Join us for an exciting discussion about the future of our society and economy! Jeremy Rifkin will serve as the keynote speaker at CEI’s 37th Annual Breakfast Meeting on March 10, 2015. Mr. Rifkin is the bestselling author of twenty books on the impact of scientific and technological changes on the economy, the workforce, society, and the Jeremy Rifkin environment. His books have been translated into more than thirty-five languages and are used in hundreds of universities, corporations, and government agencies around the world.


PLEASE NOTE: Mr. Rifkin is unable to attend the event in person due to obligations in Washington, DC, but will present live via HD video, and participate in a 20 minute question and answer session with the audience following his 40 minute talk.


In 2014 Mr. Rifkin published his latest book, The Zero Marginal Cost Society: The Internet of Things, the Collaborative Commons, and the Eclipse of Capitalism. In 2011, Jeremy Rifkin published the New York Times bestseller The Third Industrial Revolution. Mr. Rifkin’s vision of a sustainable, post carbon economic era has been endorsed by the European Union and the United Nations and embraced by world leaders including Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, President François Hollande of France, and Premier Li Keqiang of China. Mr. Rifkin is an advisor to the European Union and to heads of state around the world, and president of the Foundation on Economic Trends in Washington, DC.


CEI’s Annual Meeting attracts over 350 business, community and thought leaders, and offers outstanding networking opportunities. The event serves as an opportunity for CEI to highlight community economic development practices, share impact investing stories from the past year, recognize community leaders, and introduce compelling and thought-provoking conversations into the economic development space in Maine.
