Closing Keynote Speaker

Embracing Disruptive Innovation

Patrick SchwerdtfegerPatrick Schwerdtfeger
Business Futurist

Disruptive innovation invalidates existing business models. That’s why it’s become so important for executives around the world. Technology is evolving along an exponential curve. Entire industries are collapsing as new (mostly digital) business models provide better outcomes for fewer dollars. Disruptive innovation generally comes from the edges of industries, not the center. It comes from ‘adjacent markets’ often catching executives by surprise. Patrick dissects the topic and leaves attendees with a series of questions they can use to spot possible threats and also opportunities within their business models.

Opening Keynote Speaker

Shift Your Brilliance – Leading Amidst Change and Uncertainty

Simon T. BaileySimon T. Bailey
Breakthrough Strategist

Business change moves at the speed of light. To keep pace, individuals within an organization must raise the bar on their performance and reset their mindset. The leadership skills of yesterday will not carry the day in today’s continually evolving economy. Collaborative problem-solving triumphs over traditional top-down directives. Solution-oriented individuals are forward-looking in their thinking. Forward-looking thinking must permeate throughout the corporate culture. You must shift and embrace new methodologies to survive, compete, and thrive through the ever-changing demographic, technological, and regulatory marketplace changes that affect businesses today. No one is immune to these predictable changes. The traditional winning formulas of yesterday will not hold up to the technological solutions that will continue to automate “traditional” business processes.
