The Future Requires Unlearning
Today, we live in a world where “constant change is the only constant.” New advances in technology bring forth exciting discoveries every day. But often lost in this new reality is the fact that organizations must unlearn old, obsolete knowledge and old ways of doing business, before they can seize tomorrow’s opportunities.In this fascinating, informative and interactive presentation, Jack — hailed by BusinessWeek as “America’s Chief Unlearning Officer”— explains why unlearning is a critical skill for your organization.
How the Internet of Things Will Open Up a Future of Opportunity
By 2020, it is estimated that 50 billion physical objects will be connected to the Internet. What does this mean for your business? In a word, everything. The “Internet of Things” is poised to radically transform customer behavior, business models and the nature of business itself. In this powerful keynote session, Jack will not only explain the Internet of Everything, he will help participants understand how they can prepare today in order to prosper tomorrow.
Business as Unusual
As Yogi Berra once famously said, “The future ain’t what it used to be.” He was right. In fact, the future is going to be downright unusual. This begs the obvious question: How do you prepare for an uncertain andunpredictable future? The answer is that you and your organization must think and act in unorthodox ways.In this unconventional keynote presentation, Jack helps his audienceunlearn the barriers currently holding them back so they can unlock new levels of creativity and innovation. He then concludes by guiding participants through a series of tangible actions that will unleash their ability to create their own future and, in the process, achieve uncommon levels of success.
To say that Jack was a homerun as a keynote for our Better Ways Healthcare Conference would be an understatement! We typically have our team provide a rating on their experience and Jack scored a 10 out of 10 – our team characterized him as insightful, thought provoking, authentic, fun and energizing. As an organization, Vynamic truly appreciated that time that Jack took to understand us and what we were trying to achieve with this conference. He adeptly wove key themes into his key note that carried forward throughout the conference. We look forward to working with Jack again in the future and introducing him to our clients in the healthcare industry. We went through a very thorough process in vetting a keynote speaker and Jack was the perfect fit!

10 Unexpected Ways the Internet Of Things Will Open Up a Future of Opportunity
Tuesday, April 29, 2014
A common and popular vision of the Internet of Things—which I loosely define as the connection of billions of physical objects to the Internet through the use of low-cost sensors—is the example of an alarm clock smart enough to read your daily schedule, review the latest traffic and weather reports and then communicate this information to your coffee maker in such a way that you’ll be able to maximize your sleep while still getting to work on time with a piping hot cup of java in your hands. This vision of the future is entirely possible but it sells short the true potential of the Internet of Things (IoT).
