The Future – Surviving and Thriving in a Constantly Changing Reality
The next 5-10 years could bring about a greater level of change for individuals, society, business and government than the last fifty. Science and technology will play a critical role in this transformation. Disruptive forces will include rapid technological evolution, the shift from the information age to a biological era, mapping and uploading of the human brain, emergence of new materials, the quest for radical life extension and the pursuit of immortality. These developments combined with economic, political, environmental and socio-demographic shifts will drive fundamental change across society.
In this rapidly changing world, we can expect evolution and revolution in everything from economic, political and social governance systems, through to education, healthcare and security. In business, reinvention will encompass mission and strategy, business models, organisation design and the nature of work. As individuals we will be challenged to think about our own purpose, how we can achieve personal fulfilment and how to structure and enjoy a life that could span 120 years or more.
To help us examine these issues, in this far ranging and inspiring talk, global futurist and award winning speaker Rohit Talwar will take us on a tour of the future. He will explore the key forces, emerging ideas and advances in technology that could shape our world over the next decade. Rohit will describe how these developments could impact everything from the design of products and services to the way in which we interact, sell, service customers and manage our organisations. He will highlight the implications for individuals, organisations and governments and the way in which we design, plan and manage our use of IT to realise its true potential in a constantly changing reality.

Science and Technology Developments Shaping the Next 5-50 Years
Drawing on Fast Future’s EU Futurium study and a range of other research programs, this speech explores the far frontiers and potential impacts of scientific research. Topics include emerging developments in information technology, life sciences, longevity and life extension, brain science, atomic engineering and next generation materials and processes. The speech can be tailored to the needs of individual clients and the range of scientific developments and emerging research that could impact and transform their sector.
The next 20 years will be characterised by fundamental shifts in the global economy, uneven growth, environmental concerns and rethinking of the purpose, design and organisation of business. At the personal level we can expect major advances in human health and wellbeing, radical life extension and the augmentation of humans by chemical, genetic and electro-mechanical means. Scientific advances also promise the potential of shape-shifting materials, uploading our brains to the web, driverless vehicles and artificially intelligent robots doing everything from serving our drinks to delivering babies and presiding over court cases.
Against this backdrop of transformational developments touching every aspect of our world – how do we design and manage an airline that can survive and thrive in a constantly changing reality? To help answer this question, global aviation industry futurist and award winning speaker Rohit Talwar will take us on a tour of the forces, ideas and developments that could shape the next two decades. He will explore the implications for passenger expectations and behaviour, service delivery, aviation business models and differentiation of the airline experience. Rohit will also highlight how others in the sector and related industries are responding.
