Is change happening too fast for you to keep up?
Are you worried your business will be disrupted – and you won’t know when?
Are you struggling to lead in an uncertain future?

If so, you’re not alone!

Change is happening faster than ever before, and the pace of change itself is accelerating. We hear of so many organisations and industries being disrupted, and you might be next!

Most people think of disruption as negative, but that’s only because they’re stuck. For the disruptors, it’s exactly the opposite – because they are leading the change, and acting decisively to create change. They are not just disruptors, they are also innovators.

Disruption and innovation are exactly the same thing: It’s disruption when it happens to you, it’s innovation when you do it.

There’s no reason you have to sit around waiting to be disrupted! You don’t have to disrupt an entire industry, but you do need to disrupt yourself. Innovate from the inside out.

That’s why I’ve created this program, to help you understand the changes coming in our future and create a future-ready strategy to leverage them for your benefit.

Where Are You On This Growth Curve?

Broadly, most organisations go through three phases.

In brief:

  1. Strive: You see a problem and notice many people with that problem. In this “strive” phase, you build an organisation with the skills and resources to solve that problem.
  2. Survive: The world has moved on, and customers face an entirely new set of problems, so you’re no longer relevant. You haven’t become “dumber”, but you have become less relevant. You’re doing all you can just to survive.
  3. Thrive: The organisations that thrive now solve a different set of problems – and possibly for a new set of customers.

If you were to honestly assess your own organisation, where do you think it would fit on this curve?

The key skill you need to thrive is foresight – the ability to look ahead into an uncertain future and identify the problems you need to solve, and for whom.

Who Is This For?

  4. Access to the Disruption By Design resource centre for 90 days after the workshop

Why Work With Me?

I’m a business futurist, author and workshop presenter who helps you become fit for the future.

I’ve always been interested in the future, from my university thesis in robotics and artificial intelligence, to leading a software development team building the infrastructure for the early Internet, founding one of Australia’s first Web development companies in 1996, teaching thought leaders how to engage in e-learning platforms, and helping business leaders build their personal brand and online influence.

I’m the author of “The Future of Leadership”, “Disruption By Design”, and 10 other books. Forbes magazine rated me the #5 social media influencer in the world (and #1 in Australia) in my area of expertise.

My own obsession is with combining the best of technology with the brightest talent so people, teams, and organisations can thrive.
