Whilst many companies have planned for and adapted to VUCA, most are completely unprepared for BANI.



What is BANI?

BANI is a new acronym developed by a futurist and anthropologist to provide organisations and governments with an updated concept to replace the VUCA concept. It stands for Brittle | Anxious | Complex | Incomprehensible. In this powerful, confronting, timely and urgently needed keynote, I guide you through the transition from VUCA to BANI and explain how BANI is probably already having a dramatic and negative impact on your business. I will show you how to think about all four aspects of BANI in an optimistic and pragmatic way.



What will you learn?

  • What BANI does to your business
  • How to BANI-proof your business and how BANI can be used as a competitive advantage if you act promptly
  • How BANI is a company culture response to 20 years of living with VUCA and what this means for your business performance
  • How to target specific initiatives to take full advantage of the BANI opportunity



What problems can be addressed?

  • Underperforming business and culture structures that are limiting business performance
  • Ineffective predictions for strategic and marketing planning
  • Mental wellbeing, stress, and burnout of staff
  • Using outdated ways of thinking to address current and future conditions



Suitable for:

  • Business leaders at all levels
  • Board members
  • Strategic planners
  • People and Culture and senior HR professionals
