  • A WORLD IN FLUX: GLOBAL TRENDS & CHALLENGES AND HOW TO MANAGE THEM

    Where is the world heading? What is happening to Globalisation? How is the information revolution affecting the business landscape? What are the looming flashpoints we need to be aware of? How can we best cope moving forward? In this keynote speech, best selling author and professor Noreena Hertz lays out what she sees as the key Global Trends of our times, identifies the challenges this means we face, and provides a series of insightful and counterintuitive steps we need to take if we are to successfully manage them.

  • HOW TO MAKE SMART DECISIONS IN A COMPLEX WORLD

    We make 10,000 decisions a day. 277 just about food. But whilst it doesn’t matter really if you choose a cappuccino over a latte, when it comes to high stakes decisions – at home or at work – the choices you make really do matter. Yet we think surprisingly little about how it is we come to decisions. Instead we typically repeat those decision-making strategies that have worked for us in the past. We turn to experts, trust our guts, run options by our colleagues, go with what just feels right. In this keynote speech, bestselling author and professor Noreena Hertz reveals why each of these strategies can lead us badly astray, especially in a fast changing world such as ours. She then lays out concrete and counterintuitive steps we all can take to become much smarter and wiser decision makers ourselves. Steps that include hiring a Challenger-in-Chief, becoming a Digitally-Attune Information-Hunter-Gatherer, encouraging Dissent and Difference and Tapping into your Organisation’s Wisdom Within.

  • TRUER FASTER: HOW TO SUCCEED IN THE SUPER-TRANSPARENT WORLD OF TWITTER, FACEBOOK AND WIKILEAKS

    We are living in a world in which anyone, anytime, anyplace can be a breaking news journalist. A world in which we all can be paparazzi and all be paparazzi’s prey. A world in which everyone can become a brand ambassador, but also one in which everyone can broadcast bad service and bad product experiences in a millisecond around the globe. It is a world that companies cannot effectively manage using old control and command models. Instead they need to understand and put in practice the three new guiding principles – the 3Cs: Collaboration, Cooperation and Communication. In this keynote speech, bestselling author and professor Noreena Hertz reveals how successful corporations use the 3Cs to their advantage and lays out how new technologies can be deployed to deliver competitive advantage. She also challenges her audience to think anew about what they can do differently, who they should join forces with, and how they can become truer, faster themselves so as to succeed in this super-transparent new world.

  • DOING BUSINESS IN THE POST FINANCIAL CRISIS ERA: HOW TO FRONT RUN REGULATION AND GAIN A COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

    In the wake of the Financial Crisis, capitalism is under the spotlight in a way it has not been up until now. But how seriously should business leaders take the rumblings of those on the ground? Are politicians likely to change the way they deal with corporations, or will it be business as usual? What role will social media and crowd-sourcing of information play in shaping how businesses operate? Are investors changing the way in which they value corporations? In this keynote speech, bestselling author and professor Noreena Hertz identifies the key socio-political forces that every business leader needs to monitor in order to be able to triumph in this new post financial crisis environment, as well as the concrete steps to take so as to be able to front run regulation and gain competitive advantage.

  • THE FIVE FORCES THAT ARE TRANSFORMING OUR WORLD

    From artificial intelligence to the continued march of populism, from Brexit to Trump what is the world going to look like in the next two to three years? What are the key challenges business leaders will face? How to overcome them, and what are the opportunities the next few years present?In this landmark keynote speech, Professor Noreena Hertz outlines the key forces – geopolitical, economic, societal, demographic and technological – that are transforming the world and should be on every business leader’s radar. Noreena then spells out in practical terms how, given this fast-moving landscape, to lead with agility, innovativeness and relevance.
