A few times a year, Eric Noël steps out of his daily consulting job to present or facilitate seminars and conferences on long term trends, geo-economics and global markets. His most popular presentations are on the world towards 2030.
With increased economic turmoil, market confusion and political uncertainties, Eric Noël’s presentations, facilitated private seminars and conferences bring clarity and foresight to decision-making in a global context.
Through his on-going research and consulting, he is exposed to many of the fundamental political, economic, technological and environmental changes that affect investors and business and government leaders around the world. His macro-change monitoring and studies enable him to have 1) a unique top-down and multi-disciplinary approach on how societies, organizations and individuals can create their future or adapt to it and 2) to update his clients on tomorrow’s most critical issues.
As a global business and policy thinker and strategist, Eric tracks, studies and reframes a new, interdependent and chaotic global environment into contents that help major organizations anticipate and plan for tomorrow’s challenges.
His thinking and presentations are supported by 25 years of global research for Fortune 500 companies, large institutional investors, government agencies and international organizations. He has been involved in projects in more than 30 countries representing FDI or M&A flows above $30B. He has contributed to several foresight exercises in both the private and public sector and serves as external advisor to global organisations.
