About the presentation:

In this world of ever increasing change and digital disruption the so-called “VUCA” environment, the need to be able to move and adapt at pace has never been more pressing.  Yet many companies are still struggling with the challenge of getting their organisation to operate as one behind a clearly defined and compelling strategic direction and as a result are caught in a short term focused doom loop of cost-cutting, employee disengagement and limited innovation.  Their lunch is about to be eaten by nimbler, more hungry and infinitely more agile competitors.  Fifty years ago, the life expectancy of a firm in the Fortune 500 was around 75 years.  Today it is less than 15 years and declining all the time.  Companies such as Kodak, Blockbuster, RIM, and Yahoo were all once household names but now reduced to case studies of how not to run a business.

But does it have to be this way?

Are the old style companies cursed to fail, or can they make the leap from Good to Great in the 21st Century? If so, how? In this new Masterclass Sean Culey, International Business and Value Chain Transformation expert will help you understand:

  • The oncoming wave of disruption about to hit businesses
  • Why the Future is Personal, Automated and Local
  • Why old school management doesn’t work anymore
  • How to segment your business models and value chains around customer delight
  • How to create Value Propositions that excite and engage
  • The blockers to long-term transformation
  • How to break down functional silos and develop a customer-centric culture.

To survive and thrive we have no option but to let go of the past.


Registration Fee includes:

Refreshments and lunch

Networking drinks and snacks at the conclusion of the Masterclass
