David Wade has seen how politics in America and across the world are being challenged and transformed as never before, at a time when the only thing not moving faster are institutions’ ability to meet the demands of restive populations. Wade takes an audience inside the churn of global governance as we approach 2020, and offers insights into the smartest leaders—in business, politics, and government—who meet the challenge head-on.

In the twenty years that David Wade has been active in politics, government, foreign policy, and business, the very nature of communications has been transformed by technology, time, and transparency.

He’s seen its impact on world events—not just in the United States but also from Tahrir Square in Egypt to Brexit in Europe. From the unique vantage point of a political and policy professional who has both shaped and been impacted by the changing communications inside and outside of government, Wade offers his insights into how to stay on the right side of communicating with your audience in the modern environment.

Today’s leaders face a pressure to innovate—or else perish—unlike any other time in history.  Advances in social, mobile and cloud technology, coupled with fierce global competition has made the business landscape nearly unrecognizable from what it was a mere 10 years ago.

Erik Wahl’s entertaining and invigorating Art of Leadership presentation paints a compelling new portrait for what the successful leaders of tomorrow will look like. He inspires audiences to shed old ways of thinking and “business as usual” processes that are outdated, inefficient and detrimental to productivity. Audience members learn new ways to build an emotional connection to drive future employee engagement.  Erik’s presentation stretches traditional assumptions on leadership. The end results include:

  • innovative solutions to further your organization 
  • attracting and engaging quality employees 
  • new efficiencies and the end of detrimental redundancies

Growth and comfort cannot co-exist. When leaders come from a place of authenticity, curiosity, exploration and purpose, this leads to more meaningful connections among team members and with clients and customers—and ultimately, a more profitable organization. An engaged employee equals an engaged customer.

  • How can you instill a climate of ownership in your organization so that every person feels like they are accountable and responsible for its success?
  • What tools can you employ to motivate the members of your organization to focus on the mission rather than themselves?
  • How can you help create an organization where change and innovation are not met with fear, but embraced with courage and respected as a tool to beat the competition?

The key to building a high performing organization that encourages innovative thinking, loyalty to the mission, effective communication and a relentless commitment to excellence lies with its leadership. In this high energy, multimedia workshop, Waldo highlights the difference between managing people and leading them to be responsible, empowered and confident wingmen! What results is a more productive and efficient organization with superior morale that can rapidly overcome challenges in a competitive marketplace.

Waldo discusses proven leadership principles based on his experience as a graduate of the Air Force Academy, seasoned Air Force officer and combat decorated fighter pilot and experienced businessman

Flying solo? You might think so. But take a good look around. You have support staff and managers. You have directors, suppliers, and distributor partners. And you have colleagues and significant others. Today in our super charged, highly competitive world of constant change, those who build trust and work as a team will dodge the missiles of adversity and win. By committing yourself to excellence and placing your trust in those around you, you can overcome obstacles, adapt to change, and break performance barriers during adverse times. By placing trust in your wingmen and by being a wingman to others, there is no mission you can't complete!

Lt. Col. (ret.) Rob "Waldo" Waldman, The Wingman, overcame a lifelong battle with claustrophobia and a fear of heights to become a combat decorated Air Force fighter pilot and highly successful businessman, Hall of Fame speaker, and New York Times bestselling author. His motto is Winners Never Fly Solo! Through captivating, interactive stories, and high-energy video, you’ll learn tools and tactics to succeed in highly competitive and demanding environments.

Discover how to commit yourself to excellence, prepare diligently for every mission; and collaborate with your team with trust, mutual support, and courage. Be inspired to take to the skies knowing that you have wingmen to help you face challenge and change with confidence while maximizing your potential in all aspects of your life.

Smart leaders realize that the future of their company depends on business design decisions that must be made today. In his ongoing research on the world’s most innovative companies, Mike has categorized those decisions into seven strategic priorities.

When you engage Mike as your keynote speaker, he will work with you to select the strategic priorities most relevant to your future roadmap. Then, during his research phase, he will conduct in-depth interviews with your team, clients or top performers in your industry in order to identify specific case studies that will resonate with your audience.

The seven strategic priorities are as follows:

1. People - engaging the next generation of customers and co-workers.

2. Marketing - figuring out the new marketing model.

3. Culture – understanding ‘Network Capital’ and today’s employee engagement crisis.

4. Technology - re-imagining the role of IT in the enterprise.

5. Innovation - exploring new frameworks for disruptive thinking.

6. Global - building your business to world scale.

7. Leadership - becoming a data-driven leader.

The companies that thrive in the near future will be the ones that not only embrace change but are the first to break the rules. If you could start with a clean sheet of paper, how would you design your company? Should your youngest staff member be making coffee or running your R&D team? Is Big Data something for your IT department to worry about, or a weapon to be wielded by your management team? Do you ban social networks or use them to collaborate more effectively?

Most companies are simply not designed to survive. They become successful on the basis of one big idea or breakthrough product. That early success then becomes a rigid code, and as customer habits and markets change, many fail to see that everything that made them successful is exactly what will destroy them later.

Based on interviews with you and your choices on the 7 strategic priorities, Mike will cover a range of thought provoking issues including:

  • How your future customers will think, talk and transact.
  • Lessons on disruptive innovation from fast growing, emerging markets.
  • How to leverage enterprise social networks to solve real business problems.
  • What it takes to recruit, retain and motivate tomorrow’s employees.
  • How to apply speed, agility and the new lean IT mindset to your technology teams.
  • Hacking your corporate culture to transform employee engagement.
  • Why the multicultural web of tomorrow will be different from the one we use today.
  • Identifying the critical data pivots in your business, the real-time numbers no leader can afford to ignore.

The greatest challenge for any company is not just keeping its current customers happy, but anticipating the needs of its future consumer base. Exposed to a childhood of data-driven experiences, the AI generation will interact, transact and communicate in ways you least expect. But that is only half your challenge.

Generational change in your workplace is also inevitable. Your future co-workers and employees will both test the limits of your management models as well as challenge your traditional beliefs about your company culture. Will you be ready for them?
