What are the technologies set to change the workplace? We explore how existing jobs will be destroyed - and those that will be created. Why will this happen? And – importantly – how can we prepare ourselves for an exciting and very different Future of Work?
Here, we explore the big technologies and challenges facing our species. Artificial Intelligence, Biotechnology, Future of Work and Climate Change. What should audiences be aware of and how can they live harmoniously and productively in a dramatically changing world?
We hear so much about how machines are taking over the world. Is that really the case? How can we future-ready ourselves and, importantly, prepare our children for a world so different to the one we inhabit now?
The future is less predictable than it has ever been, because the COVID-19 pandemic has thrown up challenges in the connected worlds of health, politics, consumer needs and market uncertainty. There is opportunity, and we explore what this is and where it comes from.
Leaders of the future will need new skills and characteristics to propel them forward. That’s because organisations will look entirely different. In this keynote we explore new forms of organizational structure, why brute force analysis should be left to the machines and the human skills we need to develop as leaders and foster in others.

"You pushed the limits of some of our attendees’ minds with ideas that have since created conversation and debate – something which was a key part of the brief. He even visited one of projects before the event to gain some specific examples relevant to our audience."
