Greetings everyone, what a roller-coaster of uncertainty we are currently going through! Tough times for many of us. Now we must hyper-collaborate, pursue the unorthodox, adapt quickly and transform: welcome to the great pivoting! Here, below, are a few resources to help with this challenge.
I wish you a safe, nice and cautiously optimistic summer. Remember: The Future is better than we think - we just need to create it proactively…and together.
Kind regards from Switzerland

We're entering the era of the GREAT PIVOTING, dominated by big tech, big media, big state, big health and big green (and soon... big debt). This is a very unique opportunity... and also a tough challenge but I remain optimistic about the future! #greatreset #gr8transformation

I am working on a new piece, to be published via my contributor page, soon, depicting what I call the Great American Renaissance that is likely to come in 2021. Yes I know that is a daring foresight but I still believe the ailing ‘USS America’ will pivot radically after facing their disastrous Covid19 handling, racial injustice riots, explosive inequality and the now even more obvious perils of extreme capitalism (and climate change, of course)
