Innovation after Corona
Kevin McCullagh, Founder, PLAN
We’ve all been rocked back onto our heels by the events of the past month and the economic forecasts of what is to come. After dealing with the immediate pain, worry and disruptions, leaders are now rocking forward onto their toes, to plan how to survive and thrive in the After Corona (AC) era. In this seminar, Kevin McCullagh, Founder of the influential product experience consultancy Plan, will lay out a framework to help you identify some of the key changes and the continuities in the business landscape that lies ahead.
As we start to find our feet after the initial shock of the Corona crisis, leaders are working to figure out how to survive and thrive in the post-crisis world. It’s already clear that the economic and social impact will be more seismic than 9/11 or the 2008 financial crisis. So how can we start to think about its implications for our businesses and for our clients After Corona?
Join Kevin for this insightful seminar to find ways to distance ourselves from our unconscious biases and help structure our thinking to gain a more objective perspective on likely futures. Addressing areas including behavioural changes and likely post-pandemic patterns, assess if changes are temporary or permanent, and which are likely to set the context for innovation for the next decade or so.
Now is the time to put in the hard yards, to gain enough strategic perspective to divine the most likely trends and separate the changes from the continuities, so we will be best placed to consider the potential strategic pivots that this level of disruption often demands. Not all of the shifts at present will be relevant to you, nor will all of the others that are likely to fill the media in the coming months, but Kevin will help to frame a solid perspective on change and continuity in our industries. We need to plan and act today, if we are to best position our organisations to survive and thrive After Corona.
Kevin is founder of a strategy innovation consultancy called Plan, London. He writes, speaks, and chairs conferences on innovation, and society; and has been published in: The Wall Street Journal, The Telegraph, FastCompany, Unherd, Icon and The Design Management Review
