I’ve got a tremendous number of keynotes coming up for April through June, ranging from a global leadership meeting for a world QSR company, to meetings with Trane (Ingersoll Rand), Rockwell Collins, the Texas State Credit Union Cooperative, to the National Association of Children’s Hospitals (both of the latter events being in Austin, Texas.) Among many others!
I’m also keynoting a group of companies involved in the fast paced senior citizens housing industry. The keynote description just came out in their brochure, and provides a good overview of the types of things I’m focusing on today:
Innovating at high velocity is vital to turning challenge into opportunity. Jim Carroll believes that organizations that focus on staying ahead of fast paced economic trends can “ride this thing out,” and can position themselves for growth. It’s a fast paced world — and that’s why leading edge organizations are focused on key leadership strategies that provide for a fast paced future.
Innovative organizations succeed by mastering the pace of the new high velocity economy. And in an era of economic challenge, they focus on discovering opportunity! That means learning how to turn ideas into action!
Taking advantage of new continuing care strategies as an opportunity to be pursued rather than a challenge to be overcome. In an era in which boomers will demand more choice in retirement living, customer service strategies become essential, and operational and service excellence become new critical success factors.
As an author, columnist, media commentator, and consultant, Carroll is completely focused on creativity and innovation, insight that is captured in his books, Ready, Set, Done! How to Innovate When Faster is the New Fast and What I Learned From Frogs in Texas: Saving Your Skin with Forward Thinking Innovation.
In this keynote, noted futurist, trends & innovation expert Jim Carroll will challenge you to focus on the opportunities of today and tomorrow, rather than the challenges of the past. Jim’s client list includes the BBC, the Walt Disney Corporation,and Readers Digest Food & Entertainment group, the publisher of Everyday with Rachel Ray.
Jim will bring us customized insight, wisdom, and inspiration to help us achieve breakthrough innovations and absolutely compelling levels of creativity.
