Mike Massimino shares with audiences personal stories of inspiration, innovation, teamwork and leadership as drawn from his experiences in one of the greatest and most dangerous jobs someone can have—NASA astronaut. Through humor and storytelling, he highlights the pursuit and achievement of a childhood dream, the dedication and teamwork necessary to train for one of NASA’s most difficult space missions, the determination needed to face tragedies like the Columbia space shuttle accident, and the innovation and leadership necessary to overcome seemingly insurmountable trials when in space and beyond. He leaves his audiences understanding the value of having passion for what you do, of perseverance in achieving a goal, of building a team to meet great challenges, and of creativity and innovation in problem solving. He also inspires audiences with the awe and beauty of space and shares his thoughts on the future—both personal and in regard to the ever-changing and competitive space program.

We’re witnessing the greatest fundamental shift the world has ever seen in the way we organize, collaborate, connect and contribute. Whether it’s empowered clients connecting with your brand in new ways or engaged employees amplifying their voices, the walls that have divided us are crumbling down.

Leading this evolution is a new generation disrupting every industry and market segment they occupy. Digitally charged and hyperconnected, they are rewriting the rules of engagement. In response to this dynamic shift, a new ethos and view of the world will be required by brands today—one that’s more human, authentic and accessible to all.

In this session, Seth Mattison will bring to life this new networked view of the world. He’ll offer new insights, best practice recommendations and actionable tools to foster long-term loyalty and brand preference among the next generation of consumers.

We are entering the greatest period of business transformation the world has ever known. The constant state of disruption we are experiencing mandates a bold new approach to leadership.

This program is designed to help leaders prepare to navigate a new business landscape where the pace of change is elevating and collaboration is the key ingredient to unleashing the innovation required to compete and win. Supported with cutting-edge research and category-leading case studies, Seth Mattison will prepare audience participants today for what is going to be required to compete and thrive tomorrow.

Attendees of The Future of Work Today will gain:

  • Deep insights into what’s coming next in the new world of work for leaders at all levels
  • Unique perspectives on the macro drivers of change and a deep understanding of how employees’ attitudes and behaviors are evolving
  • A new framework to see beyond the fads and more clearly understand the trends certain to impact the business landscape over the coming decade

For future-focused organizations to succeed in the 21st century, a bold approach to management is needed. An approach where freedom, trust and experimentation are not only embraced but encouraged.

The challenge is most organizations today have been constructed upon a model not built for this century. A model based on principles of top-down command and control, centralized power and information. Characteristics not equipped for the dynamic changes happening in the new world of work.

In this program, Seth Mattison offers a fresh perspective and call to action for leadership mavericks and trailblazers at all levels to begin the work of dismantling the rigid fixed structures holding organizations back from thriving in the new world of work.

Attendees of The Shift will gain:

  • Deep insights into the make-or-break challenges and roadblocks that hold leaders back from unleashing freedom inside the organization
  • Fresh perspectives on the changing landscape and management models for developing talent and driving innovation
  • Confidence to challenge the status quo and a clear set of guideposts for conducting high-value, low-risk management experiments
  • A framework to guide their journey into the new world of work

Mark McClellan, M.D. (Exclusively WSB)

Innovation in health care is a long, costly and risky process, governed by guidelines and fraught with regulatory and bureaucratic challenges. In fact, it’s estimated that the cost of bringing a new drug to market is approximately $800 million. And this process requires not only good science, but effective financing and careful attention to regulatory processes to gain market approval and acceptance by public and private insurance programs. Lacking a comprehensive strategy for addressing these issues means that a valuable product may not reach patients in a timely and cost-effective way. Dr. Mark McClellan reviews some of the major challenges and opportunities for product developers and investors, including an overview of key issues at the FDA and at Medicare/Medicaid Services that impact the development and use of new medical technologies.

As our world becomes increasingly dynamic and connected, the classically standard ways in which we work have simply become irrelevant in today’s workforce. Many companies are struggling not only to understand and accept this certainty, but more importantly to identify the key catalysts behind this transformation. Patty McCord explores how demographics, technology and consumer transparency have already changed the way we work, explains why the idea of a “permanent employee” is no longer a realistic prospect, and encourages audiences to look to the future. In this innovative, informative and forward-thinking presentation, McCord emboldens audiences to embrace change and provides critical insight for companies that want to be ahead of the game as the future of work continues to advance.

Denis McDonough (Exclusively WSB)

In this timely discussion, Denis McDonough offers keen insight and analysis of the current geopolitical landscape, with special attention on national security and the threats raised by the increasing role of cyber warfare. Addressing how Russia, China, and other global hot spots fit into a shifting foreign policy landscape, McDonough explores America’s role as the world enters a new era in diplomacy, and the implications for businesses operating around the globe.

Denis McDonough (Exclusively WSB)

With rapidly advancing technology and an ever-growing use of social media by both allies and enemies, the tools used by the government are far from what they used to be. With experience confronting issues including HealthCare.gov, hacks of government infrastructure, and diffusion of the American media landscape, Denis McDonough led the implementation of a more robust presence of technology in the government. As a leader of one of the world’s most complex and heavily scrutinized organizations, McDonough provides insight for businesses on internal and external crisis communications, how to immediately respond to issues from global events to public perceptions, and leading teams and organizations through change while under extreme pressure.

Denis McDonough (Exclusively WSB)

How will increased automation impact the labor market in the United States and around the world? How can the public and private sectors work together to encourage innovation while safeguarding the interests of American workers? How should we think about educating our children and retraining our employees to ensure that they are competitive in the global marketplace? Denis McDonough confronted these questions during his tenure at the White House and continues to explore them in his work with the Markle Foundation. McDonough frames the issues that will be at the forefront of the national and global conversation over the next several years, and offers ideas for ensuring that growth fueled by innovation is positive, inclusive, and sustainable.

Becoming successful is one thing but it’s another thing altogether to become successful at success. This keynote teaches the essential mindset and skillset needed to go from being successful to very successful—the answers will surprise.
