Dr. Ian Goldin is the first Director of the Oxford Martin School, and he holds a Professorial Fellowship at Balliol College, Oxford. A global futurist, he is perfectly placed to throw light on how major trends will affect business and financial services. His latest book is “Exceptional People: How Migration Shaped Our World and Will Define Our Future” (2011, with Geoffrey Cameron and Meera Balarajan).

Ian was Vice President of the World Bank (2003-06) and prior to that the Bank’s Director of Development Policy (2001-03). Ian served on the Bank’s senior management team, and was directly responsible for its relationship with the UK, Europe and North America. He led the Bank’s collaboration with the United Nations and other partners and, as Director of Development Policy, played a pivotal role in the research and strategy agenda of the Bank.

From 1996 to 2001 he was Chief Executive and Managing Director of the Development Bank of Southern Africa and served as an adviser to President Nelson Mandela. He succeeded in making the Bank the leading agent of development in the 14 countries of Southern Africa. During this period, Ian served on several Government committees and Boards, and was Finance Director for South Africa’s Olympic Bid.

Previously, Ian was Principal Economist at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) in London, and Programme Director at the OECD Development Centre in Paris, where he directed the Programs on Trade, Environment and Sustainable Development.
