When the conflict in Kosovo was going wrong, Bill Clinton had a message for Tony Blair: “Send Alastair to NATO.” Clinton got to know Blair’s right-hand man in the early days of the New Labour government, when the President was engulfed in scandal, and found great support and strategy coming from Blair and Campbell. As the Milosevic regime started to win the propaganda war, Clinton and Blair realized that until communications were fixed, the military strategy would continue to struggle. So Campbell was seconded to NATO to oversee a complete overhaul of the entire Alliance’s communications. Campbell says the first rule of crisis management is that it is probably not a crisis. He believes that in a decade with Blair, there were only five—Kosovo, Iraq, 9/11 and the war in Afghanistan, and two domestic crises, massive fuel price protests and an outbreak of Foot and Mouth Disease. Drawing on lessons from what went right and what went wrong, and analyzing examples of good and bad crisis management in the private sector, he lays out simple lessons to help anyone who is hit by a genuine crisis.

Andrew Card (Exclusively WSB)

The true test of a leader is their record of accomplishments. Andy Card was inside the Oval Office as U.S. Presidents and world leaders laid out their vision and agendas for their respective nations. He discusses how he leveraged both strategy and execution and the vital skill of negotiation to orchestrate domestic, foreign, homeland security and anti-terrorism policy and how the same strategy can apply to your organization's business challenges. Using his own personal three "P's" of decision-making, Card demonstrates with concrete examples how to forge the consensus so vitally necessary for an organization's vision or agenda:
1. How does the proposed Policy affect people?
2. What Principle does it reflect?
3. Will organizational Partners who are directly impacted support it as the right thing to do?

Andrew Card (Exclusively WSB)

Every day the eyes of the world focus their attention on the White House. The pressure to perform amidst a whirlwind of activity on both a domestic and international level—as well as act as the focal point for handling and managing the enormous responsibilities of the federal government—are staggering. The task of orchestrating and managing the daily life of the White House is up to one person: the White House Chief of Staff. Andy Card draws analogies between his job and the every day pressures of executive-level management in the business world, especially those organizations undergoing change or facing a crisis. Card provides insight on dealing instantly and strategically with changes in perception, changes in the marketplace, dealing with innovation and new technologies, and how to quickly and successfully forge a new corporate culture due to merger or acquisition.

John Carlin, who is equally at ease in English or in Spanish and never speaks from a prepared text, will center his speeches on a man who, like Abraham Lincoln, belongs to the ages, whose lessons and example will ring as valuable and true in a thousand years as they do today. Carlin will select his material in such a way as to maximize the value of his spoken words in accordance with the needs and interests of each audience. For some, lessons in negotiating with rivals might be the key issue; for others, building up a company that has fallen on difficult times; or restoring bruised internal personnel conflicts; or how to blend tactical flexibility with strategic clarity. Then again, some might consider it paramount to learn how Mandela addressed himself to the eternal question of healing race relations. All audiences will be interested, however, in the chief themes that run through all Carlin’s speeches on Mandela: generosity astutely deployed; patient wisdom and bold perseverance; enormous empathy and respect for all people, irrespective of their station in life; integrity—a diamond-hard coherence between what one preaches and what one does—as the engine of all truly convincing, successful leadership.

Every industry is set to be transformed as an era of hyper connectivity becomes the new norm. The result? Massive business model disruption; the rapid emergence of new competitors; industries in which customers empowered with mobile devices control a wide variety of devices that are a part of their daily lives; unique opportunities for deep analytical insight into trends and opportunities emerging in industries; a reinvention of manufacturing, logistics, retail, healthcare and other industries because of consumers that are empowered, connected, and enabled with a new form of lifestyle management that we’ve never witnessed before.

The Internet of Things is real, and it is unfolding at a blistering pace. We’re in the era of connected thermostats that link to an intelligent energy grid; autonomous vehicle technology that is self-aware, and networked into sophisticated, intelligent highway flow control systems. A connected trucking fleet that is self-diagnostic, predictive. Intelligent home appliances that link to packaged food products that automatically upload carb, sodium and other dietary information as part of an overall health and wellness program.

Jim Carroll has been talking on stage about the Internet of things since the late 1990s, when he began using the phrase “hyper connectivity” to describe a world in which “every device that is a part of our daily lives is about to become plugged in.” Since then, he has delivered his insight on the topic to a wide variety of organizations: several global technology leaders with a keynote talk on the future of home automation; several of the world’s largest HVAC companies about what happens when a global, intelligent home and industrial energy infrastructure emerges through widespread connectivity; consumer, food and packaged goods conferences about the impact of intelligent packaging. He has been booked by many leading global health care organizations for keynotes that have focused on what happens when consumers start aligning their wellness strategies through their own personal healthcare infrastructure.

