Global Trade Symposium will discuss the future of global competition and what it means for businesses and organizations.
Who: “Competitors are emerging from more countries,” explains Camille Schuster, Professor of Marketing for California State University San Marcos. “Compliance issues are stressing IT capabilities. Experts are saying companies need to engage in collaboration. With so much change most companies have all they can do to react to the marketing challenges. Thus, I think it would benefit us all to spend a morning at CSUSM to consider the future – the trends, the new pressure points, the new opportunities, the coming challenges – and engage in a discussion of how to prepare to ride the waves of change.”
Thomas P.M. Barnett, is the New York Times-bestselling author of “The Pentagon’s New Map, Blueprint for Action” and “Great Powers: America and the World after Bush”.

He is in high demand within government circles as a forecaster of global conflict and an expert of military transformation, as well as within corporate circles as a management consultant and conference presenter on issues relating to international security and economic globalization. Barnett will speak on 2025: A Future Worth Creating.
