Are you ready to survive and thrive in an age of AI, automation and algorithms? What impact do exponential technologies, algorithms and artificial intelligence, have on your industry and your business? How does your organization turn the potential threat of accelerating technological change into an opportunity to disrupt an industry?
While some executives and senior leaders are focused on meeting near-term business objectives and responding to the immediate demands of running a company, forward thinking companies don’t wait for the future to “just happen”. Smart leaders evaluate what impact the future may have, decide how to prepare, and actively plan for it. That’s why Keynote speaker Monty C. M. Metzger wants to take you on a journey to experience the Digital Future at your next event, workshop or conference.
We are experiencing a tipping point. What we’re finding now is that a lot of the big trends that people have been talking about in technology for the past years are actually translating into real results right now. Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies, Smart Cities, Digital Cloud, Autonomous Driving, Virtual and Augmented Reality, Internet of Things, Drones, Robotics as well as Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Digital Transformation: How to Build a Culture of Change?
The greatest challenge for any leader is not just having technology as a department, but as a muscle. It’s not just understanding the latest technology development, but rather to anticipate the needs in our digital world. The secret to Digital Leadership is actually taking advantage of change, enabling digital transformation to achieve digital excellence.
For almost two decades, Monty C. M. Metzger has been traveling the globe visiting the world’s most influential tech hubs and speaking with their high- profile leaders. From the Bay Area to Beijing, I’ve witnessed, first hand, where high tech’s greatest talent, innovation, and venture capital converge. In the near-endless sea of starts ups and corporate headquarters located in the Silicon Valley, Beijing, Tel Aviv, Seoul, Tokyo, and more I’ve witnessed inventions at their nascent stages— soon-to-be-megatrends before they hit the mainstream.
While it’s provocative to think the real-world application of technology that revolutionizes happens overnight, experience has taught me that remarkable new products and services develop over time rather than magically rain down from the digital cloud.
When you look beyond the seductive headlines, the creation myths, and the conventional wisdom, you’ll find someone who had an idea, worked with a small group of talented people who executed a vision, and gained the loyalty of influential individuals who spread the invention — this entire process can take years. And a small number of high-impact regions provides the ideal conditions to incubate world-changing inventions.
That’s why I am often invited as an inspirational speaker or for a motional keynote speech. And that’s why my colleagues at Digital Leaders are taking CEOs on learning journeys where they experience one of these unique innovation hubs personally and visit some of the most disruptive and innovative companies, get hands on with cutting edge technologies and discuss the strategies you need to survive and thrive in the digital future.
