“Why the future is better than we think” by Mariana Bozesan

During the 56. MMM-Congress, one of the biggest German trade and consumption industry gatherings attended by more than 700 participants, Dr. Mariana Bozesan delivered the keynote speech entitled “Why the future is better than we think.” She began her speech by uncovering the driving force behind today’s complexity, namely exponential growth in technology. She elaborated, furthermore, on the 6 Ds of Digitalization (Deception, Disruption Dematerialization, Demonetization, and Democratization) as well as their implication for the future of transportation, energy, finances, manufacturing, health, employment, as well as Artificial Intelligence. The highlight of her speech was the future outlook on what each and every one of us can do. The answer to this question helps us uncovers our own Moonshot, our life’s purpose and how we can bring it into the world.

Dr. Bozesan shared her own Moonshot[1] – The Investment Turnaround, the Investmentwende, which she invoked together with the presidents of the Club of Rome and 100 investors on October 16th, 2018. Her goal is to help transform the investment industry become integrally sustainable by moving from the current for-profit-only measurement of success toward her 6P, the “Parity of People, Planet, and Profit – with Passion and Purpose” for the greater good.

Dr. Bozesan´s speech summarized in a cartoon



[1] “Moonshot thinking is when you pick a huge problem, like climate change, and set out to create a radical solution to the problem. To make this happen you have to abandon the idea of creating a 10% improvement. Instead, the focus is a solution that will bring tenfold (or 10x) improvements, or solve it altogether.” (Singularity University, 2018)
