Be a Future-Shaper: Re-Imagine the Boundaries of Your Business

In today’s border-less business environment, you are either actively shaping the future of your market space, or you are left in the wake of others who are. Gabor George Burt reveals how you can be among the future-shapers. His Slingshot Framework enables you to redraw market boundaries in a way that assures the ongoing relevance and growth of your organization.

Through his engaging, interactive talks and workshops, Burt distills the complexity of strategy formation into the simple, intuitive steps of the Slingshot Framework, teaching you to stretch the definition of your business in order to discover new markets of high relevance and impact, transform the weakest points of your customers’ experience into the strongest, aim beyond satisfying your customers by keeping them continuously infatuated, and embrace the “Shortcut to Meaningful Innovation”, by unlocking powerful combinations of already existing components that lead to boundary-breaking, new customer value.

Rocket Fuel: Unleashing the Collective Imagination of Your Organization

We are in the midst of an acute creativity crisis. A survey of 100,000 people by interesting.org found that 98% believe creativity is important for their work, yet only 45% consider themselves creative and a mere 2% think that their place of work fosters creativity. The challenge is formidable.

The good news, says Gabor George Burt, is that creativity is the immensely powerful, abundant and completely free resource we all possess. The bad news is that creativity is vastly underutilized by both individuals and organizations. Through his engaging, interactive talks and workshops, you will learn to capture and channel collective creative thinking as a key driver of your organization’s growth and success. You will gain the tools to link systematic creativity with smart strategy, achieve strong customer loyalty with expanded relevance and sustained growth, align your organization with the pursuit of meaningful innovation, and maximize the engagement and intellectual contribution of your workforce.

Strategy of Innovation: Where are your Blue Waters?

Most companies are unable to find Blue Oceans – market spaces all to themselves. And if they do, they face the difficult challenge of maintaining them and discovering new Blue Oceans. So how can you find ongoing market spaces of high customer value and no competition? You create them.

A leading expert on Blue Ocean strategy, and the architect of the Slingshot Framework – which is the evolution of his BOS work – Gabor George Burt exposes the strategic mindset and critical innovation path to creating continuous ‘Blue Waters’, allowing your organization to achieve high growth, sidestep competition, and shape its environment on 3 levels simultaneously: Optimize and refresh your current value proposition, Expand into broader market space of heightened relevance, and Create new value proposition at intersections with other industries.

Slingshot: Re-Imagine Your Business, Re-Imagine Your Life

What if you could reignite your childhood creativity in a systematic way, to overstep self-imposed limitations and to discover what you are really capable of achieving?

Continuous innovation is both necessary and exhilarating, and we all possess the inner capacity for it. Our capacity has simply been buried and lays dormant within us. As children, our imagination knew no boundaries. We would grab a slingshot and be instantly transformed into a warrior, a spy, a huntress, or protector of treasure. But as we grew older, our intellectual comfort zone shifted from that of continuous exploration and inquisitiveness to that of conformity with accepted norms of perception. All is not lost, however. We just need the right framework to re-engage our youthful creativity and re-imagine boundaries: THE SLINGSHOT FRAMEWORK.

Find out why you need to infatuate your target audience and to provide them continuous lifestyle enrichment; how to become market-driving and to shape your offering for broadest relevance; and how to channel your reclaimed creativity into smart strategy. Launch yourself to new business and personal heights and have fun doing it.
