Never before have we worked harder and smarter than today. Unfortunately, that is no longer enough.In order to succeed you need a futurist mindset: A fundamentally new approach to what the world is going to look like, and what can and needs to be done here and now. Liselotte Lyngsø teaches you how to spot and train for the future. People will be influenced by a whole range of trends that together will alter the way we live, travel, prioritize, secure and organize our lives. For instance, are we certain that we will keep moving to big cities when a generation of gamers enter the housing market? Or will they prefer to create new cities with the help of a much faster internet, digital platforms, new family structures and autonomous vehicles? And how will we cope with housing a population if nobody ever dies? Success in the future will not evolve around having “more” but doing things “better”. Liselotte will in an interactive and highly energized presentation address important skills for the visionary businesses of tomorrow such as: the ability to spot taboos, to ”listen louder” and making future based ideas development. Thus, enabling her audience to create original and innovative solutions making both their own life and the world better. Prepare for a fun and thought-provoking presentation.
