The Great Rewrite

We are living in a unique moment in history, when revolutionary change in all sectors is occurring at a frenzied pace.

This massive scale of disruption has understandably left organizations on shaky footing, struggling to engage consumers and employees alike and stay relevant.

Those that learn to adapt, those that allow themselves to be “rewritten” for the modern day, will survive and prosper. Those that do not will collapse.

Leonard Brody explains how to deal with the questions the future holds, and how organizations can harness the uncertainty they’re faced with and turn it into excitement, innovation, and success.

Beyond Human

There is a great deal of confusion around what AI is and what it is actually capable of. Beyond Human decodes the world of artificial intelligence from the perspective of its impact on the core competencies of an organization. It puts in place a roadmap for how one can understand the impact of an era when the human brain is no longer the most sophisticated hard drive on earth. It’s about practicality, not scientific theory. We are standing at a great precipice in human history. It’s time to demystify AI and truly understand what it is and how it can be harnessed to propel organizations to their next level of growth and purpose.

Kapital

We are entering into a post currency era; the reign of nation states over money is now over. As the blockchain allows individuals and organizations to launch their own economic systems, the global capital markets will have to react and respond. This may be the largest shift in the movement of money ever.
