Guest Keynote: Drive Growth and Innovation

Unleash Innovation

Revolutionize how you think and work. Embrace change and challenge 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.
