Bernards’s 2019 ICMA EXPO keynote presentation will cover the following information and more:

The U.S. is about to reach an historic milestone. For the first time in history the economy will soon enter its 11th straight year of growth. How much longer can these good times last? What is the outlook for consumer and business spending, interest rates, inflation and energy prices? How will ongoing trade tensions disrupt established supply chains in the world, impact operating costs and economic growth? Which countries will be the leaders and laggards in the global economy? One dynamic force that is profoundly changing how consumers and businesses act is the growing use of AI, robotics, e-commerce, megadata and blockchain technology. At the same time, global hackers are using the same technology to access trade secrets, steal personal data and sabotage economies. What urgent actions should corporate leaders take to better protect themselves from adverse economic, geopolitical and cyber shocks?
