  • Come explore the common sense, but very counter-intuitive and fascinating realm of demography. Let John Maketa bring you into the world of counting people. John is a thought leader who has immersed himself in years of demographic study. John is a high energy, nationally respected thought leader & pioneer in innovative leadership. John has a passion for demographics, workforce trends and is the Vice President of Corporate Development for Performance Assessment Network (PAN) where he leads initiatives designed to develop skills for next generation leaders.

    John Maketa’s new book “Leading with Vision” was released in the spring of 2017. John’s understanding of worldwide demographics, fertility, migration, aging, immigration and dying have enabled him to forecast societal, political, economic, cultural and commercial phenomena with uncanny accuracy. What nations are demographically doomed? How will the workforces change? What is the future of communications? How will our children’s children get their education? Will big data change marketing and branding forever? What is the fate of mass media? What countries and continents are demographically positioned to excel? Learn this and more from John Maketa’s presentation.
