The CEO Futurelab combines fresh insight with peer-level conversation to position your organisation ahead of critical shifts.
The world isn’t changing as fast as many believe. However leaders risk being too far removed from the changes happening all around them. As a result new competitors and disruptive strategies evolve in their blind spots.
The CEO Futurelab shifts this by providing Chief Executives with critical insight into the latest innovations – and more importantly, the new thinking behind the change. The format combines accelerated insight presentation with reflective peer group discussion.
FUTURELAB FOCUS March 2018: Reinventing Organisations
It used to be that the term not-for-profit signalled an organisation’s focus was on social good – people before profit. Corporations would set up foundations to be socially responsible and leaders would pledge to do more with the wealth they had acquired through less socially focused ways.
However as society realises that this division of intent is placing our planet and future at risk, a new generation of CEOs is redefining what it means to lead an organisation. From Jean Liu, CEO of the world’s most valuable startup, China’s Didi Chuxing to Keller Rinaudo, Zipline CEO – running the world’s largest drone delivery system in Africa – we explore the mindset of these Future Thinkers.
As a peer group event the CEO Futurelab then also provides the space and time to explore what this societal shift means at a personal level for the year ahead. Hearing how other CEOs are going about aligning their personal purpose with shareholder expectations.
