investors in the world. Author of the international bestseller The Age of the Unthinkable, he puts forth a radical model for thriving in a world of uncertainty.” (The Age of the Unthinkable, published in 2009, became an international bestseller. Its subtitle is Why the New World Disorder Constantly Surprises Us and What We Can Do About It.)

He speaks Mandarin, lives in both Beijing and New York and has spent more than a decade as an on-scene observer of China’s rise as a superpower.

Ramo, raised in New Mexico, holds degrees from the University of Chicago and NYU. He has been a Crown Fellow of the Aspen Institute and was a founder of the US-China Young Leaders Forum. He was the China analyst for NBC during the 2008 Olympic Games and has appeared on such programs as Meet the Press, Fareed Zakaria GPS and Charlie Rose.
