Gilding will discuss his new book, The Great Disruption. He argues that a coming global and economic crisis can pave the way for enormous positive change with business opportunities and risks, at a scale comparable to the industrial revolution.

One of those who has been warning me of [a coming crisis] for a long time is Paul Gilding. He has a name for this moment - when both Mother Nature and and Father Greed have hit the wall at once - "The Great Disruption." - Thomas Friedman
