Sample Talks (3)

Why good companies go bad (and how great managers avoid failure)

From GM to Lehman, many once-great companies have gone bad. This speech introduces "active inertia," an influential theory that explains why good companies go bad, illustrates the theory with stories of well-known corporate failures, and explains how to avoid this fate.

Thriving in turbulent markets

By most measures, volatility is on the rise. Based on a decade of study of more and less successful companies in turbulent markets including China, Brazil, fast fashion, and finance, this speech presents a few simple principles for seizing the upside of turbulence

Executing strategy for results

Execution tops the lists of most CEOs' concerns, yet two-thirds of all companies fail to execute their strategy effectively. This interactive speech introduces a comprehensive model of strategy execution based on cutting-edge research and successful roll out in companies.
