Vikram Mansharamani “Navigating Global Uncertainty: An Unconventional Approach” | NSB Engage Virtual Webinar

Crosscurrents of technological, economic, and geopolitical trends are creating unprecedented change and uncertainty. In order to pay attention to what really matters we must learn how to connect the dots and anticipate what’s next. The future doesn’t have to surprise you.

Vikram Mansharamani shows audiences how to look differently at their industry with the goal of managing risk and capturing opportunities others miss. He encourages us to “zoom out” from the narrow lens that often leads us to miss the most important signals – the ones we’re least primed to see.

As a global equity investor with 20+ years experience, and one of Worth magazine’s 100 most powerful people in global finance, Vikram is an expert on issues driving disruption in the global business environment.

Key highlights from this presentation include:

  • Reclaiming control by thinking bigger and critically assessing expert insights.
  • How the impact of change isn’t change itself, but how we think about it and act as a result.
  • Understanding the trends and potential future scenarios that may impact your organization.
    • Four key transitions happening in the world right now that will impact the future.
    • How inequality has intensified due to the acceleration of trends.
    • The potential future for co-working or remote working.
