Speech Topics


Adaptive Leadership

How do successful companies adapt to an exponentially changing world? What factors prevent organizations from anticipating and responding to disruptions? The Exponential Strategy talk analyzes the process of adaptability and how it scales from personal transformation to organizational change. The talk draws on the science of knowledge management and applies the concept of the Adaptability Quotient (AQ) to real world business case studies.

Adaptive Leadership & Exponential Organizations

The ability to respond to change has become the strongest predictor of success. In this session, we will focus on the concept of AQ -­ Adaptability Quotient -­ and discuss what affects our ability to respond to exponential change as individuals and teams. The focus will be on how leaders and managers can enable agility in their teams and remove barriers to adaptability, while building an Exponential Organization that effectively leverages exponential technologies. The discussion will also focus on the concept of Lygometry – ­a key component of adaptive and creative behavior.

Digital Transformation – Best Practices in Future-Readiness

How can companies best execute a digital transformation agenda? What does change management entail in an exponentially evolving world? In this session we will look at real world case studies of companies pursuing transformation and learn from their successes and failures. We will summarize best practices for transforming culture, management structure, and market-facing strategies, while keeping a close eye on boosting the organization’s adaptability.

Exonomics (Exponential Economics)

Exponential technologies have profound effects on how economies function.
