Annalie Killian - Amplify09
Annalie Killian, Producer of AMPLIFY09, explains to us why hosting an Innovation Festival is so important and highlights some of the key activities and fantastic speaker sessions that will be taking place during the week of AMPLIFY09.
Jamais Cascio - What if we really could change the future for the better?
Unlike scores of futurists peddling nightmare scenarios of global catastrophe and social meltdown, Jamais specializes in the creation of plausible-yet-optimistic scenarios of the future. He focuses on the importance of long-term, systemic thinking, with a particular emphasis on democratizing technology and innovation to empower a more open and resilient society.
Dr Richard Satava - “Doctor, please grow me a new liver?”
Dr Satava will walk us into the bio-intelligence age with stories of how scientific breakthroughs are radically redefining health, illness, treatment, longevity, even humanness- and the challenge this holds for our beliefs and our ethics.
Dr Peter Gloor - What is the Innovation Quotient of you and your team?
An examination of how communication patterns, connectivity and sharing determine the innovation quotient of individuals and organisations, with examples in Financial Services and lessons in star-gazing, galactic journeys and a spot of waggle-dancing.
Lem Lasher - What opportunities are digital immigrant decision-makers missing?
Online influence is rapidly shaping consumer choices and shifting to the heart of day-to-day interactions. How technologically fluent and networked is your organizational leadership to understand and seize opportunities in the networked economy?
Jeff Carter - What will emerge from the GFC (Global Financial Crisis?)
Thoughts on constructive capitalism and the future of banking in the networked economies of the 21st century.
Spike Jones - Look who’s talking! What if your customers advertised for you?
How smart companies are tapping into the conversation, reciprocity, social needs and relationships to grow movements of consumers whose identities become linked to their brands.
Dr Colby Stuart - What will work look like and what skill sets will we need to thrive?
The capabilities, organization models and practical implications for people as we transition from hierarchically organised command-and-control cultures to open systems of collaboration and talent sourcing.
Dr Andrew Rixon - How can we thrive in complexity?
Growing resilience through a different way of thinking and doing.
Dr Paul Cooper - from scarcity to abundance
The unfolding story of how massively scalable inexpensive processing and data storage and massively connected networks of distributed human capability are creating new sources of competitive advantage and new models of production.
Dr Madanmohan Rao - How is new media facilitating entrepreneurial growth in Asia?
Walk away with a “Monday morning checklist” to tap knowledge flows using new media to the benefit of all your stakeholders.
Greg Stone - when technology dissolves the boundaries between physical and digital realities?
The new prosthesis- personal, social and business impact of augmented realities created through highly immersive experiences managed by software. What will trust look like in these scenarios?
Martin Fowler - What if enterprise software was cheaper, faster, better AND COOL?
Yes, if you honour the Agile Development Manifesto. This means valuing people and interaction over processes and tools, working software over comprehensive documentation, collaboration over contract negotiation, responding to change over rigid plans.
