Former Apple Exec on Innovation

by Maddie Donnelly
Don Strickland, Former Apple and Kodak Executive

A recent Dell study revealed that 45 percent of business leaders fear they will be made obsolete in the next 3 to 5 years by “digital-born start ups.” If this is something keeping your board up at night, take a look at former Apple and Kodak executive Don Strickland.
Don is the mind behind the world’s first consumer digital camera, which he developed at Kodak but launched at Apple after Kodak’s board refused to endorse the revolutionary product. His speeches are full of insider stories and boardroom anecdotes from someone who’s “done it,” plus lessons for thriving in a time of unprecedented and embracing change before it makes you irrelevant. Take a look:

As Apple’s Vice President of Imaging and Publishing, he led the development of Apple from traditional print publishing to “new media” including music, video, and online.

His speech topics include:

  • How to Build a Really Great Company: Choose culture, strategy or innovation - and get it right
  • The Exponential Business Model: The new generation of business model is all about change, and lots of it
  • Leadership 3.0: Creating Values, trust and teamwork
