About this talk

The last few years have seen incredible new technology emerge and add to how we live our lives and do our jobs, and we now live in an era of peak complexity.

So far we’ve said yes to everything, augmented how we do things, but life seems more complex than ever, technology offers more promises than answers, and as a global healthcare crisis sweeps across the world we all need to change faster than ever.

In this 20 min presentation, 20 mins fireside chat and 20 min Q&A, Tom will explore topics like:

We talk a lot about Digital Transformation, but it’s mainly about cultural transformation, how will trust, empowerment, collaboration, and policy help you reinvent how and where you work.

Spaces and Time blend, how can both remote, distributed and asynchronous working help you gain a better advantage and secure and motivate top talent.

Process and People, how can you rethink company roles and structure, processes and recruitment.

Technology, how tech like AI, 5G, VR, cloud-based solutions may or may not change how we work

How to reality innovate. Innovation is often merchandised and celebrated but rarely done, how can companies genuinely embrace the power of the new. Not another hackathon
