The latest +Layovers is up. From Google Flights to the biggest aircraft ever, +Alex Hunter and I give you the best aviation innovation news of the week.
 
Your weekly dose of aviation innovation:

Layovers 006 BCN
http://lyv.rs/1G5BEb9

Flight 006. Google Flights is out of beta. The Bombardier CS300 is out of the hangar. A mobile passport is out at Miami Airport. Ryanair’s mobile future is out. Airbus is out with its Airwolf helicopter. Middle seats are out. But the MH370 mystery stays in.

Loved this quote.
 
”Who in this room has a sales job? 30% of the room raises their hands.
Who is a CEO in this room? Everybody raises their hands …
Guys I’m so sorry, all of you are in sales, whether you like it or not. Because you sell your company to investors, you sell it to employees, you sell it to clients, you sell it throughout the organization.”

Introduction
I am an innovation scout and keynote speaker.

I'm working with firms worldwide on their innovation strategy. I also advise startups.

I focus on the impact of disruptive technologies on businesses and societies.
I believe new identities—new consumers—are emerging.

I study how innovation is born, how disruption happens. I connect the dots between macro and micro trends to capture trends foresight with a global perspective—understanding today's behaviors and trends for the mobile-enhanced world of tomorrow.


As a keynote speaker, I have given presentations on 4 continents.

I deliver private speeches at annual shareholders events, board meetings or product launches, with clients varying from Microsoft to Unify (formerly Siemens Enterprise), from Alcatel-Lucent to the European Union.

I perform in public at events including The Economist (New York), Bell Labs (Tokyo), LeWeb (Paris and London), TEDx (Athens), Ignite (Shanghai), IMMAP (Manila), New Context Conference (Tokyo), SMWF (Singapore, New York and London), e-nnovation (Poznan), SXSW (Austin), European Venture Summit (Kiev) and many more. 

I use the services of an agent to book my engagements. My agenda being intense, please reach out early. Message me for more information.



I keep scouting for clusters of innovation, from London to Dubai, from Rio de Janeiro to Tokyo, in order to better understand disruption. I look for startups that redefine innovation & advise a handful of those. 

With the results of my analysis, I guide corporate clients through the opportunities and challenges of transient disruption. I also produce and host The Digital Loop, a weekly video series about digital innovation.


I'm not a futurist, the dots cannot be connected forwards—as Steve Jobs famously said. I only seek escape velocity in today's narratives, making us all blind to disruption.

I have lived in Tokyo, Geneva, Manila, Limassol and London. I'm a Swiss, a Greek and a Finn.
