The Emerging Future: Building Future-Ready Organizations and High-Performing Cultures to Compete and Win in the Decade Ahead

Seth Mattison, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, FutureSight Labs LLC

Represented by Goodman Speakers
 
As we enter the second decade of the 21st century, leaders prepare to face an unrelenting and continuously shifting landscape of change and transformation. Of course, change has always been a reality for the modern-day leader, but today it knows no boundaries, no borders and no breaks. The impact of this can be felt as individuals fatigue under the weight of extreme ambiguity.
 
From ever-evolving go-to-market strategies and expanding customer expectations to an emerging list of new future-ready competencies and new ways of working, today’s leaders are seeking certainty about the future and the confidence to trust themselves to rise to the occasion and meet the moment with influence and impact. Rooted in the research and bolstered by time advising high performers in the field, Seth Mattison helps prepare leadership teams to meet the decade ahead with confidence, clarity and conviction.
 
Attendees gained insight into:
  • The formula for activating the organizational operating system of the future
  • The prime skill for navigating ambiguity and uncertainty
  • The most critical leadership competencies of the decade ahead
  • The new formula for high-performance teams
  • The key to shaping the customer experience of the future

Doc Hendley

Wine to Water: How Ordinary People Can Do Extraordinary Things

Doc Hendley

Represented by SpeakInc Speakers Bureau

Doc Hendley never set out to be a hero.

In 2004, Hendley — a small town bartender — launched a series of wine-tasting events to raise funds for clean water projects and to bring awareness to the world's water crisis. Suddenly this rough-and-tumble guy found himself working in Darfur, Sudan — one of the most dangerous places in the world — and eventually went on to lead Wine To Water from a dream to a reality.

Doc’s gripping story is about braving tribal warfare and natural disasters to encountering fascinating characters in far-flung regions of the world. It is also an authoritative account of a global crisis and an inspirational tale that proves how ordinary people and simple actions can improve the world.

During this session, attendees not only enjoyed from Doc but also had the opportunity to participate in the integrated W|W Filter Build® Experience! From the networking breakfast to a fully integrated, CSR experience woven into the high-energy, 90-minute immersive keynote address, attendees left refueled to the max with inspiration, deepened relationships and the knowledge that they made a direct and positive impact on the world.
