Describing the driving objective of his work with the FCC as “moving private capital from the sidelines to the streets,” former FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski knows all too well the challenge and importance of leveraging innovation to keep America in the race to stay competitive on the global stage. From developments in the mobile and app economy to pushing broadband access and increasing wireless, Genachowski’s leadership has helped the United States advance in the disruptive technological innovations that are unleashing opportunities both at home and abroad. As network, device and application development are at an all-time high, the implications for job creation and investments make technology the core of our future economy with game-changing influence on areas like health care, education and cyber security, as well as the U.S. and global economy overall. With a vibrant and youthful energy fueled by a passionate devotion to progress, Genachowski shares with audiences a behind-the-scenes look at the rapidly evolving world of technology and the momentous advances that are occurring today. Audiences will gain from Genachowski:

  • An insider’s perspective on the critical steps the U.S. took to become an international hub of technological innovation and why such continued commitment matters
  • What new innovations are on the horizon
  • What is required of the U.S. to maintain a competitive edge in the global arena

How far we will go as a society is directly related to the technological advances we make and the policies we put in place to secure such progress. No one knows this better than former FCC chairman, investor and entrepreneur, Julius Genachowski. While chairman, Genachowski kept his sights on the future and used his corporate savvy to help move the U.S. from laggard to leader in technological innovation and broadband communications, driving the U.S. to a day where, in his words, “bandwidth is abundant and broadband is ubiquitous, where innovation and investment flourish.” By recognizing the transformative impact of technology on the economy and society, Genachowski made numerous groundbreaking moves to secure progress and growth. In this enlightening presentation, Genachowski discusses the future of mobile, broadband and technology and lends his unparalleled insights to help organizations understand the complex picture of digital technology, its effects on many of the world’s most vexing problems and what precisely can be done to secure a stable and profitable upward momentum.

Given his breadth and depth of experience leading organizations in both the public and private sector, Julius Genachowski can also address:

  • Cyber Security—How to Stay Ahead and What It Means to the Future of America
  • Leadership in Complex Organizations
  • The Role of Public Policy in Driving Private Investment and Innovation
  • Technology and the Future of Education
  • How Innovation Will Drive Change in Health Care

Changing a culture is near impossible—and a key reason as to why so many great companies fail. So was the case of corporate stalwart IBM, whose lumbering corporate culture held back innovation and threatened the financial stability of the once-great technology company. By rewarding teamwork, embracing a take charge culture and improving employee morale with the introduction of pay for performance, Lou Gerstner’s transformational leadership unleashed one of the most improbable turnaround story’s in corporate history. In a moderated question and answer format, Gerstner shares his lessons from IBM and shows how today’s business leaders can learn from the challenges and issues he faced at the helm of one of the most recognized companies in the world. Gerstner invites audiences to participate in a discussion about the most pressing business issues their organization currently faces, providing candid insight from his three decades of experience as one of the most successful and effective CEOs in modern times.

Renowned for his highly accessible and common sense take on complex issues around change and human leadership, Richard Gerver brings his pragmatic, insightful and people centric experiences to the exploration of success; what it is and how we can achieve it. This exciting and dynamic speech will leave audiences inspired and more importantly empowered, with the belief that they can; individually and as part of an organisation. How they develop strategies that will ultimately lead to real success and achievement.

Based on the research and messages in his highly anticipated new book of the same name, Gerver’s session will leave participants with a real clarity of the mind-sets, behaviours and attributes needed to aim higher and achieve more. Using his unique storytelling style, Gerver brings incredible energy, insight and eloquence to what has been traditionally seen as a complex and often academic process. He will share the key learning that he has gained from years of working, firstly to develop one of the world’s most celebrated education transformations to his work with some of the planet’s most successful people and organisations across every sector.  Based on experience and practice, never theory, the authenticity of his session will leave people with new views on risk, communication, collaboration and ultimately what it takes to be successful.

Education is the single most important factor that will determine the future; for our children, our economy, society and ultimately our planet. Richard Gerver uses his unique, authentic and experience driven insights, to clarify the vision, thinking and processes that we must all go through, if we are to ensure that we all; teachers, administrators parents and policy makers, develop a system that prepares our young people for a world class future. Gerver uses his experiences as a former award winning teacher, globally renowned principal, school and university board member and government policy advisor, to mesh together, with clarity and deep insight, exactly what needs to be discussed and done; from high level strategy to classroom practice. He not only brings his reputation as one of the world’s most innovative and successful educators to his sessions but is uniquely able to bridge the connections between education, business, sport and culture, thanks to his ground breaking work in those fields; having worked with Olympic coaches, EPL Teams and Golf pros, as well as with some of the globe’s biggest companies and extensively in the music industry. Gerver is able to speak with precision about exactly what skills, behaviours and attributes our children will need to not only survive but thrive in their futures. His education speeches are noted world-wide for their humor, insight, provocations and practical application. They mirror his first best-selling book. Creating Tomorrow’s Schools Today.
