Leading Innovation and Change

  • The Wharton Club of DC’s Innovation Summit on May 7th will help transform the way you think about and lead innovation—the #1 concern according to research among top CEOs today.
  • Keynoter David Morey, DMG Global Chairman, has a Who’s Who of Fortune 100 companies, 19 winning global presidential campaigns, and 5 Nobel Peace Prize winners. He’s also one of the world’s top magicians and best-selling author of The Underdog Advantage, The Leadership Campaign, Creating Business Magic, and most recently Innovating Innovation.
  • In his keynote, David will describe the insurgent model his first corporate client, Steve Jobs, the Apple co-founder, helped to inspire and develop, and how it’s added billions of dollars of value to some of the world’s fastest growing, most innovative companies. Learn how to “play offense,” control the competitive dialogue, define your own leadership brand, transform your culture, and add new insurgent growth. Innovation aspect? David will use magic to amuse and inspire you, and to illustrate his points.
  • Today, one thing is clear: If you don’t use the Insurgent Advantage yourself, it will be used against you.
