Expert on future of business

Adam Kingl is sought for his expertise on the future of business.  One of his primary areas of research is on the work and leadership paradigms of Generation Y, a demographic that composes half the global workforce today and 75% by 2025, to shine a light on the fundamental paradigm shifts that we will face in terms of what’s important to the world of business and how it will be led.  This will be the subject of his book, ‘Next Generation Leadership’, to be published by HarperCollins in February 2020.

Related to the future of business, companies are concerned about how they can innovate in order to be prepared for the seismic shifts they will face.  Through this lens, Adam also speaks from a practical perspective on topics such as how to improve strategic (business model) innovation, management (or leadership) innovation, and how successfully to leverage culture and engagement in work-life.
