Keynote Speakers

Kai Kight

Classical Violinist Turned Innovator, Composer & Entrepreneur

Why do some people just play notes they are handed while others write new music in the world? In this captivating presentation, violinist Kai Kight will tackle this question, perform original music, and share the inspiring story of how he became an innovative composer in a field of conformity. This session will leave you feeling inspired to explore beyond what learning and development typically looks like, to find out what is truly possible when you take your future into your own hands and bring your unique ideas forward.

As a classical violinist turned innovative composer, Kai Kight uses music as a metaphor to inspire individuals and organizations across the world to compose paths of imagination and fulfillment. Inspired by his own mother who, when diagnosed with cancer, revealed regrets of not bringing her ideas to the world, Mr. Kight is on a mission to spark a global mindset shift in which ingenuity is the norm, not the exception. He is a graduate of Stanford University’s design and engineering program, a Mayfield Fellow, and a Kleiner Perkins Design Fellow. As a musician, Mr. Kight has performed his original music for thousands in venues across the world, from the White House to the Great Wall of China. As a speaker, he has created impactful experiences for audiences at conferences, companies, and universities internationally. Some of his clients include The Walt Disney Company, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and the Super Bowl–winning Seattle Seahawks.

Platon

Powerful Portraits: An Intimate Look at Humanity and Learning

During this keynote, you will explore the world of storytelling through the eyes of a photographer. Learn from portrait photographer Platon as he shares his experience photographing an eclectic mix of world leaders, celebrities, our men and women in the military, members of the civil rights movement, and human rights champions. You’ll be on a roller coaster of emotions—from laughter to tears—while hearing the most poignant and mesmerizing stories behind the photos. Platon answers the question “Who is this person?” behind each iconic photo, which will help you answer similar critical questions within the stories you need to tell in your work.

Platon is an award-winning photographer at The New Yorker. He has shot portraits for a range of international publications, including Rolling Stone, the New York Times Magazine, Vanity Fair, and over 20 covers for Time magazine; his 2007 photograph of Vladimir Putin for Time’s Person of the Year cover won first prize at the World Press Photo Contest. In 2011, Platon received a Peabody Award for collaboration on “Russia’s Civil Society” with The New Yorker and Human Rights Watch. He has published four books of his work: Platon’s Republic, Power, China: Through the Looking Glass, and Service. In 2013, he founded a nonprofit, The People’s Portfolio, to support human rights around the world. Platon currently serves as creative director at large for the Center for Civil and Human Rights; as a board member for arts and culture at the World Economic Forum; and as a steward for the Economic Growth and Social Inclusion Initiative.

Nancy Giordano

Strategic Futurist and Corporate Strategist

Learning and the Future of Work

Technology isn’t only shaping how we learn; it’s also shaping how we live and work. And the changes are just getting started. Artificial intelligence, robotics, virtual and augmented reality, drones, and other technologies are increasingly making certain job functions obsolete. Behaviors and attitudes are changing what we want to do for work, and how we want to learn to do our jobs. In this thought-provoking closing keynote, Nancy Giordano will examine how technology is changing the nature of work, how companies will need to adapt for this future, and what this means for learning and development professionals. You will explore both the advancing technologies and the critical shifts that organizations (and the training departments that support them) must confront to stay relevant in the future.

Nancy Giordano is a strategic futurist and corporate strategist who helps enterprise organizations and leaders meet the escalating expectations ahead. With her deep knowledge of the drivers shaping the future, she illuminates the ideas and strategies required for leaders to actively architect their future. Ms. Giordano has spent nine years as founder/CEO of Play Big, a strategic inspiration company, and has been described as one of the world’s top female futurists. Her extensive client list includes Safeway, Nestlé, Sprint, and many other Fortune 500 companies. Currently, she is collaborating on a project to bring a game-changing artificial intelligence platform to the world. She also leads a team to produce one of the globe’s largest TEDx Youth events, hosting over 1,000 attendees annually. Ms. Giordano and her team share bold ideas at CulturalAcupuncture.com, a regular feature of The Huffington Post.
