Geopolitics for Business Workshop Series: Wage Against the Machine?

Register Now

Geopolitics shapes your business environment. The geography of politics and socio-economics affects your development. Learning about geopolitics (while talking about competitiveness and business risks) means improving your awareness of what is happening around you.

Antonia Colibasanu discusses the analytical toolkit needed. She holds a PhD. in International Business and Economics, she advises on business and geopolitics and works with best selling authors George Friedman and Robert Kaplan. Antonia currently works with Geopolitical Futures. Before 2016, she worked with Stratfor for more than 10 years, holding various positions, including that of VP for International Marketing and Partner for Europe.

The Geopolitics for Business workshops are about learning to identify, in a timely manner, those forces that are changing your business environment, which allow you to build appropriate strategies for resilient growth. Without the proper analytical toolkit, you will miss opportunities. Worse still, you won’t recognize the early signs of a recession or a crisis. This is why you need to nurture your analytical abilities – to invest in their constant development.

In previous workshops, talks were about the analytical framework and the importance of resources in building up strategy. Now, it is time to learn how to value the links between all elements shaping your environment and pointing to internal and external change So, we’re introducing our next question….

Wage against the machine?

We will be joined in our discussions by Prof. Georgios Panos of the Adam Smith Business School – Glasgow University. Together, we will debate and learn about growing our business while dealing with changes affecting finances, human resources and…geopolitics.

Some broad topics and questions we’ll tackle during the 4 hours long workshop – obviously, there will be more (you’ll actually be asked to send us questions as you sign-up for the workshop – it is a tailored experience, after all and it is meant to help you grow):

  • The educational curriculum in finance and technology
  • Financial knowledge and robot-proof skills
  • International institutions in the era of automation and digitisation

Some questions to answer:

  • Financial resources + technology – what’s different and what’s similar? how is interdependence build now (as opposed to the 20th century)? 
  • Fintech and state influence – is fintech “used” by the states? how?
  • Human resources – how is the labor market reacting (in the financial industry, but not only)?early bird rate-1Follow Us on Facebook
