Speaking Topics
  • Achieving Innovation and Breakthroughs

    Diamandis is a dynamic inspirational speaker who provides real value to his audience by showing them how to drive and incentivize breakthrough thinking within their company in order to achieve clear, measurable and objective results. Based on the success of the Ansari X PRIZE (which stimulated the creation of billion-dollar private spaceflight industry) and the success of the $10M Progressive Automotive X PRIZE, Diamandis explains how to incentivize breakthroughs. Diamandis explains how traditional thinking, risk-aversion and incrementalism will cause the demise of companies unable to cope with the coming decades of disruptive innovation. Through concrete examples and lessons, Diamandis addresses two options:

  • Internal

    How to create a culture of innovation within your company;

  • External

    How to incentivize the outside world to help you solve your biggest problems; Diamandis explains how the rapid growth of key exponential technologies (Nano, Info, Bio) are empowering individuals and small companies to do what only governments were able to achieve only a few decades ago. Such technologies will drive a period of significant disruption and/or opportunity depending on the companys mind-set. Diamandis ultimate message is that companies cannot remain stagnant. They must evolve or they will die.

An antidote to pessimism by tech entrepreneur turned philanthropist, Peter H. Diamandis. Since the dawn of humanity, a privileged few have lived in stark contrast to the hardscrabble majority. Conventional wisdom says this gap cannot be closed. But it is closingfast. The authors document how four forcesexponential technologies, the DIY innovator, the Technophilanthropist, and the Rising Billionare conspiring to solve our biggest problems. Abundance establishes hard targets for change and lays out a strategic roadmap for governments, industry and entrepreneurs, giving us plenty of reason for optimism.
