Here are a few guest keynotes that will be taking place at the event:


Julia Dhar, Business Strategist & Champion Debater

Tough Conversations at Work: How to Disagree Productively and Find Common Ground (Wednesday, December 11, 2019, 1:45pm-2:30pm)

“Some days, it feels like the only thing we can agree on is that we can't agree -- on anything. Drawing on her background as a world debate champion, Julia Dhar offers three techniques to reshape the way we talk to each other so we can start disagreeing productively and finding common ground -- over family dinners, during work meetings, and in our national conversations.”

Peter Diamandis, Chairman and CEO, XPRIZE Foundation; Executive Chairman, Singularity University and Author

Exponential Tech: Innovation & Disruption on the Road Ahead (Monday, December 9, 2019, 4:15pm-5:00pm)

“The only constant is change, and the rate of change is increasing. 40% of today’s Fortune 500 companies are predicted to disappear in the next 10 years. Competition is no longer the multinational overseas; instead, it’s the exponential entrepreneur creating companies such as Uber. Much of this transformation is a result of rapidly accelerating exponential technologies. During this Keynote, you will get a real sense of exponential growth, the origins of Moore’s Law, and understand how the 6 D’s -- Digitization, Deception, Disruption, Dematerialization, Demonetization and Democratization -- will impact your products and services. In this highly visual and powerful keynote, Diamandis gives the audience a true understanding of the immediacy of these disruptions. Today’s companies cannot remain stagnant. They must evolve, or they will die. You are either disrupting your own business model or someone else will.”

Sooooooooooo many topics… you’re going to have some tough decisions to make ;)
