We enter 2022 with mixed messages on the state of the world economy.
- A very strong recovery in 2021 despite the persistence of a global pandemic and new variants that are threatening some of the success of the vaccines
- A booming stock market that continues to defy the pessimistic predictions of an overpriced market
- Record level of hirings while we also witness increasing resignations and exits from the labour market
- Inflation at levels we had not seen in decades while supply keeps reacting to a surge in demand
- Acceleration in digitalization and the promise of a new technology revolution (web3, the metaverse, decentralized finance) surrounded by fears that hype about certain buzzwords will create volatile bubble dynamics in some of these markets
In this session, Antonio Fatas will provide an update on the state of the world economy with a focus on navigating the uncertainty created by seemingly opposing narratives about what the year 2022 might bring from a macroeconomic point of view.

Your success and your well-being are dependent on how effectively you are able to manage interactions with other people in and outside your organisation. This programme will teach you powerful and effective verbal principles and tools for dealing with other people that will allow you to be clear and direct without ever being abrupt or brutal; to generate trust, respect and liking; to broach difficult subjects and announce difficult news constructively; to avoid the twin pitfalls of perceived arrogance or subservience – and instead to speak as a trusted equal to everyone you deal with, from the humblest member of your staff to your most important client’s CEO.
