Speech Topics

Adaptive Innovation™- Adaptable Business Models for Changing Market Demands.

How do you create greater market value than your competitors? How do you help your distributors differentiate your products or services? Simple – disrupt your value chain! Adaptive innovation, by definition, is destructive in its character, open to a broad base of business models, and must be driven by high performing teams. Teams who are focused on maximizing the current and future capabilities of their respective organizations. In order to create sustainable competitive advantage, companies must develop a relationship-centric culture with the courage to fail and learn from those failures.

Return on Influence™ - Leadership Strategies of Visionary Organizations in the Social Media Age.

Based on a forthcoming book, Return on Influence encompasses the vision and the discipline to reorient the organizations from its current functional structures and line of business go-to-market strategies, to one of a more holistic view of its customers. Social media has helped swung the power pendulum to the customer while many industries continue to get disintermediated. Return on Influence isn’t about Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube. It’s about socially-enabling the organization to listen louder and think faster, so it can respond in real-time to changing market dynamics. And in the process, adapt new revenue models, reinvent itself and grow – its top line, top talent, and top relationships.
