Keynote Topics

As you look ahead at the next few months we know that there will be more disruptions, making planning for next year – and beyond that – difficult, but there are at least three things we know for sure: 


While you can’t plan for disruption – you can prepare and make sure you’re ready for whatever comes your way. It’s a subtle distinction – prepare, not plan – but it is important that you understand it.

The next wave of disruptors will bring massive opportunities… but only for those who are prepared. 

You can turn disruption fatigue into excitement for the future. If you are prepared for whatever happens, anticipating at least some of the biggest disruptors, then threats become opportunities, and change becomes your friend.

Our latest insights, titled, “Thriving in a Perfect Storm”, help you to do just that. It’s the product of a few years of research, obviously accelerated and spotlighted by Covid. We’ve identified the main disruptors coming your way in the next few years, as well as the foundations your business needs to be building now to be prepared for what happens next. 

By preparing your team for tomorrow’s world, you’ll open yourself up to the immense opportunities the rest of this decade will bring. This presentation or workshop delivers the following outcomes:


Insights into the seven most significant forces that are already changing the shape of the world around us. These are seven scenarios for disruption we have labelled:


Ageing, Angry Planet, Multipolarit, Big Squeezes, Inequality, Intelligent Advancements, and Angry People.

Together, we call these “Grey elephants” – highly probable, high impact yet ignored catalysts and forces of change. The session takes what you and your team already can see, and shows you a bigger horizon and the significance of “a perfect storm” as these forces combine to create immense waves of change.


We use the Greek concept of “kairos” – a rare opportune moment where those who are tuned towards change can seize opportunity – to focus on opportunities, rather than threats.


This is a much needed corrective after two years of defensive and responsive approaches to change and disruption.

Knowing that we cannot be entirely certain how these scenarios will play out, we show your team what it means to shift from a planning mindset to one of preparation: building foundations that will ensure your business can handle whatever comes your way.

The four key foundations we focus on are: ecosystems (becoming the preferred place to work and an anti-fragile partner in your network and industry), being bionic (integrating technology and a future-focused workforce, getting the best out of both), an explorer mindset (recognising that we cannot think our way into a better future, but need to build experimental mindsets and innovation by design into our DNA), and being a force for good (an absolutely essential shift in mindset and positioning for success by 2030).

These reasonably well worn themes come to new life when seen through the lens of kairos opportunities in the context of the “grey elephant” scenarios. Your team will be informed, inspired and engaged to change how they view the future and contribute to it today. 

One of the most important skills to develop in order to respond to disruption, to respond to deep structural change is adaptability – the ability to be responsive when our environment changes. 


Many people of been struggling with this, and Covid has shone a massive spotlight on many organizations that have been incapable of responding quickly enough to the changing world around them.


TomorrowToday’s new presentation and workshop is titled ReImagine and is designed to help you and your team upgrade your thinking to improve the way that you see the world around you, to improve the way that you think about your strategies, your plans, your targets, your goals, your projects and all the things that you need to do to be more responsive to change 


This has got nothing to do with intelligence. The problem is that actually the more intelligent you are and the more experience that you have in a particular environment, the more difficult it is for you to think again, to think differently, or as we refer to it – to ReImagine. 


Our team has put this program together to help people, whether they are senior leaders with the responsibility for strategy or anyone throughout an organization who just needs to be able to see what’s going on around them, to respond effectively to change. 


We want to help you and your team to be able to reimagine, to understand how cognitive bias works and overcome it, to be able to see change happening and be excited and respond to it in ways that are valuable and add value to the business. 


Most importantly, as we look ahead to what the world will be like as we come out of the Covid disruption and probably head into a digital transformation, other disruptions and climate change disruptions, we want you to see what it looks like to not just rebuild what’s been bruised and battered by change but to actually be able to reimagine what a new, exciting, different future might be. 


If all of that sounds interesting, make sure you contact our team at TomorrowToday Global, to learn how we can help you to reimagine and see what you haven’t been seeing before.

A few years ago, Keith Coats and Graeme Codrington, wrote a book called “Leading in a Changing World”. The key theme of the book was that we need to be prepared for disruptive forces that are coming our way, even though we might not know what they are.


Covid proved that we were right about disruption. And our book has helped many leaders navigate the Lockdown. 

Now, though, we need to help leaders and their organisations deal with a world that has changed. This presentation or workshop looks at three key questions (and provides answers to each):

What just happened (What has been disrupted? What has taken place,  what’s going to be the lasting legacy of the disruption that we’ve lived through, and could we have done better to anticipate it)?
What now? What do we need to rethink and unlearn.
What next? How do we build adaptability into our systems, so we can deal with whatever disrupts us next?
This framework is focused on developing your team’s capabilities and the capabilities of your leaders in particular.

If asking these 3 questions and making sure that you and your team unpack the answers and the implications of what leadership needs to do and what leadership needs to be in this changed and changing world sounds like something that would be valuable for you, then make sure that you connect. We’d love to show you how to lead in a changed and changing world.
