Leadership

Leadership in anxious times: How to innovate and future proof your organisation
When times of crises are forced upon us, how do we respond, adapt and lead for the better? This session covers the research insights from McCrindle’s COVID-19 reports as well as the megatrends impacting the future and how to innovate, respond and maximise the opportunity rather than hunker down. In this session, Mark will outline what organisations can do to prepare for change and succeed long-term. He will address the importance of communication, building resilient organisations, responding to disruption and how to lead with clarity and resolve.

Work Wellbeing: Leading thriving teams in rapidly changing times
Over the last few years wellbeing has risen to the top of the agenda. It is one of the key challenges and opportunities that our society faces. In any given week, we spend more than a third of our waking hours at work, so it is the place we most need to get wellbeing right. It is also a key priority for workers, with 83% saying it is up to the employer to facilitate wellbeing in the workplace. Based on the book Work Wellbeing: Leading thriving teams in rapidly changing times, this session will help leaders and organisations understand and navigate the future of work, intergenerational teams and why prioritising employee wellbeing is a non-negotiable for the future. Mark will provide a practical, data-driven and engaging guide to workplace wellbeing; equipping leaders, managers and employees with a thorough understanding of what work wellbeing is, why it’s important and how to achieve it.

Future trends

Changing times emerging trends: Innovating and thriving amidst transformative times
Only occasionally in history do massive demographic changes combine with huge social shifts, generational transitions and ongoing technological innovation, plus a global pandemic so that within the span of a few years society altogether alters. While such change impacts everyone and every organisation, those that will future proof their organisations understand the times, influence the trends and shape the future. In this session, Social Analyst Mark McCrindle will navigate the megatrends transforming Australia to deliver a snapshot of 2030. He will discuss the key implications of these changes on clients, employees and the broader community and how through collaboration, innovation and adaptation, we can thrive in these times of change.

The future of work: Understanding the trends to prepare for the future
COVID-19 ushered in the most transformative change to work that we have seen in a century. With the impacts extending deep into the workplace, this session will equip leaders and organisations with an understanding of what the future of work will look like. From remote working, changing travel arrangements, meetings and events, to training and motivating staff virtually, this session will help leaders and organisations understand and navigate the future of work to facilitate employee, organisational and societal wellbeing.

Generational change

Understanding and engaging with the ever-changing customer:
Organisational leaders are increasingly seeing the importance of business intelligence and social analysis in driving growth. But to increase sales and develop product innovations to attract younger generations, a deeper understanding of these new customers and their changing expectation is imperative. In this session, Mark will give an overview of the emerging generations – Millennials, Gen Z and Gen Alpha – and how they differ from their older counterparts. He will examine who they are and what defines them; what drives and motivates them; and how best to communicate with them in these rapidly changing times.

The new world of work and the emerging workforce:
The future of industry is shaped not just by the technological changes but also the sociological changes. Indeed what defines our 21st Century is the massive technological change which combined with the huge demographic change is reshaping the business landscape. Our world is experiencing the biggest generational change since the birth of the Post-war Baby Boomers. Increasingly Baby Boomers are downshifting, Generation Xers and Ys are the emerging managers, and the Gen Zeds are today’s new employees. Therefore it is critical to understand the attitudes, values and expectations of the diverse generations comprising today’s workforce. In this session, Mark will identify the HR implications of these new attitudes, values, and workplace priorities of today’s employees. He will highlight applications of this to effective employer branding, attraction and retention strategies, workplace communications and effective management styles.

Demographic insights

Now and towards 2030:
To engage with people and connect with communities, we need to understand the data and the demographics. Population analysis tells a fascinating story of Australia today and reveals clear trend lines. In this session, Mark uses the latest demographic data to give a snapshot of the changes, the trends, the challenges and the opportunities for your brand, organisation and sector. He will look at the emerging trends redefining Australia, from population forecasts, the new baby boom which is breaking all previous records, unprecedented growth of our major cities, to the rise of the regions. This session will deliver an analysis of the changes and future forecasts on what the decade ahead will hold.

Bringing data to life:
The emerging generations of business leaders are digital, visual, and global in outlook, and expect information to be presented in compelling ways. While the last few years have introduced big data to business, the challenge is interpreting the data and communicating the trends and insights effectively so that leaders can make strategic decisions. Just as “a picture tells a thousand words”, an infographic presents a large number of data points in an easily accessible visual format. As pioneers in this emerging data visualisation area, and as Australia’s leading research visualisation experts, Mark will explain how your organisation can interpret the key data and present the summarised insights in innovative and visually accessible ways.