The Internet of Things is a substantive, transformative trend that will provide more change in every industry in the next ten years than they’ve seen in the last thirty. Jim Carroll already over a dozen years of on-stage experience with the topic, and can help you understand the strategies, risks and opportunities that you need to be aware of you move into a hyperconnected future.

To say that we live in a fast world would be an understatement. Small, quick upstarts like Square are challenging the global credit card industry, at the same that GPS based driver monitoring devices are rewriting the rules of the auto insurance industry. The NEST Learning Thermostat morphs from a quiet startup to a worthy challenger to industrial energy device powerhouses. Autonomous vehicle technology leads us to road trains and a more rapid emergence of intelligent highway infrastructure. We’re in the era of the end of incumbency, in which small dominates big, fast trumps ponderous, and indecision spawns failure. Everywhere we look, we can see acceleration, speed, and velocity: and in times like these, time isn’t a luxury.

For any software professional, these trends matter — because we are at the dawn of a time in which “software is poised to take over the world.” That’s not an understatement – it’s a reality. And with that trend, the role of Agile is shifting, from a means of bringing reproducibility, consistency and sanity to the software development process — to a foundation for “what comes next.” It’s clear that the values and practices behind Agile, such as the focus on testing, tight feedback cycles and accelerated learning, continuous or frequent releases, responding to fast change, serve as the backbone of what you need to be a fast organization.  Today, companies like Google can succeed because of their ability to get new functionality out to end users quickly, in order to test the market, or to respond to accelerating trends.

Agile is a great facilitator to help you be fast. Join us as Jim Carroll takes us on a voyage into how the new rules of business and technology are providing for a reality in which the spirit of agility isn’t just an option – it’s the new normal.

It’s a FAST moving industry, with SEISMIC changes underway.

Basically, vehicles have been built the same way for the last 100 years — they run on carbon, are driven by people, don’t connect with other vehicles, and operate independently. The business model has involved “car dealerships” and “car salesmen”, and manufacturing models that involve putting vast quantities of product into inventory in traditional showrooms.

Now, for the first time in over 100 years, massive change is underway. More vehicles will be based on alternative energy sources rather than carbon. A growing number will drive themselves, at the same time that they interconnect with other vehicles. They’ll operate on very sophisticated, intelligent highway infrastructure that will have a profound impact on energy efficiency, traffic patterns, and urban and highway design. It’s a future in which a large number of the next generation of transportation users might not even actually purchase a car, but simply use some type of vehicle or community sharing service. If they do actually purchase a car, they will likely do it online. All this is occurring as the speed of innovation in the transportation sector is shifting from the traditional pace of automotive/trucking to that of the hyper-innovation of Silicon Valley.

These trends promise a massive shakeup not only to the automotive and trucking industries, but to parallel industries such as manufacturing, finance, insurance, urban and municipal services, government roles and economic development.
Jim has a vast list of clients in the transportation sector, with keynotes on this topic for Chrysler, Volvo, Mac Trucks, the Colorado Transportation Summit, the National Association of Truck Stop Owners, as well as several motor vehicle dealer associations. He recently keynoted the automotive financing industry as the featured keynote speaker for the American Financial Services Association. Join Jim Carroll in this keynote as he provides a frank overview of the key trends impacting the future of one of the world’s most important industries, as it undergoes a significant and massive transformation.

Kevin Carroll (Exclusively WSB)

As children our days were filled with productive play. What was entertaining was also instructive. Games of tag were exercises in planning, teamwork, strategy, design, decision-making, creativity, interpersonal communication and risk-taking. Play was serious business in our youth—and it should be even more serious business in our professional lives if we hope to unleash the creative genius that spurs organizational growth. By cleverly drawing from childhood lessons, Kevin Carroll reveals the relevance of play and how we must continue to tap into those lessons for our future success. An innovator who passionately inspires leaders to create sustainable change in their own organizations, Carroll raises a variety of questions during the session including:

  • Are you continuing to strengthen the creative genius of your organization?
  • Do you have the necessary passion and creative endurance to deliver consistent and amazing insight and business ingenuity? 
  • Why should an organization’s business culture embrace the power of play even more so in the 21st Century?
  • How can a business culture that incorporates “purposeful play” impact leadership, employee quality of life, retention and attract new talent?
