Reshma Saujani (Exclusively WSB)

It’s no secret that the tech industry has a serious gender imbalance. We live in an era in which girls are told they can do anything, so why aren’t there more women in leadership roles to look up to? In 2012, Reshma Saujani founded Girls Who Code with the mission of correcting this disparity. Since then, she has sparked a national conversation about increasing the number of women in tech, and Girls Who Code has reached nearly 40,000 young girls, 90 percent of whom have declared or intend to declare a major or minor in computer science. With Google and Twitter as backers, and Facebook and AT&T (among others) signed on as mentors, the program aims to enroll 1 million women by 2020.

Drawing from her book, Women Who Don’t Wait in Line, Saujani will advocate a new model of female leadership focused on embracing risk and failure, promoting mentorship and sponsorship, and boldly charting your own course, both personally and professionally.

By 2020, there will be 1.4 million new jobs available in computing related fields. U.S. graduates are on track to fill 29% of those jobs. Women are on track to fill just 3%.

Join Reshma Saujani, founder and CEO of Girls Who Code and author of Women Who Don't Wait in Line, as she talks about embracing the challenge to close the gender gap in technology, and why embracing risk and failure is key to success. Saujani will share how she has boldly charted her own course personally and professionally as a woman in leadership.

As technologies such as cloud, mobile, big data and artificial intelligence gain a foothold in the mainstream of business and entrepreneurship, we are gearing up for the most significant disruption in our approach to how we work, live and learn.

This shift towards intelligent machines will create more value and disruption than the Web/Internet did 20 years ago. Manoj Saxena’s talks describe how these forces are already driving rapid business model innovation and outline how business leaders need to take a different, courageous approach to either disrupt or be disrupted from this technology superconvergence.

Sample Speeches:

Establishing the plan for the company and aligning the company behind the plan creates the foundation on which the organization will function. Understanding the importance of defining the values and integrity of management practices that will further support that foundation. In addition, discussion will also include steps to ensure that the operating processes are in full support of the mission, the vision, and the objectives of the organization.

Horst Schulze (Exclusively WSB)

Creating a high-performance environment through leadership systems and processes where passionate employees take ownership of their work. Audiences learn how to identify the key requirements of employees, customers, and management/ownership. Schulze then shows the true value in utilizing, building, and maintaining all of their assets—tangible and non-tangible.

Greg Schwem knows a thing or two about rock and roll.  As a comedian who has opened concerts for stars ranging from Keith Urban, to Celine Dion, to Pat Benatar to (wait for it) KC and the Sunshine Band, Greg has seen how rock and roll is really a business. Like your business. In short?  Every company and employee has "rock star" potential. Greg shows you how to achieve that potential in a presentation that combines hilarious comedy, live concert footage and a musical soundtrack featuring everything from classic rock to country to EDM (electronic dance music for you music neophytes.) Topics include "Why Every Office Needs a Keith Richards," "Are you Team Taylor or Team Kanye?," and "Don't Turn Your Company Into a Country Song." Rock on!

To be a great boss and create high-performing, happy teams, the single most important thing you can do is focus on feedback: giving it, receiving it, and encouraging it. Radical Candor is a simple framework developed to help you build a culture of great feedback.

Radical Candor is the ability to give feedback in a way that challenges people directly and shows you care about them personally. It will help you and all the people you work with do the best work of your careers and build stronger working relationships. Radical Candor really just means, “say what you think.” But people rarely do this. Why is it so rare that such a simple thing feels radical?

Radical Candor gives your organization concepts, vocabulary, and tactics you can put into practice immediately.
