Daniel Burrus’s Speech Topics

  • Disruptive Innovation: The Megatrends That Are Changing Everything

    The exponential pace of technology-driven change has been accelerated by as much as 10 years over the last 18 months, advancing several Megatrends that are already in the process of changing every industry and business model we know. These Megatrends will continue to accelerate, creating more opportunity, as well as more potential disruptions, than any other time in history. Thanks to Daniel Burrus’ award-winning Hard Trend methodology and his proven track record of accurate technology forecasts spanning the past 30+ years, disruptions can be identified long before they disrupt, giving you the opportunity to become a positive disruptor driving transformational change and actively shaping the future rather than reacting to it.


    KEY TAKEAWAYS

    In this eye-opening and highly motivating presentation by one of the world’s leading global futurists, disruptive innovation experts, and serial entrepreneurs, New York Times bestselling author of seven books Daniel Burrus blends rich examples with just the right amount of humor as he shares the most important Megatrends shaping the future and the potential disruptions, as well as the game-changing opportunities they provide.


    In addition, Burrus will share industry examples of how both small and large companies accelerated growth by using his Hard Trend methodology to identify the disruptive Megatrends before they disrupted, allowing them to accelerate growth by becoming a positive disruptor. The Megatrends, strategies, and examples will provide attendees with the ability to craft lowrisk, high-reward innovations that elevate value, accelerate growth, and transform results.

    • How to use Hard Trends to identify problems before you have them so they can be presolved.
    • How to use Hard Trends to identify emerging opportunities to accelerate growth.
    • How to identify the Soft Trends based on assumptions that might happen and the related opportunities to influence them to your advantage.
    • How to use the certainty that comes from Hard Trends to accelerate both Everyday Innovation and Exponential Innovation with much lower risk.
    • How to use Problem Skipping to accelerate your organization’s growth and your employees’ personal success.
  • Ripe for Disruption: What the Future Holds for 2022 and Beyond

    Every business and every industry is like a deer looking into the headlights of a new rapid level of technology-driven disruption. Unlike the recent past, the speed and depth of this rapidly approaching disruption is moving far faster and will be far more profound. Reacting as quickly as you can, no matter how agile you are, will no longer be good enough.


    Thanks to Burrus’ award-winning Hard Trend methodology and his proven track record of accurate technology forecasts spanning the past 30+ years, disruptive changes can be identified long before they disrupt, giving you the opportunity to become a positive disruptor, creating the transformational changes that need to happen as you actively shape the future rather than react to it.

  • The Anticipatory Organization®: Elevate Planning, Accelerate Innovation, and Transform Results

    Every business, regardless of its size, has a plan, just as most individuals have a plan of some kind. But having a plan does not guarantee success! Let’s face it, throughout history every business that either failed or experienced a dramatic decline had a plan! Some plans were based on a number of scenarios that may or may not happen. Some were based on current trends continuing, and some were focused on executing a static plan over a number of years.


    Burrus, the creator of the award-winning Anticipatory Organization® Planning Methodology, has transformed the way highly successful small, medium, and large organizations, including the Department of Defense, plan and innovate.

  • Accelerating Growth: Leading with Strategic Foresight

    There has never been more opportunity to accelerate profitable growth than there is today! In 2020, everyone was forced to use digital solutions in new ways, which dramatically accelerated the exponential pace of technology-driven change. Agility and adaptability are no longer enough! Accurately anticipating technological changes as well as customers’ changing needs provides the biggest advantage.


    In times of unprecedented change and uncertainty, we need to ask ourselves what we are certain about. Strategies based on uncertainty equal high levels of risk. Strategies based on certainty dramatically reduce risk and produce superior results.
