The Disruptive Future of Your Business

Feb 20, 2017

The disruptive future is coming faster than you can imagine and many businesses won’t survive the changes.

Face it, in the world of technology, your knowledge has a lifespan of about 18 months. And that’s shrinking fast.

Even if you don’t run your own business, to stay ahead of the game, you’ve got to learn and unlearn faster and you’ve got to chose a path that takes you where you want to go.

How do you keep your edge? What does business look like in the near future?

Keynote from Executive Strategy Skills Summit

Mark S A Smith: Welcome everybody, to Executive Strategy Skills Summit. I’m Mark S. A. Smith, I am truly honored that you’ve chosen to join me for the next two and a half days to work on your business, instead of just in your business. The reason why we are here is because we all want to grow. Everybody in this room wants to be better than who you are today, and yet who you are today is quite spectacular, because it got you to this place. I’m really honored by the people who’ve chosen to be here. Everybody in this room in their own right is extraordinary, is genius, has something spectacular to share with the planet, and we are all here to support each other. We’re all here to help each other grow. We’re all here to achieve what it is that we want to achieve.

I want to first of all recognize your willingness to do something that many other people aren’t, and that is to stop, take a breath, be grateful for what you created, and look forward to creating something even more amazing, more spectacular. That in itself is unusual and unique in the world of entrepreneurship. Most of the time we’re so caught up in being caught up that we don’t have that time, we don’t take that time. We don’t give ourselves the luxury of what’s required to move on, instead we work harder, and we work longer hours, and we answer more emails, and we do all these crazy things, when really what we need to do is stop. Take a breath, be grateful, and then plan the next most resourceful step. Congratulations, well done, it’s going to be an amazing two and a half days together.

I want to start today’s event, this two and a half day event, by a little bit of checking in with where we are, not with only with ourselves, but where we are in the planet. You know right now, it’s a crazy time in the world. The world is changing faster than you can imagine, and we will introduce ourselves soon, but I want to have this conversation first and put some things in context.

About two-thirds … No, everybody in this room is involved in some way in high-tech. Everybody, in some way, is a high-tech involved person. Here we have people that sell computers, we have people that use computers, and use a lot of other technology, but the world is changing faster than we can even imagine, and we are the people that are out there pushing the edge, helping people adopt this technology and grow with this technology.

Here’s a couple of things that I see going on. At the very beginning of this month, this January 2017, was one of the most widely publicized events in Las Vegas, what was it?
