From our TIGER Talk presenter, Brad Griffith of Buckeye Innovation:

“Our customers, employees, and shareholders are humans, contrary to how we sometimes treat them!

Rather than treating them impersonally, like users, resources, or even robots, we have an opportunity to recognize their humanity and address their innate need for security. The Consumer Technology Association set a theme for the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that encouraged exhibitors, presenters, and attendees to meet that human need for security.

Please join me to learn the consumer technologies that will disrupt all of our industries over the next decade and how we can apply technology creatively to improve equity, access, and belonging for all. From the Metaverse and blockchain to smart devices of every sort, I’ve seen some serious disruptive technology.

CES 2023 saw a big resurgence in exhibitors and attendees, marking a significant recovery from 2022. I attended virtually again this year with more comprehensive remote access to sessions than in any previous year. I will share highlights and lessons from the best keynotes and panel discussions as well as will review the practicality of several intriguing gadgets.

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 third digital CES conference and trade show were different but still captivating. Next year I hope to return in person.

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.“
