What’s going to happen in 2019 that will shape our lives forever? Who’s going to disrupt its business? Is technology phagocytizing every inch of our day-to-day routine? If so, how do we get out of this mess? Here’s a collection of bold predictions on how the world is going to look like in 1 year time: how will energy, government, culture, medicine, business, technology, security and the environment be shaped by the most significant trends impacting our world? Desperate times need desperate measures!
Most people would like to have a job, a boss, and a workplace they can engage with, as well as work that gives them a sense of purpose. This aspiration is embodied by a famous Steve Jobs statement: “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.” In line, a recent report by the Conference Board shows that 96% of employees actively try to maintain a high level of engagement, even if many of them struggle to succeed.
How are companies meeting their employees’ requirements in terms of engagement and internal communications strategy?
Thirteen companies took the stage today at Disrupt Berlin, delivering six-minute pitches and demos, then answering free-for-all questions from expert judges. Now that the judges have given us their feedback, we’ve chosen five finalists.
These finalists will all take the stage again tomorrow afternoon to present in front of a new set of judges, who will have time to ask more in-depth questions. Then one winner will be chosen to take home the Disrupt Cup — not to mention $50,000, equity-free. Here are the finalists!
