Impact of Coronavirus / COVID-19 on strategies for Travel, aviation, transport, rail and auto industries - board strategy reviews and coronavirus keynote speaker

Travel industry strategies for a post-coronavirus world. As a physician by first training and a Futurist advisor / keynote speaker on industry trends and strategy to over 400 of the world's largest 2000 companies, with a proven track record of longer term forecasting over the last 25+ years, here are some guiding principles for airlines, rail companies, auto companies, hotels, leisure and hospitality industries beyond Coronavirus / COVID-19. The global crisis will accelerate many pre-existing travel industry trends, Most mega trends described in my books, including The Future of Almost Everything, will continue to shape the world as before, but the Coronavirus pandemic will bring forward the timings of many key events. Examples:

Airlines will consolidate more rapidly in Europe because of COVID-19, following US picture over the last decade.  Larger airlines will be most likely to be rescued by government.  Borderline-non-viable airlines will be allowed to fold. Physical retail will lose out even more to online shoppers, with big jump in online sales which will only partially reverse after the pandemic has ended.  Many Shopping Malls will struggle to re-open in developed nations. Even faster growth of virtual working and virtual teams. Faster introduction of virtual learning into college education, MBAs, Business Schools and High Schools etc.

Future impact of Coronavirus / COVID-19 on energy industry strategy, oil, gas, coal, wind and solar power - Energy strategy / coronavirus keynote speaker

Energy industry strategies for a post-coronavirus world. As a physician by first training and a Futurist advisor / keynote speaker on industry trends and strategy to over 400 of the world's largest 2000 companies, with a proven track record of longer term forecasting over the last 25+ years, here are some guiding principles for the energy industry including green tech beyond Coronavirus / COVID-19. The global crisis will accelerate many pre-existing trends Most mega trends described in my books, including The Future of Almost Everything, will continue to shape the world as before, but the Coronavirus pandemic will bring forward the timings of many key events in many industries.

While energy consumption will fall in line with falls in GDP globally, with collapse in oil and gas prices, falls in manufacturing and falls in transport including aviation, recovery of energy consumption will grow fastest in some of the poorest emerging markets with fewer resources to resist spread of Coronavirus.  These nations will experience massive disruption but over a much shorter period than many European nations which will have some success in slowing spread.

Banking and Financial Services strategies for a post-coronavirus world. As a physician by first training and a Futurist advisor / keynote speaker on industry trends and strategy to over 400 of the world's largest 2000 companies, including many of the world's largest banks, with a proven track record of longer term forecasting over the last 25+ years, here are some guiding principles to banking and financial services beyond Coronavirus / COVID-19. Global Crisis will accelerate pre-existing banking and payments trends. Most banking trends described in my books, including The Future of Almost Everything, will continue to shape the world as before, but the Coronavirus pandemic will bring forward the timings of many key events in many industries. Examples:

Huge further acceleration of online sales, mobile payments, mobile banking and business to business online transactions. Many Shopping Malls will struggle to re-open in developed nations. Physical retail will lose out even more to online shoppers, with big jump in online sales which will only partially reverse after the pandemic has ended. Airlines will consolidate more rapidly in Europe because of COVID-19, following US picture over the last decade. Larger airlines will be most likely to be rescued by governments. Borderline-non-viable airlines will be allowed to fold.  Even faster growth of virtual working and virtual teams.

I warned of pandemics like Coronavirus COVID-19 in 1998 and 2015 (books), and in hundreds of keynotes to multinationals, health agencies, NGOs, governments. I always say: "The world can change faster than you can call a board meeting - need for Agility".

I have warned repeatedly over the last 22 years in several books, at large numbers of corporate events, and in many global media broadcasts about new global threats from new mutant viruses, which we see emerging somewhere in the world once every 12 months on average.  

Most of these virus types do not spread far, often because so lethal that they kill faster than spread takes place. But that has meant governments have been complacent, neglecting to fund much-needed research into antiviral therapies. As a result we have nothing to offer at present to those who are sick or dying from Coronavirus COVID-19 except supportive measures.

As I often say to corporations: the world can change faster than you can hold a board meeting (and I don't just mean threats from viral pandemics).  The days of depending on only one Strategy are over.  Every company needs Plan B, C, D and E as well, and to be AGILE in leadership, able to respond very rapidly to major events in our hyper-connected world.

My 1998 warning:( Futurewise, published by Harper Collins)

"One consequence of the increasing population is a growing risk of global epidemics. We are already seeing rapidly changing viruses emerging in different parts of the world.  Every time a new persons is infected there is a small risk of a significant mutation. As the world population increases, so the risk of mutation increases. High mobility also encourages spread.  We have no medical protection against viral plague."

My 2015 warning: (The Future of Almost Everything, published by Profile Books)

Humankind is very vulnerable to viral attack because we have very few, and relatively feeble, antiviral therapies. There is not a single antiviral today that is as effective as penicillin when first discovered. Antiviral research is 50 years behind antibiotics. 


Spanish flu in 191819 spread across the world in months, on foot, horses, donkeys, trains and ships, killing over 30 million people, out of a world population of 2 billion. If a similar highly infectious and lethal pandemic begins tomorrow, it is likely to spread on international flights in days and weeks, not months, with no time for vaccine development or global distribution, and could kill 100 million people within a year.


That is why the World Health Organisation keeps warning governments about these threats.

10 steps to survive global coronavirus crisis. Keys to Agile and Bold Business Strategy and Leadership: Turn market chaos and destruction into opportunity to help make our world a better place. Take Hold of Your Future. Coronavirus keynote speaker

I have been teaching for over a decade how speed of change will be a huge challenge for all leaders and will demand Agile Leadership

Strategies of large corporations risk being overtaken by events.

Your world can change faster than you can hold a board meeting - and I'm not just talking about political changes, energy crises, civil conflicts, trade wars or mutant viruses.

Every large business contains hundreds of potential Wild Card risks - each of which may be very unlikely, but the combined risks can be huge - with very high probability of disruption from one event or another in any year.

That's why we will see growing emphasis on Leadership Agility, Dynamic Strategy, back-up plans and Adaptive Risk Management.
