After first presenting at our 2015 EMEA Regional Conference, we are thrilled that MJ Petroni returned as our keynote speaker at the 2015 Americas Best Practices Conference in San Diego, California on 14-18 September 2015:
Cyborgs and the Social Network of Things
Join Cyborg Anthropologist MJ Petroni on an exploration of what might happen if we bring decision-making power to the increasingly-connected devices in our lives—including what it means for culture, business strategy, ethics and talent—as an exploration of what the opportunities of digital business really might be.
Full Spectrum Innovation: Digital Business in Action
Digital businesses are easy to talk about, but hard to build. Strategic partnerships are necessary in an age of big data, fickle customer bases and previously impossible scale. How do we really look at tapping into a full spectrum of innovation through strategic partnership and platform-based thinking, without straying from our organizations’ most valuable DNA?
MJ Petroni is a consultant and researcher based in San Francisco, California. He is the owner and founder of Causeit, Inc., a firm which helps companies and individuals discover authentic narratives around which their teams, customers and industry partners can rally—facilitating cultures of innovation, real listening, straight talk and shared success.
MJ is the Cyborg Anthropologist in Residence for NTT, the world’s largest telecom, and also serves as a founding advisor of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s Global Digital Financial Services Platform for poverty alleviation. He has offered tangible startup support, team alignment interventions, brand strategy, ethnographic research, strategic product creation and coaching to over 250 clients ranging from global financial and education companies to individual thought leaders.
MJ is an alumni of Lewis and Clark College, where he focused on the emerging field of Cyborg Anthropology, with minors in English, Latin American Studies and Gender.
