Raymond de Villiers talks about understanding how trends like Cheap Energy, Artificial Intelligence, Quantum Computing, Digitisation, Fintech, and other Changing Global Dynamics influence Strategy, Leadership and your Organisation.

Raymond de Villiers – Futurist helps corporate understand how trends like Cheap Energy, Artificial Intelligence, Quantum Computing, Digitisation, Fintech, and other Changing Global Dynamics influence Strategy, Leadership and your Organisation.

An international speaker and consultant who has presented to an impressive list of global organisations helping them understand the challenges and opportunities inherent in the New World of Work.

Raymond de Villiers engaging story-telling style draws on his experiences around the world – including an extensive period in the Middle East – incorporating broad research and sound globally-relevant content making him a fresh insightful voice in his space.

“Understanding how technology and other trends are moulding the changing world, how this is being experienced in the workplace, and how leaders need to respond. We cannot continue to operate as business as usual today is remotely like business as usual was yesterday.

Leaders and managers need to transform how they think and act if they are going to facilitate successful team and organisational dynamics in this new reality. The business model of the analogue world needs an overhaul for relevance in our digital future”

Ray started out with a technical high school education, moving on to studying mechanical engineering.

He joined the family engineering business for a short while before moving into the IT sector with Dimension Data.

Raymond de Villiers researched the influence of computer games on the corporate workplace while he was studying a Masters in Future Studies at Stellenbosch University.

This created a business that built computer game-based simulations for corporates (and killed his masters). He is now part of the team of futurists at TomorrowToday Global.

He draws on his diverse background and experience to track trends and understand the implications of this time of disruptive change in which we live.

Ray’s message and content will help you engage critical discussion points, whether at strategic, executive, or operational management level. Raymond de Villiers message goes down equally well as detailed input into a strategic offsite, or as a motivational conference keynote.

Raymond de Villiers | Futurist 

Raymond joins the dots many of us see, and some we don’t, to draw a picture that helps his clients make sense of the changing world around them.

Using stories, examples, and well researched content from corporates, academia, social and mainstream media he takes you on a journey toward relevance in the new world of work,

Raymond de Villiers is a part of the dynamic team at TomorrowToday Global where his specific focus is on the impact of the transition to the digital world of work.

At the end of a session with Raymond de Villiers whether a keynote or more interactive workshop – you will be better positioned to navigate the rapids of the turbulent new world of work in which we all function.
