Harnessing Headwinds of Change

Nicole MalachowskiFirst Woman Thunderbird Pilot and White House Fellow/Adviser

In flying, headwinds slow you down. At their worst, they cause you to change your plans and impact the effectiveness of weapons in combat. Headwinds demand that pilots be resilient and resourceful, literally on the fly. “Headwinds are the perfect metaphor for the change impacting organizations and individuals today,” says 21-year Air Force veteran Nicole Malachowski.  A former fighter squadron commander and mission-ready pilot in three operational fighter squadrons and the first woman to fly on the Air Force Thunderbirds, Nicole has the perfect message to inspire audiences to think differently about the headwinds of change they face—organizationally and personally. Drawing on her extraordinary Air Force career, Nicole offers lessons on leadership, followership, and overcoming adversity. She weaves storytelling with breathtaking video from the cockpit of her jet as the Thunderbirds execute precision turns, rolls, and loops—all just 36” from one another at 400 mph and just 300 feet off the ground. Nicole’s keynote helps audiences ignite their own indomitable spirit in order to succeed far beyond what they might dream. “Failure isn’t fatal,” she says, “it’s the price of entry if you want to achieve something great.”

Healthcare 3.0: How Technology is Driving the Transition to Prosumers, Platforms and Outsurance

Over the coming decades, humanity will encounter some of the greatest transitions any generation has ever had to face. Technological disruption is reshaping every part of our lives… every business, every industry, every society, even what it means to be “human”…..Exponential technologies are on the cusp of solving some of humanity’s biggest challenges, and healthcare is set to be one of the chief beneficiaries. We are already in the midst of this medical revolution driven by the convergence of exponential hardware, software, communication and biomedical technologies. There has never been a better time to resolve the cost, quality and access challenges that have plagued healthcare for the last few decades. In this keynote, Pillay explores some of the key exponential technologies, including Artificial Intelligence, that are set to impact healthcare and how the convergence of these technologies is set to transform patients to prosumers (producers of care), current pipeline approaches to care delivery systems to platform based systems and finally a payment transformation from the current insurance based approach to an outsurance (getting paid to maintain health) based approach.

Embrace the Shake: Transforming Limitations into Opportunities

Phil Hansen, Multimedia Artist, Speaker, Author and Innovator

Success, especially in today's fast-changing business environment, depends on our ability to make "creativity and innovation" a continuous process. Leaders want to know how their teams can rise above any challenge and succeed no matter what comes their way. Whether it's to embrace change, overcome obstacles, sustain growth, or take your success to the next level, they want to "Embrace the Shake".

The term "Embrace the Shake" is coined from Artist Phil Hansen's personal story of transformation. After developing a career-ending tremor in his drawing hand, Phil embraced his "shake" both physically and metaphorically by redefining his limitation as an impetus for creativity. Phil not only restored his artistic abilities, he became a much more creative and innovative artist than ever before. Phil's powerful message of finding creativity within limitations will inspire you to stop looking on the outside, and start looking inside yourself for resources that can transform your challenges into opportunities for success.
