Guest Keynote: 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 organizational structure, and the right culture to maximize 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 optimize your chances to thrive in The Day After Tomorrow.

Meet the experts face to face.
