The next 10 years will bring more change than the previous 100 years - a decade of utter transformation is ahead of us. What we do in the next 10 years is likely to set course for the future of humanity, period. Along with the ongoing digital revolution we are now in the midst of the sustainable (green) revolution, and soon to be joined by the human revolution (the convergence of biology and technology). Green is the new digital, and sustainable is becoming the new profitable. As we leap further into the exponential age, the future is clearly no longer an extension of the present, and it's no longer about 'tomorrow', either - the future is a mindset, and it's already here. Science fiction is increasingly becoming science fact as we head towards super-computing and super-connectivity, Web3, VR/AR and the Metaverse, and Intelligent Assistance -(IA)-everywhere.  We now need to take a holistic and inclusive view when leading the transformation of our enterprises and organizations and consider the impact as well as the externalities of exponential technological change on our customers and clients, our people and our brand, as well as on the world-at-large. Strong leaders in this dawning era of digitization, decarbonisation and reformation will take a wider view, and practice 'coming back from the future’ 10 years out in order to make the right decisions, today: A future-ready enterprise gets to the future ahead of its customers and is ready to greet them when they arrive.  Gerd will show what's ahead in the next decade, why 'the future is better than we think' and how to develop a Future Mindset.
