I hope had a great weekend and are having a solid start to your week.
I’ve got some awesome news I wanted to share. For a while now, me and my team at The Futures Agency have been running the ‘Future-Ready Executive Program’ (FREP) for top managers, high-performers, and C-suite leaders at some of the top Fortune 500 companies to help their best people thrive in an increasingly uncertain world.
And the program has been going very well. So well, in fact, that I’ve decided to open up some of our exclusive monthly content to individuals whose organizations might not yet be in a position to invest in the future-training of their top decision makers like you.
So, if you’re interested in a twice-per-month video program based around timely insights and proven, future-readiness training sessions, I recommend you check out our new Youtube Future Ready membership. You can learn more and sign up here on Youtube or view the video below for more details.

Introducing The Future-Ready Executive - Individual Program
If you are interested, highly recommend the Platinum level to also gain access to our monthly live-on-zoom Q&A sessions which dive deeper into each month’s core topic for the most actionable, personalized value for your career.
Plus, as an added bonus, you’ll have access to all of my complete i.e. uncut keynote presentations from recent engagements
And if you’re ready to invest in future-oriented training like this at this moment, no worries - there is still plenty of free content on my public Youtube channel and blog.
On top of all of that, I’m delighted to be the (virtual) keynote speaker at this year’s IEEE GCAloT in Dubai Dec 12-16 I’ll be speaking on “Redefining Digital Transformation for a Post-Covid World” and will present some brand-new memes :) Be there.
And that is all I have for your. So, have a great day and I hope you continue to the free videos and shortened keynotes we regularly post on our channel.
