He recently jousted with James Carville and Ben Stein, and Successful Meetings Magazine named him one of the “21 Top Speakers for the 21st Century.” His editorials in the Wall Street Journal and commentaries on PBS correctly forecast the 2001 slowdown in the U.S., the 2008 pop in commodity prices, and the downgrade of the U.S. debt rating. The New York Times has turned to him to decipher terrorist threats and the job market. BusinessWeek raved about his book Market Shock, which warned of the quicksand facing the stock market. Buchholz entertains his audiences and shows them how to thrive in a challenging economy, while gearing up for future prosperity.

Rush: Why You Need and Love the Rat Race
Todd Buchholz, author of the classic New Ideas from Dead Economists and New Ideas from Dead Ceos, reveals why we need competition to keep us going and going strong. Weaving in everything from neuroeconomics to evolutionary biology to renaissance art to General Motors, Buchholz will convince you that the race to compete has not only made us taller and smarter, it’s what we love and need. In his provocative presentation, Buchholz explains why laid-back firms get entangled in their own red-tape and why contented ceos end up driving their employees to bankruptcy court. While Buchholz argues that businesses need internal competition, he shows how to inspire creative competition, rather than a shark-infested culture. This is a cutting edge presentation that defies and shreds conventional wisdom.
