Event description
Gerald Ashley, author of Two Speed World will engage participants and invite you to explore how we can approach our uncertain future.

About this Event

Gerald will frame his talk around three “provocations” to stimulate ideas and debate.

  • The false god of certainty
  • The dangers of an “over connected” world
  • Efficiency is the enemy of innovation

Outcomes

At the end of the talk he will have helped the audience think more deeply about the nature of change and decision making; and how they may adjust their own approaches to difficult issues in the future.

Style

He likes to be challenging and also entertaining – his aim is always to enliven the topic of business risk and decision making, and not be dull and boring!

About Gerald Ashley

An entertaining speaker, Gerald confesses to having been a banker. He worked in and then ran the proprietary trading group at Barings in London and Hong Kong before he moved (just before it collapsed, thanks to Nick Leeson) to the Bank for International Settlements (the central bankers central bank). in Basel. At the BIS he ran their gold & fx trading operations. His standing with Central Banks must be significant as he has been invited on several occasions to help chair their get togethers. He is currently a Non-Executive Director of Equitile (www.equitle.com) a City based investment fund.

His writing career took off in 2012 when, together with Terry Lloyd, they applied complexity theory and evolutionary ideas such as punctuated equilibrium to investigate the nature of change in business, in their book ‘Two Speed World’.

Gerald Ashley has become a sought-after speaker, advisor, broadcaster and writer on change, risk and decision making. Together with Rory Sutherland (Vice Chairman of Ogilvy Group), they recently introduced the concept of ‘prosilience’ in a really enjoyable and stimulating pair of podcasts for the 99th & 100th edition of The Human Risk. (See www.human-risk.com ) He also (irregularly!) writes a blog on decision making at www.geraldashley.blog

There will be Networking Opportunities before and after Gerald's presentation and debate.
