Is our “pause button economy” eating us alive… or setting us free? New York Times bestselling author, inductee into the Speaker Hall of Fame and Olympian, Vince Poscente has the answer.

“We will not thrive by ‘coping’ with our present economic situation. Seeking to manage our way to bottom line results is not the way. We will individually and organizationally thrive by embracing and harnessing the speed of change around us.” Vince Poscente

Now is the time to use Vince Poscente’s against-all-odds Olympic strategy for audiences challenged, overwhelmed and even – scared. Poscente’s invigorating perspective is timely and perfect for groups seeking good news.

A business guy who decided he would compete in the Olympics four years after his 26th birthday, at the age of 30 Poscente was vying for Gold, skiing at an incredible 135 mph on skis.  With his acumen for fast results, he soon became a prolific author, consultant and speaker, guiding corporations around the globe toward accelerated change management.

Unraveling the notion that in today’s world we need to ‘hang-on,’ Poscente illustrates how harnessing the speed of change becomes a competitive advantage. Through powerful examples and edge of your seat stories, your audience will be energized and ready to tackle the tough challenges ahead of them.

“Simple motivation is not the only thing audiences want to hear today. My job is to light the path of how we get through this together – in short order. This starts by doing what the competition is not willing to do.”

The Age of Speed II (45 to 90 minutes)

At the core of Poscente’s message about embracing speed is the claim that the continued acceleration of business and life is inevitable. If we cannot stop it, perhaps we should consider putting it to work for us. On a mass scale, we have developed a peculiar love-hate relationship with speed: though we want more, faster, now, we have adopted a mindset that speed is corrosive. In effect, we have decided that though we want speed, we do not like it. Poscente turns that perspective upside down and challenges audiences not to resist acceleration, but instead to turn the momentum of its inevitable rush to their advantage.

Vince shares the research he did for his New York Times best-selling about how companies and individuals are responding in different ways to the speed of business today.
• Jets - very agile companies that harness the speed of business and turn it to their advantage
• Bottle Rockets - companies that embrace speed, are going fast but are not smart about it
• Zeppelins - companies that resist the speed of business
• Balloons - companies that have chosen to live outside the age of speed – they don’t seek it and they don’t need to
 
Unraveling the notion that in today’s world we need to slow down, Poscente illustrates why harnessing the power of speed is the ultimate solution for those seeking less stress, less busyness, and more balance.

Who Benefits:  Organizations and individuals that are going through major change at a rapid-fire pace will especially benefit from Vince’s message.

“Focusing on change alone is a mistake.  Let’s redirect our focus on embracing the speed in our more-faster-now culture.  You don’t cope with change...you embrace it.  What is critical is the next level...not coping with speed but harnessing it.  Execution is not about what to do…it is about how to do it…that’s what creates innovative execution.”  Vince Poscente
