With the Industrial Revolution 4.0 turning into 5.0 before our eyes and terms like VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) defining the new normal, this research-based talk takes on the leading issues around disruption and the seven key elements that help leaders and businesses thrive in these times.This is a no-nonsense talk about facts, the challenges of our era, and the leadership dilemmas we face today. The current generation of leaders is responsible for finding the way through business sustainability, climate change, social change, economic transitions, customer expectations, and changes in technology and the politics of privacy.Built on the long-range scenarios process from the University of Oxford and implemented with considerable success in her adopted country of Singapore as she led businesses through the dynamics of fast growth, recessions, and rapid recovery, Joanne Flinn’s Business Growth  keynote takes the form of a fireside chat among the leaders of the future.

In this session, we’ll explore lessons from the financial crisis, revolutions around the world, art, billion-dollar projects, and businesses turnarounds to help you find your way forward—a way that is right for you and that will improve your organization’s success and make the world a better place.
