NICHOLAS SPEAKS ON THE FUTURE OF
INNOVATION-In the old days, innovation happened slowly and methodically. But in today’s hyper connected economy organizations are being blindsided by disruptive innovators who’ve learned how to leverage consumer insights and connection architecture to rule the day. Unfortunately, many organizations are simply waiting for the next shoe to drop… Bad idea! The new breed of hackers, makers and breakers are looking for weaknesses in technologies, products and even delivery models.
TECHNOLOGY-There are many complex variables about the future of technology. But there are several known hard trends that we have aggregated to help organizations see how technology will drive their future. In this powerful keynote, Nicholas talks about the effect of digital ubiquity, 3-D printing, drones, nanotechnology and other enabling factors such as crowdfunding, crowdsourcing, open innovation and the power of hyper influential social networks that leverage game mechanics and socialization.
HEALTHCARE-Healthcare is the subject of massive disruptive innovation. Pharmaceuticals, medical devices, clinical delivery models and literally everything across the entire healthcare ecosystem is rapidly being destroyed. Clinical visits are being replaced by low-cost and convenient apps that leverage game mechanics and socialization. Connection architecture now rules the day and most clinical models have become defunct. In fact, clinical visits will be cut in half in just the next few years and as much as 20% of US hospitals will be bankrupt by 2020. Pharmaceuticals will be replaced with wearable technologies and real time bio monitoring will become the norm.
LEADERSHIP-Most executives are relying on millennial stakeholders to help them stay on track with emerging technologies. Unfortunately, the new leader must understand the trajectory of change as it relates to technology, social communities, connection architecture and disruptive innovation. Leaders cannot lead what they do not understand.
CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE-Do you know your customer node types? The best companies in the world do. Old-fashioned customer experience programs are dead and so are the companies that use them. Learn how to engineer the best customer experiences in your industry. The six secrets of customer experience mastering
AND THE NEW WORKFORCE-In the hyper-competitive marketplace organizations need to maximize their yield and productivity. Historically this productivity was in the form of putting bolts into chassis. Today productivity is about innovation and connection architecture. The innovation mandate requires that your organization create new experiences, environments, relationships and networks.

Nicholas J Webb
Nicholas really connected with our audience at SDL Innovate. He did a great job in preparation, and the audience could really understand how his message on how ‘hackers’ are reinventing the customer experience. It was a perfect motivator to get people to re-think how they connect and engage customers. Great job!

Nick Webb’s ability to visualize and articulate disruptive and continuous innovations that are likely to transform a traditionally slow to adapt pharma industry stirred the anxiety emotions within the executive audience during the Avoca Quality Consortium Annual Summit in May 2015 yet generated a high-energy and inspiring atmosphere for the opportunity to advance the development of medicine.
