Concepción Olavarrieta, Chair of the Mexican Node of The Millennium Project organized two Future Work/Technology 2050 Workshops: one in Monterrey in the same conference room for the RIBER meeting a few weeks ago sponsored by TecMilenio University and the other workshop in Toluca sponsored by the Institute of Public Administration of the State of Mexico and Colegio Mexiquense. Two former MP Tele-Interns from Technologico de Monterrey participated in the first workshop.
The visit began with a fabulous lunch produced by Concepción at her home with some of the authors of the forthcoming Mexico 2050 – a chapter each on the 15 Global Challenges relative to the future of Mexico. The visit ended with another fabulous dinner at Concepción’s home with the Director of EGADE Business School Mexico, Tecnologico de Monterrey; and the Associate Vice President, Government Relations of Tecnologico de Monterrey. EGADE is considered the leading business school of Latin America. As a result of this dinner, we agreed in principle to hold the next MPPC Meeting in Mexico City in October or November – details to be worked out soon so you can plan ahead. Thank you Jose Cordeiro (Chair MP Venezuela Node and Pres. of RIBER) for initiating this conversation and to Concepción for making in concreate. So, we are happy to meet in Mexico.
