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.
The Seafarers Members Lounge & Screening Room combines presentation and working zones with inspiring harbour views and relaxed breakout spaces

As we head towards the end of 2017, it’s an important time to pause and look ahead. As Alibaba founder Jack Ma shared at Davos earlier this year, core to their success has been looking decades ahead – while consciously disregarding what can be achieved within a year.
At the final 2017 CEO Futurelab we’ll take a deeper dive into how leaders around the world are dealing with information overload – from PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi’s use of inductive thinking to “zoom” above the noise, to Japanese AI expert Noriko Arai’s refocusing from knowledge to meaning.
We’ll also explore a new Futurevision framework for mapping trends across a wide range of areas including Education, Energy, Finance, Food & Beverage, Media, Retail, Social, Technology, Tourism and Transport.
