Ross’ insights on the IT world were refreshing and out-of-box. Just having his name alone on the programme was enough to command our potential delegates to attend. He is efficient and a pleasure to work with. I will not hesitate to recommend him.”

Creating the Future of Business
Powerful driving forces across business, technology and society are shaping our world in unforeseen ways. Online and mobile communication, globalization, attitudes to the environment, generational change, rising customer expectations and many more issues raise vital challenges for companies. However, these and other shifts also uncover extraordinary business opportunities. In this keynote, business futurist Ross Dawson shows what is shaping the future of business in your industry and how you can take the right steps to succeed in this exciting world.
The Future of Customer Experience
Customer expectations are inexorably rising for quality, convenience, transparency, accountability, and perhaps more than anything else, compelling experience. Once customers have been privileged with excellent experience from any company, they expect all other interactions to match or exceed that experience, and if they don’t get it they will happily go elsewhere to find it.
Pervasive connectivity and soaring AI capabilities are transforming how people interact with companies, yet the most powerful connections are often still grounded in human relationships. Institutional trust is literally at all-time lows, however trust and deep, lasting customer connection can be fostered through knowledge-based relationships that are focused on creating value for customers.
Strategy needs to focus on building value for communities, and uncovering new opportunities for customer co-creation and innovation. In this world true leadership is required, building the organizational culture that supports outstanding customer experience, and leading customers into high-value relationships, and employees into a human-focused work of the future.
Competing in the Global Economy
The increasing pace of change in business is creating massive challenges and opportunities. The swift rise of communications technologies, global competition, regulatory pressures, and outsourcing are just some of the forces that must be understood and addressed in any effective business strategy. In this interesting keynote, business strategy consultant and keynote speaker Dawson explains the MegaTrends of the global economy, the implications of a networked world based on talent and innovation, and the challenges and opportunities of generational change.
