We wanted to let you know that General John Allen has a new speech that is receiving incredible reviews. Allen wanted to offer a concise and complete look at the “new era of great power competition” that’s rising across the globe.

Having never before seen so many complex issues all at once, Allen developed a construct for explaining the big power threats American interests face — and how they will each affect organizations moving forward. It’s called the “four plus one.” The four big contenders are Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea, and the one that represents the extremist jihadi network at large. 

Looking at the challenges these nations present to America, Allen then hit on five global megatrends that are either causing these power-dynamics or a result of them:

  • Shifts in economic power from West to East
  • Demographic changes
  • Rapid urbanization
  • The rise of technology
  • Global warming
If your group is concerned with the major trends and power competitions that will influence business over the next generation, this is an incredibly in-depth and thought-provoking speech that can also be hosted as a fireside chat with a CEO or a panel discussion.

We highly recommend Gen. Allen for his professionalism, charisma, and ability to translate major issues into day-to-day takeaways for executives and interns alike.
