Also a very happy New Year to my speaker’s bureau Inkandescent: http://inkandescentspeakers.com/speakers/86/derek-woodgate
I have had a wonderful year speaking at so many conferences, seminars and universities on a variety of topics, ranging from the future of media and experiential entertainment to major transformations in economic, learning and urban systems as well as new thinking systems, emerging lifestyles and Human 2.0. In particular how redefined identities, archetypes, and the augmented self are creating a “Remix Society” .
In the Age of Upheaval, in which we are witness to significant economic, social and fiscal transformation; the complexities of the global economic playground are as influential as the small entrepreneur’s intuitive play when it comes to the holistic development of the local business environment. With emerging markets, in particular the BRICs and Indonesia projected to contribute over 70% of total global economic growth over the next decade and the BRIC economies expected to provide over 50% of global GDP by 2020, we are seeing not just the rise of a new economic order, but moreover creation of an intricate collaborative battleground, which will have a major impact at all levels and layers.
Derek explores and discusses how this expanding arena and its resulting policies will influence economic, business and lifestyle shifts at the regional and local level.
He considers everything from workforce structures and adaptive enterprises, to a flourishing global talent market, disparate labor force demographics, masses of new middle class customers, complex financial integration, rapid innovation and technological development, as well as exciting opportunities for new converged industries, alternative social-economic structures, greater inclusion and the power of community.
Derek draws upon his work on the “Remix Society”, (with its redefinition of archetypes, identities and the augmented self) and its impact on education, innovation and entrepreneurship – three areas considered critical to the continuing the global position of the US economy.
