Same Planet Different World - what life after Covid-19 will be like
Our team at TomorrowToday is spending a lot of time during the lockdown period observing the changing world around us. It is way too early to make predictions, but we are starting to see signs and patterns of what the new reality of our world will be after we've dealt with Covid-19. We are tracking the changes in four key areas: personal implications, changes to industries and marketplaces, the future of work, and global geopolitical, economic and systemic shifts. 

The Work From Home RevoluNon Starts Now: Remote Teams Made Easy
Building the culture, skill set and team dynamics required for success in the ‘Work from Anywhere’ world
Many people have wanted to work from home in the past, but not been granted permission by their organisations. Now we have no choice, and have been forced to embark on one of the greatest experiments in workplace dynamics in human history: we now all need to work remotely as much as possible. The TomorrowToday team has been doing so for 18 years.
During that time we’ve had over 100 people across 5 continents working in virtual teams, all while never paying a cent in rental. This session will share the lessons we have learnt, both for individuals needing to set up home offices and leaders learning how to change their management styles for virtual teams. We identify solutions to specific remote working challenges, look at best practice for technology to assist the virtual working environment, and show you how to anticipate and overcome the biggest obstacles to making virtual teams really work.
Tomorrow’s World Today
How to respond to the disrupNve forces shaping the world right now and in the rest of the 2020s
We knew the 2020s was going to be a decade of disruptive change - nobody knew how much and how early that would happen. Covid-19 is the biggest disruptor in a generation, and yet it won't be the last disruption your organisation and industry will face in the next few years. This is true in every industry and every market. Smart leaders need to keep ahead of these changes by anticipating them, and developing a future-focused skill set.
To do this, we need our leaders and their teams to be confident and competent in navigating exponential change. This session provides a future-focused toolkit, along with a compelling set of scenarios of the near future for your industry and potential future competitors. It will leave your team knowing what to expect of the 2020s - and even excited about the future - while at the same time knowing what each of them can do to help you get there.

Leading in a ChangingED World (Post Covid EdiNon)
Five vital questions to shape your leadership in the 2020s
Keith Coats and Graeme Codrington updated their best-selling book, “Leading in a Changing World” in 2019. Now, the world has changed more than anyone could have imagined. And, as our book indicated, when the world around us changes dramatically, leadership needs to change as well.
This session is built around five vital questions that will help leaders set the agenda for the 2020s, and understand their role in shaping it. The questions are:
(1) Did we see any of this?
(2) Why then did we ignore the warnings & not take action?
(3) What is the change in context here? What are we ignoring now?
(4) How is this manifesting in your business? (5) How do we tackle these and prepare our leaders and teams for the future?
The world isn’t changing. It has changed. And yet, of course, it will remain “ever changing”. Leaders need to fully grasp the implications of this.

Innovation in a Time of Disruption
The keys to building a culture of innovation in your company and career
Every organisation in the world wants innovation - and now more than ever there is a burning imperative for them to deliver on this. The problem is that true innovation is so rarely achieved. Most organisations have been moving from year to year experiencing not much more than incremental growth and
small change steps, and now in an era of Covid disruption they are struggling to react with anything more than a crisis mentality.
Our team at TomorrowToday has been developing a model of innovation for over a decade, based on lessons learned from the most innovative companies in the world. Our approach aims to embed a true culture of innovation into your organisation’s DNA. You don't want to just deal with the Covid-19 crisis when you can actually use this time of disruption to build this culture of innovation. This session presents the ten keys of an innovative culture, and a model for implementing them in a time of deep disruptive change.

Customised keynotes and workshops
Graeme always adapts and customises all of his sessions for each client engagement, but in these Covid-disrupted times he is even more committed to delivering exactly what you and your team need right now.
Speak to Graeme and his team about your precise needs and requirements for a session that focuses on understanding future trends, making sense of the changing world of work, developing adaptive intelligence in leaders and people, and making the most of disruptive change.


AC/DC - After/During Covid-19 - an online presentation about what happens in the next 12-18 months
An introduction to our team's latest presentation which looks at the data and trends coming out of countries dealing with Covid-19 crisis.

Future Trends & Disruptive Change

Leading Difference Differently
The work that our team at TomorrowToday does on disruptive forces shaping the future of work has focused our attention on the issue of diversity. This is more than a compliance issue, or a social good or something that must be grudgingly done - it is becoming the source of strategic competitive advantage for companies and organisations that get it right. "Getting it right" means a significant mindset shift around diversity as we learn how to lead difference differently.

Build the Future Now - How to keep and engage your customers in a world of digital integration.
The new digital companies that have become household brands have tapped into some core values of the digital age. Learn how every company can – and must – do the same in order to be successful in the future.  
The companies that are shaping the digital world in which we now live are growing at unprecedented rates and have an extraordinary influence on our lives and work. Apple, Samsung, Google, Facebook, Uber, PayPal, Airbnb, Amazon, Netflix and many others are integrating themselves into our lives, and at the same time changing our expectations of how the world around us should work.
To be successful and get ahead of your competitors, you need to integrate these new expectations into your customer – and staff – experiences. This is not just about finding ways to disrupt your industry, as these companies have all done, but rather focusing on what we can learn from way these digital world companies have connected with the values of this new era. These include such key factors as personalisation, ease of use, constant upgrading, simplification, always on, artificial intelligence, collaboration and the sharing economy, gamification and new approaches to trust based on transparency.
Participants will leave the session with a better understanding of the forces that are shaping the world we live in, a checklist of the factors that will make their business successful and a clear framework for evaluating and changing what they do to be successful in a digital, omnichannel world. It goes well beyond the now-commonplace conference question of “what will be the Uber of your industry” and looks at the underlying driving causes of success and failure of companies in the digital world we now live in.
This session will provide a framework for you and your team to analyse your customer experience, your staff experience and your strategy, to ensure it matches the emerging DNA of the digital age. You’ll leave with a deeper understanding of what it will take to be successful, with carefully chosen examples and case studies to motivate you, and a clear picture of what you can do to contribute to this. Insightful, eye-opening and laced with humour, this session will forever change the way you and your team see the future.
