Mike Walsh Speaking Topics

  • Designing Your Business for the 21st Century

    Most companies are simply not designed to survive. They become successful on the basis of one big idea or breakthrough product - but then fail to evolve and change. One out of three public companies will cease to exist in their current form over the next five years.

    The companies that will thrive in the near future are the ones not only embracing change but breaking the rules. Companies built to survive the future are no accident. They are a result of deliberate business design decisions smart leaders are making today.

    In his ongoing research on the world’s most innovative companies, Mike has organized these decisions into strategic priorities - that he will explore with audiences as a roadmap for their own reinvention. Walsh will outline the forces shaping the future of business and consumer behaviour, and the lessons learned from successful Fortune 500 companies on leveraging disruptive innovation, adopting a data-driven mindset and leading change through digital transformation.

  • The Algorithmic Leader

    We live in an age of wonder - cars that drive themselves, platforms that anticipate our needs, and robots capable of everything from advanced manufacturing to complex surgery. Automation, algorithms and AI are transforming not only business but every facet of daily life. While many fear that robots will take their jobs, the rise of machine intelligence begs a more important question: what is the true potential of human intelligence in the 21st century?

    In this dynamic keynote, Mike Walsh, futurist and author will present a vivid portrait of a brave new world orchestrated by machines that think, and how tomorrow's leaders can upgrade their capabilities to survive and thrive in an age of accelerating technology.

    Audiences will walk away with an insight into the companies, technologies and global forces shaping the age of machine intelligence, as well as a set of tailored next actions on how to redesign their organizations, reimagine their roles and reinvent the way they make decisions.

  • New Rules for a New World

    COVID-19 is not only changing our way of life, it will hasten the arrival of a radical new future of work. While for many of us working from home has been a new and unexpected challenge - that is just the start of a much bigger transformation set to reshape the nature of business itself. In order to survive, every organization will have to virtualize.

    Whether it be serving customers through digital channels or leveraging AI, algorithms and automation to ensure business continuity - we are likely to experience in the next twelve months, a decade’s worth of change. Not every business will make it, but those that do will never be the same again. And for leaders, now more than ever, is a time to upgrade their capabilities, embrace new technologies, and reimagine what they do.

    Mike Walsh’s inspiring new keynote presentation will offer audiences an insight into the organizations and leaders that are successfully navigating this period of change, and how to create a playbook for their own transformation. Becoming future-proof is more than just about getting through the current crisis - it is about being ready for the new world that awaits us on the other side.

  • RE-IMAGINING IT

    The IT strategies that made you successful until now are also the biggest threats to your future. Upgrading your systems is easy. How will you upgrade the DNA of your people?

    Yesterday’s IT organization was defined by a "break-fix" mentality. Today, a new era of automation, virtualization and cloud IT service management means that your technology teams must flip from managing risk and downtime, to delivering innovation and enablement. This is a business revolution no CEO can ignore.

    DURING HIS PRESENTATIONS ON THIS TOPIC, MIKE SHARES:

    • The 21st century CIO and the traits IT leaders will need to succeed

    • Why the Cloud should challenge the way you think about your organizational design

    • Aligning IT and business to deliver continuous innovation for your end customers

    • How to apply speed, agility and the new lean IT mindset to your technology teams

  • The Seven Strategic Priorities for 21st Century Business Design

    Smart leaders realize that the future of their company depends on business design decisions that must be made today. In his ongoing research on the world’s most innovative companies, Mike has categorized those decisions into seven strategic priorities.

    When you engage Mike as your keynote speaker, he will work with you to select the strategic priorities most relevant to your future roadmap. Then, during his research phase, he will conduct in-depth interviews with your team, clients or top performers in your industry in order to identify specific case studies that will resonate with your audience.

  • Why Business Leaders Need to Understand Their Algorithms

    One of the biggest sources of anxiety about AI is not that it will turn against us, but that we simply cannot understand how it works. Knowing “why” is important for many industries, particularly those with fiduciary obligations like consumer finance, or in healthcare and education, where vulnerable lives are involved. Leaders will increasingly be challenged by shareholders, customers, and regulators on what they optimize for...
