with Steve Wells, Fast Future
20 September 2018, 08:30 - 12:00
Durham CCC, Emirates Riverside, Park Road, Chester le Street DH3 3QR
Hosted by Bob Hughes, director of Human Capital for Deloitte, this Exchange Event explores the global drivers of change and technology that will impact your business and staff in the near future.
Joined by futurist and disruptor Steve Wells, you will be guided through the uncertainty that is our political and economic environment, before deliberating introspectively on the mind-set and leadership skills we all need to keep a business at the top for years to come.
Sharing what can be achieved if you are willing to be disruptive, alongside case studies from those who have ignored the pace of change in the past, Steve will make you think about a future reinvented by new technology, changes in working practices, people and society.
Presenting plausible ideas around a digitised future that encourage strategic thinking about what lies beyond the hype, Steve will engage you with a futurist’s perspective that gives you a powerful foundation for future thinking and scenario planning, in both a personal and organisational context.
