What Future for Saudi Arabia? Keys to competitiveness, investment, innovation, education, diversify economy - Saudi Arabia keynote

Future of Emerging Markets, China, India - Speaker

Future of Saudi Arabia - keynote at Global Competitiveness Forum (GCF 2015) organised by SAGIA. Comments by Patrick Dixon, Chairman Global Change Ltd, following keynote at the Riyadh event.

With a young and rapidly growing population, a key government objective is to create several million new jobs over the next few years, for nationals rather than for migrant workers.  Indeed the future well-being of the nation may depend on being able to generate enough new jobs, particularly for those from 18-30 years old.  While national policies have been developed to encourage companies to employ local people, Saudi Arabia is also looking to stimulate growth of local business and encourage inward investment. Need a world-class keynote speaker on competitiveness in the Middle East for your event?

Reducing RISKS in Banking - future of risk management in banks and why many banks are blind to the combined impact of different events - risk management keynote speaker

Banks, Banking, Mobile Payments, FinTech, BitCoins

Video comment and clips from keynote on risk management for clients of Wolters Kluwer. Future of risk management in banks - urgent steps that every bank needs to take to reduce risks while still remaining agile and able to innovate.  Banks face multiple, highly complex risks in a world that is changing faster than you can call a board meeting. Some of these banking risks are preventing innovation - for example paralysis which often happens for several years after a merger, while legacy IT systems are made to work together.  Others are working against customer interests - slowing down services or preventing access altogether.  Some risks such as cyberattack are likely to grow rapidly over the next decade.  Follow the link below to see all the slides of the risk management keynote.

Why SOCIAL CAPITAL is VITAL to business growth, leadership, marketing, management, motivation, customer retention - Social Capital Keynote by Patrick - SLIDES

Human Resources, Work-Life, Workplace Keynotes

Social Capital keynote speaker Patrick Dixon for Malaysian Institute of Management and Urban Forum Malaysia.

Social Capital is all about using the power of relationships and social networks to drive business growth or social transformation - recruiting and engaging highly talented teams, as well as new customers or followers who become enthusiastic fans.

Every decision-maker in business and government needs to understand how to develop their own Social Capital, in an age which is increasingly influenced by social media, viral networks, tribalism and rapid globalisation. Tomorrow’s most successful companies will harness a highly relational model of leadership based on mutual trust, affirmation, collaboration and partnership, rather than fixed organisation hierarchies, rigid command structures and top-down change methods.

You can have the best “talent" in the world, but isolated teams and individualist leaders can hamper growth. Social Capital leaders thrive on agility, ambiguity, flexibility, creativity and have a dynamic approach to strategy in an uncertain world. They use networks, friendships, communities, interest groups and informal alliances to solve complex challenges rapidly.

Social Capital leaders encourage Open Innovation - collaboration with other organisations. They recruit through channels such as LinkedIn. They inspire strong loyalty, because they understand that friendship at work is one of he most important ways to increase team engagement.

Social Capital is also about common values, shared corporate identity. Social Capital often generates life-long links between people and organisations - a feeling of connection that lasts far beyond their time in the workforce. Customers The most important asset in any business is your community of highly satisfied customers, each of which becomes a recruiter of others as they recommend your products and services to those they know.

Therefore your customer’s social networks become a powerful extension of your own. Next-generation marketing is all about harnessing the Social Capital of such informal networks to amplify corporate messages, reach new people, and gain vital intelligence. Tribalism is the most powerful force in the world today: every brand creates a tribe, every customer group is a tribe, every social network is a tribe. Understanding how to harness

Tribalism is the key to extending into new markets, finding new customers, and keeping them loyal. It is easy to see the wide and rapid impact of Social Capital when a personal story about a bad customer experience goes viral. Companies need a comprehensive range of new strategies to harness social capital positively, including the ability to respond to social network activity at the speed of light. Government Every politician knows very well that their entire future depends on social capital - it makes no difference if they live within a democratic society or a dictatorship or a blend of both.

The best Talent Management Tool I have ever seen - free 1 month use - upload your own HR data today - it could transform your entire organisation

Human Resources, Work-Life, Workplace Keynotes

Here's the best talent management tool I have ever seen. And believe me, I see a load of things. Talent Management is the Next Big Thing in Human Resources - because it really matters, and is often done so badly - here is a brilliant software tool to help you do it.  I have given keynotes to thousands of senior HR executives over many years about the future of HR, and very occasionally I see something that really blows me away - like this talent management tool called Talent Lab.  Just about every senior executive I have shown it to has wanted to try it out in their own organisation.  Talent Lab is simple, elegant, intuitive, as a front-end animator to Excell or any other data set which can be imported.  Here is a 60 minute video clip of just one or two of its features - analysing (just for fun) British Members of Parliament, not by talent, but by their personal expense claims, which we can visualise by Political Party, where they live, gender, age and so on. You can try this Talent Management Tool for free:  read on below.
