Keiretsu Forum is looking forward to having Patrick Schwerdtfeger as our guest speaker at the May 1st Angel Capital Expo.  Patrick is an author and global business speaker, having spoken at hundreds of events in dozens of countries around the world. Patrick has spoken at many events in North America and has also studied the domestic demographics extensively. The result is a unique understanding of the business landscape including the generations driving consumer spending (the Baby Boomers and the Millennial Generation) and also the competitive entrepreneurial mindset that defines American business culture. “We are shifting from a W-2 economy to a 1099 economy” and that increasing self-reliance is fueling a do-it-yourself culture within our economy. On May 1st, Patrick will discuss “The Predictive Potential of Global Demographics.” Watch Patrick’s Tedx Talk
