Transforming to the next normal

The specific impact, scope, and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic are unpredictable. Yet it is clear that as we emerge from the crisis, many aspects of business and society will have fundamentally changed, certainly for the medium-term at minimum and potentially forever, creating both new challenges and emerging opportunities. In order to understand how we move towards a mindset of thriving and what “normal” will look like, we need to understand how the economic, social and political landscape has shifted.

The objective of this track is to answer the following questions:

  • "What will life look like in the new normal?"
  • "What are the lessons learned?"

Emerging Trends & Opportunities

Even before this global pandemic, it had become clear that organizations and individuals would have to pivot their daily routines in some ways. Although post-pandemic this need to change has been accelerated, this was always the direction we were heading. We have to reevaluate the way in which we work, rethink the way in which we interact and reimagine the way in which we do business.

The objective of this track is to answer the following questions:

  • "How can we predict and plan for the Future of Work, Future of Industry and Emerging Technological Trends?"
  • "What are the challenges, opportunities, and trends for traditional industries as we move forward?"
Ignite track category
Thriving Mindset

Governments, communities and organizations continue to emphasize that the health and well-being of people is of paramount concern. In order to be resilient and thrive, our mindset and the way we tackle the challenges of today will prepare us to be more agile and turn adversity into advantage and hope.

The objective of this track is to answer the following question:

  • "What are the tools and behaviours we need to build a thriving mindset that will help us rise and reinvent in all aspects of our lives?"

#StrongerTogether

As we think about ways to build better in the future, we can’t ignore the aspect of collaboration across people, organizations, and industries. The phrase “A rising tide lifts all boats” is perhaps more relevant now than ever. Efforts like hand-holding, uplifting individuals and businesses and finding innovative and creative ways to thrive together will ensure our collective success.

The objective of this track is to answer the following questions:

  • "How do we as an Ismaili community, and the communities we live in, continue this momentum of collaboration, coordination and cohesion so we can all rise together, thrive and reinvent?"

  • "Which skills, learnings or insights will help me and my organization to pivot such that I am successful and useful in the future?"
