CTL – ALT- DEL

The Digital Revolution has already changed the way we work and communicate with our clients, but the future of the workplace has faced further challenges with the impact of COVID-19.

In this presentation James Poulter looks at how you can continue to build a culture of innovation and what will need to change in order for companies to evolve to the new ways of working. Using some real-life examples from his time at Lego, Edelman and Ogilvy, James looks at what new controls (CTL) will need to be in place to allow a return to work. What will need to be altered (ALT) to allow your team to innovate, work together and still maybe work from home with a new work/life balance – and what will need to deleted (DEL) from previous ways of working. There is no choice now to innovate – innovate is essential to survive.
