Developing a coherent vision of political, social and economic trends is essential for business leadership. The Global Affairs Forum 2007 provides students with an overview of some of the global issues that impact business decision-making. The objective is to explore the ways in which business leaders can help address these problems and effectively become part of the solution.
In this ongoing seminar, outstanding business, political, academic and civil society leaders engage with the students and together analyse current challenges, threats and opportunities such as global terrorism, environmental degradation, the rise of China, and the importance of social impact in business.

Today’s Invited Speaker: John Llewellyn, Senior Economic Advisor, Lehman Brothers
In this unique lecture, Mr. Llewellyn will present his recently published report: The Business of Climate Change: Challenges and Opportunities. The publication first analyzes the hard scientific data about climate change, then explores the economic consequences of global warming and concludes with concrete examples of the impact climate change will have on different business sectors and industries. In Llewellyn’s own words: “Global warming is likely to prove one of those tectonic forces that gradually but powerfully changes the economic landscape in which business operate.” Those who seize the opportunity this represents will do well. Those that do not will be left behind.
