Rave Reviews About Mohamed El-Erian
In my thirteen years as an event producer, I have never received such positive feedback from a keynote speaker before. I was stopped in the hallways and networking events numerous times by attendees who had glowing remarks about Dr. El Erian’s presentation. One attendee stated that ‘it is rare that a speaker not only presents well, but presents quality content.' I can say with 100% confidence that this was a wise investment in our business, as he helped to build our reputation as a program with great content. Personally I also wish to thank Dr. El Erian for being friendly, flexible, hospitable and considerate to our team. He was gracious and kind, and a pleasure to meet.

Mohamed El-Erian discusses our current economic path, underpinned by central bank policy experimentation.  He points to ominous signposts all around us:  rising inequality, sluggish growth, political tensions, and volatile financial markets. He dissects continued pressures that warrant radically different monetary policy including youth employment, global wealthy inequality, market illiquidity, and the unsustainable map between financial risk-taking (high) and economic risk- taking (low). And then, thankfully, he outlines his vision for a renewed global economy, prosperity and financial stability.
