Gerald worked in international finance in London, Hong Kong and Switzerland. He has since published The Tangled World and Two Speed World, exploring the impact of both explosive and gradual change. In presentations he shows how we misunderstand risks and have too narrow a view of models and decision making. With no perfect solutions and many ‘known unknowns’, we are often influenced by context and instinctive biases rather than rational analysis.

Attali has served as Head of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and chaired a Sarkozy commission examining the obstacles to French growth. He advocates deregulation, major investment in education and greater communication. Attali’s latest book, A Brief History of the Future, argues that by 2100 individual countries will have disappeared. What we need, as present crises in finance and climate show, are functioning world institutions and a global rule of law.

Before Aznar took office, Spain had low growth and widescale unemployment. He liberalised the market, privatised industry, increased GDP by 68% and made it the world’s eighth largest economy. Now, as many European countries struggle with sovereign debt, he shares strategies for revival. Aznar considers options for Europe, consequences for business and potential ramifications in the developing world – especially in those countries trying to build stability.

Sanjay lectures at the Indian School of Business in Hyderabad and the Tata Management Training Centre. He’s also consulted for start-ups and held senior retail roles across the region.

He looks at consumer trends and the challenge for brands in a country with 12 million outlets and a rapidly growing, media-savvy middle class.

As President of the EU’s executive and legislative branch, José Manuel dealt with the expansion of the Union, the fallout from the financial crisis, and closer integration of member states. He is also a critic of all sides in the Brexit debate and believes the EU could have done more to avoid it.

Alongside his American academic appointment, the former MPC member has also served as the Economics Editor of the New Statesman. Danny has warned that opposition to austerity isn’t enough without an alternative policy: Labour needs to “get real, understand that markets work, and learn fast.” As a specialist in ‘the everyday economics of people’ Danny focuses on real data, instead of forecasts.

As the United Nations looked on, Hans Blix led the search for WMD in Iraq. The ex-head of the Atomic Energy Agency then chaired a commission studying paths to clear the world of both nuclear, biological and chemical arms. He does not consider it utopian to envisage life without nuclear weapons - by 2050. Mutual interdependence could provide alternative non-military leverage, reducing the dependence on weapons of mass destruction as bargaining chips.
