Deloitte offers insights into issues shaping the global business agenda


In a constantly shifting business environment, the Global Shift podcast series brings unique perspectives to complex and interconnected issues, guiding business leaders into the future.

New York — The world is being reset, creating opportunities and challenges for governments, businesses, and communities. A number of key trends are emerging to shape and redefine the business world, and businesses everywhere are looking for new ways of realizing long-term sustainable growth.

Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu (DTT) Global Shift series—a quarterly podcast series launched today—will bring together top leaders from DTT and its member firms (“Deloitte”) to explore the issues that are driving and shaping the global business agenda. Deloitte leaders will offer unique and forward-looking insights into the trends and issues that will have a significant impact on business growth in the next quarter and beyond.

Highlights from the inaugural edition of the Global Shift podcast series include:

* Sovereign debt crisis
While the economic recovery will bring about a decrease in sovereign debt, this will not be widespread, and, in the interim, the cost of capital will likely be affected. This podcast explores how government’s ability to manage debt will be one of the most crucial factors affecting the shape of global economic recovery.
* Cross-border investment and capital flows
Over time, the role of government in business will decline, yet government concerns regarding national security will continue to have an impact on cross-border investment. This podcast explores the cross-section of government, politics, and business, and the cross-border investment opportunities for those looking to capitalize on benefits of an emerging economic recovery.
* Public-private intersection: The “big shift” [live Jan. 25]
Looking beyond the economic crisis, a “big shift” is occurring, driven mainly by digital technology infrastructure and connectivity. This podcast will highlight the shifts, emerging new indicators for public policy developers, and how the public and private sectors can adapt in the wake of a new era of growth.
* Globalization of innovation [live Jan. 26]
A number of long-term innovation trends are emerging: a source shift from the West to the East; technology’s role in the collection, distribution, and use of innovations; and the emergence of large-scale innovation to address social challenges. This podcast will discuss these trends, and the need for innovation in financing to spur long-term innovation.
* Climate change and sustainability in the aftermath of COP15 [live Jan. 27]
Businesses must get ready for a year of climate change legislation that will have significant impact on business strategy, operations, financial statements, risk management, and compliance. This podcast will look at some of the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead for businesses in a post-Copenhagen world.
* Retention and talent strategies [live Jan. 28]
As the economic upturn begins to gain a foothold, companies will need to reassess their people retention strategies to facilitate and maximize growth opportunities. This podcast will explore effective talent considerations for business in this changing environment, as well as new approaches to retention strategies.
