The Future of Good: Key Business Trends for Long-Term Success

There are tectonic shifts happening in business right now — is your organization ready for this new future?

Afdhel Aziz and Bobby Jones are leaders in the worldwide movement of conscious capitalism. As the co-founders of Conspiracy of Love — a global purpose consultancy that works with Fortune 500 companies — they’ve teamed up with trends forecaster, Lucie Greene, to create the essential toolkit to build future-ready organizations, no matter the industry.

The Future of Good report, authored by Afdhel, Bobby, and Lucie, is an in-depth exploration of key emerging trends that will shape tomorrow, and how brands can leverage them today.

In an exclusive, new, customizable keynote offering, Afdhel and Bobby draw from their extensive report, which explores six macro-themes and 43 emerging trends, to equip audiences with relevant insights and lessons to future-proof their brands and/or businesses.

The Three Tectonic Shifts in Business

The Future of Good report was influenced by the three tectonic shifts affecting businesses today that both Afdhel and Bobby have seen in action. These are:

  1. The rise of conscious consumers: Today’s consumers are more likely to purchase from brands with a purpose that align with their values and the values of the world.
  2. The rise of activist employees: 85% of Gen Z employees believe companies have an obligation to help social problems and 64% of millennial employees have reported not taking a job if a company doesn’t have a corporate social responsibility practice.
  3. The rise of impact investors, who see profits and purpose as inextricably linked.

Some of the best companies and brands in the world today have purpose in common. The goal of this report is to help organizations learn from their peers and become driving forces in building a better future, while also future-proof their operations to meet the needs and demands of today’s workforce and consumers.

In an article with Entrepreneur, Bobby said:

We look at the future of business and culture through these six macro themes, which include civic and society, radical inclusivity, universal wellbeing, sustainable futures, community connections, good culture, as well as moonshots. And through those lenses, we begin to paint a picture of what the future is going to look like and how purpose and business and culture is going to shape those things. What businesses and business leaders can do about that. And what are the implications of these trends that they could begin to adapt in the way that they operate and create in the way that they lead in the way that they work with purpose within their organizations.
