The Big Pivot: Innovation and Value Creation in a Hotter, Scarcer, More Open World
(alternate titles/subtitles possible such as…
Doing Business in an Unpredictable, Expensive, Digital and Connected World)

Andrew Winston, a globally recognized speaker and business strategy expert, lays out a new vision for how to succeed in a volatile world. Rising pressures on business create enormous risks, but offer unprecedented opportunities as multi-trillion-dollar markets are in play. The race for the new, clean economy is on, and the winners profit mightily. In a unique and entertaining way, Winston’s talk:

  • - Lays out the critical mega-trends that are quickly redefining “business as usual” such as global demographic changes, intense resource constraints, a changing climate and extreme weather, new expectations from Millennials and Gen Z about how a business should operate, and radical transparency driven by new technologies that connect us all;
  • - Offers many “a-ha” and “wow” moments backed by surprising data about our world;
  • - Describes the simple but profound mindset shift – the Big Pivot – that companies must make to go beyond merely coping and actually navigate and solve the world’s toughest challenges;
  • - Provides crucial tactics and strategies for executives and managers to profit from this new, volatile reality;
  • - Inspires audiences to think about the true purpose of their business and their jobs, to ask deeply heretical and innovative questions, and to connect with their customers in new ways.

 

With concrete advice and stories from the companies like Apple, Coca-Cola, Dow, Ford, GE, Nike, Unilever, and Wal-Mart, The Big Pivot provides a blueprint for creating more resilient, flexible businesses that profit from building a healthier, more sustainable, more prosperous world.

 


Climate Change and Business

What we know, the risks, the opportunities, and what the world is doing. An entertaining and enlightening overview, without too much jargon, of the phenomenon of climate change, including: the basic science and why the consensus on human-driven climate change is so strong, the level of risk from inaction, the costs to society thus far and going forward, the business case for action, and how big companies are managing climate risk and opportunity for profit.

 

Energy Strategy for the C-Suite

An overview of the world’s largest industry and how business leaders can shift their thinking from energy as a cost center to a strategic asset, including exploring how different regions of the world use energy, the fundamental tensions between energy use and climate change, the rapidly shifting economics of clean energy, and the deep interconnections between energy, food, and water.

 

Green to Gold: How Smart Companies Use Environmental Strategy to Innovate, Create Value, and Build Competitive Advantage

Andrew will explore the environmental pressures and powerful stakeholders driving companies to go green. Winston demonstrates how leading companies create business value in 4 fundamental ways: lowering costs, reducing risk, increasing revenues, and enhancing brand value (such as employee and customer loyalty).
