Since the launch of the EyeWriter and Not Impossible Foundation, Mick Ebeling has passionately studied the concept of “impossible.” All the modern conveniences we see around us were once considered impossible by people who didn’t know any better. Synthetic fabrics, cell phones, and digital watches (not to mention cars and computers) were all figments of the imagination until inspiration met execution and the impossible became a reality. In this talk, Ebeling dives deeper into “impossible,” the underlying psychological effects it has on an organization, and how to overcome “impossible” so true innovation can take place.

Take a Hollywood producer, a NY professor, a fine artist and a hacker with a criminal record…put them together and what do you get? A device that helped a paralyzed man create drawings using only the movement of his eyes. Collaboration comes in many forms—some of them unexpected. In this talk, Mick Ebeling discusses the tools necessary to become a stellar collaborator, and to recognize the traits of collaboration-worthy individuals for your next big idea.

Industrial Revolution 2.0—it's the next turning point in human history and we’re right in the middle of it.

Industrial Revolution 2.0 has been about the birth, adolescence and young adulthood of the Internet. It's been about communicating, relating, evaluating and buying. From social media to the Maker Movement, this revolution has shifted the way we live, work and interact with one another. It revolves around the newfound global accessibility of making our own solutions. Creator of one of TIME magazine’s “Top 50 Inventions” with little more than $70 of over-the-counter supplies, Mick Ebeling is uniquely qualified to discuss the factors that make this the most exciting time in modern history, and how to leverage those factors for the benefit of business and the betterment of society.

Artificial Intelligence has been a perpetual trending topic for the past several years. It's the subject of some 50 TED talks, hundreds of industry white papers, and enough speculative chatter to fill a data center. Most of the speculation vacillates between sunny optimism about product development and dire warnings accompanied by prescriptions for safeguards and constraints. Into the center of this rhetorical dualism steps Mick Ebeling, founder and CEO of Not Impossible Labs. His presentation has immediate implications and applications for business, education, government, medicine, the arts, and nearly any discipline where technology can extend human capability.

Built on real-world experience in creating access technologies to help individuals transcend physical limitations, Mick's talk defies current paradigms of hype and sci-fi fantasy with a practical, human-centered approach to AI and machine learning. By focusing on underserved communities and overlooked individuals, and by using open-source technology to solve their problems, Mick's company has opened the door to more universal human needs. This flips the script on closed systems and tech for the 1%, pushing AI development ahead through wider dispersal and a hacker's DIY mentality.

Using compelling case studies, Mick explores three levels of technological enhancement to human life, with a particular emphasis on exploiting neuro-plasticity and networks for the greater good. The intent behind innovation and the experience it makes possible, he suggests, are both more important than the technological means by which we achieve it. Always more inspiring and provocative than merely informative or reassuring, Mick connects with audiences where they are and takes them places they've never been. With compassion, humor, and deep insight, he dismantles a tangle of A.I. theory and opinioneering to illuminate Defiant Intelligence as a personal, useful reality, here and now.

The Dilemma:

While most leaders understand their most reliable competitive advantage comes from their people, few know how to get their teams “all in”—convincing employees to buy into the strategy they’ve put forward. If a culture is clear, positive, and strong, then people will believe what they do matters and that they can make a difference. If a culture is dysfunctional—chaotic, combative or indifferent—employees will spend more time thinking about why the people sitting next to them should be fired than getting fired up themselves.

The Research:

Teaming up with research giant Towers Watson, #1 best-selling author Chester Elton presents the findings of an unprecedented 300,000-person study conducted in the worst of the recession for his book All In. Based on this breakthrough research and his extensive consulting experience with a who’s-who of successful organizations, he presents a simple roadmap that all managers can follow to create a high-achieving culture in their own teams where employees are engaged, enabled and energized.

The Result:

Elton offers specific how-tos for each step, and tells fascinating stories of leaders in action that vividly depict just how these powerful methods can be implemented. Audiences will learn: the 3 research-based characteristics of the world’s most profitable, productive organizational and team cultures; the 7 steps today’s most successful leaders use to generate buy-in; and how managers at any level can build a productive workgroup culture of their own where employees commit to the culture and give an extra push of effort.

The Dilemma:

For leaders looking to drive innovation, diversity, and inclusion in their teams, many established management practices are doing more harm than good. Too many leaders are dampening their employees’ exuberance and refreshing diversity with old-school management approaches that are killing their cultures.

The Research:

Chester Elton has been one of the most influential voices in leadership research and organizational consulting for more than two decades, but it’s his research over the last few years that’s garnering extra attention. After surveying more than 14,000 working adults in 2015-16 alone, he has found 5 principles of effective leadership that managers in the 21st Century can employ to great effect, and 5 principles that must be avoided.

The Result:

In a fresh, funny and challenging keynote presentation, Elton debunks myths such as The Smartest Person in the Room, Treating Everyone the Same is Fair, Appreciation Comes in a Paycheck, and We’ll Let You Know if You Mess Up. He teaches audiences how to lead in such a way that today’s employees will follow—including establishing a clear future vision, enhancing diversity, increasing trust levels, and providing opportunity and growth development paths.
