Reactions against Virtual Work and Relationships - Life beyond Covid - what it means for retail, music, leisure and the workplace, for dating, families, wider world. Why there will always be premium for "breathing the same air". Teams need to meet

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future Relationships, Family, Marriage, Divorce

Personal lives are measured in minutes, major events in seconds. And COVID has forced our world to become even more virtual. Our world is obsessed with instant information. 

Digital addiction was already one of the commonest causes of anxiety, depression and complete mental breakdown, particularly among young people, before COVID, even more so during lockdown.

During the height of the COVID crisis, hundreds of millions have been forced to spend far more time online or on video calls than they would otherwise have chosen, and much of that will revert.

Before the pandemic began, the average 15-25 year old in the UK already spent an average of 4 hours a day on a mobile, checking for messages every 9 minutes, with time online directly correlated with risk of mental health issues.

The Real Cost of Divorce

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future Relationships, Family, Marriage, Divorce

Divorce so often means broken promises, wrecked relationships and broken children. However the real answer to human happiness is not fiddling about with new laws, but teaching people how to stay in love. We need to encourage better partner choice, stronger relationships, and early access to expert help, bringing practical compassion not judgement. Ten years ago any politician that talked about "family values" was ridiculed as a right wing extremist. Now everyone is doing it. John Major and Tony Blair both see family life as centre stage, without which society will perish.
