Clems current Talk :

The talk is based on the methodology recommended in Thinking the Future, a book co-authored with Mitch Ilbury. It was published in July, 2021 by Penguin Random House. In the initial part of the presentation, Clem describes how you can become a good futurist by identifying the most prominent flags that are changing the present into the future. Then you should examine the consequences that flow out of the flags by writing scenarios around them. Thirdly, you should weigh up the odds of each scenario in light of how high the flags are up the pole. Finally, Clem urge people to watch the flags continuously to see if the odds on the scenarios are changing or new scenarios are coming into play. In other words, you have to be as alert and agile as a fox. Clem then illustrates the process with examples of the latest global flags to watch and the scenarios linked to them, after which he does the same for South Africa.

Talk Topics

As a speaker, Chantell specialises in strategic thinking and the structure of strategic conversations. Shock events of the last few years have compounded the uncertainty that businesses have to face with a world that is changing so rapidly, so there is a greater demand to reassess standard approaches to strategy. Her latest talks focus on this.

Here is a list of her current talks - Title + focus area + [synopsis]:

  1. Dynamic World, Dynamic Thinkers - Developing dynamic decision-making capacity for leaders in a world undergoing rapid change. [In this talk, Chantell will explain why standard approaches to strategy risk redundancy in the face of ongoing global change, and provides a framework for using scenarios to ensure strategic decision-making is agile and adaptive, instead of purely reactive].
  2. Rethinking stakeholders - Effectively managing complex stakeholder engagement and relationships. [In this talk Chantell will show why ‘stakeholders’ now bring a greater complexity, and explains how to rethink them to manage this complexity more effectively and bring greater alignment for your purpose].
  3. Reimagining your meaning of winning - Long-term sustainability, and bringing balance to the bottom-line. [In this talk Chantell explains how businesses are no longer measured purely on profit, but on a scale of broader, ever-changing metrics - some beyond their control - and how to consider purpose, play and performance in line with these metrics to produce a more sustainable meaning of ‘winning’.
