"Brexit, Trade Wars, and Social Unrest: Understanding the New Economic Reality

Our guest speaker, Professor Gayle Allard, will speak about the many signs which point to a slowdown in the global economy that will make the 21st century very different from the 20th. What will this new world look like, and what are the challenges for business? Gayle Allard will present the backdrop to this changing growth profile and engage the audience in a reflection on how businesses can best respond.

Gayle Allard, Professor at IE, teaches Economic Environment and Country Analysis. A Native of California, she has spent most of her adult life working in Europe, especially in Spain. Professor Allard holds a PhD in Economics from University of California at Davis. Her research is focused on labor markets and development issues in a world that has been radically changed by the financial crisis. She is very visible in the international media, writing articles as well as being interviewed by the leading international press, radio and television on global economic issues. She has worked as both an economic researcher and analyst for prestigious institutions such as JP Morgan and The Economist Intelligence Unit.

The presentation will be followed by a networking drink with our alumni.
