Future of Work - keynote speaker on workplace changes after COVID, new career aspirations, changes in workplace motivation, home working, virtual teams, portfolio workers, future of offices and flexible workplaces

Keynote Speakerfor 800 people at Confinn Event - Vilnius

Future of Work and Impact on Business. How will people want to work after COVID?  Most of my global clients need to know the Future of Work and how their teams will operate in future.  What will happen to future career choices, commuting, team meetings, office occupancy?  Will home working continue, or will too much virtual working destroy the future of the business?  What trends will we see in future business travel? Will large offices become redundant?

I've been predicting global trends for 30 years - and here's a few forecasts for future of work over the next decade...(and yes I also warned repeatedly in books, keynotes at conferences and in media broadcasts about global risks from new pandemics like COVID).

The truth about Omicron and other COVID-19 variants. 10 key omicron issues. Why we must expect further viral pandemics (and many more variants of COVID-19). So what's the answer? Life Beyond COVID-19

What is the truth about Omicron?  What does Omicron mean for our world?

For over two decades before COVID-19 hit the world I warned of risks from new viral pandemics.

And since COVID-19 emerged, I warned repeatedly that we should continue to expect significant new variants to emerge, at a rate of maybe around one significant variant per 100 million new infections.  So Omicron is no surprise.

And many of my COVID forecasts have turned out to be correct - see elsewhere on this site.

Firstly, we need to see Omicron as part of a wider picture....

(Article written 1st December 2021 - World AIDS Day. AIDS is caused by HIV, just another virus that jumped unexpectedly from animals to humans, but in the case of HIV, we still have no vaccine after 35 years of trying to develop one, nor any curative treatments.  My own medical practice was overwhelmed by HIV / AIDS in 1987 which is why I have been so sensitised to risks of more pandemics.)

What is neuromarketing? Why companies are using neuromarketing to design products, packaging and marketing campaigns. How neuromarketing works. Examples of neuromarketing. Neuromarketing keynote speaker

Neuromarketing - keynote for 800 people in Vilnius, Lithuania for Pardavimu Formulae

Neuromarketing is a controversial area of market research that uses neuropsychology to study consumers' sensorimotor, cognitive, affective  and emotional responses to marketing stimuli.

There are various methods of watching the brain "think" or process stimuli, and all these are being used in hospitals to diagnose various conditions.  

These same techniques are now being used to "diagnose" marketing issues.

Neuromarketing techniques

Neuromarketing techniques include tracking eye movements, EEG (cap on head),  watching for changes in facial expressions, functional MRI brain scans (watch areas light up as different parts of the brain are more or less excited), watching pupil size.  

Neuromarketing is just an extension of all kinds of digital testing that has been going on in online marketing for years.  For example, discovering that price tags without a currency symbol are less scary to consumers than with them, and so on.

Carbon Zero Manufacturing: how global companies will race ahead of governments to deliver net zero carbon products. Factory strategies for Net Zero Emissions. Future of Manufacturing Keynote Speaker

Get ready for the Net Zero Manufacturing Revolution which will run faster and stronger than Manufacturing 4.0 ever did.

Expect 100,000 manufacturing innovations to reduce energy consumption, reduce embodied carbon in manufacturers products, and drive sales by proving better environmental standards.  

These changes in manufacturing will happen much faster than government regulations, just like we saw in other sectors such as food safety, food labelling, animal welfare in farming and food traceability.

Expect massive pressures up and down supply chains from larger manufacturers who will be required to report on the carbon emissions per product manufactured.

Concerns about climate emergency has increased during the COVID pandemic, and this will be a very long term change.  It was just an acceleration of year on year growing concerns.

What would it take for concern about climate emergency to turn into a global "war" against climate change?

COP26 and beyond: Climate Emergency will trigger action on wartime scale: Sustainability / ESG will dominate politics for 300 years. Green tech will radically transform life on earth, but not in time to prevent global crises / environmental catastrophes

Over 1.7 million views of my Climate Emergency Webinar and Q+A - based on my book SustainAgility

COP26 and beyond - SUSTAINABILITY WILL BE A DOMINANT ISSUE FOR NEXT 300 YEARS

Expect global responses to the climate emergency on a wartime basis - far beyond scale of any normal government measures.  What we have seen so far is NOTHING compared to what is to come.

Just look at what happened in the War against COVID. And COVID caused a generation to ask deeper questions about the future survival of humanity, about what we have done to our planet. So which will have the greatest impact? One new virus or wrecking our planet's future?

In my book SUSTAINAGILITY several years ago I warned of the dangers of inaction - and showed that we already have ALL the green tech innovations we need to provide radical answers to climate change, just by rolling out on massive scale what we have already developed.

Expect far greater concerns over the next 30 years about sustainability and what kind of planet will remain in 100 years, with shortages of water, food and other resources and major threats to other forms of life. (Written 4 April 2021 - based on many corporate keynotes given at major events on sustainability, energy use and decarbonisation.)

All the world's largest economies will unity in a common aim to protect our future planet. And in many cases, multinationals will race further ahead than government regulations, to prove their ESG credentials (Environment, Social Responsibility, Governance) to customers, shareholders media and local communities. We've seen accelerated corporate responses before in many other areas such as food safety and food labelling, animal welfare in farming, vehicle safety and so on, where companies have rapidly delivered while governments dithered.

The Construction Industry will be the front line for radical change towards zero carbon - linked to 38% of carbon emissions (building, demolishing, heating and cooling) - see below.

Expect massive catch up in America following the exit of President Trump, and fresh initiatives on massive scale to be proposed by both China and India, ramping up rapidly their own national responses over the next decade.

Why this is boom-time for physical corporate events in some nations following COVID vaccinations - future of conferencing, keynote speakers. Get ready for hyper-agile pop-up events at short notice. Companies have to meet to survive. CALL NOW +447768511390

London is booming, as are other capital cities in some other nations - hotels are reporting their busiest bookings for corporate events, company conferences, workshops, seminars and client meetings since before COVID lockdown began in March 2020.  (Written on 15th September 2021 - after giving a keynote at a physical client event).

Expect large numbers of last-minute events to be organised, taking advantage of what may become narrow windows of opportunity.

Companies are realising that while many managed fine during lockdown, using virtual tools, they have been unable to innovate, think, change.

Most importantly of all it is almost impossible to land major contracts with people you have never met. Trust is everything.

You can SURVIVE virtually but to THIRVE you have to MEET.
