Wise CEOs are watching China carefully, knowing that the China factor could determine the success or failure of their companies in the years ahead. The initial strategy of simply being there is no longer enough. Now, companies need a more nuanced strategy in order to penetrate secondary cities and market segments and to tap China’s vast potential for innovation. Tom Manning challenges the conventional approach, provokes awareness of new techniques, and suggests how every Board and executive team can take their game to the next level, deepening their plan for China and integrating it with their global strategy.

Many of the factors behind Silicon Valley’s rise are now evident in China in places like Haidian, the high-tech district of Beijing. Will China claim its historical role as inventor par excellence? Under-estimating the possibility of China’s ability to innovate could be catastrophic to U.S. competitiveness. Over-estimation will drive paranoia and protectionism. Tom Manning offers a new interpretation of global innovation with China at the epicenter.

Every day, American businesses must decide where in the world to sell, invest or source parts of their supply chain. How do you determine which emerging markets to enter first? And how do you do it both effectively and ethically? Based on her extensive experience in government and now leading businesses through these difficult decisions, Anja Manuel shares her insight and illuminating stories about how to engage local governments and business partners from Bogota to Bangalore.

People and organizations are changing how they learn. We are leveraging technology, social connection, mobile devices, deeper curiosity, video stories and connections, open and massive knowledge models and a desire to accelerate our learning experiences! Learning changes are shifting how corporations, schools, colleges, associations, religions and even political campaigns are sharing knowledge. Learners are expecting a rich set of learning options, personalized to their needs, socially connected and available on any device in any setting. Elliott Masie will explore these key Learning Changes in a highly interactive presentation:

  • Learning Changes & Revolution
  • Learning Innovations: Open & Massive Knowledge – Video on Demand 
  • Learning Together: Social and Collaboration on a Global Basis
  • Learning Everywhere: From TV on Sunday Night to On-Demand Mobile Segments
  • Personalization: I Want to Learn My Way!
  • Big Learning Data!
  • Learning for Rapidly Changing Jobs & Marketplaces
  • Storytelling Drives Change!
  • The Changing Role of Teachers & Experts

Big Data is becoming a Big Opportunity, Big Challenge and Big Learning curve for both organizations and individuals   Every visit to a website, every visit to a store and every business and personal transaction creates data.  Increasingly, organizations and governments are discovering how to capture, consider, analyze, compare and leverage “Big Data”.

OK, so how do organizations and leaders make sense of all this rapidly expanding “Big Data.” The challenges focus on Vast Data (dealing with a mind boggling amount of data); Speed of Data (how rapidly can we gather and leverage data); Truth of Data (it is interesting but is it true, real or trustable) and Strange Mix of Data (blending data from different and unrelated sources). “Big Data” will be deployed by organizations making marketing, human resource, educational, financial and strategic decisions.

Elliott Masie will explore these topics in a highly interactive, visually rich and humor filled presentation:

  • Big Data – What Do We Know About You?
  • Big Data – Making Sense of Random Bits of Truth?
  • Big Data and Small Data – Is it True for Me?
  • Big Data – Security, Ethics and Mental Models
  • Big Data – Silly Data
  • Big Data – Futures and Alternatives

Elliott Masie will present a fast paced view of changing Technology Trends and Shifts that are effecting organizations, education, business, lifestyle and choices. For each speech, the organizers can select the key Technology Trends and Shifts to be the core of the speech. Or, the audience can be engaged in real-time voting of the topics to be addressed. Elliott Masie, with over 40 years experience as a technology researcher, futurist and author will rapidly explore and explain each Tech Trend and Shift – with working examples of near term futures. Here is a checklist (to be updated) of Tech Trends and Shifts:

  • Mobile Devices: The Intense World of Connected People
  • Maker Reality: From 3D Printing to Build Your Own
  • Personalization: The Age of Personalizing Content, Context and Communication
  • Open Learning: Fingertip Access to Expertise Everywhere
  • Using Games to Fail Forward: Simulating the Way to Success
  • Connected Organizations: Workforce Everywhere – Teleworking, Global and Connected
  • Bring in the Clouds – From PC’s to Networks to Shared Clouds
  • Big and Small Data – Making Sense of Patterns
  • The Marketplace of Knowledge and Ratings – Field Sourcing Expertise
  • Nano Technology – Making the Tiny Powerful and Targeted
  • Me and the World of Technology – Your Tech Choices and Decisions
