A two-time World Economic Forum Global Leader for Tomorrow, Pippa is an internationally regarded financial authority and trend spotter who takes on economics through a unique holistic lens, showing companies and individuals how they can extract valuable insights and economic implications by tapping into subtle signals strewn throughout our daily lives. A former advisor to the US President, British Prime Minister, and to the National Economic Council, Dr. Malmgren shows audiences the human side of economics by demonstrating how everyday details ranging from hemlines to cereal boxes tie into the larger financial picture.

Her timely and critically acclaimed 2020 release, “The Infinite Leader: Balancing the Demands of Modern Business Leadership”, Pippa and her co-author argue that the spectacular leadership failures that we have witnessed in recent history, stretching across business, community life and politics, can be explained by a lack of balance.

Dr. Malmgren encourages us to not get caught up in the headlines and talking points of financial experts, but rather to observe and analyze what we actually see happening around us, because too often people freeze their plans due to doom-and-gloom predictions, ironically bringing on the economic woes that were forecasted. Dr. Malmgren observes, “Instead of looking to Washington or London or Brussels for the answer, the answer is in your own assessment of what you are capable of in the circumstances that present themselves.”
