Thirst for Power: Energy, Water and Human Survival
ATI Clean Energy Co-Director Michael Webber
Although it is widely understood that energy and water are the world’s two most critical resources, their vital interconnections and vulnerabilities are less often recognized. This farsighted talk offers a new, holistic way of thinking about energy and water—a big picture approach that reveals the interdependence of the two resources, identifies the seriousness of the challenges, and lays out an optimistic approach with an array of solutions to ensure the continuing sustainability of both. Michael Webber is Deputy Director of the Energy Institute at The University of Texas at Austin, a Professor of Mechanical Engineering, and Co-Director of the Austin Technology Incubator's Clean Energy Incubator. He is the author of the recent book, Thirst for Power: Energy, Water and Human Survival. 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center, 1900 University Avenue, Room 203 Austin, TX 78705.

The Invisible Global Market: Marketing to the Other 86%
IC² Fellow Vijay Mahajan
More than 6 billion people live in developing countries where the GDP per capita is less than US $10,000. This 86% segment of the global market includes most of the rural population in the world, where religious and other festivals influence consumption, is young with low but rising literacy levels, leapfrogging in the use of technology, and witnessing an aspiring middle class with rising incomes and economic growth rates. However, most of the market is still unorganized and lacks infrastructure and media. Based on hundreds of interviews and market visits in dozens of developing countries, this talk by IC² Fellow and UT Austin Professor of Marketing Vijay Mahajan will discuss "rules of engagement" that make emerging markets tick, and how some companies are successfully developing and penetrating the 86% of the other global market. Prof. Mahajan is the author of the forthcoming book, Rise of Rural Consumers in Developing Countries: Harvesting 3 Billion Aspirations. 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center 1900 University Avenue, Room 203 Austin, TX 78705.
