Robin Chase’s Speech Topics

  • Business Consulting from Robin Chase: Shifting Paradigms to Disrupt Your Industry

    Bringing in a business consultant can challenge you and your organization to think differently about your business. Whether you are a new leader seeking a renewed vision for your company or a seasoned C-Suite executive exploring new trends in the marketplace, they provide the deep, strategic insights and much-needed perspective to help you make confident and profitable decisions.

    Robin Chase, former CEO of Zipcar, unpacks the underlying principles that enabled a startup to transform an industry. Zipcar harnessed technology and marketing to change the way people own and use cars; the ways cities are lived in and built; and altered prejudices about the incompatibility of environmentalism and capitalism. As one of the pioneers of the sharing economy, Chase can help your executive leadership team understand where to look for innovation and how to enable it.

    Her advisory topics include:

    • Business Growth
    • Business Trend Analysis
    • Cultivating Innovation and Creativity
    • Leadership in a Cyber World 
  • People-Powered Innovation

    As the rates of innovation and disruption increase, a new organizational framework, Peers Inc., provides a way of reducing innovation risk, and increasing confidence in decision making. By enabling innovation—1) creating a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship; 2) reducing barriers and costs to experimentation; and 3) reducing the costs of the innovation inputs—government and big companies can make it possible for people to do the changing themselves. In this talk, Robin Chase—founder of car-sharing service Zipcar—discusses people-powered innovation.

  • Collaborative Economy

    Sharing is good! An unlikely partnership is creating the smartest, biggest and strongest companies. People working on platforms mean efficiently used resources, co-investment from others, low-cost innovation and very fast learning.

  • The Future of Transportation

    Technology is transforming the ease and convenience of accessing a car instead of owning it, and cities are getting fed up with valuable city streets being clogged with idle parked cars and vehicles in motion holding just one person.

    Zipcar, Uber and Lyft, transit apps, and autonomous vehicle pilots are all signs of the incredible disruption that is upon us.The future is going to be multi-modal, shared, and ultimately automated.

    What will this future look like? How soon is it coming? What are the implications for cities and the 20% of the economy that is driven by the automotive sector?
