Revolutionize how you think and work. Embrace change and challenge the status quo to drive real transformation.

The fate of Kodak and Blockbuster are evidence that no matter how popular or beloved your brand, its survival depends on your ability to innovate. From CEO and TED-talk veteran Lisa Bodell, you’ll learn how to survive by strategically challenging the status quo and building change from the middle out. Objectively analyze your entire business to identify external threats as well as internal weaknesses—and solve for them. By killing your own company, you'll teach teams how to better pivot, deal with wildcards, and proactively embrace change.

Winning innovators embrace change - do you?
What holds you and your organization back from better innovating, every day?

In too many organizations, we’re stuck in the land of status quo. We’ve forgotten how to think differently, and lack the simple tools to solve problems creatively. The very structures put in place inside organizations to help them grow all too often hold them back.

This keynote is an inspirational call to arms: to start a revolution in how we think and how we work. If you want people to approach change differently, you have to help them change their approach.
