Brands and institutions are powering the rise of a new Resilience Culture, providing the challenges that will force us to recover, cope and transform, amplifying our largely untapped resilience in order to thrive.

Our new in-house presentation equips you with the tools to thrive in this age of self-censorship, hyper-safe spaces and comfort zone culture.

From education and the workplace, to health and wellbeing practices, brands are challenging consumers to explore physical and mental extremes. The reason? To ensure more resilient, purpose-driven futures. Through this thought-provoking and practical presentation, your team will gain strategic tools to build resilience culture into your brand.

In this presentation we examine:

: Hindsight

An obsession with self-care and personal safety has created a generation of cosseted citizens who hesitate to engage with the world. We present the new devices and platforms that are encouraging us to re-engage with responsibilities and self-reliance.

: Insight

Through the growth of Resilience Culture, we’ll examine stress and failure as positive forces, investigate the women embarking on punishing pursuits, and reveal the emerging media platforms helping citizens to embrace and champion alternative points of view. 

: Foresight

Looking ahead, brands will re-instil friction to make their products even more desirable, while mind-moulding solutions will become a luxury service, helping our brains to respond positively to future emotional challenges. We explore how by 2030, collective resilience will become a virtue that symbolises the world’s most successful, agile societies.
