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?

How others see us begins with how we see ourselves. This powerful presentation will challenge beliefs that can undermine effectiveness and stifle leadership potential. Margie will engage audience members as she explores how even those who don’t see themselves as “natural leaders” can identify and rewrite self-limiting stories, re-define the leader they are, and re-ignite the results they achieve. She will help them over-come fears and doubts, and find their courage to create a more compelling vision, confront the forces that threaten to undermine it, and take the necessary risks to change what no longer serves the best interests of their team or organization. She will empower them with powerful insights to become the kind of leader others can trust to speak the truth, stand firm in a storm and choose the right path over the expedient one.

Your audience will leave feeling more purposeful in what they do, more passionate about why they do it, and more inspired to create positive change with greater clarity, confidence and courage. Topics covered include:

  • The importance of leading from a foundation of robust integrity
  • The 3 core elements of trust (and how to rebuild it if damaged)
  • Why self-awareness and EQ are critical to success—and how it’s used to expand a leader’s circle of influence
  • The 5 fundamental conversations in which a leader must engage—with him/herself and with others
  • How to apply the Ontological coaching framework to improve collaboration around goals, communication and influence within a team or across an organization.

Successful people know how important it is to have excellence in the workplace. In a fascinating seminar based upon his personal principles, Pat provides the ingredients of his recipe for quality. This fast-moving series of ideas and techniques offers the practical steps that can transform any organization into a quality organization. As one of Pat’s most requested talks, these keys to quality can be used by anyone to enhance not only their work life, but their work environment as well.

Brett Williams’ keynote helps close the gap in language, perception and understanding between senior executives and the technical people charged with defending our networks.  He is an expert at identifying the key technical cybersecurity issues and translating those issues into the language of business.  Brett equips his audience to ask the CIO and CISO tough questions, and more importantly, to understand the answers.  Each keynote is customized to the audience and includes a discussion of the current threat environment, costs associated with a breach, an executive primer on current cyber defense techniques and suggestions on how to identify the essential elements of a good cyber defense program.  Every participant will walk out the door with specific action items they can immediately put into action.

We’ve all had experience with two dramatically different types of leaders. The first type drains intelligence, energy and capability from the people around them and always needs to be the smartest person in the room. These are the idea killers, the energy sappers, the diminishers of talent and commitment. On the other side of the spectrum are leaders who use their intelligence to amplify the smarts and capabilities of the people around them. When these leaders walk into a room, light bulbs go off over people’s heads, ideas flow and problems get solved. These are the leaders who inspire employees to stretch themselves and get more from other people. These are the Multipliers. And the world needs more of them, especially now when leaders are expected to do more with less.

In this highly engaging talk, Liz Wiseman will share the research behind Multipliers and illustrate the resoundingly positive and profitable effect these Multipliers have on organizations—how they get more done with fewer resources, develop and attract talent and cultivate new ideas and energy to drive organizational change and innovation. She’ll introduce the five disciplines that distinguish Multipliers from Diminishers and provide practice tips for leading like a Multiplier.

What could your organization accomplish with access to all the intelligence that sits inside it?
