Jeff Busch, VP, Meetings Professional International
Testimonials

“I have always believed that the value and effectiveness of a presentation could be judged based on how well it managed to edify, to entertain, or to enlighten the audience. A good speaker will deliver on one of these key attributes. A great speaker will deliver on all three. Jeremy Gutsche delivered on all three. His ‘Get Better & Faster’ presentation at our recent CPABC Spring Leadership Conference was informative, it was entertaining, and it provided everyone with a framework that forced us to re-think our notions about how to find new opportunities for growth and success. His energy and dynamism are obvious, but more importantly, he backs up the performance with substance. I highly recommend him for anyone looking to gain unique and original insight into how to manage chaos and change.”

Artificial Intelligence
AI Is Happening Right Now Here’s How It Will Reshape Your Future
Artificial Intelligence isn’t the future—it’s now. Founder of Trend Hunter and consultant to companies like NASA, Visa, Adidas, and McDonalds, innovation oracle Jeremy Gutsche wants to redirect the way you think about your future, which will inarguably be mechanized by and around AI. In this dazzling, fast-paced talk, Gutsche guides you and your audience through the different forms of AI that we’ll be working with, and how they’ll change the way we interpret and use data, modify interfaces, and eventually move beyond human intelligence. Gutsche outlines the projects coming down the pipeline, including mind-reading technology and bio-enhancements that can help people walk, improve vision, and even turn our eyes into literal cameras. In light of these massive advancements, Gutsche asks: how can you harness AI to your advantage? It can improve recommendations, personalization, and content. It can help us gain new insights into our data, and identify useful patterns. It can also make the world a more sustainable, environmentally-friendly place. Gutsche will show you how to envision AI as a significant part of your future—and then implement it.

Corporate Culture
Creating a Culture of Innovation How to Make Innovation Actually Happen

Culture isn’t just one aspect of the game, easily brushed aside as superfluous. It’s the entire game. In fact, culture drives everything within a company—from the words we use to describe success and failure, to the ways we interact and communicate within and without. And subtle shifts in how we create our communities can mean total transformation—for the worse, and for the better. Join Jeremy Gutsche, an expert in change leadership, as he shows you how the world’s most inspiring companies organize their missions, values, and ethics, and how they orchestrate unique environments that breed success. The core of any progressive company culture lies in finding your purpose, he argues—the passion, urgency, and importance behind your brand. How well have you expressed your principles? How deeply embedded are your values? How do you inspire loyalty and dedication—and give back to the people who take up your cause? Based on over 1,000 interviews with innovation leaders, and tens of thousands of people who have taken his Innovation Assessment, Gutsche unpacks the value of defining, and upholding, a culture that makes clients, partners, and employees get excited about what you do.

* Note: this session includes a free innovation assessment for each individual as well as a free group innovation assessment. The assessment will provide each individual with 10 pages of specific insights into how they innovate and lead differently than their peers, which will help to personalize the session. You can also receive a group innovation assessment to understand more specifically how your group compares to the world’s top innovators, enabling Gutsche to better tailor his content, takeaways, and workshops to your company.
