The very structures put in place to help organizations grow are now holding us back. So, it’s time to Kill the Company! This keynote is an inspirational call to arms: to start a revolution in how we think and how we work.


The key lesson of this Keynote: if we want people to approach change differently, we have to change our approach. You will learn how simplification lets us achieve more and better innovate. This can reignite critical aptitudes such as curiosity, inquiry, creative problem solving, and more.
