Business 2025 - Pathways to Transformation
The main speaker for this first event will be Rohit Talwar - a global futurist, transformation advisor and CEO of Fast Future Research (see profile below). Rohit will share the results of Fast Future’s latest research on foresight driven transformation. Rohit will argue that future success demands a complete rethink of the mind, body and soul of business. He will describe critical drivers reshaping the business landscape, highlight the resulting strategic imperatives and present a framework for driving genuine organisation-wide transformation. Rohit will illustrate this highly interactive talk with case studies of how organisations across the globe are using future insights to drive their transformation efforts. For an expanded discussion of the topic see 'The Case for Total Transformation' below.

The Case for Total Transformation
The commercial landscape is being reshaped by a powerful combination of forces. Economic shifts are redistributing power, wealth, competition and opportunity around the globe. Disruptive innovations, radical thinking and new business models are impacting every sector. Rapid advances in science and technology are redrawing the boundaries between magic and reality. In response, business cycles are getting faster and shorter. At the same time, new generations are entering the workplace with different expectations, individuals are trying to take greater control of their destiny and social media is changing the way we interact, plan and share.
Faced with this rapidly changing reality, businesses are beginning to recognise that simply changing products, promotion and pricing is not enough to ensure future survival and growth. Many are beginning to understand that they need a clear and meaningful mandate for the decade ahead if they are to attract and retain employees, customers and partners. Defining and fulfilling this mandate will require a complete rethink of who they are being as well as what they are doing. This first event in the series will explore the underlying drivers of change, highlight emerging business transformation imperatives and present a model and case studies of how organisations can reinvent themselves in a rapidly evolving landscape.
