Even in 2022, we are not the same as we were when we last gathered at Predict 2021 – as leaders, or as humans. We’re changed. Our industry is changed, and our clients and audiences are changed. Are we destined to repeat the past? That’s up to us as an industry. The future is one we create together and that starts now. That is the purpose of Predict.

Last year’s program represented the radically changed business environment. We explored the economic, geo-political and social issues that hold significant influence over public and private businesses, and individuals.

Topics we covered:
