ABOUT THE TALK: FROM BOTTOM LINE TO FULL CIRCLE
Our operating systems are obviously failing us. What may not be so obvious, is that the transformative real solutions are actually here right now. The counter intuitive approaches to value creation, intelligent allocation, cashless exchanges and more are not only available now, they are ready technologically and socially to be implemented in the real world. When we broaden our view from the bottom line to the full circle, the next co-creative possibilities for our prosperity multiply. The systemic failures of business, governance, economics are not obstacles, rather the next opportunities in disguise. Transformation is sudden. It is not a lengthy process. As soon as you can see it, you become the change. This talk is about seeing the obvious in front of us, to render a more resilient reality than the one we find ourselves revolting against.
