Over the last 25 years, I've had a front-row seat to the accelerating pace of change. From the rise of new technologies to the disruption of a global pandemic, I've seen firsthand the power of innovators and entrepreneurs and the skills, tools, and mindsets needed to navigate and thrive in an environment of uncertainty.
I've helped startups and corporate innovators develop better ways to launch new ideas and compete. My work inside and alongside prominent corporations and the latest startups has given me hands-on access to the process of launching new ideas. I've seen how people grow and adapt to an ever-increasing array of change and disruption. I've learned from investing in startups, training corporate innovation teams, and working with c-suite executives on the changing role of technology, startups, innovation, and the future of work.
In addition to my own hands-on experiences, I've compiled lessons from leaders in innovation and entrepreneurship. Over the past six years, I've interviewed hundreds of founders, investors, entrepreneurs, and corporate leaders for our weekly Inside Outside Innovation podcast. And I've hosted thousands of new innovators as part of our IO Summit event series and InsideOutside.io community.
Seeing all this firsthand has convinced me that if you're not learning and building innovation skills every day, you and your organization won't be able to keep up and grow as needed. You will end up taking the slow, or more likely quick, march towards irrelevance.
Thriving in a world of accelerating change requires letting go of "business as usual." It requires transforming new ideas into impactful outcomes. It requires innovating at the speed of change. In my keynote address, The Rise of the New Innovator: Keeping Pace in an Era of Accelerated Uncertainty, I'll discuss the context of the changing landscape of innovation and offer some tools and tactics to develop better builders, makers, and idea accelerators.
