Strategic Thinking with Doug Maarschalk
Wednesday 21st February 2024
Navigating uncertainty in business is a key challenge for both teams and individuals. It’s about having a clear direction and remaining flexible enough to adapt to new situations.
In this rapidly changing world, the ability to adjust and innovate is crucial. Our focus in this Future of Business Christchurch session will be on exploring how to set boundaries that enable safe exploration of new opportunities, without being constrained by rigid plans based on outdated assumptions of predictability.
Join us as we delve into these vital questions and discover effective strategies for steering through uncertainty in the business world as individuals and teams. You’ll also find out what broccoli and Adaptive Strategy have in common!
Doug Maarschalk, Director and Principal Consultant at AGLX Asia-Pacific will facilitate this highly interactive session. Doug brings a wealth of experience from his work with a diverse array of New Zealand business leaders. He’ll share his insights on developing adaptive strategies and a practical toolkit for navigating the complex business landscape. Whether you are looking to enhance your own strategic thinking, or you are leading a group of people, this session will provide valuable insights for you.

What is Future of Business?
Started in 2019 by Peter McKaskell, Future of Business began by bringing together Canterbury business leaders and executives for networking and sharing of ideas. Peter and the founding members could see the seeds of greatness and innovation within our business community and economy. We have all seen huge amounts invested in Canterbury over the last 10 years and one of the things it has given us is a platform to grow world leading businesses in our own “backyard”. Peter’s vision: a forum where leaders can share ideas, brainstorm, and collaborate. To provide an encouraging environment that supports economic growth for our businesses, our community and our region.
However, after news of a serious health challenge, Peter put the events on ice.
2020 has brought its own challenges; lockdowns; a first wave of redundancies; more expected and a strange new normal that is anything but normal.
Now more than ever is the time to kickstart Future of Business events. Wherever possible, events will be face to face, networking, speakers and panel discussions.
So, whether you are pivoting, transforming, kickstarting or simply keen to share ideas with like-minded business-people, Future of Business is the place for you.
Future of Business is not membership-based but thrives on repeat attendance. Join us for our next event (or two) and see for yourself how you can take part in the future of business in Canterbury.
