The first thing disruption speakers and other keynote presenters should always be point out: It’s vital to disrupt yourself before competitors do it for you. Thankfully, finding ways to innovate and outmaneuver rivals while always staying one step ahead isn’t as convoluted or difficult as you might suspect when you bring a little ingenuity to bear. As disruption speakers, we often provide breakouts, workshops, and training classes to go with our keynote speaking programs and vital presentations that show audiences that innovation is simpler than it seems. As you can see below, there is more than one way to run rings around rivals, or stay a step ahead of the pack.

Topic: Accelerating Digital Transformation and Growth

Scenario: Across every industry, COVID-19 is fast-tracking growth and transformation – as we disruption speakers are fond of explaining, cloud computing technology, analytics, AI and similar solutions can help you propel your organization into the future more rapidly, and prepare it to greet the challenges tomorrow’s business world will bring.

Insight: Implementing a variety of data-driven, analytics-based, and always on-demand solutions can help you transform, innovate, and identify or explore new business opportunities faster than ever. Moreover, many off-the-shelf tools, services, and solutions can help you do so more rapidly and cost-effectively than at any point in history as well. Of course, you also don’t have to try and reinvent your business overnight; sometimes, the best approach to digital transformation is to identify areas where you can make a meaningful impact quickly, then update those areas first vs. trying to do it all at once.

Topic: Maintaining Cybersecurity in a World of Remote Work

Scenario: More work is becoming remote and moving to the cloud – that requires organizations to rethink they how safeguard networks and online touchpoints, as the scope of digital territory that they now have to defend is exponentially growing.

Insight: Like most disruption speakers will tell you, when dealing with growing cyber threats, not only do you have to educate staff, create a culture of healthy skepticism, and put well-defined protocols and procedures in place. You also need to work to isolate user access and systems (to minimize points of failure in the event of breach), conduct regular threat scanning and penetration testing, and implement artificially-intelligent solutions that can auto-spot and shut down suspicious behavior.
