Bouncing Back: Growth is Coming

Moments of disruption are never without precedent. There are distinct historical patterns at work over the last three centuries that show plenty of context for what we’re going through now and what’s to come in the near future.  We are living in a series of repetitive cycles, known as resets, that readjust the operating system of our very world.  While they are complex, they are still predictable in their outcome.

In this virtual presentation, Leonard Brody can help you shift your perspective on what we’re going through and understand that the success stories in the coming years will be tied to leaders who master these cycles and are prepared to bounce back. He’ll help you and your organization prepare to lean into the inevitability of a coming recovery.  We know factually that periods of upheaval are always followed by economic growth. What changes are permanent and what is only short-term? How can we harness that? And how can we adjust business frameworks to move smoothly and smartly into the future ahead? Brody will answer these questions and more, illuminating the big picture with proven research, experience, and insights.

In this presentation you will learn:

  • How to identify the historical cycles taking place over the past 350 years that demonstrate how things post-COVID-19 will shake out.
  • How to embrace these patterns, adapt to their impact, and lead through this cycle with confidence and clear perspective.
  • About the key behavioural shifts that will remain after the pandemic and what changes are likely to be only temporary.
  • Best practices of companies that thrive in these reset moments and are built to bounce back. 

The Great Rewrite

We are living in a unique moment in history, when revolutionary change in all sectors is occurring at a frenzied pace.

This massive scale of disruption has understandably left organizations on shaky footing, struggling to engage consumers and employees alike and stay relevant.

Those that learn to adapt, those that allow themselves to be “rewritten” for the modern day, will survive and prosper. Those that do not will collapse.

Leonard Brody explains how to deal with the questions the future holds, and how organizations can harness the uncertainty they’re faced with and turn it into excitement, innovation, and success.

Beyond Human

There is a great deal of confusion around what AI is and what it is actually capable of. Beyond Human decodes the world of artificial intelligence from the perspective of its impact on the core competencies of an organization. It puts in place a roadmap for how one can understand the impact of an era when the human brain is no longer the most sophisticated hard drive on earth. It’s about practicality, not scientific theory. We are standing at a great precipice in human history. It’s time to demystify AI and truly understand what it is and how it can be harnessed to propel organizations to their next level of growth and purpose.

Kapital

We are entering into a post currency era; the reign of nation states over money is now over. As the blockchain allows individuals and organizations to launch their own economic systems, the global capital markets will have to react and respond. This may be the largest shift in the movement of money ever.
