Global System Trends and Risks

I apply systems thinking.

I analyze Global System processes and structures, Global Order and the shifts of change.

I assess global trend developments and risks.

I provide an expertise on geopolitical and geoeconomic due diligence as well as systemic risks.

I organize and moderate expert workshops and webinars for public and private clients.

I have predicted the new Global System bipolarity

and coined the term Dragonbear (systemic coordination between China and Russia )
