How to get timing right in business - new products and services.Innovation. Futurist keynote speaker - VIDEO

Most board room debates about future are not usually about what is going to happen - longer term industry trends are usually fairly obvious and well understood by business leaders. The most important issue is often timing. By WHEN will most new cars sold in Europe be electric powered. BY WHEN will use of cash start to fall in America. Timing is everything. And timing / trends are hugely influenced by customer mood, emotion, soft factors which change customer behaviour. You can have the best Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data analytics, cloud computing, astonishing innovation in the Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, Manufacturing 4.0, robotics and automation - but real progress can be surprisingly slower or faster than you expect.

Huge importance of CHP Combined Heat and Power for sustainable heating in cities. Large scale, efficient, integrating multiple energy sources ranging from gas to solar, wind, biomass, heat pumps and so on. Comments on visit to Brussels after giving keynote to Euroheat and Power in France recently. Huge challenge in meeting carbon emission targets and reducing threat from climate change / global warming. Decarbonising energy production is relatively easy - converting power generation from coal to gas, adding solar and wind etc. But heating homes is heavily dependent on gas boilers today in most nations. Here are ways to make that far more efficient, but it requires scale, government action, district planning and a long range view of what is best for our planet.
