Future of offices after COVID? Why physical meetings will still matter, face-to-face deal-making and change management, impact on office occupancy, workplace redesign, future of virtual teams and global events. Companies need to MEET to THRIVE

Future of Work, Workplace and HR - Keynotes

What will happen to the workplace beyond COVID? Over the past few months / years I have delivered a large number of virtual keynotes for global corporations, with up to 800,000 on a single live event  - and everyone is now asking about the same thing.  

What is the future of offices?  Do we still need the same office capacity? Will teams go back to commuting to work, or remain virtual working most of the time?  How much office space will we really need post-COVID?  And what will happen to corporate events?

I have been forecasting global trends for over 25 years now, working with hundreds of the world's largest corporations, who invest billions of dollars each year in offices and expensive HQs. History shows that most major historic events almost always turn out to have smaller long term significance than people usually think at the time.

Most debates about the future in board meetings are NOT about what is going to happen, which is usually obvious to those in a particular industry, but are issues of timing - by when. COVID has accelerated many pungent term workplace trends.

So what does all this mean for workplace management, human resources, leadership development, change management, virtual working, distance learning, agile decision-making?

Future Health Care - medical Tourism - $40 billion a year industry, over 11 million people travelling to other nations for lower cost hospital treatments, dentistry or cosmetic surgery. Organ trafficking. Medical tourism will grow to $130bn by 2025.

Future Health Care and Pharma Keynote Speaker

A major trend in the future of health care is the boom in medical tourism. One way to reduce future health costs for individuals, insurers or government is to move patients abroad for treatment, and we will see a lot more of this in a world beyond COVID.

‘Medical tourism’ is already a $40bn industry, growing 20% a year, with over 11 million people annually travelling to another country for private treatment, and possibly convalescence in a nice hotel.  The market could be worth over $130bn by 2025. 

The savings in all types of medical tourism can be huge: private health care in Brazil is only 25% of the cost in America, India 73%, Mexico 50%, Thailand 65%, Turkey 60%. Within the EU itself there are also major cost differences – for example, dental treatment in Hungary is far cheaper than in Paris.

More to Life than COVID. Why (exactly as I predicted) most megatrends were NOT radically impacted by COVID. Future impact of COVID on industry strategy, supply chains and wider world. Global trends and Risk management keynote speaker

Future Trends, Economy, Markets, Keynote Speaker

As I predicted when the COVID pandemic began, we've seen very few if any new trends, just acceleration of existing ones.

Here is the truth about the longer term impact of the COVID pandemic. I have been forecasting global trends for over 25 years, with a strong track record of proven results, advising over 400 of the world's largest multinationals, in every industry, across every region, often sharing platforms with their CEOs at their most important events.  And I also warned many times of new global pandemics like COVID-19.

It's easy to get carried away by sensationalist headlines, and to imagine that life on earth will never be the same again, that COVID-19 will permanently reshape our whole world, causing revolutions in every industry and nation. But the reality is going to be rather different...

Take Hold of Your Future - Life Beyond Covid - lessons for church leaders - why virtual church services are reaching five times more people than were attending church before, in some nations. What is the future of Virtual church and hybrid forms of church

Spirituality, World Religion, Christianity, Church

Video in COVID lockdown for New Wine Leaders.  Lessons from life of St Paul who knew what it was to be locked up in prison, and how that experience led to his writing letters, which are part of the Bible today.  So Paul became the world's first time-warp Apostle, the first Virtual evangelist and church planter as direct result of being locked up, isolated for very long periods.

The same has happened to the church in lockdown in many nations.  For example in the UK, 12.5 million people participated in online church services, many regularly, most of whom had little or nothing to do with the church in the years before.  Churches forced to go online each week discovered that they were reaching a vast new audience as a direct result.
