• How do organisations support the development of a ‘future proofed’ leadership pool?
• How will we work when five billion people are connected all the time?
• What will be the meaning of free computing power in the business environment?

How will we work when the world population moves to cities?
• What will be the impact of oil price rise and carbon tax on the way we work?
• How do we create optimum team structures when the world is going virtual?
• What business models will be prevalent?
