Theresa May always takes a pause before speaking. I wonder if it's something she learnt from her father as he waited for the congregation to settle. At Davos, after that brief pause, she preached to the very citizens of nowhere she had castigated in her 2016 Tory Conference speech and she delivered a rebuke for past sins and a lesson of inclusion. The global elite couldn't carry on the way it had, taking all the cream and failing to play by fair rules, sharing proceeds and paying their dues. Theresa May took on the mantle of telling the privileged elites they needed to wake up and step up to their responsibilities at her very first international gathering when she attended the G20 in Hangzhou in September last year. Volatile politics was a wake-up call to business and political leaders she said back then and, at greater length, this morning in Davos.

The battle under way in the capital should trouble us all. Proponents call it innovation, but I say it’s an assault on the poor A battle broke out on Tuesday in one of the scruffier parts of north London. It didnt look much: a few dozen placard wavers outside Haringey civic centre, and a restive public heckling councillors as they debated big plans for their future. But this is a battle that concerns all of us. At its heart is a programme that is among the most audacious I’ve ever seen. Haringey wants to privatise huge swaths of public property: family homes, school buildings, its biggest library. All of it will be stuck in a private fund worth £2bn . It comes with huge risks. It will demolish precious social housing, turf out families and rip apart communities. It will hand democratic control to a massive private entity. The 20-year plan is “unprecedented”, agreed backbench councillors.

I still have no idea how I’m going to be able to get into the city, or how I will possibly be able to leave it in the wee hours on Saturday morning. But yesterday was busy enough without worrying about that just yet. After getting my press pass I had to head to the office for an interview of sorts before running straight back to D.C. for a rally. The late afternoon air was calm and still, and in the clear sky there was a hint of light marigold, like old-fashioned orange soda over ice.

The situation would have been quite different if Zarif's Saudi counterpart, or at least a representative of the Kingdom, was on the panel to hit back with the facts. The bottom line is Saudi Arabia needs to do more to call Tehran's bluffs at international events such as Davos. As for Iran, it needs to put its money where its mouth is and ensure its actions match its rhetoric, otherwise Zarif's comments will resemble nothing more than hot air that will quickly evaporate in the cold Davosian climate. *This blog was originally posted on Arab News . -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

"My favourite movie, 'Forrest Gump': you know, life?s tough, this is what I?ve learned, and that inspired me," Ma said at another session that delved into his love for Hollywood. "That is why when people call me crazy, stupid for the past 17 years... I told myself, Forrest Gump said go ahead. Never care about the other people." Ma's rags-to-riches history is atypical in Davos, where many attendees are top executives who rode a seemless track from exclusive schools to senior jobs at multinational companies. They have given rise to the caricature of "Davos Man", a rich, rootless tourist of international conference venues. Seventeen years ago, after an inspirational visit to the United States, Ma persuaded friends to back him with $60,000 to start an e-commerce firm called Alibaba. Now, the company is an Internet giant and Ma is among the topmost ranks of China's super-rich.

Music superstar Lady Gaga has been riding high on a new album and an American tour kicking off after the Super Bowl, but a few years ago, she was vying for a different title: Intern. In 2010, Lady Gaga applied for an internship with world renowned designer Philip Treacy after she had worked with him on a few of her stage costumes. Gaga, the musical powerhouse, clearly still saw a need to be the student, and business executives can learn from her example. Business leaders can benefit in a variety of ways by learning from their junior staff by what I like to call "Reverse Mentoring." "Reverse Mentoring" flips top-down mentoring on its head by pairing junior team members with more experienced staff. The "junior" team member might be a rookie just out of college or graduate school, but one who offers skill and perspective to get hired in the first place.
