Introducing the “26 Disruptive Technology Trends for 2016 – 2018.” In this report, we’ll explore some of the disruptive trends that are affecting pretty much everything over the next few years at least those that I’m following. It’s not just tech, though. The report is organized by socioeconomic and technological impact. Obviously, this is not an exhaustive list of every technology and societal trend bringing about disruption on planet Earth. What follows thought definitely affects the evolution of digital Darwinism, the evolution of society and technology and its impact on behavior, expectations and customs.
Escape from the dark side of distractions to live a better life. Are you struggling with focus, procrastination, anxiety, self-esteem, forgetfulness, or creativity? From simple first steps to reclaiming your attention, to becoming more satisfied, inspired, and creative, this book will lead you through your own journey of lifescaling: redefining success on your own terms.
X explores why great products are no longer good enough to win with customers and why creative marketing and delightful customer service too are not enough to succeed. Brian shares why the future of business is experiential and how to create and cultivate meaningful experiences.
The End of Business As Usual examines each layer of the complex consumer revolution that is changing the future of business, media, and culture. As consumers further connect with one another, a vast and efficient information network takes shape and begins to steer experiences, decisions, and markets. It is nothing short of disruptive.
