Intentional Evolution: How Marketers & Companies Can Navigate The Future & Thrive

Presentation Description:

An entertaining, engaging, and informative keynote describing how marketers can help their company, clients, and themselves achieve success in an ever-changing world. Tom brings decades of real-world experience leading marketing and other functions, along with the best thinking from tech and business luminaries, including Josh Bayliss (CEO Virgin), Tom Kelly (Founder IDEO), John Sculley (Business), Carol Smith (IBM Watson), to share how we can prepare as individuals and teams to meet the challenges of the future.

Interest and benefits to attendees: As a result of the uncertainties and challenges facing businesses today, a significant percentage of once (or currently) healthy businesses will encounter difficulty operating with a "business as usual" mindset. Yet the reality is that the inevitable changes will also bring new opportunities to those organizations that are able to understand, respond and leverage them. A successful future isn't reached with a haphazard approach. Rather there are proven strategies that can be learned and methodologies that can be applied to not just survive - but thrive in the future.

Learning objectives:

  • How to become a creative genius (again)

  • Your secret growth factor

  • What a widowed neighbor taught a young Steve Jobs about work and life

  • What every world-class performer has in common

‚ÄčSpeaker Biography:

Tom Triumph

Thomas Triumph helps companies grow by collaboratively helping them reinvent their business, product development, and marketing. Along the way, he's helped large Fortune 500 organizations act nimbly and small entrepreneurial companies scale. He's been a participant in two global technology revolutions—and has been part of some remarkable success stories (and some misfires). He's the author of the book "Evolve or Die: Lessons for World-Class Innovation & Creativity."

Tom fulfilled a childhood dream of living aboard an ocean research ship and tending to the mini-sub (Cousteau was on the Board), wrestled in the Olympic trials, and helped oversee the design and fabrication of the largest composite hovercraft ever built in the US. He resides in North Carolina and is an ultrarunner who envies Tom Hanks' long run as Forrest Gump.
