Your Future Ready Mindset


With change coming at us faster than ever, organisations need smart, ambitious, future facing people to accelerate them towards new
success in our technology-fuelled future. A recent study by Gartner found that 58% of the workforce need new skills simply to get their
existing jobs done, and 80% feel poorly prepared for the future. We can do better than this!

In his inspiring keynote talks and masterclasses, former Microsoft leader, Allister Frost, shares his positive outlook for the future and a practical framework to instil a future ready mindset for lifelong success. And, surprisingly, the key to winning tomorrow often lies in improving some blissfully low-tech, human skills like curiosity, open-mindedness, and the rediscovery of your sense of wonder in the magic of the possible.

Everything great stems from a clarity of purpose. Answer this: why are you here? What is it that really matters to you today and in your future? What positive change do you bring to the world? Be clear on your purpose and the rest will flow.

  • FOLLOW – What should I know more about?
  • REACT – Is this ‘thing’ worth pursuing?
  • OPEN MIND – How might this ‘thing’ be useful?
  • SURPRISE – Just how remarkable could this ‘thing’ really be?
  • TELL – How might we realise the full potential of this ‘thing’?


  • Smart ways to follow change and stay on top.
  • How to react so change becomes your BFF.
  • Tips to re-awaken the brilliance of your beginner’s mind.
  • Why zagging will outsmart all future technologies.
  • How to spark a cycle of positive change with colleagues.
