Keynote Topic #1

The experiential organization

How The Best Organizations Are Winning the War for Talent and Crushing the Competition

Investment in employee engagement has never been higher yet scores have never been lower, how can that be the case?

For decades we have been investing in short-term “adrenaline shot” programs such free food or work from home Friday’s with no impact for employees or the organization.

Instead of forcing people into outdated workplace practices the world’s top companies are redesigning work around their people by focusing on three environments: culture, technology, and the physical workspace.

Based on Jacob’s ongoing research of 252 organizations, he will share why employee experience is the next big area of investment, what the top companies are doing, and how you can go about creating an Experiential Organization. The future of work is all about the employee experience.

Why and how the workplace is changing

  • The three employee experience environments: culture, physical space, and technology
  • Employee experience vs employee engagement How to design and create employee experiences
  • What some of the world’s most forward  thinking organizations are doing What employees care about most in the workplace
Keynote Topic #2

The Future of Leadership

Most leadership discussions and research focus on the present,however in this rapidly changing world we must focus on what it will take to be a great leader in the next 10 years. This presentation is based on Jacob’s new groundbreaking book coming out at the end of 2019 which is based on interviews with over 100 CEOs around the world and a general population survey of thousands of people. The outcome of this research reveals the most crucial skills and mindsets that individuals must possess if they want to be effective leaders in the future of work.


In this talk Jacob will share insights from his CEO interviews and research, along with plenty of stories, examples, and frameworks for how the audience can be great future leaders.
