*VIRTUAL-New Rules For A New World
COVID-19 is not only changing our way of life, but it will also hasten the arrival of a radical new future of work. While for many of us working from home has been a new and unexpected challenge - that is just the start of a much bigger transformation set to reshape the nature of business itself.
In order to survive, every organization will have to virtualize. Whether it be serving customers through digital channels or leveraging AI, algorithms, and automation to ensure business continuity - we are likely to experience in the next twelve months, a decade's worth of change.
Not every business will make it, but those that do will never be the same again. And for leaders, now more than ever, 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 the current crisis - it is about being ready for the new world that awaits us on the other side.
The Rise Of Generation AI
The next generation of consumers will not only be radically different to anything we have known, they will reshape the future in their own image. Forget Millennials. It is their kids we should be worrying about.
Generation AI, born between 2010 and 2025, are the first generation natural born to the Algorithmic Age, a world in which all of their experiences have been personalized and designed for them with data and artificial intelligence.
As young consumers today they are behind the meteoric rise of Roblox, Minecraft, Fortnite, TikTok, and YouTube Kids. As young adults in the 2030s, their expectations and behavioral patterns will transform everything from healthcare to retail, education to financial services. This is their story.
In this keynote, attendees will learn:
- What makes Generation AI so different, and their unique approach to play, entertainment, and learning.
- Life in the 2030s, and what a decade of accelerated innovation means for the future of interfaces, experiences, and interactions.
- The new skills and capabilities we will need, not only to parent this generation but to engage them as our customers.

The Algorithmic Leader
We live in an age of wonder - cars that drive themselves, platforms that anticipate our needs, and robots capable of everything from advanced manufacturing to complex surgery. Automation, algorithms and AI are transforming not only business but every facet of daily life. While many fear that robots will take their jobs, the rise of machine intelligence begs a more important question: what is the true potential of human intelligence in the 21st century?
In this inspiring keynote, Mike Walsh, futurist and author will present a vivid portrait of a brave new world orchestrated by machines that think, and how tomorrow's leaders can upgrade their capabilities to survive and thrive in an age of accelerating technology.
Audiences will walk away with an insight into the companies, technologies and global forces shaping the age of machine intelligence, as well as a set of tailored next actions on how to redesign their organizations, reimagine their roles and reinvent the way they make decisions.
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.
