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: BEYOND DIGITAL (March 2019)
The digital revolution first began in 1969, with the origins of the microprocessor and internet. With each industrial revolution spanning approximately a century, 50 years on in 2019 we’ve now reached “peak digital” in this third industrial revolution (following on from previous revolutions driven by mechanisation then electrification).
Now as society evolves beyond the digital revolution into the fourth industrial revolution, this CEO Futurelab explores the impacts ahead.
As Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff was once advised by Tony Robbins, “There are always two businesses you’ve got to manage. There’s the business you’re in and the business you’re becoming.”
From artificial intelligence to mixed reality, the worlds of bits and atoms are merging. Requiring new ways of servicing customers and shifts in business models. While customer-centric strategies have been taken as a given by most organisations, with the increasing connectedness of operating environments this perspective is now beginning to prove too simplistic.
As a peer group event the CEO Futurelab also provides the space and time to explore what these shifts mean at a personal level for others. Hearing how other CEOs are going about evolving their organisations and adapting their leadership approach for this future beyond.
