Demographics & the Current Political Landscape of Today: Prospects for the Democrats & the Republicans
In this presentation, John explores and evaluates the latest demographics of the ever-changing political landscape in America – heading into the future. He addresses and analyzes the latest voter trends and tendencies, as well as the evolving racial census of America’s voting population. John Zogby recognizes that the dynamics of the American voting public is undergoing tectonic changes.
Today’s voters are younger, less white, and more informed. He delves into the prospects for the political parties and independents of the future, and explains that any political party wishing to successfully relate to this new kaleidoscope of constituents, must have a strategy in place to answer new questions and concerns held by a growing and increasingly diverse mosaic of Americans. By the end of this presentation, Zogby will leave audiences with a plan, and the poise, to recognize evolving political dynamics and expectations, as well as the awareness of how to address these demands to succeed, on either side of the aisle.
The New American Consumer: Resourceful & Savvy
The US economy is based on consumer spending. But those days are over - at least for a generation. The drive to reduce spending started long before the Great Recession, which only accelerated the trend begun in the late 1990s. Between 10 million and 12 million financially successful Americans are making a conscious decision to cool the "desire to acquire." These tech-savvy consumers prefer "being connected" over material wealth and care about value over glitz. They want the steak, not the sizzle. Since they only have only so much to spend, they want to spend it wisely. In increasing numbers, they want to be part of what is right, not just what is popular - including being on the right side of the environmental and human rights equation. Speaker John Zogby will help you understand how this new consumer trend will impact you in the future and how can you turn this trend to your advantage.
America’s First Globals: Understanding, Managing & Unleashing the Potential of Our Millennial Generation
In the most comprehensive research yet, speaker John Zogby explores America's "First Globals" - Americans born between 1979 and 1993 who are networked worldwide; who monitor global sports, fashion, and music; who, out of any age group, are the least likely to think American culture is superior to any other culture; and who are most reluctant to go to war against people who listen to their music and dress like them. They are having a huge impact on the workplace, on NGOs, on home ownership and housing, and on the meaning of community. "America's First Globals are exciting to watch, but I am worried about a growing subset who are just losing hope," Zogby says. "Are we wasting significant human capital? How do we salvage the leaders of our next economy and planet?" he asks. The answers he provides in this keynote are both poignant and insightful.
To See Ourselves as Others See Us: Global Attitudes Toward the US & American Values
The "splendid isolation" Americans enjoyed has now vanished due to communications technologies and savvy citizens who watch the BBC, Al Jazeera, CNN, and even Russia Today. But just as we have become more interested in what lies beyond our borders, the rest of the world is now watching us more closely than ever.
"An Arab diplomat once told me that 'we love America, it's the United States we have a problem with'," speaker John Zogby says. "Everywhere we see this disconnect between citizens all over the world who cherish the universal values that America stands for, while challenging the nation's self-interests." Since 1997, Zogby has polled people across the globe and has acquired a rare look into their hearts and minds. In this session, he shares how the world sees the US, particularly as other major countries such as China, Russia, India, Brazil, and Turkey assert their power.
