    Bonin Bough Keynote Topics

    Hackonomy 2.0 is a next-level online interactive presentation that demonstrates how to maintain business growth in a post-pandemic world. Although it might sound counter-intuitive, Bonin Bough will show that the only way to combat the economic impact of the recent COVID-19 crisis is to create value by breaking things. Whether it’s breaking from tradition, process, or simply “the way we’ve always done things” this presentation will provide tried-and-tested models that enable audiences to keep their company on a growth trajectory during this challenging time.

    How do you create value by breaking things? In this hour-long* keynote presentation I take your audience on a journey to discover how they can hack their business, their way of doing things, and ultimately themselves. Most think that the word "hacker" sounds negative, but not all hackers are bad. Instead, hackers and hack-thinking are the source of a monumental, positive shift in business, technology, startups and culture all over the world. Hackers can create immense value by breaking things, whether it’s breaking from tradition, process, or simply “the way we’ve always done things.” A new hacking economy – or “hackonomy” – is spreading quickly across industries, from software to hardware, aviation to space exploration. Hacking is even changing less obvious parts of human life, like dating. And, of course, the hackonomy has a huge impact on marketing.

    Talent is the single most important determinant for success. In this keynote I share my experiences from launching the world's first talent accelerator and help your audience realize their potential, utilize their strengths, and ultimately to catapult their career. I guarantee a truly life-changing experience!

    How do you transform traditional formats into breakthrough communications experiences? In this keynote I share the latest experience-marketing tools and the looming trends modern communicators must embrace to engage today’s customers. You’ll hear innovative ideas and learn a new methodology guaranteed to take your visions for greater reach and ROI from fantasy to reality.

    What can large brands teach small start-ups? In this presentation I share my experience from working with ten small businesses during my time as the host of CNBC's Cleveland Hustles. Find out the real stories behind the businesses featured on the hit show and inspire your attendees to apply these same growth-hacking techniques to their own brands.
