In my lecture I will discuss the impact of megatrends on companies, (public) institutions, us as citizens and society. What are the most important megatrends for your organization? How can your organization prepare for this? What does this require in terms of skills and mindset from employees? What can you do now to be better prepared for the future?
As a futurist, I discuss the most relevant megatrends during the lecture, such as climate change, aging, urbanization, immigration, shifting economic power balance and technological developments. Not only do I discuss trends in isolation, but I also explore with the audience the second-order effects or consequences of trends that reinforce each other.
Depending on the purpose of the session, I adjust the focus. This may lie in practical applications, such as concrete actions that participants can immediately put into action, strategic choices for the direction of the organization, or social impact and political dilemmas. In his lectures, I use many concrete examples and working methods.
After the lecture, the audience will go home with a fresh perspective on megatrends. The lecture provides food for thought as well as practical insights for their own work and lives.
