                                   MARC GOWER - BRIEF OF TALK TOPICS

           Next, and Then?

           No organization or individual can change in a purposeful way unless the dynamics that
           shape tomorrow are understood. How is one to think about the 'knowledge' and the
           'electronic' economies, for example? Are they identical? Is the 'e'-phenomenon dead?
           Are these the right things to be thinking about?

           In a thought provoking and inspiring way Marc tells stories to illustrate new social,
           technical and economic demands that individuals, leaders and nations will face. He
           explores today's dynamics and provides a foretaste of tomorrow.

           At the end of the presentation the audience will be equipped to navigate through
           tomorrows complexity, to establish more clearly defined targets and to make a more
           strategic contribution to their organization goals.

           What will it Take?

           Private lives will face more options and demands. Navigating through this complexity is
           going to require accurate maps that will simply be wrong or out of date. New mechanics
           will reward those who can perform in it. It seeks multiple skills - social and technical,
           practical and conceptual - from the same person. Learning to learn will become
           increasingly important. What we become will be the consequences of what we choose
           and how we choose.

           Embracing the Knowledge Citizen

           Pressures on national resources will grow and hard choices will have to be made. Not
           least because the tax bases will become more elusive, and national skills will be
           impossible to regain when lost. Governments will be consuming in the order of half of all
           added value, and directing 80% to welfare. Care systems may fail and the population
           will be looking to politicians who can do nothing about it. Enacted laws, often bad and
           enacted from outside, will be challenged and modified. Industrialized nations will reach

           out to poorer nations who will resist and see this as meddling, further compounding
           complexity and driving divides.

           Renewal in this area will be a complex business and what is entailed is presented. In a
           thought provoking and inspiring way Marc illustrates new social, technical and economic
           demands that governments, political parties and leaders will face. He explores today's
           dynamics and provides a foretaste of tomorrow.

           At the end of the presentation the audience will be better equipped to embrace
           tomorrows national complexity, to establish more clearly defined policies and to better
           accommodate tomorrow's citizens.
