Ten Years to Midnight: Four Urgent Global Crises and Their Strategic Solutions
Blair Sheppard, Head of Global Strategy and Leadership, PWC

Thursday, September 3, 2020 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Time Zone: America/Chicago
Local Time: Thursday, September 3, 2020 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM


In the 70 years following the introduction of the Marshall Plan, the world saw unparalleled prosperity – but Blair Sheppard argues this steady prosperity has now “unraveled.” Rising economic inequality, disruption caused by technology, polarization overcoming consensus, and a loss of trust in institutions are driving significant global challenges. Blair believes the current trajectories of prosperity, technology, institutional legitimacy and leadership have created an existential crisis, “But if we tackle them now, thoughtfully, imaginatively, creatively, and energetically, in ten years we could be looking at a dawn instead of darkness.”

Blair H. Sheppard is the global leader for strategy and leadership at PwC, a network of professional services firms committed to building trust in society and solving important problems. He is also professor emeritus and dean emeritus of Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business. During his time at Duke, he was the founding CEO and chairman of Duke Corporate Education and was the principal force behind opening Duke’s campus in China. Five of the coauthors are directors in global strategy and leadership at PwC and one is a leading business journalist. - Bio provided by Berrett-Koehler Publishers
