1 – 2 August 2017 Future Trends and Strategic Thinking for Board Directors, London – UK


1-2 AUGUST 2017


We live at a remarkable time, when all the forces of change are combining to create a turning point in history. A time where entire industries rise and fall, society shifts, and new rules for success and failure are being written.

In times of turbulent change, individuals and organizations alike need new strategies and new skills for dealing with what the future holds.

By looking beyond the next horizon for trends relating to our industry and the world around us, by tracking the forces that are shaping the future, we can make more sense of tomorrow’s world.  By understanding the nature of disruptive change, we can understand where to focus and how best to respond to this change.

Understanding future trends is essential to develop your strategic thinking.

This 2 day interactive workshop will cover:

Day 1 – A Changing World

We will explore how and why the world is changing and the subsequent impact on sectors, industries and businesses. To ‘think like Futurists’ we will identify and understand the five key disruptors behind the change being experienced.

Day 2 – Futurefit

The Changing World will provide a contextual backdrop to explore relevant strategic responses and help participants understand the wide ranging implications of the disruption taking place. The day will focus on understanding the full leadership and strategic organizational implications of the global context of disruption and developing models, frameworks and ideas in order to be ‘futurefit’ and to meet the undoubted challenges of tomorrow.

The workshop outline will include:

  • The context and the major disruptive drivers bringing about change
  • Understanding how things are changing and why they are changing
  • A framework to ‘think like a futurist’
  • Identifying the strategic impact on different business sectors as a result of the disruptive change drivers
  • Exploring an appropriate leadership model robust enough to sustain organizational growth in a disruptive context
  • What does it mean to be “futurefit” and how do we build such an organization
  • Adaptive intelligence and how to develop it
  • The internal and external challenges of ‘next generation’ thinking and behavior
  • What it means to lead in a Changing World

His research has clearly identified the key-defining factor for a successful leader in the 21st century is the ability to learn, grow and be adaptable. He believes that leaders need to have access to new frameworks and thinking in order to successfully lead into the future.

The greatest threat for most leaders right now is not the turbulence in their marketplaces and industries, but rather applying yesterday’s logic to tomorrow’s world. The global context, complexity and connectedness present entirely new challenges for contemporary leaders.
