  • About the event



    The tumultuous landscape of 2024-2025 is unnerving business leaders. Political shifts and tech evolution is forcing a reevaluation of business and societal fundamentals. With 6G and AI looming, a new digital divide risks sidelining marginalised communities. and a consumer base that has evolved in a post-pandemic world. Companies must be agile and pivot to meet an increasingly eco-conscious (if perhaps not super active) consumer base. 'Digital sovereignty' is on the rise, threatening global internet unity. All being underpinned by AI, increasingly vulnerable to improve, alter, abuse, and destabilise multiple sectors.

    The key to navigating this uncertainty lies in making informed decisions about what's imminent and what's on the horizon, as well as identifying opportunities for meaningful reconnection. In today’s era of remote work and 'infodemics', engaging employees in a value-driven culture is more critical than ever. Enter TBD Conference - technology, behaviour, data. Now in its sixth iteration, 'Fascia' will focus on re/dis/connection to help you challenge outdated assumptions and build resilient strategies for the years ahead. Get ready to test some assumptions that might be holding you and your strategy back.


    Only the first cohort of speakers for ‘Fascia’ have been announced so far… THE ECONOMIST (Tom Standage), GOOD COUNTRY INDEX/COUNTRY WHISPERER (Simon Anholt), MAKE MY DAY (Will Scougal), ‘FREE YOUR MIND’ (Laura Dodsworth), DECISION ADVANTAGE/EX-ROYAL MARINE (Gareth Tennant), FUTUREMADE (Tracey Follows), UNCERTAINTY EXPERTS (Sam Conniff) and many more including TBD's resident SLAM POET Miss Yankey. More will be announced monthly…
