Transforming Businesses Intelligently: Secrets of Human Behaviour and Attitude Change
Strategically, we all constantly want to improve our businesses and their performances in so many ways. But do we really know the key drivers behind successful business transformations? Are we aware of the role of human behaviour and attitude in determining the chances of achieving permanent change for good?
This thought-provoking talk will expand on beliefs about ways of how emerging technologies can transform businesses and societies today. This talk blends science and practice to help gain a richer understanding of how transformation works, what its essential components are, how to design and apply influential strategies, what novel technologies - artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and advanced sensing - are effective at facilitating change processes, and what to do first thing each morning. This knowledge is applicable in multiple domains, including but not limited to business, governance, health, sustainability, education, safety, security, equality, economy.

How to Succeed in Transforming Lives and Businesses?
Have you ever tried to change something in yourself or others? How many times you have had a New Year’s resolution that succeeds? Most of us strive to improve. However, we rarely get to celebrate victories in really transforming our habits, behaviours, and thoughts, thus changing our lives and businesses for good. The masterclass will provide a sharper understanding on how the Theory of Transforming Wellbeing empowers us to innovate in ways that will not only make our envisioned changes but also make those changes last. Most of us already want change for better. What we often miss is the knowledge of how to make such transformations succeed and stick. This masterclass will help you develop and internalise the necessary competencies. Come and bring any of your real-life cases to the masterclass, so we can start transforming them right there.

Thursday 20th of September - 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, with registration and networking from 5:30 pm.
