Keynote Topics

NOBELIZATION – The future of business

The dawning of a New Moral Age where profit is not the only metric is undermining the foundations of business. ESG, Agility, purpose-led business and the blue, green and circular economy will all be crucial. The future is not globalization but nobleization, and it demands bold vision inspired by purpose, articulated authentically, executed consistently and translated effectively into sustainable, generative momentum. 

From re-booting digital transformation to re-calibrating value, re-imagining competition to re-defining innovation companies must create holistic and dynamic sustainable transformation strategies, which are resistant to prolonged uncertainty and encompass not just technology and digitalisation but cultural resilience and depth.

Age of Undiscovery

The future has got stuck in the past, but old certainties are crumbling and what replaces them won’t be determined by technology

Taking the Red Pill

Most data isn’t new and it’s used to sell us stuff. Covid-19 exposed how little we really know, and the opportunity for us to change that.

The Global Syndemic

A synergy of co-occurring epidemics in economics, health, ecology and technology means our global system is about to stall

Invent Horizon

The global economy was a great start up but it won’t scale, so innovation has to be jettisoned in favour of invention.

The New Moral Age

Purpose, eligibility, equity and business value is being redefined by zero-tolerance New Crusaders for our New Moral Age

The Ashes & The Flame

A New Value Nexus, causative leadership, ESG and the Great P.I.V.O.T is about to make legacy business culture and leadership obsolete.

The F-Word

FREE is a four-letter word abused by the global Suggestion Economy destroying our collective understanding of value and values.

The WHealth Ecosystem

Food, health and finance are market failures unfit for the New Moral Age, Caveat Venditor will create a net-new WHealth ecosystem.
