  1. Digital Leadership in a Virtual World: Building the Successful Teams of Tomorrow

    2021 is putting everyone’s (digital!) leadership skills to the test. Leaders are under a lot of pressure to perform in the new global and virtual world of work. As we navigate a time of constant change, the only certainty is that more change is coming. Our response today will dictate our success tomorrow, requiring a new level of adaptable, agile and digital leadership.

    So how do we move past uncertainty – to adapt and thrive in a radically evolving future? How do we inspire individual team members to become great teammates while working remotely? What if our teams were not only driven to achieve goals with each other but for each other?

    With years of experience leading remote teams across North America and Europe, Lital Marom will show your organization how to build the teams and the leaders of tomorrow. Learn techniques and tools that you can apply immediately to cultivate high performance and agility in your remote workforce. Marom will introduce new ways to transform implicit assumptions into explicit action and help you set the foundation for an inclusive culture rooted in psychological safety.

    Together, these powerful strategies will not only maximize performance and improve team collaboration, but also help to uncover and capture new growth opportunities while mitigating the unexpected risks that will inevitably occur in our constantly changing world.

    Key Takeaways:

    • How to achieve effective communication and collaboration despite the geographical and
      physical distance of remote teams
    • How to engage and motivate your remote teams to establish a winning spirit
    • How to align individual goals with the team’s objectives in order to achieve outstanding
      business results
  2. Reimagine Your Future Post COVID-19: How to Foster Innovation & Agility

    COVID-19 is a big wake up call for most businesses to innovate and reconstruct their future, or they will be left behind. Organizations need to make significant changes to their traditional (incumbent) business model in order to build their breakthrough, future-ready business.

    In this talk Lital will take you through a new method of proactive leadership thinking that is relevant to all executives that operate in today’s high-velocity digital era of constant disruptive change.

     Lital’s practical and inspirational talk will provide you with the know-how and case-study examples to embark on your journey in a world of dramatic change post COVID-19. You will hear about a future-facing framework that creates new insights and a wide set of options for innovation and business model transformation.

  3. THINK BIG and ACT FAST: Winning in the Digital Economy

    A new breed of companies are growing and scaling at a pace never seen before. Many are reaching $1B market CAPs in a matter of years, some in a matter of months.

    During COVID crisis we see that many businesses are battling for survival, however there are also winners, those who thrive. Those are the Big Tech companies.

    Their secret? The Platform Business Model.

    For classic companies born before the digital era, it’s a whole new world where age, size, sales, and market CAP won’t guarantee market presence tomorrow.

    But there’s hope—Lital Marom shares the unique opportunities and key advantages that classic companies have over today’s modern start-ups. Opportunities and advantages to tap into new markets and new ources of revenue using the assets and capabilities that they already have.

    In this talk, Marom shows companies how to disrupt themselves before someone else does—by thinking BIG and acting FAST.

  4. Exponential Transformation: Shaping Digital Transformation in 2021

    Technology continues to disrupt our world. All Big Tech companies already crossed the $1 trillion market CAP threshold. The real impact of technology is not the disruption—we’ve been dealing with that for centuries. It’s the pace and unpredictability that disruption brings.

    Shifting from an incremental to an exponential strategy and adopting an exponential mindset is the first step towards real transformative growth. To drive lasting change, you will need to design a whole new roadmap across your entire organizational value chain, including people, technology, and business models.

    Recovery and Growth – how could you reignite your business’s future with new opportunities to grow. Recovery and growth are related to the design and deployment of business models to combine robustness and scalability.

    Exponential – how to amplify your impact by thinking more broadly and differently and using your network rather than linear thinking. Exponential is the power to multiply the effect of components (mindset, technology, business models) and not merely add them.

    During this presentation, you will get a real sense of the shifts (thinking models and business models) and the fundamental principles that separate successful companies from unsuccessful ones in the digital economy. Marom will explain how you could identify opportunities to innovate and transform your own business before someone else will.

  5. The Future of Work is HERE: Remote Everything

    Lital founded the Academy of Tomorrow with the mission to prepare leaders and their teams for the future of work.  She shares a toolkit that introduces a new approach to learning, empowering teams to adapt to change, discover their blind spots, unleash their creativity, and re-frame challenges as game-changing opportunities. As technology completely transformed our economy and workplace, the types of skills required of employees have also changed drastically and will continue to do so.

    In this talk, Lital Marom reveals how to think about up-skilling and re-skilling the workforce in order to make them digital transformation ready. Focusing on employee learning and skills is key.

  6. ATTENTION: The New Creative Currency

    How do startups like Instagram, WhatsApp, and AirBnb build massive user bases without a marketing team? How do individuals like Eric Ries build a huge global following without ever appearing on the metaphorical TED stage? How do self-published books like Fifty Shades of Grey gain worldwide appeal with zero marketing budget? This keynote answers these questions by laying out a strategic framework to leverage the network to market you or your business.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Learn about the foundation of the digital and creative economy
    • Hear about the latest innovation strategy that’s impacting and transforming the world
    • Get inspired by global case studies of creative transformation
