The Blended Workforce Revolution Today

Wednesday, 1/7/2020
16:30 – 17:30 SGT

Changes in the working world have accelerated in ways nobody thought possible only a few months ago. When we launched the ‘Blended Workforce Revolution’ research paper back in March, we had no idea it would be so relevant so quickly. Back then we predicted 40% of the global workforce would be independent workers by 2025. Now we believe it will happen much quicker, as experienced professionals laid off during the pandemic begin to offer their services independently.

Join us for our next webinar as we update you on the massive shifts happening in the global workplace.

  • How Covid-19 will accelerate business transformation
  • Update and findings on The Blended Workforce Revolution research
  • What to do now and next year to ride the wave of change in the working world

Since the onset of the pandemic, the way we do business has changed markedly. Millions of professionals have been working remotely; company bosses are downsizing offices to facilitate more remote working opportunities; the rise of the independent workforce has become highly valuable during the recovery, offering a cost-effective solution for cash-strapped organisations that simply cannot afford to employ full-time staff.

The working world will never look the same as it did before the advent of Covid-19, that’s for sure. We’re at a fascinating junction in history.

Innovating during an economic downturn

Wednesday, 3/6/2020

Where prevailing economic and social conditions are shaping the future of innovation, most manufacturers are faced with an innovation paradox, driving growth for their brands during an economic downturn. 

With consumers discovering new rituals which are transforming the way they engage and use products and services, manufacturers are in a race to not only discover the impact such rituals are having on their portfolio, but also to understand the underlying motivation and aspiration that explains the new rituals and translate them into a value proposition that is relevant and appealing to their consumers. 

This webinar will provide perspective on emerging opportunities and offer guidance on how manufactures can build and deliver the right value proposition that works for their consumers during a downturn.

Innovating Through Chaos

Tuesday, 7/4/2020
1.00 am Malaysian Time

I'd like to invite you to a free innovation webinar / virtual innovation keynote I'm hosting on my birthday, April 7th. The webinar is about innovating through chaos, being recession-ready, and tactics for thriving in times of uncertainty, based on my new double-sided book: Create the Future.

In times of chaos, it is easy to get caught in the doom and gloom, and our current time is certainly not short on doom and gloom. However, your consumers' needs are evolving by the minute, and this time period is going to cause a great shakeout between companies that adapt and those who do not. I'll be sharing some battle-tested tactics from those that have navigated chaos before you to help you plan for whatever comes next.
