The Business of Creativity 

According to the World Economic Forum, we have already entered a new industrial revolution - Industry 4.0. 

Technology is changing the nature of organizations, how we work, the value of what we produce.  The pandemic has prompted intense conversations about what is needed to build a better future for everyone.

We believe that a major shift is coming particularly in the areas of leadership competencies, establishing learning cultures, and recognizing that physical capital will be supplanted by human capital. Diversity representation is critical. Ensuring a circular economy mindset which recognizes and promotes additive contributions, knowledge sharing, and inclusion should be top priority.  It is paramount to draw upon the full range of expertise and experience contained in the ecosystem.

To deepen context and further this agenda, we have assembled some links and tables.
