“In a world of disruptions, some will be storytellers, and some will be storymakers. It is the storymakers that will be the heroes of the future.”
BLACK SWAN THEATRE
At the heart of BLACK SWAN THEATRE is a desire to support sustainable and resilience-building change – both in business and society – so we can plan for our preferred future.
From advisory and incubation to a think-do-rethink tank, we have designed our offering to help organizations, entrepreneurs and communities meet each other in a way that delivers the most impact, growth, and prosperity.
THE AGENCY is one of the arms of BLACK SWAN THEATRE. It was formed to offer strategic support with a focus on illustrating areas where technology, policy and societal partnerships will be necessary in order to respond to constant changes in the marketplace. To put it simply, we help organisations to mitigate economic and societal consequences, capture IP’s and new markets, design new products and services and by doing so, bring strength, growth and resilience to their business.
Our MIND-HIVES are designed to support you to better ask the questions that can define your vision. Coupled with our Think-Do-Rethink Tank approach, our engagement model helps you to better understand and identify Black Swans and build models of monazite growth in current and future paradigm.
MIND-HIVE activity can be applied, but is not limited to, design interventions, ideation and rapid prototype development around both strategy and business development, products and services, paradigm design, discussion panels and keynote events.
We tackle the fundamentals building blocks of innovation and creatively - Vision, Collaboration and Structure. We work together with you and your team to understand your pain-points, eliminate or design friction and strengthen your resilience and sustainability abilities across the organisation.
We engage with organisations decision/policy makers to better understand the current paradigm and challenges.
We use our network to explore and map potential futures where we bring together facts, ideas and viewpoints that will challenge the current paradigm.
We bring action and impact to thought. Supporting the outcome from Step I, we help organisations realize the changes needed to implement the vision. We design internal and external collaboration effort needed for services and products that will drive the biggest possible market growth while defending the company core earning models.
We design a series of experimentation that enable the organisations to “expand the pie” of their core earning model. We design and define new revenue streams, product and services to expend leisure time and maximise profit We help our clients to help their clients by introducing new spin-off business ideas, new companies and additional earning models and brand strengthening projects.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Our FOOD FOR THOUGHT platform is primarily aimed at executive level management and quite unlike anything you have encountered in your professional life.
Give us your best executives and decision-makers, and we will give you the opportunity to reimagine your business, create ideas for spin-offs, and more, while ensuring that your progress is based on the latest insights and reflects the aims of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
We will take your executives to a high-end, discrete and creative location and present them with topic-specific panel debates and keynotes, with one-to-one conversations with our experts and speakers around your specific business challenges over dinner.
Our global selection of keynote speakers and subject-matter experts represent the brightest minds of today and span every conceivable topic and industry.
We approach every topic from three angles:
How will your government adapt to meet tomorrow’s challenges? What should you be discussing right now?
How will the 4th Industrial Revolution affect your nation/city/business or education system?
What implications do the coming changes have on our way of life? Our economy, our social structures? And how can we prepare?
BRAND SUSTAINABILITY, RELEVANCE & COMPLIANCE
We offer strategic business reviews with a focus on the realities and potentials of tomorrow. Our recommendations are informed by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and scientific advances in the field of sustainability and economic development.
We also help companies to understand the implications of the latest scientific technical summaries from the UN and IPCC, so your brand stays relevant in a rapidly changing world.
We can help you shine a spotlight on your ability to THINK, and more importantly ACT differently to other players in your industry with targeted events and experiences that will make a global impact.
Experimentation is the best way to find the right path forward. We can help you ideate, establish and execute community impact projects that make a difference in the lives of your customers, while building resilient, sustainable and improved brand perception.
