It was such a gem moment of having to meet award-winning CEO and serial entrepreneur Maulik Parekh, even just through a virtual platform as he shared to us his book entitled, “Future Proof Your Company and Career” during a roundtable conference held early this week. Maulik gave us in depth explanations of the three disruptive forces, drawing from his experiences, to help businesses and professionals prepare themselves for what is ahead, especially as the future becomes more digital.
Through his first book, Maulik aims to communicate how various factors are shaping the world, and identify the pillars of success that one must master to future proof their path regardless of what industry they are in. “In this rapidly changing world, we have a choice to make – either we future proof ourselves or we risk becoming extinct,” Maulik said. “Future Proof Your Company and Career offers actionable insights and proven steps on how you can stay ahead of the curve and flourish in the future.”
Divided into three sections, Maulik’s first book dives into Artificial Intelligence, Digital Natives, and the Gig Economy. Artificial intelligence is infiltrating companies and jobs; The Digital Natives are storming the workplace; and the Gig Economy is changing not only who gets the job done but also where, when, and how. The book tackles how these three powerful forces – nourished by the digital revolution – are gaining momentum and are expected to peak over the next decade.
Written in a storyteller tone with interesting anecdotes and memorable tales, this page-turning read identifies the accelerating rate of disruption and extinction all the while providing actionable insights into how his readers can futureproof their careers and companies in the current and forthcoming era. Ultimately, Maulik wants to prepare his readers for the three disruptive forces that are brewing in the horizon, enabling his readers to achieve success no matter what industry they are in in the multidimensional future.
Just a brief background, Maulik is an avid entrepreneur, serial angel investor, highly sought-after keynote speaker, who over the years, with his popular leadership seminars and workshops, has inspired over 10,000 leaders and prepared them for the increasingly disruptive future.
In his book Future Proof Your Company and Career, Maulik guides his readers, incorporates the three disruptive forces, and covers five ways they can better prepare themselves for the future. For companies, Maulik cited that it is important to unleash the spirit of innovation, infuse purpose, inspire learning among the workforce, transform the business digitally, and engage employees. For professionals, he highlighted the value of thriving in an era of AI, setting oneself apart from peers, transforming ordinary into extraordinary, navigating through turbulent times, and predicting and preparing for the future.
“In the last 10 years alone, we have witnessed mighty giants – niche leaders in their own categories – all but extinct. They chose not to be resilient. They chose not to evolve, adapt, and change to the new paradigm, new environment, new competition. To claim the future, you must evolve multidimensionally. You must evolve holistically. The disruption is accelerating. Only the most agile will thrive.” Maulik shared.
