Linda's Signature Presentation
“What Now?” Creating Change to Stay Competitive
People and businesses tend to lock into the practices that gave them their initial successes, seeking to defend and extend their current products and services against all comers. The world is changing at a pace that requires planned disruption, proactive reinvention and a strategy to handle everything unplanned that provokes the question, “What Now?” This thought-provoking presentation shows practical ways to use short-term disruptions to generate long-term results. It’s a valuable message for any person or business that wants to go where the market will be tomorrow instead of remaining where it is today.
- Stop waiting for the question. Create the answers.
- Don’t think outside of the box. Blow it up.
- Quit defending and extending. Reinvent what you uncover.
