Example of keynotes:

Institutional Investors, financial intermediaries, etc:
Honorary Keynote speaker and guest at Annual APAC Investments Summit 2015.
A reminder the APAC Investments Summit 2015 is the highest closed complimentary forum for the region’s leading institutional investors and family offices. Topic: Asia & Global Challenges. As monetary policies diverge between world regions, economic growth will diverge in all regions, including Asia. What are the investment implications of China’s growth deceleration, Japan’s Abenomics, ASEAN’s integration, amid the US pivot to Asia and China’s rebalancing in the region.

Business Executives and CEOs, etc:

Multiple presentations at the NYU/Stern School of Business Global Emerging Markets tours (basically for Fortune500 senior executives and CEOs). Topics: Chinese multinationals and innovation. Japan’s economic reforms and monetary shifts. US-China economic and business relations. Competitiveness of global cities and the rise of Chinese cities. The ‘new deal’ of global innovation.

Governments, Government Agencies, Economic Funds, etc:
Philippine Institute for Development Studies (one of the top global think-tanks in its field): Topic: Fed`s Monetary Policy and the Rising Dollar: Impact on Asia and Emerging Economies (Feb 11, 2015). In the absence of structural reforms, central banks will play a vital role in global growth prospects and currency markets in the near future. In the United States, the recovery is likely to strengthen, but there is no return to the pre-2008 status quo in the labor markets and the level of debt continues to rise. What will be the impact on the Asian and large emerging economies of the US government`s expected rate hikes and the European Central Bank and the Bank of Japan`s anticipated expanded quantitative easing? How will these policies impact the ongoing “currency wars”? Will economic stagnation further intensify geopolitical friction?

Chambers of Commerce, Business Councils, etc:
President Obama’s Legacy, U.S. Competitiveness, and the Pivot to Asia (AmCham Philippines Feb 16/2015)
As President Obama’s era is ending, the White House seeks to establish his legacy.
As the Administration seeks to complete two vital free trade agreements – one with the EU, and another with Asia Pacific economies – it hopes to win fast-track authority to surpass obstacles in Asia and headwinds in Europe. As the Fed will hike rates, while the ECB and BOJ will expand quantitative easing, what is the future of the U.S. pivot to Asia?
