Why this is boom-time for physical corporate events in some nations following COVID vaccinations - future of conferencing, keynote speakers. Get ready for hyper-agile pop-up events at short notice. Companies have to meet to survive. CALL NOW +447768511390

London is booming, as are other capital cities in some other nations - hotels are reporting their busiest bookings for corporate events, company conferences, workshops, seminars and client meetings since before COVID lockdown began in March 2020.  (Written on 15th September 2021 - after giving a keynote at a physical client event).

Expect large numbers of last-minute events to be organised, taking advantage of what may become narrow windows of opportunity.

Companies are realising that while many managed fine during lockdown, using virtual tools, they have been unable to innovate, think, change.

Most importantly of all it is almost impossible to land major contracts with people you have never met. Trust is everything.

You can SURVIVE virtually but to THIRVE you have to MEET.

I WARNED for YEARS about new pandemic threats like COVID, as a Futurist and physician. Here is the TRUTH about COVID. Impact on future of health care, workplace, retail, travel, corporate events etc. All successful companies have to MEET to THRIVE.

Here is the truth about COVID.  The bad news and the good news.

For many years I warned as a global futurist and physician about risks from new global pandemics such as COVID.  

And many of my forecasts since the COVID pandemic began have turned out to be correct.  

Yes COVID is a massive global menace and we have very far to go in overcoming COVID, but the world has not come to an end.

Separating FACT from FICTION

Many existing trends have been accelerated but the fundamentals drivers of the global economy have not changed.

Trends that have shaped our world step by step over the last 20-30 years have not suddenly disappeared in a puff of smoke.

And human nature endures as the greatest constant of all: needs, hopes, dreams, desires and fears.

So what next?

Futurist Keynote Speakers - 20 secrets of ALL world's best keynote speakers. How to chose great keynote speakers for your events. Secrets of all top keynote speakers in world-class communication. CALL NOW to discuss your own event on +44 7768 511390

World-class conference keynote speakers create instant magic, energy, engagement and anticipation but are very rare. Awful keynote speakers are sadly very common, dreaded by audiences. You can tell if a keynote speaker is going to shine in a couple of minutes. With every great keynote speaker there's a powerful emotional and mental connection, a big stage presence, an energy which captivates, the whole auditorium lights up. Being a keynote speaker is not a logical or rational thing only. Videos are a very poor tool to capture the experience of being part of a live audience that is being "worked" by a pro. It's almost mystical - connection of one person with hundreds or thousands is primary skill of world-class keynote speakers.

Take hold of your future! How to make radical changes. Future of Work. Salt in the Blood: new book co-author Sheila Dixon. Our 11,000 mile adventure, sailing the Med, across Atlantic, working virtually, re-inventing our global business.Lessons for Leaders

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 Telcos - phone companies, next-generation telecommunications, winners and losers in post COVID global shakeout, mega-mergers, controlling the world's bandwidth and smartphone platforms, e-commerce and mobile payments - keynote speaker

Telcos had a massive boost from the COVID pandemic.  I work with many of the world's largest telcos. They all benefitted hugely from instant shift towards virtual work, virtual social life, virtual entertainment and virtual leisure. Huge increase in spending on personal bandwidth, increased use of personal devices. Huge increase in corporate spending on enterprise wide virtual working tools, upgrades of video conferencing equipment, upgrades in bandwidth with increased dependence on video

If we ever realised our total dependence on high bandwidth, it was at the moment that the world plunged into lockdown. Internet access or speed was no longer the issue, rather continuous, uninterrupted high bandwidth to allow high quality video links. However, the telco industry faced fundamental issues before COVID, and these issues remain.

Over 90% of all web traffic is now video in many developed nations - COVID just accelerated a long trend.  It is already the case in the UK that BBC iPlayer, NetFlix and YouTube alone account for more than 60% of the nation’s web traffic. A single 2-hour video is equivalent to a hundred million emails, or days of voice calls. So forget charging for voice or anything else – costs are dwarfed by streaming video. Data on mobiles will increase 1000 fold in the next 5 years, on 50 billion mobile devices connected to 5G, running at 10gps or higher. That means an entire high-definition movie will download in less than 3 seconds.  So telcos will be forced to focus on new kinds of business, for example cloud services for larger companies.

Future Health Care - medical Tourism - $40 billion a year industry, over 11 million people travelling to other nations for lower cost hospital treatments, dentistry or cosmetic surgery. Organ trafficking. Medical tourism will grow to $130bn by 2025.

A major trend in the future of health care is the boom in medical tourism. One way to reduce future health costs for individuals, insurers or government is to move patients abroad for treatment, and we will see a lot more of this in a world beyond COVID.

‘Medical tourism’ is already a $40bn industry, growing 20% a year, with over 11 million people annually travelling to another country for private treatment, and possibly convalescence in a nice hotel.  The market could be worth over $130bn by 2025. 

The savings in all types of medical tourism can be huge: private health care in Brazil is only 25% of the cost in America, India 73%, Mexico 50%, Thailand 65%, Turkey 60%. Within the EU itself there are also major cost differences – for example, dental treatment in Hungary is far cheaper than in Paris.

Future of Education - radical changes coming. Major rethink about how to prepare children and students for the next 30-50 years. Trends in High School education, Colleges, Universities, Business Schools and Post-Graduate Education. Keynote speaker

The COVID pandemic forced major changes in education, some of which will endure.  Over the next three decades, education will start younger in many nations than today.  Education outside the home for 3-5 year olds increased by 10% to 85% in OECD nations in the decade to 2016.  This will be driven by two-career parents, and by research showing how important early learning is to later success.

School and college is all about preparing a new generation for their own future. In many cases, we will be educating for jobs that have yet to be invented, but most teaching is locked into the past, training for tasks that no longer exist. 

Take examinations: how absurd to force young people to scribe indelible symbols onto pieces of paper, and to lock them into rooms without access to their digital brains. Cambridge University is considering allowing students to write exam papers on laptops, partly because examiners can’t read their terrible handwriting. Many other Universities have already started giving permission to write exams answers on computers if people have a disability which means that writing is difficult or impossible.  Yet handwriting in exams will still be the dominant mechanism for proving student knowledge by the year 2030 in almost every part of the world. Work means using keyboards, not pen and ink.
