Professor Stephane Garelli, a world authority on competitiveness, has pioneered research in this field for 25 years. He is a Professor Emeritus at IMD (Institute of Management Development) Lausanne, where he has founded the World Competitiveness Centre, and at the University of Lausanne.
Professor Garelli is the author of numerous publications on competitiveness and global business, and he published his best-selling book “Top Class Competitors – How Nations, Firms and Individuals Succeed in the New World of Competitiveness” with Wiley. His latest book “Are you a Tiger, a Cat or a Dinosaur?” can be found on Amazon.
In presentations, Stephane explains that we also compete in mindsets, and examines the possible consequences if big advanced economies continue to recover while emerging nations are slowing down. His presentations are dynamic, fast-moving, to the point, business-like, forward and “so what?” oriented. He also tries to show that an economic presentation can have content without necessarily being boring.
He is an exciting speaker who combines content with an entertaining approach to complex issues supported by his trademark graphics. His presentations on competitiveness provoke companies and individuals to think “outside the box”, and to confront their strategies with recent market trends and new competitive pressures. As the world economy enters a new era of fragility characterized by weaker growth, financial, monetary and price instability; Stephane talks about how companies can win in this new world, how they can implement business models which are more resilient, more simple, and adapted to local markets.
