    Digital/Business Transformation

    • The secret of business transformation is not to transform but to embrace our anthropological nature, focus on growing assets and to operate as a tribe. In this presentation you will learn about how we need to change our perspectives in respect of risk, experimentation and innovation in what is becoming a post-strategy world.

    The Future of Work

    • Hyper-uncertainty and volatility are resulting in tradition talent management approaches being no longer fit for purpose. Emerging technologies such as AI and robotics are changing the role roles will play in the workplace. In this presentation we will explore the drivers that are changing the nature of work, moving the power to the talent and heralding the end of the traditional career.

    The changing nature of;  Business models, Talent management, Leadership, Risk and Culture.

    • The transition from the industrial to the digital age is much more profound than simply a faster, smarter, more efficient factory. There are profound implications in respect of business models, leadership, talent management.  Our approach to risk and culture need to evolve in line with this post-industrial world. This presentation highlights the challenges as well as provides a way forward in what is an unknowable future.

    The impact of technological themes, such as: AI / Robotics, Cyber security, IoT, The Cloud, Blockchain and Biotech.

    • The technology industry was created many years ago when mankind first picked up a rock for the purposes of doing something. The exponential nature of technological growth is such that it is reshaping society. This presentation looks at the major technology themes and explores how they are currently effecting both organisations and individuals. Plus we will explore how these technologies will likely impact us in the near future.
