The Trump Impact on Democracy: The Reawakening of Activism & Participation
A Brave New and Improved World: 50 Years of Fighting For You
From consumer advocate to Presidential candidate, Nader has always had the everyday citizen’s interests in mind, and taken their protection to heart. He has tackled the tough issues over the years on our behalf and successfully addressed them to champion change, like taking on the auto industry and having seat belts put on the standard list of included items on every car, which have been saving lives – and car companies, ever since. Nader has also worked to improve environmental protections, even using the platform of his presidential campaign to speak out on our behalf, touting himself as a member of the Green Party.
In this presentation, Ralph takes listeners on his 50 year journey as a consumer advocate and insider and is able to create a big picture for the audience of how this country has changed and adapted over the years. He then reveals trends that affected business then, and how these cyclical trends will affect you in the future, as new protections are put in place and policies put into law.
The Tides are Turning: How Your Business will Stay Afloat in a Changing Climate
Finally, climate change is overwhelmingly accepted as truth. Not only does this mean that your grandchildren will have a place to live, but also that there will be initiatives and rules put into law that will directly affect the way you do business. With each new breaking technology, with each new law, with each new product or service, we experience a shift in society – in how individuals act, interact, and react. Over the past fifty years, Ralph Nader has witnessed and observed these societal shifts, and noticed how they have created gaps in the marketplace.
Any organization with foresight can take advantage of these gaps. Part of Nader’s expertise is his ability to provide insight into the huge opportunities they create, like jumping on the “go green” bandwagon which may cost a bit up front, but in the long run increases the positive image of a company, its market opportunities, and its profits. According to Nader, organizations can ignore, fight, or embrace these evolving and increasingly important gap issues, either at the benefit or detriment of the company, their industry and, ultimately, their consumers. In an enlightening presentation, Ralph uses his unique lens on business, government, and society – and the intersections of each – to offer a customized view of potential societal issues and marketplace gaps that, if addressed and pursued, will have a large impact on the future of business and society at large.
