OODAcon Online: 18 Nov 2020
November 18, 2020 @ 13:00 - 17:00 EST
Join us 18 November 2020 from 1:00pm till 4:30pm for OODAcon Online.
About the OODAcon Series
The OODAcon series is about understanding the future and developing the resiliency to thrive and survive in an age of exponential disruption.
Society, technology, and institutions are confronting unprecedented change. Rapid acceleration of innovation, disruptive technologies and infrastructures, and new modes of network-enabled conflict requires leaders to not only think outside the box, but to think without the box.
The OODAcon conference series brings together the hackers, thinkers, strategists, disruptors, leaders, technologists, and creators with one foot in the future to discuss the most pressing issues of the day and provide insight into the ways technology is evolving. OODAcons are not just about understanding the future, but developing the resiliency to thrive and survive in an age of disruption.

More about the 18 Nov 2020 OODACon
In our interview with Kevin Roberts, the iconic CEO and author of the book 64 Shots, he expanded on his views of how to envision and build the future. It has always been impossible to really see the future but planners have a need to try. In this age of accelerating technology, global pandemic and geopolitical shifts is it more complex than ever, making most projections of the future just gobbledygook. Who thinks these days that we know what the term “new normal” means? Who has any credibility writing about the “future of work” or “the future of cybersecurity”? Kevin’s approach: do not rely on the arrogant predictions of futurists. Instead, hack your way into the future, like hacking your way through a jungle. Be prepared to improvise and overcome. Relish and drive change where you can. Be flexible and agile and continue to create, but do so while learning to fail fast and fix fast.
