LEWIS prism

The LAB forecasts business, political, economic and cultural trends. It was founded by Chris Lewis and Dr. Pippa Malmgren, a former US Presidential adviser and one of the most influential global economists.

The LAB was inspired by two books, Dr. Malmgren’s book Signals: How Everyday Signs Can Help Us Navigate the World’s Turbulent Economy, which helps leaders spot trends and achieve greater situational awareness, and Too Fast To Think, the best-selling book by Chris Lewis. In this, he speculates about why a world dominated by analytical thinkers is being surprised by events.

The world is in the grip of a volatility. This is breeding short-term thinking and inefficiencies. There’s never been a better time for people to get together to discuss and build a global narrative.

The LAB blends drill down with look across thinking. It holds invitation-only round tables quarterly for leaders from a variety of backgrounds including scientists, politicians, economists, artists, academics and military leaders.

The LAB is the basis for the book from Kogan Page: The Leadership LAB – Understanding Leadership in the 21st Century
