Who wins the prize as most multi talented speaker?

We do have an amazing line-up of speakers this year. Some of them are just so multitalented you think they made their bios up! Just look at some of the talents of Joshua Cooper Ramo.

Joshua is the Senior Advisor to Goldman Sachs and a professor at Tsinghua University. His advisory work focuses on political, economic and business areas with a particular emphasis on China. He is the author of the widely discussed paper 'The Beijing Consensus', where he argues that constant, massive, sustained innovation is the core of the Chinese growth.

In his new report, “Brand China”, Ramo argues that China's national image, and the misalignment between China's image of itself and how it is viewed by the rest of the world, may be its greatest strategic threat. It argues that alongside its other reforms, China needs a 'fifth transition' if the trust and understanding necessary for the next stage of its development are to be achieved.

Formerly, Ramo was Editor at Large at Time Inc. He joined Time magazine in 1996, and went on to become the magazine’s youngest Assistant Managing Editor and Foreign Editor, overseeing Time’s international coverage. Ramo was also an international affairs analyst for CNN.

Joshua also holds two US national point-to-point air speed records and is an avid aerobatics pilot. He has described his dangerous hobby in the book: “No visible Horizon”.

And we know from previous years that he is an engaging and inspiring speaker as well! Don't miss him.
