Future Proof Your Business Strategy

Everybody knows the future is digital:  IOT, automation, robotisation, big data etc. But how will people respond? Is human behaviour in sync with the rapid developments in technology? Join over 200 CEOs, MDs and senior business leaders in central London to hear Thimon de Jong talk on how to future proof your business strategy.

Is your organisation ready for the future? Is your innovation strategy lined up for future change?

Morning Keynote

Thimon will take a deep dive into the profound future behavioural changes in response to a rapidly digitalising post-truth world. Trust levels in society are imploding whilst tech developments
are exploding spectacularly. What does this mean for society and human behaviour? How do these developments transform the world of business and leadership?

The three main themes of this workshop are:

Embracing the Human side of Tech
How will people step aboard the next generation of new technology? Most people rationally understand the benefi ts of the new technologies that are coming, but emotionally, it is a different story. So called ‘automation anxiety’ and ‘algorithm aversion’ are slowing adaptation of new tech down. How can leaders adapt?

Digital Balance in the Connected Society
How to strike a perfect ‘digital balance’ in our rapidly digitalising world – combining the best of the physical with the best of the digital and how to strike this balance in the (B2B) customer experience, with client relationships and on the work floor? What will the role of big data and AI in business decision making be? Taking a closer look into the human jobs of the future.

The Trust Transition & Future Ethics
In a low trust / post-truth world with an abundance of choice and unlimited information, trust is slowly, but steadily moving away from the ‘formal and institutional’ towards the ‘personal and informal’. How does this influence business decision making? And what can leaders do to increase trust – in their organisations and in themselves? One answer is a strategic focus on ethics – to attract talent, increase productivity and because customers and stakeholders increasingly demand it.
