Always a Winner: Finding Your Competitive Advantage in an Up and Down Economy
Business executives are grappling with the worst economic turbulence since the Great Depression. As a result, the demand for public speakers who can deliver quality economic forecasts is one of the few things going up in the marketplace.

Business professor Peter Navarro offers an innovative "two-for-one" special based on his recent book Always a Winner: Finding Your Competitive Advantage in an Up and Down Economy. Not only will Navarro deliver a comprehensive economic forecast and outlook for the current economy and beyond, he will also teach each member of the audience to become their own economic forecaster so that their company will never again be caught by surprise by an economic downturn.

The method of forecasting that Navarro teaches is a simple and intuitive one that requires no complicated mathematical models or formulas. Instead, the method, which he has developed teaching in his MBA classes and presented to enthusiastic corporate audiences, is based on no more than a daily reading of the financial press.

The theme of the speech is based on the old saying give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. In this case, the theme is give a company a forecast and you guide the company for a quarter; teach every company executive how to forecast, and you protect the company for a lifetime.

By teaching you how to conduct your own economic forecasts, Navarro will help you crash proof your company by allowing you to better anticipate movements and key turning points in the business cycle. If you or your company were surprised by the onset of the recent recession and now find that your company is faced with significant layoffs and stuck with a costly inventory overhang, a cash flow squeeze, or large uncollectible accounts receivable, Prof. Navarro's highly entertaining and educational speech may be perfect for your next meeting.

The Coming China Wars: Where They Will Be Fought and How They Can Be Won
This presentation analyzes the coming conflicts with China over energy, counterfeiting and piracy, currency manipulation, global pollution,drug smuggling, and factory floor.

The Well-Timed Strategy Based on the book by the same title which took five years to complete, Peter reveals how the best companies in the world strategically and tactically manage the business cycle. The research was helped by a large army of MBA students who gathered hundreds of case examples and thousands of data points. This speech contains a chock full of keen insights from some of the most sophisticated strategic minds in the world of business today.
