  • A futurephile’s guide to creating seamlessness for your brand and organization
  • Showcase how to think and design to avoid the top frictive mistakes of companies in demise

You and your leaders need a thinking strategy that enables you to stay on trend, to adapt with the times, and successfully navigate a constantly shifting business landscape.

Future Thinking

The world has changed and it's a little out of whack. Organisations and leaders are struggling to find their bearings, and many feel overwhelmed by the changes they are facing. Globally, tidal waves of new ideas and thought currents are smashing old school thinking to smitherines. You and your leaders need a thinking strategy that is as flexible as a GPS, and that enables you to stay on trend, to adapt with the times, and successfully navigate a constantly shifting business landscape.

Are your leaders tuned into, driving and manifesting the latest thinking from across the globe? Is your organisation on trend, or is it likely to be smashed by disruptive innovation? Are your teams able to cope with the changes they are tasked with, or are they still coming to grips with the last change roll-out? Is your salesforce still knocking on doors, making cold calls, and refusing to leverage their efforts in an age of sales innovation?

ATTENDEES WILL LEAVE WITH AN UNDERSTANDING OF HOW TO:

  1. Spot disruptive trends, feel the underlying currents of change, and position their ideas successfully
  2. Create future scenarios and future-proof your company based on their observations and thinking
  3. Successfully ride disruptive innovation, generation and communication trends

Digilogue

How to win the digital minds and analogue hearts of tomorrow's customers.

As some organisations careen recklessly into the digital future and others are left behind by remaining steeped in the ways of old, thought leaders are coming to realise there is an important middle ground. Most often that’s where your customers and clients want you to be, the place where digital and analogue converge - the ‘digilogue’. In the digilogue it is understood that digital satisfies a customer’s mind while analogue soothes the heart.

KNOWING WHERE THIS PLACE IS DEMANDS:

  1. An understanding of the parts of your business that simply cannot be allowed to go digital
  2. An intimate knowledge of the customer experience, of the touch points that thrill them, that speak to their hearts and not their heads
  3. An understanding of how your organisation tells its story to its public
  4. A recognition of the artisanal skill, or customer service, that keeps customers coming back

Every business must know where its middle ground lies, where the old-school artisan meets the efficiency and power of the future. This customised presentation will help your people find where that place is.

Don't throw the analogue baby out with the digital bathwater.

Change doesn't care whether you like it or not. It happens without your permission.

Waves of Change

GLOBAL TRENDS THAT WILL DISRUPT YOUR EXISTENCE.

Waves of change are rolling towards us and you’d better be prepared. But how do you spot the waves, or identify what’s going on in the market? How do you sense the direction of the currents, or establish what it means for your business? And how do you best position yourself so you’re not washed away, or choose a market position and ride the wave?

The WAVES OF CHANGE THREATENING EVERY BUSINESS ARE:

  1. Digital Disruption – managing the tension between the analogue and digital touch points
  2. Media Madness – realising that every company must think like a media company
  3. Data Driven Dominance – working out how to turn data into competitive knowledge

THIS KEYNOTE WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH THE FOLLOWING FORESIGHTS:

  • Which new markets you should target, and how to identify and engage them
  • How to step back and deconstruct your own business model to identify new, non-traditional partnerships
  • How to sort through the data storm to turn customer insight into intelligent and strategic business assets
  • How to build innovation strategy that disrupts your competitors

Anders did a superb job as the keynote speaker at the 2016 COLLOQUY Summit in Los Angeles. His presentation on the digital world and how it's changing the ways we engage with our customers was "spot on" and the feedback from attendees on his session was very positive. I especially enjoyed how he applied the evolution of his mother's business into his views on the future of customer relationships.

ANDERS ATTENDED OUR HR TEAM WORKSHOP TO ENGAGE THE TEAM IN DISRUPTIVE THINKING AND HOW WE CAN BE INNOVATIVE IN HR. IT WAS A FANTASTIC SESSION WHICH NOT ONLY GAVE THE TEAM INSIGHT INTO WHAT OTHER COMPANIES ARE DOING AND SOCIETAL TRENDS BUT ALSO SUPPORTED GIVING THEM PERMISSION TO EXPERIMENT AND TRY NEW WAYS OF DOING THINGS. THIS HAS ENERGISED THE TEAM'S DESIRE TO BECOMING TREND SETTERS RATHER THAN FOLLOWERS IN THE HR SPACE.
