"Life is too short to sell things you don't believe in!" - "Only sell to others what you would sell to family or friends!" - Focus on INFORMATION and REVELATION. How to find unique customer insights. Global Marketing trends - marketing keynote speaker

Why so many marketing campaigns fail. How simple things create marketing magic. Why most people are tired of marketing. Focus on INFORMATION and REVELATION. 

First step is to challenge your own blindness about your own customers. If you have been working in the same company for more than three years you are probably suffering already from an element of customer blindness.  This interview was after a Virtual keynote for pharma executives on the future of health care, but the same marketing principles apply to every industry.

"I wish we could exterminate the word marketing from our vocabulary." 

"Let's forget marketing and decide that the only messaging we will ever give is information and revelation."

"Life is too short to sell things you don't believe in".

"The only messages you should give are ones you would tell your friends or members of your own family."

Why AIDS is still a major global threat - another mutant virus that jumped from animals to humans like COVID-19. 33 years ago, that mutant hijacked my medical practice as a cancer doctor looking after people dying at home. Led to global ACET Foundation

In 1987 my medical practice as a cancer doctor, looking after people dying at home in London, was hijacked and overwhelmed by a new mutant virus which had jumped from animals into humans, killing every person infected.  That virus has since killed over 40 million people, and we still have no vaccine after 35 years of research, nor any cure.

And now, with COVID-19, the kind of new pandemic I have often warned of, it feels like history is repeating.

I responded to the global crisis back then, after seeing people with HIV die really badly, often rejected by health care workers as well as by family and friends. I launched a national and international agency called ACET (AIDS Care Education and Training).  

This Foundation began in our family home, and within two years had become a national and international movement - which today has prevention and care programmes all over the world, in many of the hardest hit, most marginalised and remote communities - nations like Uganda, Nigeria, DR Congo, Zimbabwe, India, Thailand, Belarus, Ukraine, Czeck Republic, Slovakia - as well as UK and Republic of Ireland.

These programmes have delivered health promotion / education globally with total attendance in High School classes alone exceeding 7 million, tens of thousands receiving care - in their homes, in clinics and so on.  Other programme are reaching pregnant women, saving the lives of their babies, educating commercial sex workers, and helping drug users to life healthier lives, and so on.

Join my family in making a donation to ACET today.

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

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?

More to Life than COVID. Why (exactly as I predicted) most megatrends were NOT radically impacted by COVID. Future impact of COVID on industry strategy, supply chains and wider world. Global trends and Risk management keynote speaker

As I predicted when the COVID pandemic began, we've seen very few if any new trends, just acceleration of existing ones.

Here is the truth about the longer term impact of the COVID pandemic. I have been forecasting global trends for over 25 years, with a strong track record of proven results, advising over 400 of the world's largest multinationals, in every industry, across every region, often sharing platforms with their CEOs at their most important events.  And I also warned many times of new global pandemics like COVID-19.

It's easy to get carried away by sensationalist headlines, and to imagine that life on earth will never be the same again, that COVID-19 will permanently reshape our whole world, causing revolutions in every industry and nation. But the reality is going to be rather different...  (Article posted July 2020 with minor edits in October 2021 - Judge for yourself how accurate it was.)

The TRUTH about COVID-19 variants such as Omicron, Delta and others to come. Future health care. Why better antivirals more important than vaccines in future health care. COVID-19 variants: impact on business, public health, government

Virtual Keynote on Future Pharma and health care trends - Life Beyond COVID for Five and Co. Virtual Event for clients.

What is the truth about COVID-19 variants such as Omicron, Delta and others that may emerge in future, and impact on future of health care? Vaccine effectiveness in longer term, actual numbers of people in different nations who have already been exposed to Coronavirus and had very mild COVID-19 illness, possibly now immune as a result. 

I am writing as a physician and Futurist, as an advisor to many pharma companies, governments and other industries, and as someone who for over two decades has repeatedly warned of huge risks from new viral pandemics.

Statistics are very confusing.  Here are some important facts... (updated December 22nd 2020, November 11th 2020).

I predicted the stampede by marketing teams towards "purpose-based campaigns" during COVID. Impact on marketing and advertising campaigns + strategy. Appropriate omnichannel messaging in global crisis - virtual keynote speaker on future of marketing

How should marketing and advertising executives respond in the coronavirus crisis?  How should marketing messages be adapted to be more appropriate?  What campaigns should be stopped?  How do we act as good corporate citizens and avoid risks of alienating customers, general public and damaging the brand? What will be the longer term impact of the coronavirus pandemic on marketing and product / services sales as well as customer expectations and behaviour?

As a physician by first training and a Futurist advisor / keynote speaker on marketing / advertising trends and strategy to over 400 of the world's largest 2000 companies, including many of the world's largest retail brands, with a proven track record of longer term forecasting over the last 25+ years, here are some guiding principles for marketing directors.

The global coronavirus crisis will accelerate pre-existing marketing and advertising trends and requires agility, sensitivity and boldness to make the right marketing decisions.

Impact of COVID on strategies for Manufacturing, Logistics and Supply Chains. Board strategy reviews for manufacturing. Futurist keynote speaker

What will be the impact of the Coronavirus Pandemic on manufacturing, logistics and supply chains? As a physician by first training and Futurist advisor / keynote speaker on manufacturing trends and logistics strategy to over 400 of the world's largest 2000 companies, across every industry and region, with a proven track record of longer term forecasting over the last 25+ years, here are some guiding principles to the future of manufacturing, logistics and supply chains as a result of Coronavirus / COVID-19.

I predicted many times future global threats from new pandemics

I have warned for over two decades about significant threats to manufacturing, logistics and supply chains from new mutant viruses which appear roughly once a year, usually emerging in Southern China (for reasons unclear), just one of many potential Wild Cards that could strike down successful global manufacturing business.  For example, when the SARS outbreak began to threaten our world in 2003, my media warnings about the threats from new mutant viruses reached an audience of over 300 million.

Impact of COVID Pandemic on strategies for Retail Industry, Food and Drink - board strategy review. Futurist keynote speaker

Retail strategies for a post-coronavirus world. As a physician by first training and a Futurist advisor / keynote speaker on industry trends and strategy to over 400 of the world's largest 2000 companies, with a proven track record of longer term forecasting over the last 25+ years, here are some guiding principles for the retail sector beyond Coronavirus / COVID.  The retail sector will recover more rapidly in emerging markets with younger populations, less access to health care, and faster spread of coronavirus.

The Global Crisis will accelerate pre-existing retail trends. Most megatrends described in my books, including The Future of Almost Everything, will continue to shape the world fo retail, food and drink sales as before, but the Coronavirus pandemic will bring forward the timings of many key events in many industries and will cause major disruptions.
