12 keynotes that help you build to last

Build to Last, Congress, inspirational

We all know today’s business reality is fast and furious. It is fast, knowing that, according to recent research from Yale University, the lifespan of a company has decreased by more than 50 years over the last century, averaging a mere 15 years today (which is 3 years less than our very own current age). It is furious, as new technologies will continuously drive massive economic transformations and disruptions in the coming years.

That is why organizations should build today to last beyond tomorrow. At InSites Consulting we so firmly believe in this, that we devoted our 2-day congress and teambuilding to this motto this year. Our entire team met up in Canterbury and shared the best of the past year on stage, using the concept of Build to Last as a leitmotiv.

To kick off of this Build to Last Congress (please note we consciously chose the present builD with a D over the past builT with a T), we prepared a short movie remixing and sampling 12 top speakers to add body and flesh to the concept of Build to Last, making it more tangible. The 27’ movie explains how to build to last, through 12 talks from inspiring people from all possible backgrounds through 4 building blocks:

  1. BUILDING BRIDGES, between teams and individuals, clients, suppliers and all other stakeholders
  2. BUILD FOR TOMORROW, by constantly experimenting, innovating and improving
  3. RECYCLE & HARVEST, by using your best work from the past and keeping it relevant for tomorrow
  4. STRUCTURAL COLLABORATION, by setting up long-lasting partnerships with clients, consumers and customers

Have a look at the inspiring short talks here in our recycled Build to Last movie

If you do not have the time for that right now, here’s the short version: 12 one-liners we firmly believe in in order to build to last in the future.
