Change doesn’t care whether you like it or not – it does not need your permission.

We constantly upgrade, exchange and replace our software because we know that rusty circuitry, limited bandwidth and old technology won’t suffice in the future. Why then, are we so reluctant to apply the same upgrades and changes to our thinking? The rapid pace of change in every industry means that we need to constantly be upgrading our personal, organisational and leadership software.

There is only one way to make these upgrades, and it is to understand how oncoming trends are likely to affect your organization, so you can act swiftly whenever the next tidal wave of information crashes on your shores. How would your company be different if your staff was inspired by change, rather than paralysed and fearful of it? Or if your leaders could raise performance levels to meet the oncoming generations, to do more with less, and to innovate their way into the future? Or better still, if you knew which trends were impacting your industry today and how to favourably position your thinking for the future?

Speaker Anders Sorman-Nilsson is a reformed lawyer, and he is the founder and creative director of the research company, Thinque. His unique global perspectives have been helping leaders, teams, and business owners all over the world to make sense of and harness disruptive trends in innovations, generations and communications. His misfit insights have recently been manifested in his book Thinque Funky: Upgrade Your Thinking and amplified by endorsements via Wired (UK), AFR Boss Magazine, and Monocle. Global thought leader since 2015, speaker Anders Sorman-Nilsson is an active member of TEDGlobal and has delivered keynotes regularly in America and Australia specifically.

Advising clients like Apple, MTV and Johnson & Johnson  on ‘next practice’, Anders’ future thinking provides clear GPS directions for teams, businesses and leaders seeking to navigate a constantly shifting business landscape, and successfully enter a new decade of thinking. As a speaker Anders Sorman-Nilsson is full of energy, informative and engaging. He always customizes and updates his presentations and content to the specific event and audience to ensure that they get the best possible benefits.

2nd Renaissance

If digital disruption was the dress rehearsal for your business model’s transformation, COVID19 became the burning platform. By now, we know that this virus has wreaked havoc on lives and livelihoods. None of us, professional, essential worker or otherwise, has been immune to either type of future shock.

But what does the world beyond the pandemic look like? And how do we as humans prepare ourselves for it?

Will we be going back to the status quo after lockdowns ease, or will we be forever transformed? What will we value, and how will we be spending our disposable income? What technologies are here to stay? Will we be migrating back into cities for work, or stay at home? Will the physical and virtual continue to blend? Will frugality be the new norm? What consumer behaviour will shape the commerce of tomorrow?

Digital adaptation and human transformation.

How do you design frictionless customer experiences where customers can seamlessly navigate between digital and analogue touchpoints?

This is the main question Anders explores in this thought-provoking keynote. Emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality and the Internet of Things are enabling more and more brands to become truly ’seamless’.

This presentation will provide you with fascinating case studies and best practices from smart brands that understand how intelligent technologies can amplify customer service, create compelling customer experiences, remove friction and transform our lives.

How to win the digital minds and analogue hearts of tomorrow’s customers.

As some organisations careen recklessly into the digital future and others are left behind by remaining steeped in the ways of old, thought leaders are coming to realise there is an important middle ground. Most often that’s where your customers and clients want you to be, the place where digital and analogue converge – the ‘digilogue’. In the digilogue it is understood that digital satisfies a customer’s mind while analogue soothes the heart.


  • An understanding of the parts of your business that simply cannot be allowed to go digital.
  • An intimate knowledge of the customer experience, of the touch points that thrill them, that speak to their hearts and not their heads.
  • An understanding of how your organisation tells its story to its public.
  • A recognition of the artisanal skill, or customer service, that keeps customers coming back.

Every business must know where its middle ground lies, where the old-school artisan meets the efficiency and power of the future. This customised presentation will help your

Waves of change


Waves of change are rolling towards us and you’d better be prepared. But how do you spot the waves, or identify what’s going on in the market? How do you sense the direction of the currents, or establish what it means for your business? And how do you best position yourself so you’re not washed away, or choose a market position and ride the wave?


  • Digital Disruption – managing the tension between the analogue and digital touch points
  • Media Madness – realising that every company must think like a media company
  • Data Driven Dominance – working out how to turn data into competitive knowledge


  • Which new markets you should target, and how to identify and engage them
  • How to step back and deconstruct your own business model to identify new, non-traditional partnerships
  • How to sort through the data storm to turn customer insight into intelligent and strategic business assets
  • How to build innovation strategy that disrupts your competitors
