Highlighting: “How to future proof your organisation to remain relevant” Anne Lise Kjær explore the 4P business model, where balancing People, Planet, Purpose and Profit informs the Next Norm bottom-line.

Thinking about the future is now a top priority for leaders. Even before the pandemic, most CEOs said they spent more time than ever looking into foresight and scenario work. This will grow in importance as we all look for inspiration to imagine the next normal. Wellbeing, inclusivity, diversity and trust are imperative topics, accelerated by the pandemic and now informing any serious conversation about tomorrow. 

We are witnessing a global structural shift, where our values and lifestyle patterns are up for review as we look to optimise all areas of life. Our digital reality is already transforming organisations, government and our notions of citizenship. This calls for multi-stakeholder value – challenging existing business models as we redefine success in a post pandemic society – a reality where leaders go beyond words into actions.

TRENDS: Presenting the trends as inspirational case snapshots in logical narrative framework with F&F and insights, Anne Lise Kjær guides the audience in how to cultivate fresh thinking and sustainable performance to lead change. Using the Trend Management Toolkit and 4P model, Anne Lise Kjær dives into the Next Norm Trend Compass 2030+ of relevant core society drivers including: Better Together, Creative Leadership, Well(being) Capital, Economics for Humans, New Models, Deep Engagement, Digital Frontier and Empathic Technology
