John Manzella Reviews

  • Great job team!
    MasterCorp - Apr 26 2021

  • It is always a pleasure to work with the AAE team, they are friendly and professional. I can trust them to help me pull of a great event.
    Calvin College - Feb 02 2021

  • John’s presentation at the New England Relocation Association conference was the sharpest and most insightful explanation of the current macro economy I’ve heard. He doesn’t just “talk the talk,” he thoughtfully has mastered the factors that have led to where we are today, and understands what must be done to initiate growth in the United States and world economy. Importantly, he can convey these complex ideas in a straight-forward, clear and concise manner — something few of his peers can do. John is engaging, likable and pensive. Several members of our association ecstatically declared how impressed they were with his presentation. He should be on CNBC and CNN every day.
    RE/MAX Partners - Oct 28 2018

  • John's presentation at the National Poultry and Food Distributors Association's Fall Meeting left me thirsting for more! His ability to connect the dots between seemingly dissimilar economic influences and explain how, in fact, they are all woven into the same global economic fabric was outstanding. His content was enhanced by delivery that was clear, concise and easily understood.
    Urner Barry - Oct 28 2018

  • “We have scheduled John to present to several of our clients. He provides useful, intelligent and insightful economic and policy information. And it’s delivered in a way that shows the impact to business and is understandable. Members have enjoyed John's material and have indicated that they would like to hear more. I encourage other organizations to schedule John to present at their meetings; your members will find value in the presentation.”

John Manzella Speaking Topics

  • New Realities, Critical Risks and Survival Strategies

    New realities and critical risks are severely impacting business. Hyper competition is forcing companies to pursue new markets and build more reliable supply chains, while smarter workers must deliver more complex solutions. But these efforts are impacted by worker shortages, immigration barriers, automation demands, and protectionism. This stimulating and insightful program forecasts economic growth, explores pressing labor issues, delves into Chinese challenges, exposes hurdles with Canada, Mexico, and Europe, reveals how globalization is evolving, and analyzes connections between middle class erosion and political shifts. Importantly, it provides strategies to reduce risks and prepare for what's ahead.

  • Economic Trends, Globalization and the Need to Improve American Capitalism

    Rising protectionism, populism and inequality, along with economic trends and Covid-19, are having a profound impact on the United States, globalization and American capitalism. Plus, skills deficits, immigration issues, and tensions with China are severely affecting industry. In addition, advances in automation and digitalization, and the need for lifelong learning are adding greater complexity. This thought-provoking program peers into the chain reactions of what’s unfolding, reveals the myths and realities of globalization, and examines the need to improve American capitalism so we don't lose it.

  • Will COVID-19 Kill Globalization? What Companies and Workers Need to Do

    COVID-19 and trade battles with China and other countries have reduced trade flows. In turn, many argue that globalization will soon be dead. Globalization isn’t dying, it’s evolving, and existing trends are accelerating. This thought provoking program provides analysis of protectionist trends, how digital technologies and automation are transforming globalization, strategies companies and workers can implement to mitigate risks and seize opportunities, what’s ahead for China trade and U.S. companies manufacturing there, and what companies should do to prepare for future threats or pandemics.

  • International Trade, New Realities and Ripple Effects

    Tensions with China and rising global protectionism are forcing companies to reassess trading relationships, investments, site selection decisions, backshoring options, and supply chain operations. Plus, issues causing friction and heightened levels of volatility are adding new risks. This engaging program analyzes the positions of President Joe Biden with a focus on international trade, China, USMCA, and Europe, provides insight on China’s strengths, weaknesses and practices, reveals connections between rising populism, automation and globalization, and offers strategies to better navigate the dangers ahead.

  • Economic Trends, Global Trade, Labor and What’s Ahead

    COVID-19 and volatility continue to impact U.S. and world growth, while complexities with the USMCA, Europe and China are creating new supply chain and investment risks. Combined with the energy revolution, new drivers of growth, and shifting demographics, these issues are shaping our future. What does this mean to you? This invaluable program examines trading relationships, reveals Chinese dangers, analyzes sectors, and explores critical issues involving labor, skills, automation, and immigration. Additionally, it offers survival strategies and provides insight on what's ahead.
