Consulting is rather broken, it’s based on timeless “best practice”, which is just what everyone else has been doing for years. It’s drawn out to take longer, and to make money from the diagnosis, the ideation and then from the implementation. It’s based on the company’s needs, not the consumers, rooted in management theory and not imagination. It’s confined by technology, not expanded by possibilities.


Tom Goodwin works in a number of ways with a variety of audacious and ambitious senior leaders and companies. 


Roles vary from long term board advisory positions to one off workshops, to short sprint like projects to long term ongoing assignments.


Tom has set up “All We Have Is Now” as an insurgent  vehicle for profound, imaginative change, not the sanitized merchandizing of what appears to be creativity or collaboration.


Every business challenge and opportunity is different, so teams vary from just Tom, to a wide range of hand picked experts from around the world who share common principles.

How is technology changing the future? What are the distractions hyped by tech companies, and what are the more imaginative applications of technology we have today that we can unleash?

How are consumer behaviors and business models adapting?

 

These are the questions that Tom Goodwin, a world-renowned trends and transformation expert, seeks to answer.

RETHINKING YOUR BUSINESS FOR THE POST DIGITAL & POST-PANDEMIC AGE

What would your company look like if you started it today? If you could begin with a blank slate, how would you design your business? What would its vision be, and how would it be structured? What talent would you employ, where would they be located, and what would your training and culture look like? Which technologies would be best suited for your needs today? What would your data strategy be, and which products, services, or experiences would that strategy inform? Most importantly, how do you reach the place you are envisioning?

THE FUTURE OF FINANCIAL SERVICES

Technology has profound implications for many markets; it changes the paradigms upon which financial products, experiences, and regulations have been based, alters our perception of competitive threats, and it transforms our understanding of consumer behaviors. It also opens up radically new possibilities for the years ahead and a range of opportunities to tap into now.

BUILDING A CULTURE OF INNOVATION

What has propelled you and your company to succeed so far may not be what's needed to thrive in the future. In a world of thrusting startups and the loss of the incumbents' advantages, what’s needed is a new mindset for growth and change. 

 

Yet equally, the values your company was built upon, the qualities it embodies, and the strengths your people channel on a daily basis, can be precisely what needs to be reinforced in order to stand out and make an impact. 

 

Building your culture—and meaningfully aligning it internally and externally—is the most important way to create a platform for the future, and this presentation explains how.
