Leading and Winning the Business (R)evolution

What can we learn from some of the colossal mistakes we have seen a number of incumbent companies make? How do we survive and thrive in an era of digital Darwinism? And how did everything change so quickly?

Brian presents this exciting and poignant keynote in a just-in-time session to ensure your business remains relevant in an ever-changing future. With a magnified focus on your specific industry, Brian will unpack:

  • The state and future of digital transformation and how it’s changing businesses at the very core
  • How to identify, lead and empower business mavericks and change-makers within your organization and across your industry
  • How incumbent companies are making mistakes and what you can do to avoid sealing your own fate in the same way
  • What you can do personally to change things for the better in your career and for your company

 

Innovation in Customer Experience

X marks the spot! Brian Solis knows what it takes to be innovative. As the principal analyst studying technology and its impact on and after numerous success stories at the forefront of Fortune 500 companies and the tech/startup world there is no speaker better than Brian to welcome you to a new era of business.

In this progressive and captivating keynote Brian explains why the future of business is experiential, sharing his insider knowledge on how to create meaningful experiences.

Audiences will discover:

  • What’s really at the heart of a great experience
  • How experiences become memories and how to connect to people’s hearts and minds
  • From Brand Experience (BX) to Customer Experience (CX) to User Experience (US) X: How to design experiences that start at the top and change how companies work, sell, and serve
  • How to design customer experiences that matter in a time of what Brian calls, "accidental narcissism"
  • How micro-moments are reshaping the new customer journey in each of the four moments of truth

 

Breaking away from rigid processes and risk-averse cultures.

“But this is the way it’s always been done.” - Said no successful entrepreneur ever.

An idea is just an idea until it’s put into action and brought to life by people who share your vision and passion for changing the world. A world-changing idea has to not only be innovative; it has to disrupt the status quo. The challenge is to help people take their ideas shape them into something powerful. All too often though, organizations limit their ideas to that of iteration versus innovation. There’s a difference…

Iteration – Doing old things better
Innovation – Doing new things that create new value
Disruption – Doing new things that make the old things obsolete. 

In an entertaining, insightful and encouraging way Brian will:

  • Inspire the audience to shift perspective and learn to unlearn
  • Help the audience bring ideas to life that are innovative and maybe even disruptive
  • Teach and motivate people to believe in their own ideas and intuitions to challenge business as usual and unlock new opportunities

 

Escape from the dark side of distractions to live a better life

Somewhere along the way, we have become distracted. Maybe we don’t realize the extent to which our everyday rituals, favorite devices and apps, or where we focus our attention is affecting us. Reading Lifescale is like holding up a mirror, and revealing a new you, as your obsessive relationship with distractions melts away. From simple first steps to reclaiming your attention, to becoming more satisfied, inspired, and creative, this book will lead you through your own journey of lifescaling: redefining success on your own terms.

Lifescaling is about:

  • Being present and mindful in your physical life and your digital life
  • Breaking the cycle of instant gratification to think critically and creatively
  • Living and working in the now, without mentally wandering elsewhere, worrying about missing out, or waiting impatiently for the next thing
  • Wasting less time on distractions, so you can spend more time doing what you love with whom you love
  • Fostering creativity and imagination through powerful and life-changing daily rituals
