What does tomorrow hold for your business?
We are lucky to have secured a world class speaker to our breakfast series who asks the ‘What-if’ questions within the global corporation Shell.
We all want to know what is going to happen in the future. When will the ‘bounce’ come? Will it come? How should we diversify our businesses?
Some people do stargazing, some forecast World Cup results using octopuses or other comedy methods. Serious business people look at trends and scenarios.
Wim Thomas is Shell’s chief energy advisor and leads the team forecasting global energy scenarios.
His work is used by governments, academia and business to understand possibilities and uncertainties ahead.
To provide a real practical grounding, our second speaker will tell us how the past helps us make forward looking decisions.
Many successful investors use this technique well. Mark Whittington head of MSc Finance and Investment Management at the University of Aberdeen Business School will argue that you need numbers, but in a different way than before, to think about opportunities to bring benefits in multiple scenarios.
