Further Speaking Topics:
1. Sustainability, green, ethics, corporate responsibility
Hertz develops and explains the business case for why the smartest corporations need to engage with traditionally governmental issues – the environment, human rights, sustainability even poverty alleviation – for reasons not only of ethics but also of competitive advantage and profitability.

It’s not that the business of business is no longer business – it’s that as society evolves so do the demands on business change.

As one of the world’s leading experts on economic globalization, and as a thinker who has a unique understanding of consumer trends, activist movements, the changing business-society-government nexus and the realities of shareholder pressures Noreena weaves an engaging tale of how things were, how things are changing, and how companies need to respond to this.


2. Co-op capitalism
The financial crisis was a wake up call. Old style capitalism – what Hertz has called Gucci Capitalism isn’t working. But might the future look quite different to the last twenty years? Hertz argues that it will and lays out a vision of a new form of Capitalism – Co-op Capitalism. Based on her analysis of successful business and economic models outside of the mainstream – from Co-operative enterprises in Italy, to Collaborative ventures on the net such as Wikipedia; and also on her analysis of shifting geopolitical trends - Hertz puts forward an exciting new vision of what the future is moving towards. Towards Co-op Capitalism – a world in which networks and relationships matter and in which traditional measurements of success are being replaced by new and radical ones.

3. How to make sense of a complex world/ How to think smarter
Through her unique multi disciplinary integrated approach – combining economic analysis with insights from psychology, neuroscience, anthropology and sociology – Hertz seeks to make us smarter decision makers, better able to figure out what to do in a complex world. In this speech Hertz identifies thinking traps we all fall into that we are not aware of but need to be; and comes up with exciting active thinking strategies for her audiences to adopt so as to be able to make smarter decisions in their professional and personal lives.

4. Why women matter
Women and gender has been a long time subject of interest for Hertz. Why women matter, the value that they add to organisations and the economy and why promoting women is better for all of us – male and female is what this talk is about.
