The Call To Innovate

Abstract:

We see and experience evidence that the world is rapidly changing. These shifts are impacting our working, social and personal lives. This engaging and fun talk is geared towards students (we all SHOULD be students of life & learning!), and explains how to not just survive - but thrive and contribute!

The talk begins with a succinct review of the forces driving these changes. We then learn the ways in which these drivers can be controlled and leveraged - thereby allowing each of us to not only keep pace with the changes, but to actually instead position ourselves for success in the evolving landscape.

Compelling real-world case studies are used to show what’s possible when someone understands the drivers impacting their world, and then begins to execute a plan to reinvent their work and self. A brief amount of time is spent on the downside when these drivers are ignored.
