41 Global Thought Leaders Provide Their Views On Globalization's Next Phase, Leading Young, Digital Talents And Success In Turbulent Markets


NEW YORK, MOSCOW, LONDON, BEIJING, DELHI, JOROINEN: Today, 41 global thought leaders are letting us know their personal views on the next phase of globalization, the increasingly hot talent wars and growth. Executives, business school professors and politicians have given their time to this non-profit project with a simple goal: to generate and accelerate discussion about economic growth and new leadership needed to get the best out of a global pool of top talent. Video interviews from around the world were recorded over the last few weeks. This is as current as it gets.  


³It has been an honor to receive such valuable insight from top Academic, Business and Political leaders, as well as the Digital Cowboys themselves. My dream was to facilitate some new thinking and knowledge-sharing. Our whole economic system is currently living in the eye of a hurricane. Growth, modern leadership and regaining trust are the only way out,² says Pekka A. Viljakainen, facilitator of the NO FEAR project.


All the video interviews are freely available on YouTube and there is a free, global discussion forum for these topics at
