The Future of the Metaverse and Web3

In this futurist keynote he will teach you 3 essential lessons.

Lesson: Understand global megatrends and their impact on the Future of Metaverse, Web3, and Digital Engagement
There are forces in the world that have far-reaching impacts across our struggling industrial complex and how that will affect the Future of Metaverse, Web3, and Digital Engagement. These include – global economic power shifts with China and India as first and second with the United States in third place, the population boom in Africa and Southeast Asia, movements to megacities that will be over fifty million people in size by 2050 (Lagos, Nigeria will be the largest), the worsening global drought and water scarcity with effects on growing food and energy production. All of which will have an effect on the configuration, growth and sustainability of cities and megacities.

Continual innovation and futures design relating to Metaverse, Web3, and Digital Engagement will be needed to see how we can serve and protect the 9 billion people expected to be on Planet Earth – across physical and digital worlds – in 2050.

Lesson: See the trends exponential technologies that are changing how we connect online and offline
Nikolas will guide you through the technologies that are accelerating the Future of Metaverse, Web3, and Digital Engagement, and the global innovation economy forward. So many technologies are having an incredible impact – Big data analytics, Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) and machine learning, robotic automation, Internet of Things and the sensor economy, smart cities, genetic editing, sub-orbital Internet, cellular agriculture, biohacking and human augmentation (cyborgs), blockchain and cryptocurrencies, wearable computing, Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), Mixed Reality (XR), 3D printing and additive manufacturing, drones and unmanned autonomous vehicles (flying cars), cybersecurity, Nanotechnology, quantum computing, Computer telepathy, Web3 technologies and the Metaverse, 3D immersive environments, Virtual Work, Entertainment, aSports, Fashion, Retail, Non-fungible Tokens (NFTs), Tokenization, NFTs, blockchain, second life, Meta Horizons and more.

Lesson: See our futures and how we will evolve towards a more equitable and connective world
Futures planning is essential for new, equitable and connective solutions in Metaverse, Web3, and Digital Engagement. We must embrace new ideas like open innovation and non zero sum mindsets to create a world where we can all win through information sharing and collaboration. We must consider bias, privacy and security, and be more mindful in creating Metaverse, Web3, and Digital Engagement solutions where we empower the people that create the magic – the users and the platform designers – while considering a sustainable and responsible approach to the triple bottom line – people, planet, and profit.

Shift your mindset from what is to WHAT IF…
What if you create bolder visions of your future, strengthen strategic planning capabilities, anticipate unforeseen risks, and understand the value it provides to the market, your customers, and your shareholders? What if you create an anticipatory organizational capability? And, what if you empower all employees to be curious about the futures that lay ahead of us in 10, 20 and 30+ years?

Futures Ignition Workshop

The 'Futures Ignition Workshop' is a fast paced and energetic exercise that’s perfect for larger groups of 80 to 250 attendees.

Attendees are divided into groups to choose the top-3 disruptive influences that will impact your business and gain pace by 2030. For each of them real business opportunities are identified that can help inform the strategic direction of the organization. Then we get creative and have the groups write epic 2030 newspaper headlines on how your organization will be world-changing.

The groups then take to the stage to present what they discussed and their headlines. This is incredible to get people thinking of new solutions for their future world and to create a group mindset around futures thinking.
