  • We expect that tomorrow will be pretty much like today, but that’s not the way it’ll be. With the current major changes in demographics, technology, leadership and other changes the future is already different from today. The future of business and individual success, will offer greater vulnerability coupled with increased opportunity. Unless we examine and plan for it in advance the future will catch us by suprise!
  • As these companies have shown us contemplating the future helps us to intelligently plan for an uncertain outlook and come out tops.
  • “ 75% of admin, back office, finance jobs will be digitalised in 36 months” Jeffery Immelt CEO of General Electric, Unless you have something special to offer there’s always a computer that can do your job better. So What’s Unique about you and the people that work for you? Find that and optimise it! And you’ll set yourself apart in the market.
  • HOW DID IT HAPPEN? Catalyst?
  • Forget Competitive Benchmarking!
