Accelerating growth requires a new way of thinking about overcoming obstacles and acting on new opportunities.

Accelerating Growth in a Recovering Economy: Taking Control of Your Future and Capitalizing on the Next Wave of Technological Change
In a recovering economy, accelerating growth requires a new way of thinking about overcoming obstacles, as well as identifying and acting on new opportunities. Often, change comes from the outside in, forcing us to react by slipping into a crisis management mode and continuously putting out fires. This presentation is about opportunity management—identifying the driving forces of predictable change and using innovative strategies to drive growth from the inside out.
Leading With Strategic Foresight and Certainty: Anticipating New Opportunities and Predicting Problems Before they Happen
In times of unprecedented change and uncertainty, we need to ask ourselves, “What am I certain about?” Strategies based on uncertainty and hope equal high levels of risk. Strategies based on certainty dramatically reduce risk and produce superior results. Hindsight always brings lament. You can never go back and change your past decisions and actions. Strategic foresight takes your vision to a new actionable level by adding the events that will happen in the future. Over the past quarter century, Daniel Burrus has established a worldwide reputation for his exceptional record of accurately predicting how technological, social, and business forces are converging to create enormous, untapped opportunities. Based on his revolutionary method of identifying Hard Trends from Soft Trends, and Permanent Changes from Cyclical Changes, attendees learn how to both anticipate and capitalize on new opportunities, as well as predict problems long before they happen. In addition, they will learn how to use the new tools and rules of leadership to accelerate growth.
