  • Why you can be scared or fascinated by the future – but you can’t ignore it
  • What ‘Outside-In Thinking’ about change would look like – and how it could help your organisation
  • Why CEOs need to drop the PowerPoint and start a meeting with a bit of Bold Wonderment… but not in a Kumbaya Way
  • What a journey from Transactional to Mission Learning is all about
  • Why our minds are coded to remember, not empathise – and how you can exploit that
  • and finally
  • The interesting – and surprising – self-test to find out if you’re a Designer, too.
