Bike rides for the visually impaired and blind.

In a very interesting initiative that began last January, a group of three non governmental organizations from Mexico City are organizing bike rides for the blind and visually impaired. The rides are guided by volunteers on tandem bikes, and are offered on Sunday mornings, when a few streets in the historical center of the city are closed for pedestrians and human powered vehicles. What does this do for these people? More than you would think.

ExpoManagement 2009 - Futurist Thomas Frey

Speaker lineup for this week’s ExpoManagement 2009 Summit in Mexico City

On November 19th Futurist Thomas Frey will take the stage with eight other global visionaries to help leading business executives in Mexico think through the challenges that lie ahead as businesses struggle to regain their footing in today’s turbulent economy.
Louisville, Colorado (PRWEB) November 16, 2009 — On November 19th Futurist Thomas Frey will take the stage with eight other global visionaries to help leading business executives in Mexico think through the challenges that lie ahead as businesses struggle to regain their footing in today’s turbulent economy.
Other leading thinkers who will be joining Frey include former CEO of General Electric, Jack Welch; Prime Minister of Spain, Felipe González Márquez; Nobel Prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz; Former President of Colombia, Andrés Pastrana; Nobel Peace Prize winner Mohammad Yunus; renowned management expert and director of the Woodside Institute, Gary Hamel; Professor of Marketing and Hallman Fellow of Electronic Business at the University of Michigan, Venkat Ramaswamy; and Director of the Center for Environmental Law and Policy at Yale University, Daniel Esty.
“We are witnessing an unparalleled number of systems collapsing around the world as national governments struggle to adapt to the emerging global economy,” says Frey. “Most of today’s fixes will be very short lived as we move toward a world governed by global systems. We are living in the great age of experimentation as we enter into unprecedented new territory and attempt to write the rules for global business, global societies, and global governance.”
Frey has been a highly sought after speaker and frequent presenter at global conferences where he offers his insightful predictions of the future. Notable conferences in the past have included the 2008 Leaders in Dubai where he was featured with Rudy Giulliani, former World Bank President James Wolfensohn, and Tom Peters; 2009 OPTI Foundation in Madrid; 2007 Times of India “Future of Business” tour; 2007 Global Asset conference in Bahrain; and many more. The ExpoManagement event will take place in Mexico City November 18-19, 2009 before an anticipated crowd of 4,000 global business leaders. The event is being produced by HSM and is being sponsored by Ford Motor Company, PriceWaterhouseCooper, MetLife, and Motorola.
