Building Value with Values

Building Value with Values (Talk)


It seems like everyone is promoting their business or organization as 'purpose driven', but what exactly does this mean? New audiences and customers are less interested slogans and more interested in results. Building with purpose means that you become a practitioner of your values in a way that distinctly fits your product, talents, location, and size. What problems can you fix in the world that no one else can. Those who fix the problems that exist outside of our balance sheets, who leverage their values,  see an increase in value.

  • Purpose takes practice

  • Beware the perils of virtue signals

  • There are problems only your company can solve

  • if you want to fast go alone. if you want to go fast go together



The Future Of People


The future of people (Talk)


By 2030 we will add another 1.2 Billion people to a planet that already houses 7.5 billion. We will require 50% more food, 45% more clean water, and 30% more power just to take care of our basic needs. All of which are currently in decline. The greatest inventions  (printing press, light bulb, automobile) were designed to serve humanity's most pressing needs, despite the fact that humanity didn't know it wanted them.  Designing the greatest inventions, companies, organizations, and ideas will require an understanding of the humanity's greatest needs, both physical and existential. We need to understand our poverty of meaning as well as our poverty means. The future of people talk will inspire debate and ideas for audiences interested in where we are going next.
