#EnelFocusOn: e-Mobility and The Future of Transportation

The future of e-mobility (full presentation on demand) Our climate is changing.

Obviously some are easier than others but nonetheless important. Without getting into the politics or the science of climate change, I do want to share an experience about one of the many areas of innovation aimed to curb it, eMobility. As Tesla Found Elon…

Innovation Starts When You Step Outside Your Comfort Zone

Chase Jarvis is a long-time friend. A real friend. He’s also someone I deeply admire.

The Future of Business is Under Construction and You are Its Architect

WTF? What’s the future…? Disruptive technologies are hailed as catalysts for business transformation. But they are merely enablers for defining a new genre of market relevance and leadership.
