Relationship Economics Delivered numerous corporate, association and academic forums, this session focuses on the quantifiable value of business relationships and provides a systematic process for identifying, building, nurturing, and leveraging personal and professional relationships. Nour introduces his battle-tested best practices, based on his own personal experiences that bridge the gap between relationship creation and relationship capitalization.
Return On Impact David Nour demonstrates how social media is swinging the power pendulum in the direction of members and customers, leaving many industries and organizations out of the equation. Return on Impact isn’t about Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube. It’s about socially enabling organizations to listen louder, think faster, and respond to changing market dynamics, helping them reinvent, adapt, and relate in new and powerful ways.
Adaptive Innovation How do you create greater market value than your competitors? How do you help your channel partners differentiate your unique products or services? Simple – shake up your value chain! Adaptive innovation is destructive by nature. In order to create sustainable competitive advantage, companies must develop a relationship-centric culture. They must have the audacity to fail and the ability to learn from those failures.
Sharing Economy: The Disruptive Nature of Collaborative Consumption What do Airbnb, Lending Club, and City CarShare have in common? They’re examples of disruptive innovation in peer-to-peer business models, empowered by real-time insights, highly personalized sharing, global distribution, and reuse of excess capacity in goods and services. Add in a set of values like extreme trust, transparency, economic empowerment, creative expression, authenticity, community resilience, and human connection and the result is a marked increase in the value of these goods and services. Will your industry be next? What are you doing about it?
