In Uncertain Times You Have More Control Than You Realize
The COVID-19 pandemic has suppressed our positive, innovative mentality, sending us into a primordial tailspin of trying to survive and quickly restore the status quo. The pandemic will end, but is it possible to make the new post-pandemic normal better than what we had before? If we get past the fear of “what’s next” and become anticipatory, using new tools and the power of certainty to create a better tomorrow for all, it can be.
While the level of uncertainty unfolding every day is staggering, and we can’t seem to react fast enough, it has never been more important to become anticipatory by identifying Hard Trends and disruptions before they disrupt and pre-solving predictable problems before they spread.
Unfortunately, uncertainty does not provide the confidence to make bold moves. Instead, trying to hunker down and protect the status quo becomes a daily task in which many leaders say “no” as much as possible, turning inward to manage the crisis in an effort to play it safe, hoping they can react fast enough to combat what might happen to them.
There has never been more uncertainty than there is today, and it has never been more imperative to get ahead of problems and see new opportunities by becoming an anticipatory leader.
In this strategic presentation, one of the world’s leading global futurists and innovation experts, Daniel Burrus, will provide actionable strategies for seeing invisible opportunities and solving seemingly impossible problems during this unprecedented time.
Post-Pandemic Success Will Be Determined by What You Do NOW, Not What You Do Post-Pandemic
While some industries and organizations struggle with overwhelming demand, others are locked down, working remotely and doing their best to remain healthy and safe, it’s important to realize that everyone is hurting, and with that, there are enormous new ways to make a bigger difference as you simultaneously grow your organization for post-pandemic success.
While the level of uncertainty unfolding every day is staggering, and our ability to react fast enough is no longer good enough, no matter how agile you are, it has never been more imperative to get ahead of problems and see new opportunities by becoming an Anticipatory Leader. Shifting your perspective from crisis management to opportunity management and using the power of certainty as you communicate to teams, employees, and customers can make all the difference.
Now is the time to become a positive disruptor, creating the transformations that need to happen to make the world a better place by focusing on significance over success and discovering new ways to help others.
In this strategic presentation, one of the world’s leading global futurists and innovation experts, Daniel Burrus, will focus on how to innovate when everyone’s mindset is focused on dealing with a growing list of problems as they wait out the storm. He will share stories of how organizations of all sizes started solving seemingly impossible problems, began hiring people instead of laying them off, and have grown their positive impact and influence by shifting how they think about the present and future of their organization.
The Anticipatory Organization: A Proven Model To Predict Change & Create Extraordinary Results
Based on decades of research and experience applying his Hard Trend methodology to leading companies worldwide, Daniel has identified the missing competency: Anticipation.
With his Anticipatory Organization Model, Burrus enables business leaders to separate Hard Trends from Soft Trends. When you learn to analyze and perceive trends this way, it is possible to tap into what Burrus calls Everyday Innovation, solving challenges faster, and recognizing previously invisible opportunities.
Mastering these capabilities will position your organization to be the disruptor instead of being the disrupted — thus creating competitive advantage, and reducing risk.
This eye-opening and motivating presentation will teach attendees the key components of the new core competency—anticipation—and show them how to apply it to their work and life, which will accelerate both their organization’s growth and their personal success.
Accelerating Growth: Leading with Strategic Foresight & Certainty
Accelerating growth requires a new way of thinking about overcoming obstacles and acting on new opportunities.

This presentation is about opportunity management, identifying the driving forces of predictable change, driving growth strategies from the inside out, and taking control of our future.
This eye-opening and motivating presentation will teach attendees how to be prepared to capitalize on the next wave of technological change and:

Leading With Strategic Foresight and Certainty
Agility and adaptability are no longer enough! Accurately anticipating customers changing needs and technological change, provides the biggest advantage. In times of unprecedented change and uncertainty, we need to ask ourselves what are we certain about? Strategies based on uncertainty equal high levels of risk. Strategies based on certainty dramatically reduce risk and produce superior results.
Strategic foresight is based on the new Science of Certainty that will take your vision to a new actionable level by identifying the events that will happen in the future. Mastering these capabilities will position your organization to be the disruptor instead of being the disrupted.

In addition, they allow us to de-commoditize current products and services.
Identifying and understanding the challenges and opportunities that new technologies create has become a key business imperative, however, this can prove a daunting task in the modern marketplace.
In this eye-opening presentation, New York Times bestselling author Daniel Burrus identifies specific technologies that will directly impact you and your industry.

By learning to separate the Hard Trends that will happen from the Soft Trends that might happen, you can accurately anticipate technology-driven disruptions before they disrupt, problems before they happen so that you can pre-solve them, customers’ needs before they express them, and game-changing opportunities before the competition. Mastering these capabilities will position you and your organization to turn disruption and change into an advantage.
Transforming Healthcare with Technology-Enabled Innovation
We are standing at the base of a mountain of technology-driven change within the sphere of Healthcare. Wireless telemedicine, point-of-care transactions, e-enabled disease management, home diagnostics, the virtual hospital, e-enabled customer choice, e-enabled assisted living, e-communities of practice, just-in-time training, and procurement service providers are just a few of the many areas that can be used to accelerate a positive transformation in healthcare.
Understanding the new opportunities that will result is essential in determining a clear course of action.
Technology will never replace doctors and nurses, but it will provide them with more data-driven insights and actions. A combination of data and technology will enable doctors to achieve their desired results faster, and empower patients with the knowledge of their own bodily state. Navigating these Hard Trends will lead you to the future of modern healthcare in a digital age.
In this innovative and thought-provoking presentation, Daniel Burrus guides the audience through the seemingly infinite development of Healthcare innovation. Despite the vast resources and contributions to the fields of science and technology, there is still great opportunity in this industry…which also indicates that there is room for disruption.
