Recalibrate: How to Succeed in This Business Climate +

As business leaders face their biggest challenge ever, Geoff Colvin arms audiences with insights to help them lead their organizations into the future. He connects the dots to provide an unparalleled update on the economic, political, technological, and competitive forces driving business disruption – and opportunity. Geoff has an important message for business leaders gleaned from 40 years at Fortune: the companies who win most often have leaders who summon the courage to act in spite of great uncertainty. Those leaders stopped protecting the past and started inventing the future – and they did it faster than the competition. Geoff reveals how the most successful leaders are confronting and adapting to this business environment right now. Winning in business today demands extraordinary leadership acting on the best intelligence it can find. Geoff provides valuable insights wrapped in a message that is optimistic and energizing: Opportunity is more widely available than ever, he says, and someone is going to win – why shouldn’t it be you? --

Rebuilding the Economy – An Update +

No one could have imagined the turn of economic fortunes that are taking place in 2020. Coming back from such economic devastation will take time and every business leader is looking for valuable insights to help set their strategic course of action. In this talk, Geoff Colvin briefs his audience on where the U.S. and global economies are going. Trade, monetary policy, fiscal policy, government regulation, and global dynamics all factor into the equation. With Washington already having provided trillions of dollars in stimulus, what does the future look like and how should business leaders navigate the path forward? This is a timely talk updated with headlines from the day’s news. --

Humans: The Ultimate Competitive Advantage +

The coronavirus pandemic launched many companies that weren’t ready into a world of virtual work. It also transformed the way we think about relationships in the process. Couple that with robots and smart machines doing more of the work humans used to do – and doing it faster, cheaper, and better – and you have to ask: what’s the future of work and how do humans fit in? Based on research for his New York Times bestselling book Humans are Underrated, Geoff Colvin helps audiences understand how work is changing and the critical skills they’ll need most to adapt and compete going forward. The key skills are those of social collaboration: storytelling, social sensitivity, brainstorming, creating and innovating with others, leading, and above all – empathy. Geoff reveals what top organizations are doing now to build a competitive advantage by strengthening these capabilities. --

Talent is Overrated – How Great Performers Really Get Great +

Suppose most of what we believe about hard work and raw talent is wrong. That would mean most of us will never have the chance to perform as well as we could. Geoff Colvin, author of the groundbreaking international bestseller Talent Is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else, explains the surprising truths about great performers and relates them to real life in real organizations. He shows how most organizations value the wrong things – passion, honesty, and learning are more valuable than hours, IQ, or “native ability.”  Geoff demonstrates that world-class performance comes from behaviors that every person and organization can adopt. Those who apply these principles gain a tremendous competitive advantage. Geoff cites relevant examples to prove it and to launch an important conversation in your organization. --

Panel Moderator, Discussion Leader, Emcee/Host +

He’s played these roles for more than three decades at Fortune conferences worldwide.
