The Anticipatory Leader™: Predict Change and Create Extraordinary Results

Based on decades of research and experience applying his Hard Trend methodology to leading companies worldwide, Daniel has identified the missing competency: Anticipation. With his Anticipatory Organization Model, Burrus enables business leaders to separate Hard Trends from Soft Trends. When you learn to analyze and perceive trends this way, it is possible to tap into what Burrus calls Everyday Innovation, solving challenges faster, and recognizing previously invisible opportunities. Mastering these capabilities will position your organization to be the disruptor instead of being the disrupted—thus creating competitive advantage, and reducing risk. This eye-opening and motivating presentation will teach attendees the key components of the new core competency—anticipation—and show them how to apply it to their work and life, which will accelerate both their organization's growth and their personal success.

In Uncertain Times You Have More Control Than You Realize

The COVID-19 pandemic has suppressed our positive, innovative mentality, sending us into a primordial tailspin of trying to survive and quickly restore the status quo. The pandemic will end, but is it possible to make the new post-pandemic normal better than what we had before? If we get past the fear of “what's next” and become anticipatory, using new tools and the power of certainty to create a better tomorrow for all, it can be.
While the level of uncertainty unfolding every day is staggering, and we can't seem to react fast enough, it has never been more important to become anticipatory by identifying Hard Trends and disruptions before they disrupt and pre-solving predictable problems before they spread. Unfortunately, uncertainty does not provide the confidence to make bold moves. Instead, trying to hunker down and protect the status quo becomes a daily task in which many leaders say “no” as much as possible, turning inward to manage the crisis in an effort to play it safe, hoping they can react fast enough to combat what might happen to them. There has never been more uncertainty than there is today, and it has never been more imperative to get ahead of problems and see new opportunities by becoming an anticipatory leader. In this strategic presentation, one of the world's leading global futurists and innovation experts, Daniel Burrus, will provide actionable strategies for seeing invisible opportunities and solving seemingly impossible problems during this unprecedented time.

The Economic Pandemic: An Evolutionary Revolution Accelerating Disruptive Innovation

Digital disruption and the transformational changes it brings has been evolving at an accelerating rate for many years now. The global health and economic pandemic we have all been part of has blinded many of us to the fact that it has dramatically accelerated this evolutionary rate of change to a revolutionary level, giving every individual and organization the ability to go beyond getting back to normal and instead redefine and reinvent our business models and processes, making them far better than they were before.
When the pandemic is over, and it will be, digital disruption will continue at an even faster pace! When most of us think of digital disruption, we usually see it as negative, because disruption usually happens to us, forcing us to react and respond, put out fires and crisis manage in an effort to keep up. The disruptor, a good example being Amazon, always sees it quite differently. They are the ones shaping the future, using new tools and thinking to create the changes and disruption others will have to react to. Now is the time to actively shape the future for ourselves and our organizations, using new tools and new thinking to become positive disruptors, creating the transformations that need to happen to build a better future for ourselves, our organizations, and our customers. When the pandemic is over, and it will be, what will you and your organization be remembered for? In this strategic presentation, one of the world's leading global futurists and innovation experts, Daniel Burrus, will provide actionable strategies for using this unique time in human history to accelerate transformational innovations that will position you to thrive both now and in the near future regardless of the size of your organization.

Accelerating Growth: Leading With Strategic Foresight and Certainty

Accelerating growth requires a new way of thinking about overcoming obstacles and acting on new opportunities. All too often, change comes from the outside in, forcing us to react by slipping into a crisis management mode, and putting out fires. This presentation is about opportunity management, identifying the driving forces of predictable change, driving growth strategies from the inside out, and taking control of our future. This eye-opening and motivating presentation will teach attendees how to be prepared to capitalize on the next wave of technological change and develop the ability to identify the driving forces of predictable change.

Business Process Transformation: The Megatrends that Are Changing Everything

Daniel Burrus takes the concept of looking into the future and transforms it into a new paradigm for running an Anticipatory Organization using the new tools of innovation for driving business process transformation. The Cloud, Virtualization, Mobility, and Machine-to-Machine Communications (M2M) are the great enablers allowing organizations to transform every business process in ways that were impossible just a few years ago to dramatically reduce costs and drive new revenue streams. In his transformative presentation, Daniel Burrus teaches how to anticipate the revolution of dematerialization, advanced virtualization, cloud services, mobility, IoT, and a host of other game-changing technologies using his proven Hard Trend Methodology.

Using Hard Trends To Turn Disruption and Change into Opportunity and Advantage

Technology-driven exponential change has created a unique tipping point, one filled with disruptive problems as well as amazing new opportunities. There are many new tools and strategies that can be used to transform the customer experience, grow brand loyalty in amazing new ways, increase consumer engagement, and accelerate the results. By learning to separate the Hard Trends that will happen from the Soft Trends that might happen, you can accurately anticipate technology-driven disruptions before they disrupt, problems before they happen so that you can pre-solve them, customers’ needs before they express them, and game-changing opportunities before the competition. Mastering these capabilities will position your organization to turn digital disruption and change into an advantage. In this eye-opening and motivating presentation, attendees learn how technology-driven exponential change has created a unique tipping point, one filled with disruptive problems as well as amazing new opportunities.
