    In addition to radical technologies, he explores the power of purpose, the impact of dreams, exponentiality, the customer of the future, the combinatorial impact, and more.

    This exciting multimedia keynote can also be delivered as an interactive workshop, frunning from two hours to a full day, to ensure maximum delegate participation, and to make the forces shaping the future relevant to your particular industry.

  • Destruction Workshop

    What would happen if your business was destroyed overnight • but you had the funds and ability to rebuild it from the ground up?

    Would you rebuild exactly as it is today? Very, very few leaders would answer "yes" to that question. Instead, almost all of us would create a different kind of company with different operating procedures and a different DNA. Saw and remove the friction that slows down so many enterprises.

    But • surely you can do that without destroying your existing business? This powerful workshop, ideally run as a half-or full-day session, challenges executive teams to question their business of today and to define how they could build an ideal "business of tomorrow." And then asks the questions: why not do it now? And how?

  • Thriving Inside the Perfect Storm

    The world is turbulent and confusing. From wars in the Middle East and Europe to radical technologies and new competitors, the ground beneath our feet is constantly shifting. It has never been more difficult to plan the future of your business.

    For more than 30 years, Futureworld has helped hundreds of companies around the world understand the future and thus design and create their ideal future. This powerful multimedia keynote explores the turbulence and identifies the key responses that will enable you to thrive inside the Perfect Storm.
