The Rise of Technosocialism
How Inequality, AI and Climate will usher in a new world.
The 21st century is going to be the most disruptive, contentious period humanity has ever lived through. It will challenge our most sacred ideologies around politics, economics and social constructs. It will force humanity to adapt in ways we can’t yet imagine.
There is much to be highly optimistic about, but it will require humanity to unite in respect to our collective goals and purpose. With the emergence of Artificial Intelligence we are on the verge of perhaps solving the biggest mysteries of the universe, but AI will also allow us to automate society to provide untold abundance and prosperity.
The Big Shift
How Customer Behaviour & Technology will change the Future of Retail and Financial Service.
Ten years ago, no one could have predicted that 90 percent of daily transactions would be electronic, that Internet banking would provide more revenue than branches, that social media would drive your brand, and that growth in mobile banking would be the final nail in the coffin for the dominance of branch banking. Brett King explains:
• Why customer behavior is so rapidly changing, including the four phases of disruptive change.
• How branches must evolve
• Why checks are rapidly disappearing and cash is next
• Why your mobile phone will replace your wallet in the next 2-3 years
• How financial institutions must reinvent themselves or become irrelevant
The Future of Retail & Financial Services
Brett King looks at the latest trends that are redefining financial services and payments.
From the global scramble for dominance of the mobile wallet, the expectations created by Tablet computing, the operationalization of the Cloud and the explosion of Social Media. He explores:
• Why Banking is no longer a place you go, but something you do
• How mobile technology is completely changing the context of banking
• How customer advocacy is killing traditional brand marketing
• The growth of the ‘de-banked’ consumer who doesn’t need a bank at all
For me, the real power of a nexxworks tour is the unique group of people you meet and travel with.
The tour founded relationships with interesting people I otherwise would've never met.
The mix of speakers and content was perfect.
It was truly an eye-opening experience that both enriched my network with amazing people and helped me shape the further direction of my career.
The things you hear, see and learn are a source of inspiration and motivation for the future. We have already implemented some of these in our current strategy and operations.
Nexxworks helps to facilitate innovative out of the box thinking. They will expose you and your teams to a different level of thought leadership, which in turn will help you and your people develop a different thinking ethos for the future.
The nexxworks inspiration series helps us to imagine the future together with all the teams worldwide, and make the bridge to our day-to-day challenges as well.
The nexxworks inspiration sessions were that mindblowing, that I invited my global team to taste, smell and learn via a similar experience.
Meeting today’s companies and speakers brought us refreshing energy and perspectives to our challenges today.
This experience showed how short-term planning and long term planning are both needed. The China visits were truly inspiring in how they execute on that.
It’s so important to step outside the day-to-day business. We are the only ones who can moderate this back to our teams and translate what we’ve learned to accomplish our daily goals.
To new travelers, I hope you feel some of the same excitement, anxiety, and concentration. May you learn the way we did.
We’ve seen great concepts and initiatives from other companies, that made us think outside the box.
We want to make sure that the wonderful company that our family started, remains relevant in a fast-pace changing world.
I view the nexxworks membership as a combination of inspiration, practical insights, and networking with peers.
