  • Driving Growth Through Innovation - You've got a process for everything else. Why not for Innovation? When was the last time you focused on upgrading your ability to conceive and introduce new product, service, process and strategy ideas? Could it be that you are using yesterday's methods to manage today's complex marketplace challenges? This dynamic, example-filled keynote presentation will give you an overview of the important findings reported in Tucker's ground-breaking book, Driving Growth Through Innovation. Tucker will take you and your colleagues behind the scenes inside the Innovation Vanguard companies. You'll discover the latest methods for building innovation into a powerful source of growth, profits, and competitive advantage. You'll learn unconventional approaches for turning innovation into a systematic, imbedded process, and be motivated to take action in your company.

  • Innovation is Everybody's Business - Organizations today are increasingly in need of high potential managers and individual contributors with the abilities and mindset to get new projects done. While professionals with functional and technical skills are valued, those with Innovation Skills are emerging as the most sought-after talent in today's hyper-competitive age. In this practical, inspiring and highly interactive personal development session, global innovation guru and bestselling author Robert Tucker explores powerful tools and strategies to help you and your colleagues hone your ability to seize emerging opportunities, develop new revenue sources, add value, and create unconventional solutions. (This session can be delivered as a one hour keynote, 90 minute general session, or interactive half- or full-day seminar.)

  • Leading Ahead of the Curve - Are you managing the future or is the future managing you? Organizations and their leaders are being challenged like never before to adapt faster to technological and disruptive changes in their markets. Every aspect of your business is about to change and the question is: will you be ready to lead? Robert Tucker is a respected global futurist, innovation thought leader and much-sought after keynote speaker whose client list includes over 200 of the Fortune 500 companies. This program is perfect for industry and professional associations, economic development organizations, and companies facing the forces of discontinuous change. It's based on Robert's bestselling book, Managing the Future: 10 Driving Forces of Change, which has been translated into 17 languages.

    All too often, Tucker observes, we are too busy managing today's business, and we don't think far enough up the road to capitalize on trends and turn them to our advantage. This kickoff session (or longer program) serves as a powerful road map for leaders who want to thrive amidst the uncertainty and unpredictability of exponential change and sudden disruption. The powerful strategies revealed here show you how to spot emerging trends in time to shape an effective and bold response. While economists confine themselves to economic trends, Robert explores such topics as how to scan and monitor consumer, political, technological, economic, regulatory, demographic, lifestyle and social trends. And how to use them as stepping stones to growth, profit and competitive advantage. The session is based on Robert's proprietary research into your industry, and is especially powerful for leaders facing new competitive threats, disruptive technologies, new market entrants, and related challenges. The theme here is optimism. Tucker will leave you and your colleagues inspired and refreshed, with actionable "take-home" strategies and ideas to seize tomorrow's opportunities today.

  • The Intelligent Talk Show - Have you ever wished there was a way to spice up those important, but often boring, panel discussions at your big meeting? Now there is. Recently some of your fellow meeting professionals have retired that drab, draped table with the squeaky microphones and the hunched over panelists. Instead, they have introduced an exciting new format, produced and hosted by Robert B. Tucker, that we refer to as "The Intelligent Talk Show." Result: Good-by snoresville. Hello packed house.

  • Innovation Workshops - In these practical, highly customized two and three-day innovation workshops, Robert Tucker guides you and your team through a step-by-step process of developing innovation capability in your company to drive growth, differentiation and competitive advantage. Using Tucker's Five Best Practices of the Global Innovation Vanguard Companies he has studied, Tucker helps you identify what you and your organization must do to create and implement a systematic, sustainable process of innovation to out-think and out-perform the competition. He argues that in the Vanguard Firms, "innovation" is a core strategic imperative and is driven from the top. He works with you to establish criteria and define innovation uniquely to your organization's needs. He shows how to adapt the Tucker Innovation Model to create your firm's innovation process, including a robust Front End of Innovation, and an idea selection process that winnows and sorts ideas entering your funnel on their way to implementation.

  • Innovation Webinars - Looking for an alternative way to bring Robert Tucker's powerful ideas to your group or organization? An ever increasing number of our corporate and association clients are using online webinars to extend the impact of a live presentation, or deliver innovation training online for employees. For example, one association used Tucker webinars to increase attendance at its annual meeting. Others use webinars on a monthly basis to extend the learning and reach deeper into their organizations.
