We will look at the impact of;

  • Exponential dynamics and technology and how it is really impacting us including some megatrends
  • Scenario analysis to survive & thrive -
    • 3-6 months ( oxygen mask/resourcefulness phase!),
    • 6-12 months (the resilience/reinvention phase), most relevant and likely to focus on.
    • 12 months+ ( transform or die!)
  • New opportunities, new industries, new business models to embrace to thrive.
  • The brain, intelligence and creativity – Our Final Frontier. What do our kids need.
