Back to Work! Face to Face Meetings Win New Business, Accelerate Innovation, Increase Agility, Implement Change. Future Offices, Future of Work and Workplace trends. Working from Home (WFH) - what next? Workplace keynote speaker VIDEO

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Work, Workplace and HR - Keynotes

A lot of nonsense was talked by many HR leaders during COVID Lockdown about the end of offices and permanent massive shift to working at home. Just as a lot of other nonsense was talked about how millions of people would never go to a physical food shop again, having got used to ordering online.

At first sight 100% virtual working looked great: less cost, less commuting time and so on. But then the problems gradually became more obvious - just as I had predicted many times. The fact is that most companies that tolerate 80-100% home working for most of their teams will lose out to competitors in the longer term.

Senior executives who actually get on the plane and turn up at a potential client's office, take them out to dinner and so on, are FAR more likely to close their first big deal than their main competitor who wants to save on air fare and travel time and just do a sales pitch on Teams. Especially in emerging markets like Middle East or Asia...

Future HR trends, workplace, working from home, office occupancy, motivation, recruitment and leadership. How to form the most effective teams and why most change management programmes fail - HR keynote speaker interview

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Work, Workplace and HR - Keynotes

Interview with InBusiness Magazine in Turkey:

What major HR trends do you see at the moment? This is a very confusing time for business leaders and HR directors, with chaos in energy markets related to Russia, disruptions in supply chains, huge inflation, ongoing impact of COVID and many other factors. What will all this mean for the future of people management, talent acquisition, leadership development, workplace motivation, home working, virtual teams and career development? In my book The Future of Almost Everything, I warned in 2019 about a possible new viral pandemic, about the risk of Russia taking military action in response to fears of NATO expansion, and wrote that oil prices could reach $145. I always say that the world can change faster than you can hold a board meeting, so HR leaders need more than one strategy.  We need to have backup plans for all important things in the business. This is fundamental to risk management and agility, especially in Human Resource Management....

Interview for Oksigen newspaper Turkey on future of Human Resources - September 2022

What changes will we see in working habits?  We will see continuation of many long-term workplace trends, especially amongst workers under the age of 45.  

COVID just accelerated a few of them.  So we need to go far beyond virtual teams or hybrid working

For example: a growing focus on better work-life balance, more flexible hours, permission to work at home at least two days a week.

But these things will not be enough.  We will also see a greater focus on corporate purpose, helping each team member understand how they make a difference at work....

I've been predicting global trends for 30 years - and here's a few forecasts for future of work over the next decade...(and yes I also warned repeatedly in books, keynotes at conferences and in media broadcasts about global risks from new pandemics like COVID).

ALL OF LIFE is a voyage to the future, carrying us beyond distant horizons, blown by the prevailing wind to which we set our sails.

"Many people will relate to this narrative....I commend this book."  Yachting Monthly

6 page feature published in Yachting World

You can read an extract on Google

Life Beyond COVID - millions of people are rethinking their own personal futures, what is important to them, careers, relationships and so on.

Seven years ago, as a pair of empty-nesters, Sheila and I embarked on a somewhat impulsive sailing odyssey, after more than three decades living in the same part of London. I was working at a frenetic pace, flying all over the world, advising global corporations on future trends, while Sheila was running our company, working as a magistrate, supporting a range of community projects, and holding everything else together. We were both very fulfilled, but exhausted.

We were looking to slow down a bit, develop new skills together, kickstart new business ideas, re-invent our future, broaden our minds, see if we could live more simply, and be rejuvenated. We hoped that what we learned at sea might help us sail better through life. But could we really take off into the sunset without wrecking our bank balances, neglecting family, weakening wider relationships, damaging our business, and risking many other things that really matter......?

Seize the day – or your future will take hold of you.

Future of offices after COVID? Why physical meetings will still matter, face-to-face deal-making and change management, impact on office occupancy, workplace redesign, future of virtual teams and global events. Companies need to MEET to THRIVE

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Work, Workplace and HR - Keynotes

What will happen to the workplace beyond COVID? Over the past few months / years I have delivered a large number of virtual keynotes for global corporations, with up to 800,000 on a single live event  - and everyone is now asking about the same thing.  

What is the future of offices?  Do we still need the same office capacity? Will teams go back to commuting to work, or remain virtual working most of the time?  How much office space will we really need post-COVID?  And what will happen to corporate events?

I have been forecasting global trends for over 25 years now, working with hundreds of the world's largest corporations, who invest billions of dollars each year in offices and expensive HQs. History shows that most major historic events almost always turn out to have smaller long term significance than people usually think at the time.

Most debates about the future in board meetings are NOT about what is going to happen, which is usually obvious to those in a particular industry, but are issues of timing - by when. COVID has accelerated many pungent term workplace trends.

So what does all this mean for workplace management, human resources, leadership development, change management, virtual working, distance learning, agile decision-making?

Happynomics - business, wealth and happiness - connecting with purpose and passion at work. Future of Leadership and Human Resources Keynote Speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Work, Workplace and HR - Keynotes

Happynomics is about the link between wealth and happiness.

Everyone wants to be happy – most advertisers try to persuade us that the secret of happiness is the next thing we will buy. But we know that long lasting happiness usually depends on many deeper things: friendship, strong family relationships, good health, personal fulfilment and so on.

It is hard to be happy if you have many worries about money, too little or too much. In fact great wealth brings many pressures of its own. Happynomics is about the economics of happiness. Contentment can be measured not only in individuals but also in communities, or indeed across entire nations, looking at a national sense of well-being.

On a national level, Happynomics surveys show that happyness is enhanced to varying degrees by wealth, education, peaceful government and trust, but weakened by things like corruption, insecurity and unemployment. Happiness is a dominant concept in marketing, customer loyalty, product design and workplace motivation.

Work-Life Balance: Workplace Survival - Human Resources Keynote Speaker for European Commission

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Work, Workplace and HR - Keynotes

Why is it that work-life balance is so often talked about, and so little shown?  Work-life balance is the key to developing high-performance teams. Keynote to European Commission.  I have spoken to audiences in over 50 nations about these and other issues, and wherever I go in industrialised nations, people talk about getting a better balance – especially women. Surveys show that work-life balance is number one or two priority for those leaving business schools. In a recent UK survey, 6 out of 10 of 25-35 year olds said they were looking for a higher purpose at work.  The more passionate people are about the work they do, the less they complain about work-life balance.
