KEYNOTE:

Driving the Future – Linking the Acceleration of Golf to The Speed of Business

Is your corporate leadership meeting at a resort, with a little bit of networking on the side? As part of the event, do you need some unique business insight that will align with your overall theme? In Jim Carroll, you’ve found the perfect playing partner! He can provide you with a fascinating leadership keynote that will help your team or clients understand the accelerated future of disruption, challenge, and opportunity! And as a 13 handicap with a passion for the game, he can share his thoughts with you during your networking time!

The PGA of America, one of the largest working professional sports organizations in the world, has engaged Futurist Jim Carroll twice to help them align and adjust their focus to a fast-paced future. A world that involves the 3D printing of customized golf clubs perfectly matched to a player’s stance. Course tee time yield management systems that now rival in sophistication those of leading hotels and airlines. An industry in which GPS golf analysis technology such as Arccos, fast-moving golf entertainment complexes such as TopGolf, and smart clothing technologies are leading the game to new opportunities for growth. One in which social media posts involving Instagram stars and Youtube clips are leading to an accelerated interest in the game. Forget the idea of golf being a slow-moving, traditional game — it is being disrupted to its core and is being positioned for growth through a relentless drive for innovation and high-velocity trends.

In this fascinating presentation, Jim Carroll takes you on a fast-paced cart-ride of a voyage into the new realities of business, by carefully linking the accelerated trends impacting the traditionally slow game of golf to the new world of business. One that is driven by the acceleration of business cycles, chipped away by the constant arrival of new technologies and competitors, and carefully stroked to success through perfectly aimed strategies. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear this fascinating presentation, carefully customized for those attending your corporate leadership meeting.

You will discover new strategies that will lead you down the fairway, bold concepts that will allow for pitch-perfect shots at disruption, and a smooth stroke method to accelerate your team to deal with the pace of change in today’s global economy!
