When preparing a futurist keynote, I like to be able to interact with my audience. Why? Well, because it’s the audience that brings a keynote to life. If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the past few years, it’s that people have far more power than they realize. And this will be seen in the future as well. However, it is important to ask ourselves a vital question: Are we ready for the future?

The answer to that question is definitely: no. Society usually requires a period of adaptation before it receives any changes. Although innovations, technological advances, and new sales experiences have been happening for years, not everyone takes it as something that will always be present in the future. On the contrary, people think that these are unique moments that will never be repeated. They do not believe that this is a way of shaping our lifestyle so that, when the future comes, we are already prepared.
In these times of pandemic, the world has come to a halt. However, we cannot let that stop us. According to studies and analyses of the future, the companies and businesses that remain active during this time are those that will be most successful in the future when everything is reactivated.
Because, as I always say, “if you snooze, you lose”. If we stop now, then it will be much more difficult to restart alongside the rest of the competition.
The future will come with a jolt
The future will not come slowly. As soon as everything restarts we will be in the future, just like that, as if we had taken a leap forward. Now is the time to redesign our business models, to create and invent new forms of marketing, and to keep abreast of the technological trends that appear every day.
From the automotive to the construction and retail worlds, industries have been evolving more and more. Being able to take advantage of the new digital age is what will allow us to move forward quickly, and prepare for when the future comes into our lives.
The Digital Transformation that will lead us to the Future
The new generations have grown up in a world where digital transformation is constant. The use of experience marketing and social commerce has made buyers increasingly demanding about the products and services they receive. This is the perfect time to take the lead and not allow the competition to overtake us in innovation.
The digital age is the one we are living in now, and it will not go anywhere. It will only evolve. The future will be filled with technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality, and Connected Robots. As a futurist keynote speaker, I think it is important to keep up-to-date with new technological trends that will allow us to succeed in everything we set out to do. So, the question should be: Are you ready to receive the future? If the answer is yes, then stay with me and let’s walk towards it together.
