    Greg Verdino Keynote Topics

    Exponential technologies like IoT, robotics, AI and augmented reality, 3D printing, biotech, big data and cloud computing are disrupting our world. All these technologies have accelerated even more our hyper-connected world and are re-imagining every aspect of our lives and our work. Many businesses are facing a tough challenge: either they transform and adapt at the same speed of change or they will most certainly face a very uncertain fate. But the ones that are able to leverage these technologies often see big opportunities that can lead to exponential growth. Greg Verdino, futurist speaker and leading authority on digital transformation, calls these companies Digital Revolutionaries: companies that are transforming not only themselves but entire industries.

Once again, Greg Verdino is ready with his predictions for the future of marketing for pioneers who want to take advantage of it. In this keynote, Greg will analyze the next 5 years in marketing and explore how exponential tech will impact the already changing customer beliefs and behaviours, and how innovative marketeers can use that for exceptional results. This provocative but very practical talk is suited for marketeers, sales and customer service experts and digital marketing specialists who want to understand and anticipate the emerging challenges and opportunities that technologies like AI, augmented reality, blockchain, and increasing customers concerns over the use of personal data will bring.

Based on the Adapt Manifesto which he co-created, Greg defined a set of core principles that foster adaptability into every area of an organization. In this keynote, Greg will talk about the 7 values and the 10 key practices that every leader must infuse into their businesses to thrive in the face of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. Your audience will learn to:

    · Understand how adapting quickly and repeatedly to new conditions is the defining characteristic for modern leaders and their organizations

    · Learn about compelling cases of organizations and leaders that have embraced adaptability and converted it into a powerful advantage to navigate constant changes

    · Learn about a proven method and discover practical tools that will increase organizational and personal AQ (adaptability quotient), which will in turn foster readiness, willingness and ability to constantly evolve and win in the face of changes.
