Concept Modeling - Winston Perez

Do you want  an ultra edge approach to investing?  Lessen the risk? Do you have a company, product or service that you want to take to the next level? Perhaps you would like to learn the secret to disruptive innovation. Then, join this talk.

The key to all of the above stems from a very practical understanding how the abstract world (where disruptive innovations come from in the first place) actually works. Amazingly, it is something we were never accurately taught. But change that… and we change everything. Take a step into both the past and future. Come to a talk that will change the way you understand the world of ideas and concept.

As featured in the New York Times, and Deadline.com, Winston is the founder of a discipline called Concept Modeling, and is the author of an award (Visionary Award) winning new book, Concerning the Nature and Structure of Concept. Reviewers have called his book (thus his work) “brimming with insights,” “intellectually fun,” “a startling fresh perspective on our world.”

Co-Create: How Your Firm Can Profit from Innovative and Strategic Collaboration - David Nour

Micro-cap leaders fundamentally understand, to remain relevant, they must transform – themselves, their teams, and their organization. What if that transformation came from a few, strategic relationships who demonstrated a vested interest in your success? Not through clever marketing slogans, but rather a journey – your journey, from now to next.

Only when you balance learning and performing, will you evolve from being the smartest person in the room, to one who learns and grows through every experience with speed and agility. You begin to identify faint market signals all around you. With the right collaboration partners, you begin to prioritize the right strategic path, attract exceptional talent, and focus on where and how to invest in pilots and prototypes. You evolve your value proposition through iteration, innovation and potential disruption.

Join global speaker, best-selling author, senior leadership/board advisor and private investor, David Nour, as he shares insights from his 10th book, and arguably, his most seminal work, Co-Create. In this highly engaging and interactive session, you’ll get a glimpse into the disruptive forces all around us, and a glimpse into your necessary if not critical evolution. Don’t miss what others have called “more insights in 45 min with Nour, than I’ve gained on my own in the past year!”
