CES 2022 Should Have Been in the Metaverse: 4 Takeaways for Futurists & CEOs (LIVESTREAM)

February 18, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

| TIGER Talk

Please register by 10 pm on Thu Feb 17.
At 11 pm, we’ll email you a Zoom link to access the LIVESTREAM the next day.

In the words of our TIGER Talk speaker, Brad Griffith:

Do you know the hottest trend in your industry that will change the needs of your customers and alter your growth plans? Join me to hear what consumer technology will disrupt all of our industries over the next decade. From the Metaverse and blockchain to smart devices of every sort, I’ve seen some serious disruptive technology.

Disruption has become a norm in our lives. CES 2022 experienced yet another disruption after making a valiant effort to return to an in-person event this year. With numerous exhibitors dropping out last minute as the Omicron variant spiked unexpectedly, many attendees also chose to attend an admittedly sub-par virtual experience again this year.

My favorite author, Clayton Christensen, said it well when he said, “You may hate gravity, but gravity doesn’t care.” Much like COVID variants, technology keeps changing. It’s a force we all deal with, and it’s important that we learn to predict some of the changes, prepare for what we can, and then expect the unexpected.

Join me to hear about what industry titans and startup entrepreneurs know to be the trends and strategies that will shape our future work and personal lives.

For the past 15 years, I have loved attending the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas because it’s my opportunity to absorb trajectory-altering lessons and insights from industry experts and thought leaders. These insights have changed the way I approach business strategy and have enhanced many aspects of the way I live my life. Traditionally the largest technology trade show in the world, this year’s second-ever all-digital CES conference and trade show were different but still captivating.

If you are a strategic thinker leading a team into a potentially volatile future, this talk is a must. I promise to share quotes, trends, and transformational lessons that will help prepare you for the next evolutionary and revolutionary changes in your company.
