Innovation: Disruption in the Digital Age
Disruption is dominated by data-driven tech giants who are entering into adjacent fields: Google into the automotive industry, Apple into the music industry, Facebook into the global telecom industry, and IBM Watson into healthcare. In this keynote Lital gives the audience a true understanding of the urgency of these disruptions. She explains the rate of technological change, where it’s going and how can you identify opportunities to innovate and transform your own business model before someone else will.

Platform Economy: Shaping Industry Structures
The growth of tech giants such as Google and Amazon has been impressive. Companies such as Uber and Airbnb grew from zero to dominance in only a few years. All the companies that emerged in the past decade have one fundamental thing in common that helps them scale exponentially and dominate markets – that’s the platform business model. This talk lays out the fundamental differences that set platforms apart and the key drivers for its success. Whether you’re building a platform business or not, you can’t succeed in today’s economy without understanding how platforms work.

Forces of Change
Today’s enterprises need to connect and engage with customers, partners and employees in new ways. The key to success for enterprises is to leverage the right business model as well as the relevant emerging technologies to create and to monetize their value.Lital customized her talk to focus on the leading business structure as well as technologies that you’ll need to consider to drive your business, digital transformation, and innovation. Industries that can have a custom focus for this talk include: Tourism/Travel, Automotive, Banking, Insurance and Education.

The Future of Mobility
Discussions about the future of mobility focus so much on the physical artifact — the car itself — while so much more will change in our every day life (beyond the car) in a world where we are driven around in electric cars instead of driving our own gas powered cars.In this keynote Lital lays out the critical changes that will take place in the new reality that is unfolding. From public infrastructure, the automotive value chain and energy, to finance (including insurance), the justice system, and even the transformation in shopping. Also making the new mobility ecosystem secure and resilient means tackling an ever-expanding range of cybersecurity issues, as innovations expose automakers, providers, and passengers to a whole new set of potential data breaches and worse.

The Future of Education: 21st Century Skills
The gap between the skills people learn and the skills people need is becoming more obvious, as traditional learning falls short of equipping students with the knowledge they need to thrive, according to the World Economic Forum. So, what separates individuals with strong 21st century skills from individuals competing without these skills?
