About The Webinar:
Professionals, Business Owners, and Organisations want to know what the future looks like in an unpredictable market landscape. As many organizations try to regain lost traction, what resources and methodologies must they employ to break through the clutter? Understanding the key factors that need to be prioritized in the short-term to create a dynamic and sustainable impact is the need of the hour.
Salim Ismail, who first coined the term Exponential Organisation, will share his insights on the pros and cons of using technology and employing innovations in an increasingly digital and fragile world, as we stand at the crossroads of shaping the future.
This webinar will paint the picture with examples of the two possible futures that lay in front of us, Mad Max, or Star Trek. The attendees will get an insight into the powerful myths and stories that can guide us away from Mad Max and toward a Star Trek future as we think, question, and challenge the status quo.
