For more than 20 years, Eric Noël has been helping multinationals, financial institutions, pension funds, governments and international organizations anticipate and plan for tomorrow’s markets and politico-economic challenges. In researching a new, interdependent and chaotic global environment, where politics, economics, finance, demographics, technologies, mother nature, and ideologies can cooperate or collide, he reframes long-term issues into clearly defined trends, scenarios, risks, opportunities and strategies.
A macro-change tracker, geo-economist and long-term thinking advocate, Eric has contributed to several foresight exercises in Canada, the US, Europe and Asia. Following presentations and assignments on Canada’s future in 2010, he continues sharing his work in the attempt to stimulate more long-term thinking and discussions within Canadian organizations. With his own financial contribution and the support of sponsors and donors, Eric initiated the Canada Towards 2030 Project, where experts and non-experts can meet and find interesting and novel ideas and sources.
Eric is SVP – North America, Oxford Analytica, a global analysis and advisory firm he joined in 1993.
He is also Executive Fellow, School of Public Policy, University of Calgary
