Two central themes of my recent work have been board innovation and the future of capital markets and investment (including the possible shape of post-capitalism). I recent ran the inaugural Directing Innovation programs for Australian Institute of Company Directors and have been working with a number of boards on driving innovation. Activities on the future of capital markets front have included a keynote at Dubai Ministry of Finance’s The World in the Future conference, a workshop for a major fund manager on planning the next 10 years, and advising a large sovereign wealth fund on how to apply futures methodologies to their long-term investment strategies. See below for more on these topics, more futurist resources in the next issue of the newsletter. Have a most wonderful day!
