Reinventing an age-old sport. Having just completed the PGA Merchandise Show, hear the latest insight on how companies are attempting to disrupt an industry when host Dave Robertson is joined by Sal Syed, CEO of Arccos Golf. He explains how artificial intelligence is finding its way onto the golf course.

Then, Amy Webb, Founder and CEO of The Future Today Institute, discusses the systematic way to identify the future trends in an industry. Learn how to pursue and forecast ideas with long-term value and avoid the concepts that are merely trendy.


First up is Steve Lehto, author of "Preston Tucker and His Battle to Build the Car of Tomorrow."  With a dream to shake up the auto industry, hear the story of what went wrong and why the production of such an innovative car got killed.

In the second half of the show host Dave Robertson talks to Tom Cochran, Chief Digital Strategist at Acquia, who previously served as the Deputy Assistant Secretary at the U.S. Department of State and Director of Digital Technology at the White House.  They discuss how easy (or difficult) it is to innovate at the government level.


How do we bridge design thinking with the thinking of an entrepreneur? Host Dave Robertson's first guest is Shana Dressler, Executive Director of Google's 30 Weeks, who works with designers on conceiving ideas to efficient prototyping, and talks about what it could mean for not only the next phase in design but also the evolution of business.

Dave's second guest is Marcus Weldon, President of Bell Labs and Corporate Chief Technology Officer for Nokia, who discusses the future of technology. Is it a high R&D budget or a startup mentality that will bring us into the new era?


First up is Traci Morris, CEO of BGRS (Brookfield Global Relocation Services), a company that develops and implements comprehensive talent mobility solutions for corporate and government clients worldwide. Traci took her "old" company out to Silicon Valley to learn from Google.

In the second half of the show Dave is joined by Alan Boehme, Global CTO, Chief Innovation Officer, and Chief Enterprise Architect for Coca-Cola. Hear why one of the largest brands in the world is not only looking towards startups for the next breakthrough idea, but also helping them with the knowledge and experience only a large company can provide.
