DANIEL BURRUS PROGRAMS & TOPICS

Anticipatory Leadership: Predict Change and Create Extraordinary Results

The pandemic forced everyone to turn to digital solutions as never before, accelerating technology-driven trends by as much as 10 years in a matter of a few months and creating more opportunity, as well as potential disruptions, than any other time in history.

As digital transformation continues to accelerate post-pandemic, reacting and responding to change, no matter how agile you are, is no longer good enough. Anticipatory Leaders use Hard Trends based on future facts to identify and act on disruptions before they disrupt, problems before they occur, and customer needs before the competition. As a result, disruptive change becomes a major competitive advantage.

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 trends shaping the future and the opportunities they provide.

In addition, Burrus will use industry examples to teach attendees how to identify the Hard Trends based on future facts that will happen, and how to use those certainties, and the game-changing opportunities they provide to craft low-risk high-reward strategies to elevate value, accelerate growth, and transform results.

  • How to identify the Hard Trends that will happen to accurately anticipate disruptions before they disrupt, turning disruption into a choice
  • How to use Hard Trends to identify problems before you have them so they can be pre-solved
  • 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

Thanks to 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 actively shaping the future rather than reacting to it.
