The forces shaping emerging markets: Aging, Shrinking, Hypergrowth
In this morning's keynote, Wim Elfrink, Chief Globalisation Officer, Cisco presented his game-changing advice for how to win in emerging markets. He started with a disclaimer slide basically letting us know that thoughts were his own, not Cisco's (Aside: I love disclaimer slides...enjoy seeing how much text and legalese companies can get onto the page - LOL!).
What are the challenges facing us?
- New value creation and productivity improvements
- Talent mismatch: supply and demand issue
- Energy management and urbanization
- Access to healthcare and education
