WDI Will Host Talk on Thriving in an Unpredictable World

10/20/2004 --

A.T. Kearney's Paul Laudicina will discuss his new book "World Out of Balance" Oct. 27.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Paul Laudicina, managing director of A.T. Kearney's Global Business Policy Council, will speak Wednesday, Oct. 27, at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan on how to thrive in a world out of balance. His talk is sponsored by The William Davidson Institute.

Laudicina, author of the soon-to-be-released book "World Out of Balance," will address the five key forces driving a volatile and increasingly unpredictable world. Drawing on the council's extensive public and private sector work worldwide, Laudicina will sketch out a compelling view of likely future global scenarios and discuss prospects for a "world out of balance."

A.T. Kearney's Global Business Policy Council is a strategic service helping chief executives and government leaders monitor and capitalize on macroeconomic, geopolitical, socio-demographic and technological change worldwide.

Among the council's widely regarded intellectual capital are the FDI Confidence Index, an ongoing proprietary assessment of Global 1000 CEO investment destination preferences and attitudes; the Globalization Index, the first comprehensive empirical measure of globalization and its impact; and the Offshoring Location Attractiveness Index, a comparative assessment of the relative attractiveness of the top 25 offshoring destinations.

Before joining A.T. Kearney and founding the council nearly 15 years ago, Laudicina spent 20 years working on global strategic issues in various positions with industry, government and research institutions worldwide.

His speech is at 4 p.m. in the Phelps Lounge at the Ross School of Business. A reception will be held afterwards.
