Guest Speaker - Matt Spaniol

Matthew graduated from SJU in 2001. He has Master's degrees in Public Administration from Venezuela and International Development from Denmark. Matthew has worked in finance, international relations and more recently as a futurist at the Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies.

The presentation will consist of two parts, Contradictions from Living Abroad and Global Megatrends. The first part, Contradictions, follows Matthew's footsteps and lessons from dedicating his 20's to travelling and living abroad inspired during his 3rd semester exchange program to Central America. Megatrends will take the point of departure in the forces that will continue to shape the world we live in and affect our decisions long into the future.
