Jay Acunzo – Be the Exception

1 Programs By This Presenter

We live in a world flooding with best practices, conventional wisdom, and trendy tactics. Every day, dozens of supposed “right” answers both internally and externally promise that they will deliver our best results. It’s all we can do to simply keep up, let alone take control, get proactive, and finally do our best work. It’s like we’re trapped. We’re stuck on this always-spinning wheel of reactive decisions and commodity work, and this wheel leads straight to the one place we don’t want our companies or careers to be: average.

It’s time to escape this cycle. It’s time to break the wheel.

In this fast-paced, inspiring talk, award-winning documentary host and former Google and startup brand-builder Jay Acunzo will hand attendees a sledgehammer. They’ll learn how to find clarity more quickly among the noise, cutting through past precedents and buzzy trends that only create sameness in their niche. Through science and story, Jay will share a framework to more successfully think for yourself when surrounded by conventional thinking. This isn’t about being a rebel. It’s about driving real results for companies and careers alike. In the end, attendees will become the welcome exceptions to the status quo.

While everyone around them merely survives, they’ll know how to thrive. Remember: Finding “best practices” isn’t the goal. Finding the best approach for you is. Jay’s presentation will inspire and empower people to do exactly that.

In this talk, attendees will learn:

The psychological barriers to making good decisions at work.
The one behavior change that can help them overcome these barriers.
Why this change can make creativity feel more logical than lofty.
How to create a personal, team-wide, or company-wide “decision-making filter” to more quickly and confidently find the best approach in each new situation.

“Jay’s was the best session I’ve ever attended in my 25 years of conferences! (I grew up watching my parents do keynotes.) I had so much energy and aspiration walking out of there!”
