Xclusive Facts about X, Rethinking Books in a Digital World, The Magic of Disney Storyboarding, and the Rise of Experience Design

Stumbled across this unfinished post, sitting in my draft folder for years. Figured, I’d blow the dust off of it and share it with you today. When X: The Experience When Business Meets Design was released in October 2015, it was ahead of its time. Executives didn’t yet understand that the world was becoming more and more digital, and with it, digital Darwinism would reshape the nature of human dynamics and market evolution. It would ultimately take a global pandemic…

As an Author on Innovation and Digital Darwinism, I Realized that I Needed to Upgrade My Work

As an Author on Innovation and Digital Darwinism, I Realized that I Needed to Upgrade My Work

As someone who studies the impact of innovative technologies on markets and societies, I found it ironic to write books on the subject that were strongly rooted in traditional channel formats. I struggled with the paradox of urging people to challenge conventions when I clearly couldn’t follow suit. So, going back to the my first solo book, ENGAGE!, in 2010, and with every book following, I borrowed from iconic Hollywood trailers to promote each title. But the books themselves, were still…

Announcing My Next Book: X, The Experience When Business Meets Design

It is with great pride, relief ,mixed with a bursting sensation of anxiousness, that I announce my next book, X: The Experience When Business Meets Design. It’s been a long road to get here. I started writing this book 3.5 – 4 years ago. I couldn’t get my mind fully around the subject matter and instead willfully embraced my avoidance behavior syndrome and ended up writing a book that wasn’t in my plan at all, What’s the Future of Business…

Q&A: Why the Future of Business is Shared Experiences

Jeff Ashcroft (@JeffAshcroft) along with @TheSocialCMO host the popular #MMchat (Marketer Monday) every week at 8 p.m. eastern on Twitter. It’s a rapid fire exchange not only between the organizer and the guest but also everyone following along #MMchat. It certainly makes for exciting dialog in real-time and also later when the full transcript is published. I recently joined them to discuss the future of business and why now is the time to become the hero in your hero’s journey….
