Noreena Hertz Speaker Biography

For more than two decades Noreena Hertz's economic predictions have been accurate and ahead of the curve. In her #1 best-selling book "The Silent Takeover", Hertz predicted that unregulated markets and massive financial institutions would have serious global consequences whilst her 2005 best-seller, "IOU: The Debt Threat", predicted the 2008 financial crisis. Her books have been translated into 17 languages.

Many have described Professor Hertz as a visionary and she is one of the most influential economists on the international stage. Her unique, integrated approach combines traditional economic analysis with foreign policy trends, psychology, behavioural economics, anthropology, history and sociology. And her work is considered to provide a much needed blueprint for rethinking economics and corporate strategy.

Hertz is the Duisenberg Professor of Globalization, Sustainability and Finance based at Duisenberg School of Finance, RSM, Erasmus University and University of Cambridge. She is also a Fellow of University College London. She has a PhD from the University of Cambridge, an MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and a BA from University College London.

Noreena played an influential role in the development of (RED), an innovative commercial model to raise money for people with AIDS in Africa, having inspired Bono (co-founder of the project) with her writings. She advises major multinational corporations, CEOs, NGOs and politicians, as well as start-up companies, and sits on various corporate and charitable boards. Her op-ed pieces have been published in newspapers such as "The Washington Post", and "The Financial Times" and she is regularly profiled and featured in leading print and television media in Europe, the United States, Asia and Latin America.

Hertz is also a much sought after "keynote speaker" and has spoken alongside such luminaries as Bill Clinton, James Wolfensohn, Hernando de Soto and Jeffrey Sachs at corporate events and also at ones organised by International Organisations such as the World Economic Forum at Davos.

Inflation at a forty year high. Interest rates rising. Dark clouds over the economy. Meanwhile the march of technology ever faster and geopolitical and political tensions continuing to rise.

Now more than ever making the right strategic decisions is crucial. But how to make smart decisions in a time as uncertain and complex as this? A time of political upheaval and economic downturn, technological shits, and significant societal change.

Combining economic analysis with insights from psychology, neuroscience, sociology and history, as well as research from her latest books The Lonely Century and Eyes Wide Open, Professor Noreena Hertz, in this fascinating speech, helps C-Suite executives think strategically about how to navigate the next eighteen months with agility, innovation and success.


How will the geopolitical landscape change over the next few years? What is going to happen to the economy? What are the major technological shifts you need to prepare for? How is the ageing of the population going to impact your business? How will the post millennials change your workplace and offerings? What are the main looming political and cultural forces that need to be on your radar?

From the internationally bestselling author and economist Noreena Hertz - a globally renowned thinker with a proven track record in predicting global trends - comes an up-to-date keynote speech on where the world is heading and what this means for business leaders.

From the economy to technology, from key societal and demographic trends to political and geopolitical forces, Noreena lays out where the world is heading, what this means for business leaders, and how in a time as complex as these to make the smartest and most strategic choices you can.

In this Keynote Speech Noreena Hertz lays out what she sees as the key Global Trends of our times, identifies the challenges this means we face, and provides a series of insightful and counterintuitive steps we need to take if we are to successfully manage them.

The Five Forces that are Transforming our World

What is the world going to look like in the next two to three years? What are the key challenges and opportunities business leaders will face?

In this landmark keynote speech, Professor Noreena Hertz outlines the key forces - geopolitical, economic, societal, technological - that she believes are transforming the world and should be on every business leader's radar.


40 percent of office workers globally feel lonely. One in five do not have a single friend at work.

This is not just a problem for individuals, it's also exacting a significant business cost. The lonely are less productive, efficient and motivated than their non-lonely colleagues and significantly more likely to quit.

At a time of hiring challenges, when productivity needs to be on the rise, understanding how to make your workplace feel connected and your employees feel more bonded to each other, is crucial.

Meanwhile your customers are lonely too - especially now post pandemic. With one in five millennials without a single friend, and one in four people feeling lonely, if you can authentically speak to this fundamental human need for togetherness and belonging you will reap a significant dividend.

- Best Reads from Financial Times

- 'Top 5 Books of the Year 2020' by Daily Telegraph

- One of Wired UK's best Science and Tech books in 2020

- A Book of the Year by Waterstones

In a thought-provoking and inspiring keynote speech helps audiences understand why this is the Loneliest Century on record, why it matters to business, and what leaders can do to redesign their workplace and offerings so as to authentically deliver community and connection.
