Mauro Guillén: Keynotes And Live-Stream Presentations on the Impact of Coronavirus
In the midst of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak, the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania has developed a new course to address how global businesses and financial uncertainty can be managed. On the 9th March 2020, Mauro Guillén released a press release, stating the 7-week class taking place in Wharton School.
Mauro Guillén is coordinating a 7-week class on the fallout from Coronavirus/COVID-19. With 350 students thus far, and a focus to his book: “2030: How Today’s Biggest Trends Will Collide and Reshape the Future of Everything”, Mauro explores how trends will converge in the year of 2030 and change culture, the economy, and the world.
A renowned expert on global market trends, Mauro is available for keynotes and live-stream presentations on this topic.
Mauro’s book, “2030“, is both a remarkable guide, and reference to the 7-week class, to the changes that are presently occurring and an exercise in power of “lateral thinking” through revolutionising the way an individual thinks about cataclysmic change and its consequences.
