If there is one thing South Africans are good at it’s “making a plan”.

In this talk we look at how companies in South Africa and around the world are adapting to the new “abnormal” by focusing on using their hidden strengths to solve new and old problems. After all, every problem is a business opportunity when viewed from the right perspective, and goodness knows we have enough problems right now.

The talk includes surprising success stories from the public and private sectors and includes trends such as:

  • Business empathy – the new case for kind capitalism
  • Dutch donut economics – or prostalgia as public policy in a post COVID-19 world
  • The world’s oldest industry as a leading indicator (or what all businesses can learn from Pornhub)
  • Online activism – or why Animal Crossing and TikTok are a lot more than mindless entertainment
  • From pivots to pirouettes, or from plan B to plan N, why “twin engine” business strategies may not be enough
  • Zoom-bombing as a business model and other unexpected new uses for old technology
  • Finding real value in a virtual world – or why the human touch reigns supreme even amidst social distancing

And much more…

If you are a business leader or entrepreneur in search of motivation and inspiration in a world where nothing is real and everything is possible, this talk will help you gain a new perspective on the new (unreal) reality we find ourselves in.

After all, creativity loves a tight brief.
