With data on the critical trends expected over the next fifty years, Rohit helps organisations develop strategies that allow them to benefit from change. The author of Designing Your Future explains how we can identify shifts, exploit breakthroughs and create future- focused leaders.

In ‘Winning in a Downturn - How to Survive and Thrive in Turbulent Times’ Rohit draws on a major ongoing research programme to offer a clear and pragmatic analysis of the current economic downturn, robust scenarios for how the situation could play out and then provides practical and inspiring ideas and insights on how to respond.
