Diversity of Thought: Could it be Your Team’s Superpower? With Lloyd Mander
Senior teams are called on to make complex decisions that affect whether their organisations will flourish or fail. Teams with wide-ranging diversity of thought can draw on different experiences, perspectives and cognitive preferences to avoid the unchallenged assumptions of groupthink. They can also demonstrate increased creativity, coming up with alternative approaches to opportunities and challenges.
Learn where diversity of thought adds value for teams and what you can do to boost your team’s decision-making performance. This interactive session will be full of research-based insights that you can apply to your team’s practices and wider organisation.
Our speaker Lloyd Mander is the founder of DOT Scorecard and works with boards, executive teams and other decision-making groups to reveal their potential for diverse thinking and develop the decision-making culture required to realise this potential.
For more information on diversity of thought you can download a White Paper here.

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.
