Event description
Most people are poorer today in real terms than they were in 2008. The Risks to the UK and how Consultants can help.

About this event

The UK has seen an unprecedented (since the 1820s) phenomenon after the Global Financial Crisis: Mass Impoverishment.

Most people are poorer today in real terms than they were in 2008. And the problem is set to get worse unless we see a radical shift in government policy. This session will include an introduction to the facts, and allow time for discussion of two key questions:

  1. Is there a better future for the UK?
  2. What can consultants do to make it happen?

Speaker: Mark Thomas is the author of "99% - How we been screwed and how to fight back!"

It was a Financial Times Book of the Year in 2019.

A diagnosis of things gone wrong with the economy, a critique of post facts and obstacles to change and ideas to improve policy.

Mark was a leading strategy consultant before becoming an author/activist. He has spent most of his career in business; for many years he ran the Strategy practice at PA Consulting Group

During this time, he began to explore whether the tools and techniques of business strategy could be applied to understanding the health and stability of countries. This research led him to the uncomfortable conclusion that many developed countries – including the US and the UK – are unwittingly pursuing economic policies which will result in the unwinding of 20th century civilisation before we reach the year 2050. Hearteningly, he also concluded that this fate is entirely avoidable.

Mark is also the author of The Complete CEO, and The Zombie Economy.

Mark is a Visiting Professor at IE Business School and has a degree in Mathematics from Cambridge University.
