Biography:

Prolific author John Naisbitt enjoys the rare honour amongst authors of being both popular and critically acclaimed. Naisbitt's books Global Paradox, Reinventing the Corporation and the Megatrends series have proven influential internationally amongst statesmen and corporate leaders.

Forty years corporate experience with IBM and Kodak Eastman as an executive and studies in political science at Utah, Cornell and Harvard equipped Naisbitt with the skills needed to become a phenomenally successful advisor and clairvoyant to a generation of international leaders.

Currently the Distinguished International Fellow at the Malaysian Institute of Strategic and International Studies, Naisbitt has been honoured both by academic institutions and state governments globally. A member of the faculty at Nanjing University, China, he has also been the visiting fellow at Harvard and Moscow State Universities. Naisbitt's next book, High Tech/High Touch, will be published in 1999.
