There is a great deal of confusion around what AI is and what it is actually capable of. Beyond Human decodes the world of artificial intelligence from the perspective of its impact on the core competencies of an organization. It puts in place a roadmap for how one can understand the impact of an era when the human brain is no longer the most sophisticated hard drive on earth. It’s about practicality, not scientific theory. We are standing at a great precipice in human history. It's time to demystify AI and truly understand what it is and how it can be harnessed to propel organizations to their next level of growth and purpose.

Around the world, leaders are talking about the future of work. Gordon Brown believes they should be talking about the future of education—because he believes that the key to developing the workforce of tomorrow is transforming education today. He explains how education unlocks better health, promotes social stability, and unleashes innovation. As UN Special Envoy for Global Education, he is petitioning G20 leaders to unlock billions of dollars in financing for education. Brown explains how education boosts economies, how technology is changing the way people learn, and how to give both young people and those already working the skills they need to compete.

Rising longevity and the aging of the massive boomer generation are radically altering both the demographic landscape and every aspect of the consumer marketplace. Already 50+ consumers account for more than half of all spending and control more than 70% of total U.S. net worth. In the coming years, we’ll see explosive business growth fueled by this unprecedented age wave.

In this provocative new presentation, for business leaders seeking to understand, re-gear, and thrive in the era of unprecedented longevity, Dr. Ken Dychtwald offers a revealing glimpse into the future. He will explore which industries, products and services will dominate the boomer marketplace and are hiding in plain sight:

• What medical breakthroughs and technologies are on the horizon that have the potential to dramatically transform health, aging, and longevity

• How an aging population’s evolving need for healthy choices will influence food, beverage, and supplement sectors

• How a cyclic lifeplan – with repeated personal reinventions - will stimulate demand for new ways to learn, give, volunteer, work, and enjoy life

• How the aging boomers will re-invent retirement and re-define the travel and leisure, housing, and financial services industries

• Lessons learned from four decades on the front lines about the successes of pioneering companies worldwide that have “cracked the code” and created brands and marketing strategies that resonate with this new generation of brand loyal consumers

Ethical organizations are sustainable organizations. Doing good leads to doing well in the long run, while also producing happier and more motivated employees in the short run. The problem, argues Nicholas Epley, is that there are four common myths about morality that lead to misunderstandings about how to create more ethical organizations. Instead of treating ethics as a problem about people’s beliefs, we should treat it as an issue about the systems in which people live and work. Epley explains how businesses, and individuals, can design their policies and structures to ensure they are both doing good and feeling good. This approach offers constructive, concrete ideas for designing ethical systems that keep all of us engaged, effective, and happier. 

The World Economic Forum predicts that 10 percent of the global GDP will be stored on the blockchain in less than 10 years. In terms of today’s global GDP that would be $7.8 trillion. Here a challenge arises: If we do not find a way to connect blockchains, these $7.8 trillion will be dispersed in such a way that its true value is a lot lower. So what's the solution? Dr. Julian Hosp talks about why it’s necessary to connect blockchains without creating a new larger blockchain and potential solutions for mass-crypto adoption.

 

 

The world is burgeoning with new ideas, innovation and inventions that will transform our understanding of energy as a scarce, exhaustible resource. Which global market holds the greatest competitive advantage? What is the next major “game changer” for those seeking to be at the forefront of the future? How does all this rapid change offer you advantages in your household, in the markets, and on the global stage? During this candid presentation, Andy Karsner explores the political and business landscape to share with audiences an outlook of energy innovation that holds boundless opportunity for the bold. Having developed and funded energy projects on every continent—including oil, gas, coal, wind, solar, biomass—Karsner shares his experience and unmatched understanding of the potential for energy to become the catalyst for the next wave of economic transformation.

(Note:  Because of Karsner’s breadth and range of experience, this topic can be customized for audiences to do a deep dive into the elements of their priority and concern, such as:  current finance, investment, trade, policy and regulatory issues, as well as business segments and sectors, including power generation, oil and  gas, efficiency, technology, industry, and manufacturing.)

The speech about how to create a new company. It reflects the knowledge Guy has gained from Apple, starting multiple companies, working as a venture capitalist, and advising dozens of companies. His book by the same name is the de facto standard for books about entrepreneurship.

Through the stories, wisdom, talents and commitment of others, Governor Martin O’Malley learned to forge a new way of governing as both mayor of Baltimore and governor of Maryland. O’Malley understands that leadership has changed from top-level hierarchy to the center of a collaborative circle, and that the public now often learns information just as fast – if not prior – to leaders today. Enabled by new technologies such as geographic information systems, common platforms and the Internet, O’Malley successfully recaptured the trust of the citizens of Baltimore and subsequently the state of Maryland. One of his first actions as governor was to implement the same CitiStat system he used to manage Baltimore. CitiStat received the “Innovations in Government” award by Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government. This new way of governing has now spread to cities and towns all across the United States and is a model for improving the quality of life shared by all and a promise of a more effective way of governing at every level of our government—local, state and federal.



We all know that timing is everything. Trouble is, we don’t know much about timing itself. Our business and professional lives present a never-ending stream of “when” decisions. But we make them based on intuition and guesswork. Timing, we believe, is an art. 

In this provocative and entertaining presentation, multiple New York Times bestselling author Daniel Pink will show that timing is a really a science – one we can use to make smarter decisions, enhance our productivity, and boost the performance of our organizations.

Drawing on a rich trove of research from dozens of fields, Pink will show:

  • How the hidden pattern of the day affects our analytic and creative capabilities – and how simple work rearrangements can improve our effectiveness,
  • Why breaks are more important than we realize and what the emerging science reveals about the kinds of breaks that are most restorative for the modern workplace,
  • Why reaching the midpoint of a project sometimes drags us down and other times fires us up – and how to tell the difference,
  • The four ways that endings shape our behavior and how to use endings to spark motivation, improve customer experiences, and deepen a sense of meaning and purpose in the workplace,
  • How groups synchronize in time – and how leaders can use the three rules of “synching fast and slow” to turbocharge team performance.

Deeply researched, packed with takeaways, and tailored to each audience, Pink’s presentation will leave you looking at your work, your organization, maybe even your life in fresh and invigorating ways.
