Keynote topics

Building an AI Innovation Ecosystem
Artificial intelligence is increasingly being discussed as a powerful driver of competitive advantage. Yet what many business leaders do not realize is that the road to successful AI innovation holds many pitfalls.  This talk discusses how to get started and what leaders can do to move towards building a successful AI innovation ecosystem.

Corporate Governance & AI Leadership
While artificial intelligence holds considerable promise for firms to improve their competitive advantage, the majority of corporate boards are not yet prepared to govern artificial intelligence. This session presents insights from Robin’s research on how chairmen and board directors should think about supervising AI-driven innovation while governing AI implementation within their firm and across their ecosystem.

Leading in a Networked World
Power is increasingly understood to be at the center of networks and not at the top of formal hierarchies. This talk presents some of the core principles of social networks and enables participants to understand how they can leverage informal networks both within their own organization as well as throughout their organization’s greater ecosystem for increased innovation and performance. 

Scenario Thinking
While all our knowledge is about the past, we must make strategic decisions for an increasingly uncertain future. This session presents a number of scenario thinking tools and a workshop that enables individuals and organizations to better manage uncertainty and leverage changing competitive environments.

Driving the Circular Economy
Traditional supply chains and linear “take-make-waste” models of thinking are giving way to more sustainable and circular economic models. This talk discusses the benefits of shifting to a circular economy and how some organizations are already creating inter-organizational partnerships and implementing blockchain technology to drive the circular economy.

An Ocean of Innovation Opportunity
The United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development is set to begin 2021. In this talk, Robin presents the numerous sustainable innovation opportunities that the ocean holds through the application of digital technologies, such as artificial intelligence and drones, to industries such as food, healthcare, and energy, as well as her own efforts in this area as an impact entrepreneur in Portugal.

Digital Transformation of Society & Future of Labor

This talk discusses how digital technologies and their convergence with other technologies are not only disrupting business models and industries but also all aspects of society, such as how we live, work, and play, which in turn creates new opportunities for value creation as we move into the fourth industrial revolution.
