Keynote Topic #1


Understanding the Trends In our Post-Covid World

We know the axis of our universe has shifted. But what has it shifted to? Futurist Jim Carroll shares his insight on the path forward.,

The ultimate impact of Covid-19 on your future? Beyond the fact that we will be living in a somewhat surreal and unusual future, another fact remains – every organization is entering a new future in which a new era of massive acceleration defines everything you will do.

Here are some facts about your future:
• 68% percent of organizations have said that global pandemic has forced them to adapt and change their business model
• 77% recognize the need for systemic change in their operations
• 82% believe a more challenging economy is in their future
• and yet 47% of CFO's are not very comfortable committing to new investments in the next 6 to 12 months

In this keynote, Futurist Jim Carroll provides you detailed, customized insight on the trends that matter as we go forward into a world driven by uncertainty, impacted by potential relentless volatility, and unrelenting waves of massive opportunity. For over 25 years, Jim Carroll has provided senior-level leadership insight on how to become a future-ready organization. With clients such as NASA, Disney, Pfizer, Microsoft, Chrysler, the World Government Summit, Godiva, and Nestle, he has a proven track record of aligning organizations to a fast-moving future.

The pandemic has changed everything, and future-oriented leadership is more important than ever before. History tells us that every global crisis shifts the axis of the future of our universe and every crisis offers an opportunity to improve.

Keynote Topic #2

Now What?

Reinvention surrounds us.

It is inherent to our future, fundamental to our success, and a pathway to our action. In this fast-moving, inspirational, and powerful keynote, Futurist Jim Carroll takes a look at the concept of ‘reinvention' from a personal, business, and societal perspective.

What is the essence of the mindset of those who have successfully reinvented? What are the key concepts that leaders need to think about to align their organizations to the reality of a vastly different future - and act upon it? How have nations aligned to the idea of ‘doing what's next' rather than ‘doing what has already been done' in order to enhance their opportunity in the next economy?

Reinvention comes in different attitudes, strategies, disruptive thinking, and actions. In this powerful keynote, Jim outlines the opportunities of reinvention; lessons from world leaders, both personal and corporate who have achieved it, the lessons we can learn from them - and specific strategies to redefine and reinvent your own future.

Based upon the ongoing research for his forthcoming book of the same name, Jim Carroll provides a powerful pathway into the future, the mindset necessary to get there, and the bold actions that must be pursued!

Keynote Topic #3

Our World in 2030:

The Post-Pandemic Trends That Redefine Your Future


Years from now, we will look back and realize that many industries, technologies, concepts and disruptive ideas accelerated throughout the crisis of 2020 - because they played a major role in the rebuilding of our dramatically different future. We will also know that by carefully analyzing the trends of yesterday in the context of fast moving events that we were best able to understand these new trends of tomorrow.

Futurist Jim Carroll examines your world and industry in the microscope of a new lens, providing critical insight to the trends that matter - and that redefine our future. The acceleration of trends like 3D printing and biomaterial science, robots & cobots, genetic medicine and virtualized community care, resiliency-oriented supply chains and last mile logistics technology, delivery drones and personal space heat tracking - all of which are playing a role in our eventual post-pandemic, recovery oriented world.


In this new future, business models continue to evolve but at a faster pace; new revenue opportunities are emerging at hyper-speed as entirely new products are invented and new industries are born to deal with the crisis; entire industries are forever changed as the new era of "personal space" and "economic distancing" came to define all forms of human interaction going forward.

It's in this context that the big ideas are being explored, the bold are defining their future, and the fast are aligning to acceleration. Covid-19 and the economic downturn of 2020 have redefined our future - but it's by understanding this new future and aligning to the opportunities that it presents that breakthrough performers discover their opportunities!

    You certainly challenged us as to the pace of change the future is bringing to our industry, at the same time that you inspired us to embrace it’s opportunities. You were outstanding! Ranchers are pretty conservative – particularly here in Texas – but you were the best speaker we’ve ever had at our event!
