The drivers of disruptive change in the world right now
We live in turbulent times – a moment in history when all the forces of change are combining to produce an era-changing period. The political, corporate, social and personal rules for success and failure are all being re-written.
To survive and thrive in these uncertain times, it is essential that your whole team have an understanding of the forces that are re-shaping your industry’s landscape.
The TIDES of Change programme focuses on five key disruptive forces that are going to change the way we live and work in the next decade. The five forces are: Technology, Institutional change, Demographics, the Environment and shifting Societal values. These are the T.I.D.E.S. of change.
A guaranteed paradigm shaker, this powerful presentation or workshop, overviews each of the trends, providing gripping examples, insightful case studies and powerful implications tailored for your business.
