Future of Travel, Tourism, Corporate Travel, Aviation, Hospitality and Hotels - travel industry keynote speaker for American Express

Here is a video of the keynote I gave on the future of travel for American Express in Moscow.  I gave a keynote on the same topic a couple of years earlier and the audience loved it so much that they asked me to return.

To make the point that video conferencing is a terrible experience compared to breathing the same air, being in the same room, they asked me to start my keynote by video link, from another room, and then walk right onto the platform, when talking about video calls and their impact on business travel.

So I recommend that you start the video around 2 minutes in - and enjoy your journey into the future....

How to repair human organs, build new organs and regenerate your brain, liver, kidney, spinal cord and retina. Why stem cells will change our lives - future of health care

JUST AS I PREDICTED - 14 years ago in the video above.  We are now curing blindness in humans, using their own stem cells.

Stem cells are primitive cells which have the capacity to grow into many different types of organs. We now know that whenever an organ in your body is injured, these special cells are released by the bone marrow into the blood, which automatically search out areas of damage. 

The cells migrate to where they are most needed, and help in repairs.  In most cases we think the way they do this is by producing special chemicals such as cytokines, and other proteins or fats, which stimulate local regeneration.

The good news is that doctors have decades of experience of using stem cells in health care, treating people with advanced leukaemia which is cancer of the bone marrow. And we can find stem cells in many different parts of the body.

The TRUTH about the Global Economy, Wholesale Finance, Future Interest Rates, Real Estate Development and the Future of Banking - Keynote Speaker

We may debate the economics of the world over the last decade, but the fact is that many corporations now have huge cash mountains and no idea what to do with it. Trillions of dollars of cash is sitting in bank accounts of large companies doing nothing at all - more than $2.3 trillion in large Japanese companies alone. $12 trillion was made available a few years ago by Central Banks to the largest banks in their own nations. $3.7 trillion was by the US Federal Reserve alone. In addition $10 trillion of government bonds were issued with negative rates of interest (see below). Yet despite all this, many banks have refused to take cash offered by governments to help stimulate their economies, even when they are effectively fined by Central Banks for doing so...

The truth about future health: why many health costs will fall dramatically, yet care budgets will soar. Impact on society, budgets, pharma, biotech, medtech, hospitals and home care - keynote speaker on health trends

Expect more health care innovation from 2045 - 2050 than in all human history

That is because health care knowledge is doubling every 24 months. It means we will know 32,000 times in 2048 than today more about how the human body works, why disease happens, how to detect early disease, how to treat illness effectively, and how to promote health. The growth of medical knowledge shows no signs of slowing down, indeed it is accelerating.

Take for example the Human Genome Project. Back in 2001 it cost around $800m to decode or sequence most of the genetic code of just one human being. By 2006, the cost per genome sequence had already fallen to around $300,000.

Today, the same can be achieved for around $1000, using Illumina’s highest-end products, including reagents and an appropriate contribution to the capital cost of its machines. For example, the NovaSeq 6000 machine costs around $1m to buy. So how will this technology and 100,000 other innovations change future health care??

Shocking facts about your future - how 11 billion people will eat, sleep and breathe in our future world where 1% owns 65% of the wealth, 85% live in emerging markets, with new people movements and revolutionary forces

Unsustainable population growth

One billion children will become consumers in the next 15 years – the biggest jump in human history.

Today in Africa 350 million children see glimpses of your lifestyle and compare this to their own, surviving on less than $3 a day. Most of them will spend their entire adult lives living in cities, chasing dreams of wealth.

By 2025, most people on the planet will be in Asia.

85% of the world’s population will be living in emerging markets or today’s developing countries by then, mostly in cities.

Only 1 in 7 will be in today’s developed nations, driving less than 10% of the world’s economic growth.

Truth about Robots - will robots destroy millions of jobs? What future for human beings at work? Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Keynote Speaker

Robots and Robotics Keynote SpeakerYesterday I shared a platform with a ROBOT to give a keynote (for EY / Ernst & Young) - as I do regularly....but I'm at no risk whatsoever of losing my job to the automaton.

I have worked with over 400 of the world's largest companies over the last few years, as a Futurist advisor / keynote speaker - and huge numbers of them are worried about robotics / AI / Artificial Intelligence. What does it mean for our business? Are we investing enough in Big Data analytics? How will competitors attack our markets using robotics and next-generation automation. How will Artificial Intelligence control our future?

At the same time, in the media everyday we see sensational headlines such as "Hundreds of millions of jobs will be lost to robots", suggesting that humankind will never be able to find enough work for tomorrow's people, because so many jobs will be done by machines....

Future Health Care - book extract: MedTech, Biotech, NanoTech, Infotech- impact on health trends, longevity forecasts, hospitals, future home care and the future of the pharma industry in developed nations, emerging markets - health care keynote speaker

Future of Health - extract from The Future of Almost Everything book, by Futurist keynote speaker and physician, Dr Patrick Dixon, advisor to over 400 of the world's largest corporations, including many multinational pharma and health care companies.

We have seen how the future of every nation is linked to demographics, migrations and cities. But these things are also linked to the future health: not only how many people are born, but how fit they are and how long they live. And in health care, most of humankind will see an astonishing revolution over the next 30-50 years. The fact is that 65% of all health care spending in developed nations is on those over the age of 65, most of whom have several chronic health conditions, almost all related to the ageing process. Therefore it could be said that every pharma company and every hospital exists primarily to serve the health care needs of older people, in those parts of the world.

The greatest health challenges in the next two decades are almost all related to ageing, as many emerging nations also become older...

Future of China - 300 year trend that will shake the entire world. Truth about so-called "emerging markets" and future risks for China - keynote

China is a wealthy ‘nation of nations’ with a huge middle class, gigantic manufacturing capacity, its own dotcom boom, the world’s largest high-speed rail network, and one of the best educated workforces in the world. China is evolving rapidly and for many globalised corporations manufacturing in China is becoming a rather old-fashioned idea, because of rising costs.

China is now the world’s largest economy according to the World Bank, on the measure of purchasing power parity (PPP), which looks at what the local currency will actually buy, after adjusting for international exchange rates.  China’s economy will be three times the size of India’s in 2025, as it is today, but we can expect that India will close that gap in the longer term.

On an absolute dollar basis, China will be the world’s largest economy by 2024, propelled by a threefold rise in consumer spending each year from $3.5 trillion in 2014 to $10.5 trillion by 2024. This will all be part of a transition from an export-led, manufacturing economy to a more balanced economy serving Chinese consumers.
