What Whitney Johnson Talks About:

Disrupt Yourself®: Putting the Power of Disruptive Innovation to Work
The idea is simple, but powerful: disruptive companies and ideas upend markets by doing something truly different – they see a need, an empty space waiting to be filled, and they dare to create something for which a market may not yet exist. An expert in driving innovation via personal disruption, Whitney Johnson will demonstrate how you can put the power of disruptive innovation to work. To help your company in unexpected ways, dare to innovate. Dream big dreams. Do something astonishing. Disrupt yourself.  In this session, Whitney Johnson will share stories of disruption and will teach you how powerful disruption can be in your organization’s evolving reinvention.  Johnson builds on her investment background as co-founder of two early stage venture firms, and an award –winning equity analyst to provide a fresh perspective on innovation and change.

Audience members will leave with practical tips and concrete action steps for how to:

  • Drive innovation throughout their organization; 
  • Move into the sweet spot of their personal S-curve;
  • Use the S-curve as a tool for understanding the psychology of disruption; and
  • Accelerate or decelerate innovation and change with a variety of variables.
