ADAPT: How Adaptability Has Become the New Operating System for Modern Business in an Age of Relentless Change

Adaptability has never been more important than it is today. The ability of people, teams and entire organizations to reliably, repeatedly and successfully adapt to today’s business environment — an environment defined by unrelenting, accelerating change; one in which new conditions, challenges and opportunities emerge every day — makes the difference between success and failure, growth and stagnation, relevance and obsolescence.

And where adaptation in the natural world is often outside an organism’s control, the readiness, willingness and ability to adapt in the professional world is well within an organization’s control — provided, of course, that the right culture, mindsets and skill sets are in place to foster adaptability.

Based on the Adapt Manifesto, which Greg co-created as a way to align leaders around a set of core principles for infusing adaptability into every area of their organization, this keynote highlights the seven values and 10 key practices any business person must embrace to thrive in the face of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity (VUCA).

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 attendees will learn how you can do the same in order to beat your competition to the future and meet the customer of the future.

Marketing 2025: How the Next Wave of Technology Change Will Redefine What it Means to Build a Brand, Be a Marketer & Win Through Marketing Transformation

Ten years ago, Greg’s groundbreaking book microMARKETING introduced the world to what would go on to be one of 2019’s hottest marketing trends: micro-influencers. And that was just one of his prescient predictions for the future of marketing.

In his latest ‘future of marketing’ keynote, Greg turns his eye to the coming five years and explores the ways in which exponential advances in technology will combine with sweeping changes in consumer beliefs and behaviors to challenge even the most innovative marketers to reinvent the ways in which they build their brand — and their entire business.

What will your business and your brand look like just five years into the future?

In this provocative yet practical talk, Greg helps marketers, sales and customer service leaders understand how they can respond to — or better yet anticipate — the emerging challenges and opportunities presented by artificial intelligence, the ‘blurry’ world of augmented reality, a revolution in human-machine interfaces, practical applications for blockchain, a crisis of trust and the coming shift in control over who owns their customers’ data.

Although I try to post (on my own site or as updates here on LinkedIn) full videos from my keynotes whenever I can, it has been quite a while (not since 2015!) since I’ve refreshed my promo reel.

Shot in California, Stockholm and Lisbon, this new video draws from my signature #DigitalTransformation keynote Digital Revolutionaries, and hits on my common themes of exponential change, digital transformation as a strategic (not just a technological) imperative, the vital role leaders play in reimagining their organization for the future, and — ultimately — human transformation.
