1. Embrace complexity
We’re heading into a future with no simple answers. Technology, for example, has brought about extraordinary progress, but it has also created unprecedented challenges. We need to accept these complexities fearlessly if we want to make a better future for everyone.
2. Be robust and credible
While nobody knows what the future holds, our work is evidence-based and defensible.
3. Reject dogma
We embrace new evidence and are willing to challenge our own status quo. We aren’t inflexible champions of technology, and we aren’t attached to a particular model of society.
4. Be inclusive
Our events and programs welcome people from all sectors of society, and we work hard to make them accessible to a broad range of people.
5. Think big picture
We’re not just thinking about how to increase ROI over the next two or three quarters. We’re thinking about how our wider society is changing over the next 5, 10, 20 years and beyond, and how we can develop and fit into new models and frameworks.
6. Embrace global and local
We don’t offer a one-size-fits-all solution. We bring expertise from all over the world and offer it in service of local expertise and contextual wisdom.
7. Work towards outcomes
We don’t just deliver talkfests. All our events and programs are designed for participants to generate tangible results.
