Disruption Off

Leaders are worried. Businesses are being disrupted at an ever-increasing pace and technological advances are converging to create unprecedented dislocation. Identify what these are and how you can turn them to your advantage. Terry reviews the top 10 technical forces of disruption and more importantly shows the new business models that result.

Utilizing technical forces of disruption, Terry shows our current business models that are created from disruption and how startups are shedding old concepts to create simple models that “own the edge”. The Edge - where the customer is - where we HAVE to be.

As Terry says, “My innovation is YOUR disruption. It is only disruption because YOU didn’t do it!” Drawing from his experiences with several startups and as the founder of Travelocity.com and founding Chairman of Kayak.com, Jones helps audiences turn disruption into innovation.

This fast-paced presentation can help you avoid disruption and become the innovator!

Terry can also address the implications of these technologies on the workforce and the future of work. Additionally, they can also be combined with his ON Innovation speech and Disruption topic.

Terry’s book, Disruption OFF is also available as a room gift or for use in book signings.

 

ON Innovation

Every business needs to innovate, but where do you start? In this presentation, Terry Jones explores the fundamentals of innovation and gives leaders simple but powerful ideas they can use to create a more innovative organization. Drawing from his experiences as the founder of Travelocity.com and founding Chairman of Kayak.com, and now his new venture Wayblazer.com, Jones helps audiences turn innovation from an academic exercise into an everyday skill. The stories from his career and personal experiences not only provide well-chosen real-world illustrations of how challenging, and ultimately rewarding it can be to gather a team and establish a culture that is open to change, he gives audiences step-by-step plans to create it.

In addition to this presentation 45 - 60-minute presentation, Terry can also do a breakout session to follow it up. This innovation breakout session builds on the key points of his speech. The group splits into round tables and each selects an innovation topic on which to focus (topics such as; Culture, Team, idea generation, idea selection, idea implementation....these can be any of the 73 topics in Terry’s book). They spend 20-30 minutes discussing how Terry’s key points apply to their industry and their specific businesses. Terry will circulate and spend time with each team coaching. Then each team (if there is time) or a selection of teams, present their findings to the entire group and Terry facilitates this discussion.

Terry’s book, ON Innovation, is also available as a room gift or for use in book signings. Books can be customized with a company logo or meeting logo on the front with a special message on the back cover for your attendees. (Quantity discounts available).

 

Demystifying Artificial Intelligence

Terry Jones, whose name is synonymous with e-commerce and travel has started a new business based on artificial intelligence. Having spent the last three years investigating and implementing AI-based solutions he offers his unique perspectives on AI and why it is so important to 21st-century businesses.

Terry will show your audience ‘why now’. AI has been being constructed since the 1950s so is today another AI bubble or it today the time that all work will be changed by the power of artificial intelligence.

TERRY’S TALK EXPLORES:

- What are the foundations that ensure that this is the time for success with AI
- What are the components of AI
- What are the myths surrounding AI…things that it cannot do
- Why the impact of AI today will be as big as the browser was yesterday
- How does big data play with AI
- Why AI is the new UI
- How AI will turn the internet into the most interesting man in the world
- Why search gives you clues and AI gives you answers with confidence
- Do you need a bot?
- Is AI only for billion dollar companies? (NO)
- Who will win the AI wars…The Megas (Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft IBM google) startups or corporations?

Perhaps most importantly, Terry will explain the coming ‘battle for the edge”. How the most innovative companies are battling to make it easier and easier for customers to shop and buy anytime using AI. He will take audiences through examples like Google’s Predictive Suggestions, Amazon’s Alexa, Microsoft’s Cortana and IBM’s Watson, and how each is striving to be the most powerful AI platform.

The battle for the edge will reshape how business and consumers shop and buy and will topple businesses unprepared for its implications.

Using real-world examples, Terry shows audiences how AI is already in use and inspires them to create a place for it in their future.

If desired Terry can also address the implications of these technologies on the workforce and the future of work. Additionally, they can also be combined with his ON Innovation speech and Disruption topic.

 

Building Digital Relationships

How will your customer contact you today? In the store, via the phone, on your web site, read a tweet, friend you on Facebook? There is no way to know. In this presentation, e-commerce pioneer Terry Jones gives your audience the keys to unlock the mystery of how to deal with today's omnichannel customer.

While face-to-face contact isn't going away, companies that lack an effective online relationship strategy are being left behind. Jones vast online experience can educate your audience in all phases of the digital conversation from search to social media, using real-world examples in creating Travelocity, Kayak and helping dozens of other companies.

Keeping up with today's omnichannel customer is a daunting task. Terry's long experience in the online world (Travelocity, Kayak, Wayblazer and the boards of ten digital companies) can show your audience how to succeed in this complex digital world.

From search to social, mobile to big data, local to logistics, Terry will cover what you need to know now to keep 21st-century customers satisfied.

These ideas can also be combined with his ON Innovation speech and Disruption topic.

 

The Impact of AI In Healthcare

Robots caring for our elderly? Printing ears that hear? IBM’s Watson diagnosing our maladies? What are the impacts of AI and other technologies in our healthcare and how can we take these disruptions and use them to innovate to our advantage?

Terry Jones is an expert on disruption. He disrupted travel with Travelocity, then disrupted Travelocity.com with Kayak.com.

An expert on AI and the future of technology, Jones has consulted with health care and other industries worldwide on disruption and innovation. He encourages them to take risks testing new business models and that to change the world disruptions don’t have to change everything, many times it’s just one thing. UBER and Travelocity didn’t change a product, just how you purchase it.
