Future Trends & Disruptive Change
Leading in a Changing World
Leading Difference Differently
The Future of … (customised for
different industries and audiences)

 
Leading Difference Differently
 
The work that our team at TomorrowToday does on disruptive forces shaping the future of work has focused our attention on the issue of diversity. This is more than a compliance issue, or a social good or something that must be grudgingly done - it is becoming the source of strategic competitive advantage for companies and organisations that get it right. "Getting it right" means a significant mindset shift around diversity as we learn how to lead difference differently.
 

Build the Future Now - How to keep and engage your customers in a world of digital integration.
 
The new digital companies that have become household brands have tapped into some core values of the digital age. Learn how every company can – and must – do the same in order to be successful in the future.  
 
The companies that are shaping the digital world in which we now live are growing at unprecedented rates and have an extraordinary influence on our lives and work. Apple, Samsung, Google, Facebook, Uber, PayPal, Airbnb, Amazon, Netflix and many others are integrating themselves into our lives, and at the same time changing our expectations of how the world around us should work.
 
To be successful and get ahead of your competitors, you need to integrate these new expectations into your customer – and staff – experiences. This is not just about finding ways to disrupt your industry, as these companies have all done, but rather focusing on what we can learn from way these digital world companies have connected with the values of this new era. These include such key factors as personalisation, ease of use, constant upgrading, simplification, always on, artificial intelligence, collaboration and the sharing economy, gamification and new approaches to trust based on transparency.
 
Participants will leave the session with a better understanding of the forces that are shaping the world we live in, a checklist of the factors that will make their business successful and a clear framework for evaluating and changing what they do to be successful in a digital, omnichannel world. It goes well beyond the now-commonplace conference question of “what will be the Uber of your industry” and looks at the underlying driving causes of success and failure of companies in the digital world we now live in.
 
This session will provide a framework for you and your team to analyse your customer experience, your staff experience and your strategy, to ensure it matches the emerging DNA of the digital age. You’ll leave with a deeper understanding of what it will take to be successful, with carefully chosen examples and case studies to motivate you, and a clear picture of what you can do to contribute to this. Insightful, eye-opening and laced with humour, this session will forever change the way you and your team see the future.

 
8 Skills for the Future of Work
8 essential skills vital to ensuring personal adaptability in a changing world.
 
How best does one ensure that you are prepared for the ‘new world of work’? In a context of exponential change, what will it take to be ‘future-fit’? These are important questions for everyone to be asking – wherever it is you find yourself along your career path.
 
This keynote / workshop, based on our global experience and research, identifies and explores 8 essential skills vital to ensuring personal adaptability in a changing world.
 
To be successful and relevant in tomorrow’s world will demand that both individuals and organisations are adaptable. The need to be adaptable goes beyond being a strategic imperative – it is something that needs to be cultivated at a ‘DNA’ level. It necessitates being a learner and this is the focus of this new TomorrowToday presentation / workshop: what needs to be learnt today in order to develop an adaptive DNA that will make thriving tomorrow possible? The what (it is), why (it is important) and how (to do it) of each of the eight skills will be explained. Participants will leave with a clear idea as to what the future will demand of them and how to prepare for that future today.
 
The eight future-fit skills our research has identified are:
Horizon scanning and what if thinking - How to think like a Futurist and plan for different future scenarios
Adaptive Intelligence, sense-making and complex problem solving - Knowing what to do when no one knows what to do
Personal Intelligence - Being your best you
Diversity and Social Intelligence - Successfully build relationships and navigate social structures
Creativity and Intuition - Expand your thinking
Curiosity and Storytelling - Why asking questions and sharing stories are critical and how to be better at both
Initiative and entrepreneurship - Succeeding in the new economy
Being tech savvy - The things you need to know to keep up with the technology powering the future of work
