- "You cannot stop change, but you can shape it to your
Innovations in science and technology continue to provide us with "new
tools" that will greatly increase our productivity and efficiency in
all areas. Knowing what these tools are, and how to creatively apply
them, is vital to maintaining your competitive edge. In this
forward-thinking presentation, Daniel Burrus will offer valuable
insights into present and future opportunities that are made possible
by rapid advances in technology. You will hear solid evidence
supporting the view that change is opportunity as you learn how to
strategically position your organization to thrive in a shifting
technological and economic climate.
Using Technology to Go Beyond Your Competition
- "When a new technology satisfies a major social need, a
revolution is created."
Technology is continually changing the rules of competition, rendering
many traditional business strategies and processes obsolete.
Identifying and understanding the challenges and opportunities that
new technologies create has become a key business imperative. In this
eye-opening presentation, Daniel Burrus identifies specific
technologies that will directly impact you and your industry. He will
demonstrate how they can be used to generate strategic value by
transforming products, services, and markets, as well as your
customers. You will learn how to anticipate the future of
technological change and turn a rapidly changing business environment
into a competitive advantage.
Creating and Sustaining Strategic
- "Changing times means changing strategies."
E-Business technologies are transforming every relationship that
matters to your organization, helping you build an enterprise of
unprecedented agility and responsiveness. But just as technology is
undergoing a revolution, the rules that govern those who use it in
their business are also being redefined. As we create organizations
that can respond rapidly to change, we tend to react to change rather
than anticipate it. In this empowering presentation, Daniel Burrus
will share powerful strategies for creatively applying technology to
drive growth as you develop new products, services and customer
experiences that will propel you far ahead of the competition -- and
help you to stay there!
"Technology has the
power to alter reality. It lets you make the impossible possible."
An overwhelming majority of hardware and software manufacturers agree
that, in general, their customers are dramatically under-utilizing the
tools they already own. Is it any wonder that many are beginning to
question whether technology will ever live up to their expectations? As
we strive to maintain a competitive edge, it's important to understand
that technology is only one component of the equation for success. In
this powerful presentation, Daniel Burrus will share valuable strategies
for integrating strategy, technology and people to maximize your
technology investment. Creatively applying new tools, as well as the
tools you already have in place, can unlock opportunities and provide
new competitive advantage.

not technically oriented, meeting planners may want to use the word Futureview®
instead of Technotrends® in the main title.
