Invisible Influence: The Hidden Forces that Shape Behavior
Presenter: Jonah Berger
Drawing on research he conducted for his book Invisible Influence, Jonah Berger integrates studies of business, psychology, and social science to lift the cloak of invisibility from the driving forces behind our daily choices, transforming the way audiences see themselves and others. With this speech, Berger shows audiences how to, as Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh put it, "influence others, make smarter decisions, or just better understand the mystery that is human behavior." A speech brimming with ideas that will provoke deep reflection, Berger gives audiences the tools they need to capitalize on invisible influences.

The One Firm Firm
Presenter: Margaret Heffernan
Collaboration and innovation are vital skills in global business - but where do they come from? In this talk Margaret Heffernan will make the business case for collaboration, discuss the meaning and characteristics of collective intelligence, and how it is that great leadership teams function. Working across cultures, time zones and technology is logistically difficult but it's usually the human factors that make it hard for companies to achieve their aims. Everyone talks about collaboration but few know how to do it, what it feels like or what organizational structures enable - or disable - it. What they all know is that if they can't figure out how to do it will, others will.
