Evolutionary Change to Revolutionary Impact

Reimagining a new world post COVID-19

Insights into the business environment post Covid-19 and its revolutionary impact to economies, business practices, investors’ attitudes and society

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change” – Charles Darwin

Covid-19 has stirred and shaken the global economy to its core. Many economies have experienced sudden and unprecedented economic upheavals. This crisis has necessitated huge business mind-set changes. It will speed up industry and value chain reforms towards agility, scalability and automation.

In this new global business era only businesses with the right leadership will be better positioned as the new post-pandemic winners. Corporate leaders of global capital markets know all too well that their businesses will always be challenged by geo-political tensions, trade wars, changing investor preferences and investor demographics, climate change, disruptive digital technologies and now, pandemic viruses. They expect their businesses to evolve and recognise the need to continue changing the way their businesses will interact and influence customers.

In a new world environment characterised by evolutionary change and revolutionary impact, business foresight thinkers sense that we are moving into a completely new business world era that requires new mind-sets and strategies that can adapt to a whole new way of doing business where only those brands that can adopt new ideas and adapt to changing political, economic and business landscapes will surge ahead of their competitors.

At this conference we will consider the key elements and drivers of the industry digital evolution and assess its revolutionary impact to economies, business practices, investors attitudes and society.
