New Rules For A New World
The pandemic not only changed our way of life, it accelerated the arrival of a radical new future of work. While for many of us hybrid work is a new and unexpected challenge - it is just the start of a much bigger transformation set to reshape the nature of organizations themselves.
Whether it be engaging customers through digital channels or leveraging AI, algorithms, and automation to reinvent how we deliver value - we are likely to experience in the next decade, a century’s worth of change. Not every organization will make it, but those that do will never be the same again. And for leaders, now more than ever, it is a time to upgrade their capabilities, embrace new technologies, and reimagine what they do.
Mike Walsh's inspiring new keynote presentation will offer audiences an insight into the organizations and leaders that are successfully navigating this period of change, and how to create a playbook for their own transformation. Becoming future-proof is more than just about getting through a crisis - it is about being ready for the new world that awaits us on the other side.
In this keynote, attendees will learn:
- Why there is no such thing as digital disruption, just digital delivery
- Why there is no remote work, just work
- Why AI is not here to destroy our jobs, but it will change them
The Future Favors The Bold
Now is the time for transformational leadership. Customers are changing, generational priorities are shifting, and industries are being reshaped by the collision of AI and data-driven business models. In this new world, only organizations willing to adapt, experiment, and embrace learning at scale will succeed.
There is nothing inevitable about progress. The status quo is the path of least resistance. A better, brighter future is the direct result of radical reinvention, not incremental improvement. Too often we fail to commit energy and resources to the real drivers of difference: projects that depart from the norm, products or services that never existed before, and technologies combined in new and unexpected ways.
Transformation is a path, not a plan. It could be the courageous decision to back a provocative idea from an unexpected source or the recognition that a broken rule might be a smarter way of doing things. It could be as big as merging with a disruptive competitor or as simple as hiring someone whose thinking challenges what you know to be true. The future is not an upgrade on the familiar, it is a world built by the bold.
Based on Mike Walsh’s extensive research into the habits and mindsets of the world’s most dynamic organizations and leaders, this keynote will not only inspire your teams to embrace a new approach to change but will also empower them with a robust set of next actions personalized for their specific challenges, pain points, and growth opportunities.
In this keynote, attendees will learn:
- The bold believe that 'more is different' not 'less is more'
- The bold believe that failure is free, and success is expensive
- The bold have a bias for action, even when the future is uncertain
What Leaders Need To Know About the Metaverse
The Metaverse is more than a gold rush; it will be an alchemical transformation in the way the world works. Over the next few years, we will see a rapid convergence between the digital and real-world driven by increasingly sophisticated devices, decentralized blockchain technologies, and AI platforms capable of generating persistent, immersive, and collaborative experiences indistinguishable from reality.
Mike Walsh's new keynote presentation will demystify core Metaverse technologies and concepts like NFTs, DAOs, DeFi, XR, DeSO, GameFi, and Web3. In addition, with a playbook-style approach, he will provide insights into what it will take to pioneer Metaverse applications, experiment with new ways of working and attract and develop the right kind of talent to help you achieve your goals.
The time for action is now. Every organization and industry will be impacted by the next iteration of the Web and its radical interfaces, infrastructure, and investment models. The question for leaders is no longer what is the Metaverse, but rather - what is our plan for it?
In this keynote, attendees will learn:
- Successful case studies of how both existing brands and disruptive new entrants are leveraging Web3 technologies to reinvent customer experiences, create engaged communities, and unlock new value creation opportunities.
- What the Metaverse means for enterprises and how we work - whether it be personal avatars in hybrid workspaces, digital twins on the factory floor, or smart contracts in the supply chain.
- A Metaverse toolkit for leaders to understand and navigate emerging ethical and strategic issues like privacy, fraud, user safety, sustainability, governance, and control.
Designing your business for the 21st century
Most companies are simply not designed to survive. They become successful on the basis of one big idea or breakthrough product,' says CEO Mike Walsh of Tomorrow, a global consultancy that helps design 21st-century businesses. 'The companies that will thrive in the near future are the ones not only embracing change but breaking the rules.'
Companies built to survive the future are no accident. They are a result of deliberate business design decisions smart leaders are making today. In his ongoing research on the world’s most innovative companies, Mike has organized these decisions into seven strategic priorities - that he will explore with audiences as a roadmap for their own reinvention.
In this keynote, Walsh will outline the megatrends shaping the future of business and consumer behaviour, and the lessons learned from successful Fortune 500 companies on leveraging disruptive innovation, adopting a data-driven mindset and leading change through digital transformation.
