Designing Your Business for the 21st Century

“Most companies are simply not designed to survive. They become successful on the basis of one big idea or breakthrough product," says CEO Mike Walsh of Tomorrow, a global consultancy that helps design 21st century businesses. "The companies that will thrive in the near future are the ones not only embracing change but breaking the rules." Read More >

Companies built to survive the future are no accident. They are a result of deliberate business design decisions smart leaders are making today. In his ongoing research on the world’s most innovative companies, Mike has organized these decisions into seven strategic priorities – that he will explore with audiences as a roadmap for their own reinvention.

In this keynote, Walsh will outline the mega-trends shaping the future of business and consumer behavior, and the lessons learned from successful Fortune 500 companies on leveraging disruptive innovation, adopting a data-driven mindset and leading change through digital transformation.

From the impact of AI on leadership to the mega-trends driving digital transformation, Mike Walsh's keynotes are a blend of provocative questions and global case studies. Read Less ^

The Future of Health

In the future, data and digital technologies will transform the way that people interact with healthcare providers and manage their wellbeing. The rising adoption of health-related smartphone apps, fitness focused wearables, biometric sensors as well as advances in digital biology and personalized medicine are merely the advance wave in a radical re-imaging of health in the 21st century. Read More >

The key trend driving the future of healthcare will be customer centricity - as patients begin to shop for healthcare and wellness services in the same way they comparison shop for cars and plumbers. For healthcare leaders, that means focusing on leveraging emerging technologies like AI and data analytics that have the potential to streamline the customer experience, while looking for new digitally focused alliances and partnerships outside the traditional medical and pharmaceutical space.

Mike’s approach to the future of health is to focus on the human impact of disruptive change. Only by understanding the mindset of tomorrow’s patients can health providers and pharmaceutical companies transition to a highly targeted, personalized approach to wellness.

In meeting that challenge, Mike brings a design thinking perspective to helping audiences reimagine the way that their company should work, inspiring teams to embrace a culture of agility, responsiveness and innovation.

In his ongoing research on successful digital transformations, Mike Walsh has identified the key priorities that smart leaders will need as they challenge their teams to move as quickly as their customers do. Through a series of interviews and briefings, he will work with your team to isolate the frameworks and case studies most relevant to your objectives.

“The most sophisticated technology companies of the future will be in the healthcare space - leveraging the state of the art in search of the greatest prize of all: improving the quality of human life.” Mike Walsh Read Less ^
