Keynote Topics

Peter Diamandis is the New York Times bestselling author of “ABUNDANCE — The Future Is Better Than You Think” (#1 on Amazon, #2 on NY Times). In this book, Diamandis shows us how technology is turning areas of scarcity into abundance.

This bold, contrarian view, backed up by exhaustive research, introduces our near-term future, where exponentially growing technologies (AI, Robotics, Sensors, Networks, 3D Printing, SynBio, etc.) and the power of the crowd are converging to better the lives of billions.

This keynote is an antidote to pessimism. Diamandis examines human need by category — water, food, energy, healthcare, education, communication and freedom — and shows the audience detailed evidence on the revolutionary improvements in these areas over the past century.

He addresses how a range of exponential technologies are transforming what was once scarce into abundance. Humanity’s grandest challenge is providing abundance, and this keynote addresses how we rise to meet it.

As President Bill Clinton says, “Abundance shows us that while the headlines are really bad in the world today, the trend lines are pretty good. Extreme poverty is down.

The health care is improving dramatically around the world. There are developments now which make me believe we might be able to do what we did in the 1990s, which is to use technological developments to create more jobs than we lose.”

Today a company’s success depends on mindset, its use of exponential technologies and the power of crowdsourcing. This keynote, based on Diamandis’ bestselling book BOLD, examines the approaches required to succeed during this exponential age.

Where should a company be looking to grow 10x bigger, rather than 10-percent bigger? What does it take for a company to become an Exponential Organization? How do you become Uber rather than Kodak?

Peter Diamandis explains how a Massively Transformative Purpose can drive your organization’s culture and help you attract the best employees. He examines the innovation principles used by GoogleX’, and the power of bold, “moonshot” thinking. Peter Diamandis details how entrepreneurial billionaires like Larry Page, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson think — and what strategies they use to scale and disrupt.

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 like Uber, Airbnb, DropBox, Oculus, Whatsapp, SpaceX and Tesla.

Disruption is also coming from data-driven tech giants who are entering into adjacent fields: Google into the automotive industry, Apple into the music industry, Facebook into the global telecom industry, and IBM Watson into healthcare.

As Peter Diamandis will detail, much of this transformation is a result of rapidly accelerating exponential technologies such as Infinite Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, 3D Printing, Sensors, Networks, and Synthetic Biology.

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.
