SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - September 14, 2016 - Constellation Research, the advisory and futurist firm helping clients transform business models through disruptive technologies, unveiled the headlining keynote speakers for its sixth annual executive innovation conference, Connected Enterprise. Vint Cerf, one of the “fathers of the Internet” and chief Internet evangelist at Google, will anchor a keynote panel alongside Doc Searls, distinguished author and journalist, and Mei Lin Fung, social change agent and co-founder of the People Centered Internet. Dan Heath, founder of the Change Academy and best-selling author of “Made to Stick,” and Whitney Johnson, award-winning author of “Disrupt Yourself,” will also join the main stage. The exclusive event for innovation and digital transformation leaders will take place October 26-28, 2016 at the Ritz-Carlton in Half Moon Bay, California.
“With 55 percent of the Fortune 500 in the red in 2015 and 52 percent turned over since 2000, every organization needs to seek insights on how to succeed in the new world of digital transformation,” said R “Ray” Wang, founder and chairman of Constellation Research. “The search for growth must come from innovating new business models, and our conference brings together executives who seek digital success in the post-sale, on-demand attention economy.”
Connected Enterprise is an immersive three-day summit that features interactive panels, 1:1 interviews with visionary market makers, executive exchanges, fireside chats and disruptive technology demos. Executives from across the globe, including leaders from American Cancer Society, Atlanta Hawks, Bayer, Capgemini, Clorox, Intel, General Electric, Google, Johns Hopkins University, Salesforce, San Francisco Giants, Tesla, The University of Texas System, and the U.S. federal government, attend the conference and leave with the knowledge and network to instill a culture of innovation and transformation for their organizations.
