The Day After Tomorrow

Most of us focus on Today: on the meetings we will be having, the e-mails we will respond to, the price offers we need to send out while deadlines are breathing down or neck. And we should. Today is what pays our bills. We also think a lot about Tomorrow, about our future value and how our company will survive disruption. Tomorrow is what keeps us awake at night. But let’s face it, most of us don’t think (much) beyond that.

The truly great ones, the giants, those that dictate the market are the ones who dare to envision The Day After Tomorrow. Because that is where enormous amounts of long term value lie. The ideas, concepts, notions or inspiration that focus on The Day After Tomorrow are the ones that change entire companies, industries and even the world.

In ‘The Day After Tomorrow’, Peter talks about the right model of operations, the right organisational structure, and the right culture to maximise your chances for survival in the Day After Tomorrow. He will introduce you to those pioneers who managed to move beyond Today and Tomorrow and were able to change the course of entire industries. He will describe how they did it, so you can learn from their mistakes and their immense successes. But above all, he will discuss the people, the talent, the mind-set and the structures you will need to optimise your chances to thrive in The Day After Tomorrow.

Society is making a flip. Many thought this was because of digital. It’s not. It’s because of networks. In “The Network Always Wins”, Peter talks about how and why everything is becoming connected to everything else in front of our very eyes. And about how companies have no other choice than to become a network when the outside world has evolved into one.

Peter’s presentation is about surviving in the age of uncertainty and complexity. It is about speed, what happens when markets are moving faster than ever before and how control is a thing of the past. It’s about how consumers are transforming markets into fluid but ruthless networks of intelligence. But first and foremost, ‘The Network Always Wins’ is about organisations and how they can adopt network thinking to stay ahead of the game.

We’re living through an age where technology has fundamentally changed society. Where employees have better technology at home than at work, where teenagers have better smartphones than their parents. We’re living through an age where technology has become a commodity, where digital has become ‘normal’.

But we’re probably only halfway in this transition, halfway into The New Normal where we will have to see which business models will survive, and which companies will remain relevant in The New Normal.

‘The New Normal’ applies to all markets, but we have a particular focus on Education, Finance, Health, Media and Retail.

Today, Document management and Web Content management markets are merging into “Enterprise Content Management”.
