KEYNOTE ADDRESS - NEW day and time this year
Kill the Company: End the Status Quo, Start an Innovation Revolution
Lisa Bodell, CEO, futurethink, New York, NY
Sponsored by Harland Clarke and CUNA Strategic Services
Winning innovators embrace change – do you? What holds you back from better innovating, every day? In too many organizations, we’re stuck in the land of status quo. We’ve forgotten how to think differently, and lack the simple tools to solve problems creatively. The very structures put in place to help organizations grow are now holding us back. So, it’s time to Kill the Company! This keynote is an inspirational call to arms: to start a revolution in how we think and how we work.
The key lesson of this Keynote: if we want people to approach change differently, we have to change our approach. You will learn how simplification lets us achieve more and better innovate. This can reignite critical aptitudes such as curiosity, inquiry, creative problem solving, and more.
Lisa will introduce tangible ways to ignite innovation through the dynamic yet simple exercises in the Kill the Company Toolkit, including Kill a Stupid Rule, Killer Queries, Impossible to Possible, and many more. You will leave this Keynote with ways to eliminate needless complexity with simple, inspiring ways to make innovation happen now!
