Future of the Auto Industry - e-cars, hydrogen vehicles, new engines, radical designs, robot drivers: keynote slides, video, article on auto industry trends

Future of Travel, Transport, Aviation, Tourism

Future of the Auto Industry: Summary of key messages in keynote on auto industry trends by Futurist Patrick Dixon, for event held by the National Auto Auctions Association (NAAA). Car manufacturers are placing a huge number of bets on a wide range of new technologies ranging from auto batteries to hydrogen powered car engines, but only some of these will succeed.  Emerging markets will drive growth in automotive sales for the next three decades.  If every nation had the same proportion of car drivers as the United States, we would have four times as many vehicles on the roads of the world as today. Expect global car sales to exceed 107 million by 2020, up from 80 million in 2013.  Car sales in China will grow from 19 million to around 31 million from 2013 to 2020, while car sales in Europe and Japan will remain relatively flat, with some recovery in the US.

Future of Pharma Reimbursement, Treatment Access and Funding Approval

Future Health, Pharmaceutical Industry Keynotes

In the past, the major challenge for a pharma company was to develop a new therapy, prove impact in clinical trials, show safety, and get licience approval to enable the product to be sold commercially.  Typically the process could take up to 15 years, and cost up to $1.2 billion, which all had to be recouped in 10 years of sales before the patent ran out.  But today there is a massive additional hurdle which is persuading cash-strapped governments and insurers to fund a new therapy for patients.  It is no longer enough to prove the therapy works, saves lives, has less side effects and so on.  The pharma company has to make the case that the therapy offers good value for money compared to other treatments for the same condition. Need a world-class pharma keynote speaker for your event?

Biotechnology, Genetics, Gene Therapy, Stem Cells

What did you learn as an inventor/innovator making a ground-breaking medical device in the early 1980s? It was an amazing time – as the world’s first desktop computers hit the markets in 1978.  I started a company called Medicom Ltd, which developed a suite of programmes to interview patients, help make a diagnosis, record health statistics, do accounts for General Practice doctors, connect to hospital lab equipment and so on. I learned that the most important thing about all medtech is to keep things simple and reliable: doctors, nurses and other health care workers are busy and need devices that work....

How to make Magic for your Customers - Innovation in Travel, Aviation and Rail - Future of the Travel Industry

Future of Travel, Transport, Aviation, Tourism

How to create magic for your customers.  Brief interview at the Aviation and Transport Innovation Summit (ATIS) on the future of the travel industry following keynote for Panasonic - manufacturer of Tough Books.  Customers expect real-time updates from travel companies, airlines, hotels and so on - keeping them constantly informed about what is happening.  That means instant flight updates, info about where your luggage is, what Gate you need for your flight, how many minutes for your flight connection, what the weather is like at the place you are flying to.  SMS is far more effective than email for these kinds of personal communications.  It's all about the customer experience, peace of mind, removing anxiety, solving problems fast.
