People Power! How Comms Can Unleash Strategic Kindness, Optimism and Curiosity

In his forthcoming book “The Human Side of Innovation: The Power of People in Love with People,” PepsiCo’s first ever Chief Design Officer Mauro Porcini argues that strategic kindness, optimism and curiosity are what’s needed most in today’s global, hyper-connected and hyper accelerated world. Not only do these traits drive quality and productivity for your communications teams — but also a better working environment and society for all. Many companies, and many leaders, haven’t realized this yet. The ones that have are strategically hiring for and developing these traits in their people – and that’s why they have a competitive edge. The inspiring ideas you’ll hear in this motivating keynote include:

  • Why strategic kindness, optimism and curiosity start with communicators like you
  • Why the “power of people in love with people” matters in the age of purpose—and how to take the lead at your organization
  • How to hire, grow and retain exceptional employees by identifying their “superpowers”
  • The different entrepreneurial, social and enabling gifts to look for in prospective hires
  • How mentors play a significant role in the development of extraordinary employees
