Both-And: The Hybrid Future of Events
What's your post-pandemic strategy for growth?
We've experienced a decade of digital transformation in the second half of 2020. What comes next? Let's work on it -- together.
What's the future for events & conferences?
In 2020, Microsoft took its BUILD conference online - and got 20x the attendees. Is the future for events online, in the real world - or a hybrid of the two?
What's the future for the financial sector?
The 2020s will be the years of digital cash. By the end of this decade, almost every major traded currency in the world will be available in a purely digital form. The entire economy will transform - and the opportunities for the businesses that deal with money that work with money are going to be immense.
How has the pandemic changed education?
In 2020, every classroom went online. Education going forward is always going to be a rich mix of in class and online, in a hybrid form. Mastering that hybrid form is going to be key to education in the middle of the 21st century.
What are the opportunities for telecoms in the post-pandemic era of pervasive remote working?

We need to focus on how the telecoms sector can leverage this unprecedented shift into an opportunity to meet the needs of a workforce that has completely changed how it works.
