Why do we come up with the best ideas when we’re lying in bed at night or taking a shower? It’s because there are few moments during our hectic days when we have the time to be still and actually think about the big picture. If you find yourself caught up in the process and routine of everyday business life, CompTIA ChannelCon keynote speaker Lisa Bodell is a must-see.
Bodell is the founder and chief executive officer of futurethink, an award-winning innovation firm that helps businesses embrace change and become world-class innovators. She is the author of the best-selling and award-winning book “Kill the Company: End the Status Quo, Start an Innovation Revolution.”
“Lisa Bodell’s message is an inspirational call to arms and an insightful examination of new ways to think and work,” said Kelly Ricker, senior vice president of events and education for CompTIA. “By changing and simplifying our approach, we can achieve more and become better innovators.”
Bodell founded her organization on the principle that everyone has the power to innovate — they just need the knowledge and tools to know how. As a globally recognized expert on the topics of innovation and driving change, she has helped thousands of senior leaders — from companies like the New York Stock Exchange, Merck, HBO and Lockheed Martin — unlock new potential and create new value.
At ChannelCon, Bodell will explore why winning innovators embrace change, and what is holding us back from seeing the big picture. Her keynote presentation is scheduled for the morning of Tuesday, August 5.
ChannelCon will take place August 4 to 6 at the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort and Spa. This year’s conference features a power-packed agenda of educational sessions, networking opportunities, keynotes, panels and working groups.
“We’ll explore the emerging markets, money-making solutions and innovative technologies that are transforming the IT channel,” said Ricker. “Attendees will leave Phoenix with everything they need to connect to a smarter future.”
