Physicians and hospitals are on the front line of the health information revolution. They will face enormous changes in the pace of health information innovation and many challenges in choosing a path to follow. Health information adoption will change how providers think about clinical decisions, how patients are engaged in their care, and how the financial side of care delivery is managed. Drawing from his experience as an entrepreneur, policymaker and investor, Dr. Brailer will illuminate how physician or hospital audiences can best develop health IT strategy, navigate through complex policy changes and use information technology to their best advantage. Key topics include:

  • Understanding health information technology policy 
  • Investing in health information technology 
  • Bringing physicians and patients into the health information revolution 
  • Choosing vendors and partners to make information technology an asset

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.

Social media is the latest way technology has bridged communication gaps and brought people together from all walks of life. A former public relations executive, Brown was an early adopter of Twitter and other online networking opportunities—she saw a way to harness social media for social good: to build an online network focused on the human rights issues of our times. Brown’s online millions are following more than a person; they’re joining a conversation about social justice. She discusses with audiences how the online, collaborative community can network their passion and bring about positive change. Emerging technology is changing more than the way we communicate, it is changing the way we interact with and care for others.

Agility and adaptability are no longer enough! Accurately anticipating customers changing needs, as well as technological changes, provides the biggest advantage. In times of unprecedented change and uncertainty, we need to ask ourselves what are we certain about? Strategies based on uncertainty equal high levels of risk. Strategies based on certainty dramatically reduce risk and produce superior results. Strategic foresight is based on the new science of certainty that will take your vision to a new actionable level by identifying the events that will happen in the future. Mastering these capabilities will position your organization to be the disruptor instead of being the disrupted.

Over the past three decades, New York Times best-selling author Daniel Burrus has established a worldwide reputation as a visionary thought leader for his exceptional record of accurately predicting how technological, social, and business forces are converging to create enormous, untapped opportunities. Based on his revolutionary method of identifying hard trends from soft trends, and linear changes from cyclical changes, attendees learn how to anticipate and capitalize on new opportunities, as well as predict problems, long before they happen. In addition, they will learn how to use the new tools and rules of leadership to accelerate profitable growth.

Daniel Burrus’ influence is highly regarded in business, innovation, and leadership worldwide. He has authored six books including The New York Times and Wall Street Journal best seller Flash Foresight, and has delivered over 2,700 keynote speeches. Daniel is one of the most influential leaders on LinkedIn and has over a million readers of his weekly blogs. He is a strategic advisor to executives from many of the Fortune 500 and has founded and managed six businesses, three of which were national leaders in the U.S. within the first year.

  • Business Process Transformation: The Big Ideas That are Changing Everything
  • Technology-Enabled Innovation: Creating and Sustaining Competitive Advantage
  • Using Hard Trends to Transform: How We Market and Sell
  • Accelerating Retail Sales: Using Hard Trends to Drive Growth
  • Transforming Healthcare with Technology-Enabled Innovation
  • Flash Foresight: Seven Radical Principles That Will Transform Your Business
  • Transforming Education: Using Technology to Accelerate Learning

If you want to jump ahead of the competition—at low risk to your organization—forget agility. Forget crisis management. The main skill you need to thrive in a business environment marked by hyperchange and uncertainty is the ability to accurately anticipate the future. This may seem impossible. It’s not!

Daniel Burrus is one of the world’s leading technology forecasters and innovation experts. He is globally recognized for his exceptional 30+ year record of accurately predicting how technological, social, and business forces converge to create untapped opportunities. Based on decades of research and experience applying his hard trend methodology to leading companies worldwide, he has identified the missing competency: anticipation.

With the Anticipatory Organization model, Burrus enables business leaders to identify the hard trends that will happen, predict disruptions before they disrupt, and capitalize on emerging opportunities.

Daniel Burrus uses illustrative examples to teach attendees how to separate HARD TRENDS—trends that will happen—from SOFT TRENDS—trends that might happen. When you learn to analyze and perceive trends this way, it is possible to tap into what Burrus calls EVERYDAY INNOVATION, solving challenges faster, and recognizing previously invisible opportunities.

This eye-opening and motivating presentation will teach attendees the key components of the new core competency—anticipation—and show them how to apply it to their work and life, which will accelerate both their organizations’ growth and their personal success.

Mom always told us not to talk to strangers, but are there really any strangers today? Five years ago it was unthinkable to flag down a random car and hop in for a ride, but today, with the use of technology, we don’t hesitate in sharing rides with people we don’t know. We are willing to hire a handyman through an app, such as TaskRabbit, and we are renting out rooms in our own houses to people we’ve never met before. How did the sharing economy begin and what will it evolve to next? In this dynamic speech, Busque will share her story of starting TaskRabbit and why 2008 was a pinnacle for the beginning of the sharing economy. Over the last 8 years, this new trend has evolved into mainstream adoption and continues to grow and scale in new ways that are changing the future of work. Busque will explore how businesses, large and small, will need to evolve to support this new fragmented workforce, and how, despite the skeptics, providing more flexibility and entrepreneurship in our work environments will drive innovation, support diversity, and ultimately translate to stronger, longer lasting companies.

Are you ready for AI economy? Artificial intelligence is fast reshaping business and culture. Machine learning, machine intelligence, neural networks--The rise of thinking machines, from robots to virtual bots is creating new jobs and changing how companies compete. We are fast embracing a world where AI may become smarter then humans sooner then we think.

Amazon is the elephant in every industry room. They will challenge and disrupt your business model, and shake your belief in the future to the core.

Why not change that before it changes you? Don’t wait for Amazon to disrupt you – disrupt yourself and disrupt Amazon first! As we witness the Amazonification of industries, deep insight into this massive-but-cheetah-like-elephant is critical, a fast strategy is required. 

Futurist Jim Carroll has a key message: Don’t compete — transform! When Amazonian scale disruption occurs, you can’t hope to complete on price, the sophistication of the online interaction, or the other areas in which Amazon (and similar disruptors) clearly excel. You need a different proposition, different ideas and a different strategy. In many cases, this will come about through an implicit decision to compete based on the unique value you can bring to the relationship – service, support, personal interaction and other factors. In doing so, you specifically choose to not compete based on a race to the bottom and price.

Futurist Jim Carroll has headlined ‘Amazonificaiton strategies’ at a wide variety of corporate leadership meetings and association events in the medical, dental and veterinary industries; in the global optometric industry; in the agricultural dealer market, in the home renovation sector, and many more. He has provided deep insight on the transformative strategies and mindset that needs to be pursued.

The acceleration of disintermediation via Amazon is a cruel reality of our modern day world. Think about the business model of a a group of agricultural dealers who sell products to farmers. The simplistic view is that they buy products from the manufacturer, and then sell them to the farmer, with an obvious markup in price. Amazon could do this (and will) with a more sophisticated online system, and avoid the cost of the markup, thereby offering a lower cost alternative. How to compete? Become an invaluable partner to the farmer in terms of advice, expertise and personal support for new initiatives, products and ideas. 

In the era of Amazon, you can’t hope to compete on price — because you will watch your business disappear! Futurist and innovation expert Jim Carroll outlines the key trends, strategies and opportunities to be pursued in the ear of Amazonian acceleration!
