Aging2.0 webinar with Goliath's Revenge author Scott Snyder - 17 Feb @2pm GMT (9am EST)

Wed, Feb 17, 2021, 2:00 PM (GMT)


Goliath's Revenge is the practical guide for how executives and aspiring leaders of established companies can run the Silicon Valley playbook for themselves and capitalize on digital disruption. Technologies like artificial intelligence, robotics, internet of things, blockchain, and immersive experiences are changing the basis of competition in every industry, including "age-tech", "geron-tech", and "health-tech". Goliath’s Revenge delivers an insider’s view of how industry leaders like NASA, Hitachi, Mastercard, General Electric, Proctor & Gamble, Penn Medicine, and Cisco are putting these disruptions to work to both defend their core businesses and grow into adjacent markets.

“Digitalization is causing all companies to rethink the value they deliver to customers and the skills they develop in their employees. Goliath’s Revenge provides actionable best practices and detailed case examples for both.”

Toshiaki Higashihara, CEO, Hitachi

"Digital is changing how healthcare is delivered and empowering patients to be more involved in their care. Goliath's Revenge lays out how to shape this transformation.”

Madeline Bell, CEO Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
