The extraordinary ordinary
Dee Cafari sailed her way into the record books on 18 May 2006 as the first woman to have sailed single-handed and non-stop around the world against the prevailing winds and currents. This is an impressive achievement for someone who worked as a primary school teacher just a few years ago. How to make your dreams come true and achieve business goals at the same time even if they seem as remote as the Cook Islands? Find out the answer to this question by watching the video from Dee’s lecture that took place during the third edition of e-nnovation.But Dee is not the only great guest who spoke at our conference. How to survive being kidnapped when statistically you don’t stand a chance? How to become a professional ultra-marathon runner having lost an arm and a leg in an accident? You need determination, motivation and a few other things, says Chris Moon, the following speaker of the last year’s e-nnovation conference.
Chris is a former soldier who escaped being kidnapped by deadly guerrilla forces in Cambodia and survived a mine explosion. Many people would simply break down but for Chris it was the beginning of a new life and successful career. Find out how to turn your weaknesses into strengths by watching his lecture in this video.
How to make the future?
What Microsoft, Sony, Nokia, Polaroid and Kodak have in common? All these companies missed the so-called hard market trends. Some of them paid for it with life. Others lick their wounds and wonder how to regain the lost influences. Daniel Burrus – a famous futurist and author of the best-selling book titled "Flash Foresight", explains how not to be out of cycle and establish a company matching the demands, which the market will put on soon.
Daniel, who was the guest of the third edition of ennovation conference, can predict the future. He doesn’t use a crystal ball or astrological methods for this purpose. Thanks to the video summary of his lecture, you will find out how to effectively use statistical, demographical data and knowledge about technological novelties for this purpose.
We invite you to watch the recording and discover the future. It’s worth it, because according to Daniel, it is already visible that for most people, the future will be a major surprise.
Back to the Future
The famous 1985 movie by Robert Zemeckis is not only a cult comedy, but also a source of inspiration for many technology lovers. In addition to a compelling plot and amusing dialogues, the secret of the movie's great success were lots of devices from the future, which – according to specialists – were to be used in the 21st century.
Everyone who got enchanted by the futuristic DeLorean DMC-12 transformed into a time machine, the outfits adjusting to one's body or flying skateboards is kindly invited to watch the lecture by John Biggs – a TechCrunch editor.
In his speech entitled "The Future", John takes us for a trip in time. He presents the devices that he thinks will revolutionise everyday life. He mentions, inter alia, 3D print, transportation of the future, tele-operated robots and crowd-funding platforms. Apart from that, he points out the trends that – in his opinion – will no longer be used in the future.
The next portion of news is presented by the participants of the "Back to the Future – the Future is Today" panel. You will find the coverage of this discussion in the second video. Scientists, entrepreneurs and military men show, inter alia, smartphone applications able to detect mines, devices that link augmented reality with the so-called bio-feedback, traffic management solutions and many others. Though a flying skateboard was not among the presented devices, it is hard to deny the fact that the future is happening just now.
e-commerce in the era of mobile
One in seven persons on Earth has a Facebook account. This makes the Palo Alto-based company the key player of the social media industry on the Internet. Though it is hard to imagine the development of e-commerce without Facebook, the initial attempts have left much to wish for.
Can Facebook be used in e-commerce? Serhad Bolukcu, Market Manager CEE in Facebook Global Marketing Solutions, answers this question during the panel devoted to social media.
In the next video today we would like to introduce you to Don Dodge, Developer’s Advocate in Google and Peter Vesco from Deutsche Telekom. Both speakers hold the view that the year of mobile technologies already belongs to the past. In Don’s opinion a question whether someone is online or not seems inappropriate, as more and more people stay online all the time using mobile devices. Peter Vesco adds that to make this concept a reality, infrastructural problems should be dealt with. More interesting conclusions you will find watching the video from the panel on mobile technologies.
