The future interviews differently

We are not making any progress in the digital future with our current industrial thinking. We have to rethink, initiate new educational ideas, change ourselves and thus the world. Then we can have a new prospective future. And we have to develop more humour for our world and our everyday life again. Interview with Nico Gutjahr on the Webtalkshow. Who is looking for new ideas for the future: anfragen@maxthinius.de Oder via SprachBox +49 30 6130 90 41 Max Thinius is also known through the famous London Speaker Bureau

The future thinks differently

Max Thinius – Futurologist, bestselling author, moderator, is considered one of Europe’s leading futurologists with a focus on society, sustainability, business and trade. He talks and writes about digitalisation, the future, social development, trade, politics, education, quality of life – in short, a networking generalist view of all aspects of our society and how our everyday life will change. In order to be able to use the new possibilities of digitalisation, we must learn to think differently. Otherwise it would be as if people had tried to steer cars like horse-drawn carriages at the beginning of industrialization. That’s not possible either. Today, unfortunately, we often try to control digital processes with industrial thinking. That is why it is important to understand: the future thinks differently. And you can learn how it thinks. As a consultant Max shows people, companies and regions to learn to think in new ways. This helps them to recognize their own future potential, develop innovations and drive their own orientation towards the future. He publishes in many public media and moderates …

The future lives differently!

Do you still live in the present or already in the future? How will we live in the future, how are we mobile, how will urban and rural structures develop, whole regions and the habits of the people living there? Yes, how will we live? How will our life, our education and our everyday life be structured? Co-Working has become a kind of fashion. One imagines rooms that one rents temporarily. And of course there’s a table football and good coffee. But it’s actually much more than that. There is a deeply developed structure behind good co-working. And not only with a wide range of office services. There are co-working spaces for specific industries. For example, food start-ups settle in a space … right through to legal advice and the mediation of investors, and in the meantime support in company building has also become part of this. In this way, completely new constructs are created, which in their entirety are suddenly larger than existing market sizes. And we are not only talking about the so-called …

Future 4.0 – how future changes our everyday life!

Don’t be afraid of the future! Probably the most entertaining insight into the future, understandable for everyone. Max explains how the future actually works, why we sometimes panic (but don’t have to) and who actually shapes our future. He takes a trip into the world of intelligent refrigerators, new health care systems, smart technologies, self-driving cars in smart cities and wondrous developments promised for our smart everyday lives. He brings all this “smartness” together in an understandable way and shows us why the digital revolution will not overwhelm us in the end, but rather why it offers us all prospective opportunities.

E-Commerce will change it all

From the service society to the life society Trade has always been a major driver of people. Once upon a time, settlements at crossroads developed which became cities. Networking! Crossroads are everywhere today. So is networking. And trade. Even without cities. E-commerce is possible everywhere. And just as supermarkets have changed society, so will e-commerce. There are many prejudices – from the isolation of city centres to the couch potato. But are they true? Discover prospective opportunities and new business models, such as potential for the healthy development of civil society, businesses, cities and communities – even those that until recently you thought were outdated or without a chance. It’s a bit like when the steam engine was introduced. Everyone thought: that’s what’s going to put us out of work. The turnaround brought about by the engines led to more prosperity than ever.

Impulse

Do you want to work on a new innovation or further develop certain processes? Sometimes an impulse can be enough. For example, in a presentation that on the one hand covers the whole range of digitisation and future possibilities in an entertaining and tangible way (for everyone), but on the other hand also enters into the branch- or region-specific topic. As a rule, this accelerates the creative processes or makes people who are sometimes not used to be creative at the push of a button think in a new way. Contact Max welcome@maxthinius.de

Webinar

Different teams are working on different new solutions. These can be presented and evaluated again and again via webinar technology within a fixed time frame. Why? Because the creative input is multiplied in this way. Half an hour of presentation and half an hour of discussion or further development are often enough to address the whole range of possibilities the future offers with the employees. If necessary, ideas for further development can be formulated and coordinated afterwards. Contact Max welcome@maxthinius.de

Strategy evaluation

There is a strategy in the company. Either a fixed strategy or a lived one. Does it still match the development in the market and in international comparison? Just take the health industry: here the market is developing from “treating” to “preventive” solutions – but this is changing the entire market and the business models that function within it. The problem Strategies, whether established or lived, are long-term oriented. And that is actually a good thing, because they describe many basic skills of the company and facilitate many daily processes, because they are created on the basis of a clear orientation. However, in a phase like digitisation, it may be necessary to adapt your strategy. Many companies do so, but out of ignorance of future “real” developments (i.e. the cross-sectoral development of society as a whole – and not the apocalyptic promises of many consulting firms) they leave their own authenticity behind and enter into a dependency, either on new technology or on investments. The solution A strategy evaluation shows you whether your strategy (company, …
