Do you know the future of the World? Get ready for a thrilling ride! As the world emerges from a dramatic financial crisis, key trends are emerging that will influence all our lives – for some time to come.
In Tracking the Future, Political Analyst and Futurist, Daniel Silke, presents a compelling and challenging new analysis of the top ten trends that will transform the world over the next two decades. Silke identifies 10 key areas of dramatic change that will affect all our lives – as individuals, in society or in the business environment. Some of these changes are already here – and many more are coming at a ferocious speed. Are you or your business ready to understand this and adapt?
Some of the core issues that form part of Daniel’s acclaimed presentation which are elaborated on in his book include:
