The Board’s beginning

Issues that matter to our future

The board’s members will never completely reach agreement when we talk issues.

This is an energy we bring to any client project.

We will debate and eventually recommend a course of action.

But there is an underlying consensus that the issues which interest us most, are those big changes taking place today all around the globe; the trends affecting all of human existence.

Some of which are already in play, others yet to be proven or disproven.

  • What will be the effects as the age of oil slows and finally ends?
  • Will technology and artificial intelligence make life richer or poorer?
  • How many current jobs will actually be lost to technology and what new jobs will emerge?
  • How will the workforce be reconfigured to address these job changes?
  • Where and how should New Zealand leverage its unique qualities for World markets?
  • Could social media overtake democracy? Has it already begun? Is it the same thing?
  • Is the teaching profession a cost to the nation or an investment in the future of the nation?
  • People are living longer. What needs to change in Government and society?
  • What will be the global effect of a continued polarising of wealth?
  • Which of our big industries have the most promising future and which are under threat? (Dairy, beef, lamb, wool, forestry, horticulture, tourism, digital innovation).
  • How do the values of baby boomers, the Y generation, millennials and those yet to enter adulthood, actually differ?.
  • Is the human race affecting climate?
