Since the initial wave of digitization, when the first PCs replaced typewriters, Philip has been researching the impacts and changes in the future of work, leadership, collaboration and culture. Over twenty years ago he followed the wave of innovation to the US west coast, where he supported Fortune 500 organizations with transformations around integrating and implementing global enterprise systems.
Continuing his research, he worked with startups, NGOs, artists, futurists and scientists to understand which values and behaviors would become essential for the future. He found that it was often perennial wisdom, sometimes thousands of years old, that proved particularly useful in times of change. When everything becomes more volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA), it is the higher human functions of individuation and self-actualization that provide guidance and enable bold action.
Combined with the latest findings from psychology and neuroscience, systems theory and various innovation methodologies, philip inspiresand consults some of the most innovative and future-oriented organizations. He speaks, advises, and as a partner in LUMAN (http://luman.io)
