Lifescale: Self-Innovation and Exponential Growth
The Great Hack (behind the screens) – our favorite apps and devices have changed our lives for better and also for the worse. It’s the latter where the story gets interesting. Attention is a currency. The more of it that we give something – the more it can be monetized. But it’s just a matter of time before our attention moves on to something else. Using what’s called Persuasive Design, many of the biggest networks and device manufacturers continue to invest in changing our behaviours – to engage us, lock us in and keep us consuming and sharing more and more every day. Brian shares the secrets of what’s happening “behind the screens” to reveal how we were hacked, what it’s doing to us and how to take control.

Defeating digital distractions – social media, notifications, alerts, scrolling, the constant tugging of our devices, we are not only always-on, we are always distracted. Those distractions speed up our lives, thin our presence and stifle our capabilities. Over time, distractions take a deep (and deepening) toll on us – namely loss of creativity, memory, focus, productivity, originality, happiness and more. In this important session, Brian shares how to gain new skills, change our behaviors and live everyday toward a more creative, productive and happy life.

Marketing Innovation
CX and the A.R.T. of Engagement – customer experience is the sum of all interactions a customer has with your brand throughout their journey and lifecycle. As such, experience is the new marketing – and marketing is the new CX. Brian shares how to redesign touchpoint to meaningfully engage people through the modern customer journey.

The P2P (People to People) Manifesto – there is no more B2B or B2C when it comes to engaging customers and stakeholders. It’s now about P2P…people to people. Brian shares the pillars of his “P2P Manifesto” – key insights and case studies help CMOs, CDOs and CX and marketing executives reimagine human-to-human engagement.
