We are thrilled to announce that Fast Company Editor and Managing Director Bob Safian will open the event on Monday, February 4 with a keynote presentation entitled The Secrets of Generation Flux.
Bob has spent a lot of time analyzing what makes companies and executives successful in our ever-changing digital world. In this environment, where sitting still means becoming irrelevant, he has ID’d a group of people poised to thrive. Not defined by demographic, Generation Flux describes those who are willing to embrace the break-neck speed of change and take chances. So how does this group navigate through the chaos when there are no precedents for success?
At iKids, Bob will show attendees how, drawing on examples from digital industry leaders such as Apple and Facebook, as well as consumer products giants like Nike. He’ll cover why change needs to be welcomed, how to keep up with kid consumers, where the target is moving, and where the next opportunities lie.
