    Topics 
  1. 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.

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

    In the past decades a new breed of companies has been growing and scaling at a pace never seen before. Many reached $1B market CAPs in a matter of years, some in a matter of months. Their secret? A platform business model.

    Interestingly, we are seeing that even though the economy is tanking from the impact of the COVID-19 and many businesses are battling for survival, there are also winners, those who thrive. Those winners are the Big Tech Companies. Those companies are built differently than most and they are leveraging unique building blocks that allow them to scale and thrive amidst our current crisis.

    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 sources of revenue using the assets and capabilities that they already have.

    In this talk, Lital Marom shows classic companies how to disrupt themselves before someone else does—by thinking big and acting fast.

  3. Shaping Digital Transformation in 2021 and Beyond

    In this presentation, Lital will explore the shifts (thinking models and business models) and the fundamental principles that separate successful companies from the rest in our digital economy.

    As companies hurry to develop new digital capabilities to build resilience and retool for the post-pandemic world, setting up your digital transformation foundation is critical now more than ever.

    During this presentation, Lital will explain how you can future-proof the foundation of your business so that you could systematically explore new opportunities to innovate and transform your business before someone else does.

    Takeaways:

    • Explore new ways to structure and operate your business to unlock its potential.
    • Hear how the world’s most disruptive innovators are reshaping their world and yours.
    • Learn about the importance of exponential (vs. linear) thinking and how it can serve you to grow and transform your future.

     

  4. 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.

  5. 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
