STORM THE NORM
We’ve seen emergence of some truly inspiring businesses and brands in the last few decades. Ideas that have stormed the norms of their respective industries and introduced fundamental innovations that redefined the business core.
There’s one truth that these success stories prove beyond doubt – that industry storms aren’t purely accidental - they can be made to happen by design and, perhaps, at will. There is a method to the magic of creating the future core.
It is not difficult to decode the method in retrospect and apply it by design to your next challenge.
Storm the Norm is an interactive keynote that inspires business leaders to look at their own businesses through the eyes of a stormer.
One big secret behind most business successes is the stormer’s ability to spot the invisible suboptimal and conceive a breakthrough that unlocks hidden value leading to creating the next business in-flexion point.
Audience takeaway: Inspiration to revitalize their current business core and create new future core through innovation.
