Intentional Evolution: How People & Companies Navigate The Future & Thrive

Thursday, March 19, 2020 – 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM – Fetzer Center (Western Michigan University)

Due to health concerns with social gatherings regarding COVID-19, the AMA Southwest Michigan Mixer has been postponed.  We apologize for this inconvenience. Please visit our website for updates regarding rescheduling and future events.

The program includes aspects from other topics, including “The Future of Work” and “Lessons From World-Class Innovators & Creators,” with relevance to the client’s particular industry and challenges. With a grounding in real- world experience, the best thinking from tech and business luminaries, incl: Josh Bayliss (CEO Virgin), Tom Kelly (Founder IDEO), John Sculley (Business), Carol Smith (IBM Watson), is used along with example Case Studies to inform attendees how they can prepare as individuals and teams to meet the challenges of the future. 

Interest and benefits to attendees: As a result of the uncertainties and challenges facing businesses today, a significant percentage of once (or currently) healthy businesses will encounter significant difficulty operating with a “business as usual” mindset. Yet the reality is that these inevitable changes concurrently bring new opportunities to those organizations that are able to understand, respond and leverage them. However, a successful future is not arbitrary nor is it reached with a haphazard approach. Rather there are proven strategies that can be learned and methodologies that can be applied to not just survive – but thrive in the future.  The first 40 to register will get a copy of Tom’s latest book, “Evolve or Die.”
