What do goat milk, spiders, and fishing lines have in common? Fiber optics and concrete? Ant hills and architecture? Most of us would assume nothing. But out of each of these seemingly random combinations have come radical innovations that have created whole new fields. In this talk, Frans Johansson takes us on a fascinating journey to The Intersection™—a place where ideas from different fields and cultures meet and collide, ultimately igniting an explosion of extraordinary new innovations. Through the Medici principles of innovation, see how companies become global leaders; how products and services yield huge margins; and how the most unlikely of people have outdone the experts in their own fields.

Johansson demonstrates how his Renaissance ideas have driven regional growth throughout the world, such as medical City in Orlando, startup incubators in Sweden, the economy of Trinidad and Tobago - and how you can do the same in your region.

Johansson calls for a complete overhaul of how an organization delivers on its diversity and inclusion promise. He outlines the steps an organization must take to turn diversity and inclusion into a strategic force. It is a perfect follow-up talk after Diversity Drives Innovation.

In this keynote, presented in his charismatic style, The Shark, Daymond John, takes audience members on an inspiring, emotional rollercoaster ride. They will hear, first-hand, how a man, with no formal business training whatsoever, went from driving cabs and waiting tables at Red Lobster to creating a global fashion empire with retail sales exceeding four billion dollars to date, and a starring role on ABC’s hit reality business show, Shark Tank. Daymond entertains and awes audience members with true-life tales of his incredible successes and numerous failures. Equally important, however, he motivates, inspires, and teaches them how to set and go after their own goals with newfound focus and determination.

Audience members will be galvanized as they realize they have been setting goals for themselves all of their lives—whether they realized it or not! What’s more, to their surprise, many attendees will learn that the goals they have been setting have been self-destructive.

Unlike some “motivational speakers”, rather than spitting-out tiresome “I can make it, so can you” clichés, Daymond shares the exact goal-setting strategies that he attributes to his success and teaches audience members how to incorporate them into their endeavors. This keynote will challenge attendees to exercise their brains in a way that cultivates a positive, goal-setting mindset.

This keynote is absolutely terrific for: salespeople, students, business owners, aspiring entrepreneurs and just about anyone who wants more out of their personal and/or professional endeavors.
