Disruptive and Innovative Thinking in the Digital Age
Working at the interface between the digital and human worlds, Nigel Barlow explores with leaders around the globe how to develop the qualities of personal and organisational creativity, as we inevitably become digital citizens.

Here are some typical talks:

What does it take to transcend convention, upend assumptions and adopt a possibility mindset? This talk explores what, and how.

Retaining the human touch in digital times – and applying it to the on-line experience you provide for your users and customers.

Millennial Mania - Managing the New Generation
There are over 80 million so-called ‘millennials’ in the USA alone. A generation with different values, expectations and attitudes towards work and technology. So how do we most effectively lead and market to this new cohort?

Future Curious
When the world is transforming and shaking beneath our feet, how do we find the time, space, and motivation to be curious about the new? Curiosity is the basis of creativity, so what are the tools to keep us thinking in fresh, and disruptive ways?
