Presentation title: Strategic Harmony: Response to a Global Wake-Up Call

The lecture is based on my new book „Empower Us: Form Crisis to Strategic Harmony“, Kitsap Publishing, 2020 (coauthor Ira Kaufman). The book is a deep dive into fixing and transforming the broken world. It is dedicated to those who want to reinvent the world, propel The New Harmony, driven by universal values and a higher ethical compass, digital technologies, and sustainable business practices. It is for those who want to transform a business or an organization; to catalyze change; or to disrupt outdated, unresponsive policies in healthcare, ecology, education, government, economics, or other institutions. The short lecture will focus on the key ideas, challenges and application of the Strategic Harmony model in health and tourism industries.
