Digital Revolutionaries: How the World’s Boldest Businesses Tap Into Exponential Change to Transform Themselves, Their Industries and the World

From the Internet of Things to the automation of everything. From artificial intelligence to augmented reality. From virtual experiences to 3D printed products. From big data in the cloud to the collaborative power of people in the crowd. Driven by wave after wave of exponential advances in technology, humans are racing toward a “hypernetworked now” that reimagines every aspect of how we live and work. Businesses that can’t transform at the same speed of change will face an uncertain future at best and certain failure at worst. Those that can will see exciting opportunities for exponential growth. Welcome to the world of digital revolutionaries – the companies (and the leaders inside those companies) that are transforming themselves and entire industries. Over the course of more than two decades, digital futurist and business strategist Greg Verdino has not only studied change; he has helped some of the world’s most highly regarded organizations navigate it successfully. In this thought-provoking exploration of the technologies and trends that are rebooting business right now, you will see how the world’s boldest businesses – both digital disruptors and innovative incumbents – are already putting tomorrow’s biggest business ideas to work today. Plus you’ll learn how you can do the same in order to beat your competition to the future and meet the customer of the future.

micromarketing: Get Big Results by Thinking and Acting Small

In our age of information saturation, consumer attention is the scarcest commodity of all — which makes your job tougher than ever. How do you thread your messages through billions of bite-sized pieces of content to reach the right people? One thing’s for sure, you’re not going to succeed using traditional approaches. Mass marketing is dead; the next big thing is indeed very small. microMARKETING empowers you to rethink, retool, and revitalize your marketing strategies to take full advantage of the opportunities created by the microcontent explosion. In this talk, Greg will give attendees the tools they’ll need create a strategy that emphasizes relationships over reach, interactions over interruption, and social networking over broadcast networks. And the best part? While mass marketing was limited to big brands with even bigger budgets, Greg’s micromarketing approach puts powerful engagement and big results well within reach for organizations of all sizes. This presentation draws on Greg’s book of the same name, providing real examples and practical takeaways for audiences looking to take their social media, content marketing and customer experience programs to the next level.
