the next economy
The disruptive technological trends
shaping the 21st century.
Technology, which used to be thought of as a function to be outsourced, or a sector on its own, is now a strategic layer across all aspects of the economy.
Global connectivity, digitisation, blockchain, artificial intelligence, intuitive computing, robotics, renewable energy, 3D printing and biotechnology. Together, they're like a roaring tornado creating once in a hundred year revolutions in every industry at once.

Audiences will come away from this talk with the ability to think clearly and critically about the way technological disruption is changing the economy, a skill that's particularly relevant for leaders who wish to maintain a strategic advantage — and protect their organisations against competitors looking to do the same.
