Disrupt Yourself … or Be Disrupted

Stephen Shapiro, Author and Innovation Expert

Your past success will ultimately lead to your future failure. Why? Because the more you know about the audiovisual industry, the harder it is for you to think differently about it. This keeps you stuck. The products and services you offered previously will no longer be sufficient to keep your business alive. In these highly interactive sessions, you will learn:

  • Why expertise is the enemy of innovation, and what you can do about it
  • The key disruptive forces that are impacting every industry
  • How to develop breakthrough solutions quickly with lower risk
  • That the solutions you develop are less important than the questions you ask

These sessions are not a crystal ball telling you what will happen in the future. Instead, you will be given the tools to identify disruptions before they happen so that you can respond quickly and confidently.
