Mark Spelman, Global Head of Strategy at Accenture, stopped by the Davos town library (our WEF headquarters) to talk about what he believes have been the key developing themes at this year’s meeting.
In this first video, Spelman talks about key growth trends and the reasons behind the sense of ‘cautious optimism’ at Davos 2011.
“If 2010 was really about stability in the global economy, I think 2011 is all about the pace of global recovery,” he says.
“Optimism here is to a certain extent trumping pessimism. But the key question is, what’s this optimism based on?”
In this next video, Spelman analyses the underlying mood of confidence at Davos and how to balance the focus on growth and innovation with cost and complexity.
