While I often speak to audiences of 500 to 7,000, including large scale Las Vegas events, I also spend a *lot* of time with CEO’s and other senior management teams in small, leadership oriented events, providing a key message on the necessity for innovation in the high velocity economy.
In fact, it’s long been one of the fastest growing areas of my business: my clients include events for companies seen in the list below!
These are highly customized events : by way of example, I’ve gone in and done a talk for Whirlpool/Maytag on the future of home appliances in the era of IoT (Internet of Things); Disney on the future of consumer behaviour; the BBC on the future of broadcasting; and New York Life on the future of insurance in the era of business model disruption.
There are well over 100’s more with very customized industry talks.
Recently I’ve been filming some videos in advance of these corporate offsite events; these are distributed to attendees in advance to get their creative juices flowing! Here are 3 recent ones.
Great companies establish a culture of high velocity leadership, so they are prepared for the rapid economic, market and industry change that surrounds them. In that vein, I’m often retained by the CEO or other senior management representatives in order to provide a presentation that will help to shape the strategic direction of the organization.
In a nutshell, these talks cover very specific industry trends, challenges and opportunities, based on highly original research, and can often include an interactive discussion that addresses a variety of issues, including:
- establishing forward-oriented leadership skills
- shifting your culture from fearing threat to capitalizing on opportunity
- promoting innovation, flexibility and adaptability
- establishing an innovation culture based on creativity, curiosity, courage, collaboration and change-awareness
- encouraging a certainty culture in the presence of rapid change.
