Why MOST CEO SPEECHES don't create passion or purpose. Here's example of a PURPOSE linked speech - for a hypothetical company in an industry which is often criticised in the media. Leadership Keynote Speaker

Leadership, Strategy, Business Ethics - Keynotes

I have listened to a huge number of CEO speeches over the years to their global teams at major events, and there is often a problem.

The same for Finance Directors. I was once about to start a leadership programme at one of the world's best known Business Schools and the session immediately before me, to introduce the week, was led by the Finance Director.  Just before he entered the room, we had 40 highly energised, highly motivated people, bursting with energy, ideas, initiative and passion.  

As that Finance Director began to speak, the energy drained right out of the room. Within a couple of minutes he had lost the audience, many of whom were doing things like emails, WhatsApping friends or researching their next holiday online.  It was awful and embarrassing.... 

So here's another approach in the video above. It's an unscripted 3 minute piece I did without any rehearsals, quite spontaneously, in the middle of a one hour keynote to 4,500 people on how to create highly engaging corporate events. Just to make a point. Tailored for an imaginary global Insurance company - that industry is often attacked in the media by customers for being slow in paying their claims, and fast in making profits.

What is the Future of the Life Insurance Industry?

Interview 22 September 2022 following keynote on the future of the life insurance industry for Equisoft in Las Vegas

As one of the world's leading Futurists, I have worked with many of the world's largest insurance companies, companies like Aviva, Prudential, Munich Re and Swiss Re, advising them on a wide variety of global trends, giving keynotes on the future of Life Insurance and many other related issues at their most important global events.

How can we expand rapidly in new regions? What about future changes in life expectancy?  

One thing is certain:

Life Insurance will see huge growth globally over the next three decades for a number of reasons....

Future of Work, Workplace and HR - Keynotes

Interview for Oksigen newspaper Turkey on future of Human Resources - September 2022

What changes will we see in working habits?  We will see continuation of many long-term workplace trends, especially amongst workers under the age of 45.  

COVID just accelerated a few of them.  So we need to go far beyond virtual teams or hybrid working

For example: a growing focus on better work-life balance, more flexible hours, permission to work at home at least two days a week.

But these things will not be enough.  We will also see a greater focus on corporate purpose, helping each team member understand how they make a difference at work....

Future of Work, Workplace and HR - Keynotes

A lot of nonsense was talked by many HR leaders during COVID Lockdown about the end of offices and permanent massive shift to working at home. Just as a lot of other nonsense was talked about how millions of people would never go to a physical food shop again, having got used to ordering online.

At first sight 100% virtual working looked great: less cost, less commuting time and so on. But then the problems gradually became more obvious - just as I had predicted many times. The fact is that most companies that tolerate 80-100% home working for most of their teams will lose out to competitors in the longer term.

Senior executives who actually get on the plane and turn up at a potential client's office, take them out to dinner and so on, are FAR more likely to close their first big deal than their main competitor who wants to save on air fare and travel time and just do a sales pitch on Teams. Especially in emerging markets like Middle East or Asia...

Future of Retail Globally - why scale matters for lower cost, better products, stronger brand. Future retail growth in every region of the world will follow same patterns. 70% of retail is 8 companies in the UK. Retail Keynote Speaker

Future of Retail Keynote Speaker, e-commerce

The future of retail is all about scale. In the UK 70% of retail sales are captured by only 8 retail companies in the UK. We see the same trend to consolidation in manufacturing, wholesale, retail supply chains, logistics and fast moving consumer goods, white goods etc.

Megastores, supermarket chains, global fashion outlets, discount stores, shopping malls.

Consumers will see less choice in future but lower prices in many emerging markets as a result of increasing scale by retailers and in their retail brands, retail marketing.
