To ensure you and your organization are prepared, join the Greater Houston Partnership on May 22 to get the latest global economic outlook from one of the foremost experts in the field, Dr. Stuart P.M. Mackintosh, Executive Director of the international think tank, Group of Thirty.

As part of his discussion about global economic trends, Dr. Mackintosh will cover topics including the rise of the dollar and negative spillovers, the ramifications of Brexit and Europe's recent push back against nationalism, risks in China and the ramifications of Japan's aging population.

In addition to the luncheon keynote, the event will feature a morning panel discussion among three executives who lead global institutions in Houston. The panel will be moderated by Bob Harvey, President and CEO of the Greater Houston Partnership, and includes:
  • Renu Khator, Chancellor and President, University of Houston

  • Manolo Sanchez, Chairman, BBVA Compass
