Embracing AI: Successfully Navigating The AI Revolution
Audiences are bombarded by AI hucksters and doomsayers, alternating utopianism and existential terror. I cut through this maelstrom of contradictions by explaining how AI technology actually works, how it will evolve, and how to apply the lessons of past technology waves, from the industrial revolution on, to adapt to today’s challenges.
I draw on my experiences investing in AI as a venture capitalist at the Blitzscaling AI Fund and collaborating with Reid Hoffman on Impromptu, a book about the future of AI (that was also the first book ever co-authored with GPT-4), to share practical examples and case studies that audiences can apply immediately. My talk prompts listeners to rethink established norms and ponder the possibility of making their products and services orders of magnitude faster, better, and cheaper than the status quo.
As practical evidence of the power of AI, I use AI to produce a unique guidebook on the power of blitzscaling and AI for each individual audience. Event organizers can co-brand their custom guidebook and print physical copies that I will autograph at in-person speaking engagements (click here to download an example from Gen AI Asia in Korea).
Blitzscaling: How To Build The Companies of Tomorrow
Blitzscaling is the canonical way to build the world-changing companies of tomorrow. Startups can apply its lessons to grow into enduring market leaders in record time. And grown-up companies can leverage its principles to transform their businesses by maximizing their breakthrough opportunities.
In this fast-paced and entertaining talk, I explain the core principles of blitzscaling, help audiences understand whether or not they should apply blitzscaling to their businesses, and educate them on the key transitions and counterintuitive rules of blitzscaling. This talk can be customized to focus on startups, established companies, or even NGOs and policy-makers.
The Alliance: The New Employer/Employee Relationship
The world of work has changed. Few, if any employees expect to spend their entire career at one company. And yet, we still expect them to pretend otherwise. It’s time to get honest with each other, and stop thinking of employees as family or free agents, and start thinking of them as allies on a tour of duty.
In this wide-ranging talk, I explain why the current employer-employee relationship is broken, and how, paradoxically, admitting this truth and being honest with employees builds greater loyalty and longer job tenure. Audiences learn both general frameworks and specific techniques to recruit, manage, and retain entrepreneurial employees.
