Come From Conversations

01. Agility For Strategy, Leadership & Organization

At the Speed of the Customer

Have you wondered how non-industry companies are disrupting traditional players? Or why smaller companies scale up so rapidly to displace large players? What is so different in how that shape strategy? What type of leadership is needed to be thriving in the disruptive world? This session takes you into a new approach to strategy for a world yet to be discovered. We help apply the three elements of agility to your company and explain the new world of business: There is no such thing as a single-industry company anymore, every business is a platform, data, and technology business, with technology and data, the lines blur even between seemingly dissimilar industries, for the customer, experience from one instance is immediately transferred to a completely different instance in real-time as an expectation, the future of the workforce is augmented—a mix of human full-time employees, gig talent, robotics, and AI-driven automation.

02. Digital Natives To AI Native Business Models & Transformation

Like An AI Native

This talk lays our a framework to explain what and how a AI native business would do differently than traditional or digital native firms. 

Companies that have been born in the last 10 years, ‘digital natives’ understand and serve their customers in a fundamentally different way than legacy businesses. They use five distinct habits to think like a digital native and win in a disruptive marketplace.

We are now seeing the birth of AI Native companies. This transformative shift has now placed companies in four phases: Still in digital transformation, successfully transformed through digital, embedding AI into the business and born with AI first mindset.


This session explains the shift from digital to AI natives and lays out five key dimensions of AI application across the customer, the enterprise and the ecosystem of a business. 


Thinking Like An AI Native Is a one of its kind key note session or a course for leaders who want to understand disruption and shape strategy for their organizations at the intersection of customer behavior, market forces, cross industry impacts, technology, business models and leadership.

03. Innovation, Disruption & Leadership

Ideas Don’t Die. Companies Do.

This session takes you into a whirlwind of ideas centric strategies at the intersection of industries, technologies, interfaces and insights. We decode innovation for you. Camera as an idea transitioned from Kodak to Nokia Phones to the professional grade cameras in smart phones today. This has futrher evolved into Robotic Process Automation using computer vision to process insurance claims and present decision points to human managers.


Ideas transition through companies and it is fascinating to analyse how a same or similar idea has been used as strategy by different companies through history. Some of the most intriguing and successful products and services on the market today have existed in one form or another for decades or even centuries. For example, the idea of renting your house to another person has probably existed since people actually owned real estate. Even interface features like ‘Stories’ from snapchat found its way into Instagram, Facebook and has created the idea for the mass popularity of Tik Tok today. A number of individual companies rise and fall every year. The ideas that fuel them live on and wait the next bright entrepreneurial mind to bring them to life more effectively.
