The value of a strong workplace culture is no longer debated. It’s no surprise that the biggest brand on planet, Google, has also won Fortunes' Best Companies to Work For 6 years in a row. However, this begs two obvious questions a) what kind of culture should your place have, and b) how do you make it happen. Read on.

2017 is very different from 2007. Social media, automation, buy-with-a-click, customer engagement, big data and the cloud are just some of the things that have, in just a few years, gone from being incredible to being normal. James O’Loghlin contests that it’s naïve to think the next 10 years won’t bring just as much change.

The other day I was making my son breakfast. I was carefully assembling his preferred mix of Weet-Bix, Chia seeds, cinnamon, greek yogurt and honey. He said to me 'Daddy you're the Wheet-Bix' professor. It both took me by surprise, and made me laugh.  I guess the point my enlighted 4 year was making is that it's pretty easy to be considered a professor these days, where everyone is an expert in anything.

The last handful of years have seen something of an epidemic of extinction in the business community. Looking at businesses failures ranging from Borders to Billabong, Kodak and music giant HMV, brands and industries are quickly realizing that business-as-usual is no longer be enough. Peter Drucker’s insight in the mid 1980s is truer today than ever before: we must now run faster and faster just to stand still.

Technology is evolving and the status quo is being disrupted on a daily basis. Nowhere is this more evident than in the Financial Services sector.

In my short video, I will equip those working in this challenging industry, with the tools to reinvent they way they conduct themselves in business.

Such tools include:

Where you sit on the relevance curve - is your business soon to be obsolete?

How to spot the warning signs that you need to reinvent

How you can innovate to stay ahead of the pack

Through working with some of the biggest brands in the country I have seen first hand, the importance of not only staying abreast of the relevance curve, but of reinvention in keeping your brand competitive.

So many businesses are sitting here today faced with the knowledge that they are less relevant today than they were a year ago.

They don't quite know how it happened; everything seemed to be going so well. They were THE hottest product last January, but now the numbers say different.

Beware the Tyranny of Tradition Michael McQueen warns us in this cautionary tale of a business that gets slowed down by it's 'barnacles'

Every business needs to ask itself, are we innovating? Are we doing enough to ensure we remain streamlined? Or are we carrying the dead weight of processes and systems that are no longer relevant?

Michael McQueen reviews “How Cool Brands Stay Hot” on his blog:

More than ever before, the youth market is as lucrative as it is big. Considering Gen Y possess 50 cents in every dollar of discretionary spending power, companies and brands ignore this target demographic at their peril. After all, businesses whose messaging, distributions channels and products are only geared toward older generations will find themselves increasingly irrelevant in the coming years.
