Futurist. Motivational. Business

Based: Canada

Futurist Buhle Dlamini runs his own training and development company, Young and Able, which provides a comprehensive range of services to holistically develop the entrepreneur who works in their own business or in corporate SA – showing them new ways of relating, of succeeding, of doing business and of looking at the “World of Work” in a new and innovative light.

Until recently Buhle was a network associate of the dynamic consultancy TomorrowToday.biz made-up of South Africa’s leading Futurists.

He now divides his time between his professional speaking and consulting work and his role of media liaison and project manager for the SABC’s Heartlines Values Initiative – an innovative TV series on Values. As well as having a solid understanding of people development and human dynamics, Buhle’s natural energy and powerful presentation style insures that he connects at all levels within the organization.

Owning the Future
The future of individual and business success is very different from anything we have experienced before. The accelerated changes in politics, technology, management, leadership, demographics and economics are altering the look and pace of business. Individuals and businesses that are prepared will prosper and own the future while the unprepared will flounder. This presentation looks at what it will take to own the future by using today’s information and trends to project the future status quo. It is delivered in an entertaining way using multi-media.

The Understanding of the Generation Gap is an important part of Owning the Future, while understanding other social trends is a must too for teams. Keys to owning the future that are explored are:
1.   Optimizing Your Most Important Asset
2.   Geared To The Changing Values – Generation Gap
3.   Becoming Future-Smart
4.   Getting Clarity Over Facts
5.   Creating Your Desired Future

It is delivered in an entertaining way using multi-media. Inspiring, eye-opening, practical and full of ideas you can walk out and apply immediately.

Owning The Future is a must for organisations and individuals that are serious about being at the forefront and leading the wave of the new economy. While it gives a very strategic and futurist message, it is also light in style. Inspiring, eye-opening, practical and full of ideas you can walk out and apply immediately.
