The communications revolution has not just sped up our lives; it has changed the way we think about politics, companies and even national power. If you are under the impression that this type of revolution is a new experience for humanity, think again. Comparisons with the distant past are important as we try to make sense of the ever-evolving role of technology in our lives and use communication tools and resources from Twitter, Facebook and Skype. Quentin Hardy shares:

  • A comparative look at today’s revolution with those of our past
  • His take on what is happening today, drawn from his university lectures to late-night conversations with CEOs
  • He readies audiences for the coming “Concierge World” where custom business relationships, consumer goods and entertainment dominate

Management guru Peter Drucker called the creation of the computer “the birth of a new basic civilization” in which managers would take on entirely new roles and work would be organized in unforeseen ways. His predictions are coming true as the organization and management of companies such as Google, Cisco and Yahoo! retool their structures aimed at achieving a new level of efficacy. After covering all the major technology players in globally and Silicon Valley, Quentin Hardy provides insights on:

  • What efforts have worked and what has been a dead end
  • Pointers on how communications technologies are used to market internally and externally, winning loyalty and inspiring people
  • A look ahead to what management approaches to expect next from the technology leaders

Arianna Huffington (Exclusively WSB)

The tech advances of the last few years have turned the news and entertainment worlds on their ears, shifting the balance of power away from the media giants and to consumers—and citizens—empowering them to choose and create. Technology is having the same game-changing effect on the political world. In this lively presentation, Huffington, described by Fortune as one of the few people who “get” the Internet, discusses the latest online and social media trends—including how media companies are turning content promiscuity into profits—and reveals her vision of a hybrid future where traditional media and new media become one.
