Digital Transformation: Platforms Shaping Industry Structures

The growth of tech giants such as Google and Amazon has been impressive. Companies such as Uber and Airbnb grew from zero to dominance in only a few years. All the companies that emerged in the past decade have one fundamental thing in common that helps them scale exponentially and dominate markets – that’s the platform business model. This talk lays out the fundamental differences that set platforms apart and the key drivers for its success. Whether you’re building a platform business or not, you can’t succeed in today’s economy without understanding how platforms work.

Digital Innovation: Disruption in the Digital Age

Shifting from an incremental to an exponential strategy is the first step towards real transformative growth. Much of this transformation is a result of rapidly accelerating exponential technologies such as Infinite Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, 3D Printing, Sensors, Networks, and Synthetic Biology.

During this presentation, you will get a real sense of the shifts (taking examples from multiple industries) and the key principles that separate successful companies from the unsuccessful ones in the digital economy. Lital will explain how you could identify opportunities to innovate and transform your own business model before someone else will.

Attention: The New Creative Currency

As barriers to entrepreneurship disappear, the race for attention will repeatedly separate the winners from the losers. How do startups like Instagram, WhatsApp, and AirBnb build massive user bases without a marketing team? How do individuals like Eric Ries build a huge global following without ever appearing on the TED stage? How do self-published books like Fifty Shades of Grey gain worldwide appeal with no marketing budget?

This keynote answers these questions by laying out a strategic framework to leverage the network to market you or your business.

Forces of Change

Today’s enterprises need to connect and engage with customers, partners and employees in new ways. The key to success for enterprises is to leverage the right business model as well as the relevant emerging technologies to create and to monetize their value. Lital customized her talk to focus on the leading business structure as well as technologies that you’ll need to consider to drive your business, digital transformation, and innovation. Industries that can have a custom focus for this talk include: Tourism/Travel, Automotive, Banking, Insurance and Education.

The Future of Education: 21st century skills

The ever growing gap between the skills people learn and the skills people need is becoming more obvious, as traditional learning falls short of equipping students with the knowledge they need to thrive, according to the World Economic Forum.

So, what separates individuals with strong 21st century skills from individuals competing without these skills? How can we prepare young professionals to thrive in this new world that is unfolding?
