ASMALLWORLD Members are invited to join an online webinar on the "2nd Renaissance: the emergence of entrepreneurial creativity in a world beyond the virus" with guest speaker, Anders Sörman-Nilsson, as part of our ASMALLWORLD Webinars Series.

The pandemic unleashed the largest human behaviour change program at scale - ever. Technology became our lifeline and the platform for our human connection and creativity. While we were hibernating and re-thinking our humanity, our values, and priorities, machines kept learning.

They kept learning to do more of the menial and the mundane so that us as humans could do more of the meaningful and the humane. The viral circuit breaker combined with technology to ensure both reflective introversion as well as extroversion. We re-discovered our personal and brand purposes, and found new ways to express our humanism and disseminate ideas - and build new business model. This humanist response echoes the creative explosion during the recovery from previous pandemics like the Spanish Flu and the Black Plague. We are now at the dawn of the 2nd Renaissance in the decade of the Roaring 20s.

In this session, Anders will cover:
  • Learn how to nurture sustainable innovation for your business
  • Discover how to build diverse teams that boost sustainable revenue, while augmenting the 3Ps of Planet, People and Profit
  • Identify how to scale your humanity by using technology
