Future of Business in Australia
On 21 November 2012, as a guest of BIR Solutions, Paul Higgins of Emergent Futures gave an excellent presentation on the topic Some Trends Likely to Impact Australian Business in the Future
This was a great presentation and it was warmly received by the audience.
This event has been the kick off in the start of a series of thought-provoking insights into how you, as a business owner, can continue to improve and build your better house of business – strong in solvency, viability, sustainability, people, finance and strategy.
We asked Paul to select for us some video clips he particularly liked to augment his presentation and get the audience thinking
Paul’s mission is to help you think better about how your business will optimally operate in the future.
Some of Paul’s favourite You Tube Clips
#1 West Wing – Why Are We Changing Maps?
Apart from being a funny clip, it will get you thinking about the way you always view things and it will ask you to consider, “What other perspectives could there be?”
#2 Cognitive Bias Song
An interesting clip, using song to provide a range of circumstances and reasons as to when you will be likely to hold a bias which will influence your perspective.
#3 Edward Tenner – Unintended Consequences
In another great TED video, Edward explores the issue of unintended consequences – both good and bad – which emanate from a particular development or innovation. He makes the point that unintended consequences often have far reaching effects but often, they are unable to be given any weighting of probability of occurring prior to them happening. The examples are fascinating.
