Raymond de Villiers – Understanding how trends like Cheap Energy, Artificial Intelligence, Quantum Computing, Digitisation, Fintech, and other Changing Global Dynamics influence Strategy, Leadership and your Organisation.
An international speaker and consultant who has presented to an impressive list of global organisations helping them understand the challenges and opportunities inherent in the New World of Work. Raymond’s engaging story-telling style draws on his experiences around the world – including an extensive period in the Middle East – incorporating broad research and sound globally-relevant content making him a fresh insightful voice in his space.
“Understanding how technology and other trends are moulding the changing world, how this is being experienced in the workplace, and how leaders need to respond. We cannot continue to operate as business as usual today is remotely like business as usual was yesterday. Leaders and managers need to transform how they think and act if they are going to facilitate successful team and organisational dynamics in this new reality. The business model of the analogue world needs an overhaul for relevance in our digital future”
Ray’s message and content will help you engage critical discussion points, whether at strategic, executive, or operational management level. His message goes down equally well as detailed input into a strategic offsite, or as a motivational conference keynote.
Raymond joins the dots many of us see, and some we don’t, to draw a picture that helps his clients make sense of the changing world around them. Using stories, examples, and well researched content from corporates, academia, social and mainstream media he takes you on a journey toward relevance in the new world of work.
At the end of a session with Raymond – whether a keynote or more interactive workshop – you will be better positioned to navigate the rapids of the turbulent new world of work in which we all function.
