Yet managers everywhere are still employing management principles and practices as if we were back in the 20th century.

Our Purpose Story Shares is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization devoted to inspiring reading practice and improving literacy skills. Our library is full of Relevant Reads—books that are both compelling and approachable for struggling teen and young adult readers. The Story Shares digital writing tool enables writers, educators, and students to create and publish Relevant Reads. These books cover a range of age, interest, and reading levels, and are also enhanced with features to make reading more accessible and fun. By leveraging the combined powers of great books and interactive web design, our literacy hub brings together a community to engage and support readers who struggle. The Problem The millions of readers who complete elementary school reading below grade level are unable to read about the characters and plots written for their age group. The stories they can read are meant for a less mature audience. At best, they hide this by reading only in private. At worst (and most often) they simply give up reading altogether. Given the daily importance of reading in all aspects of life, lacking this crucial skill negatively impacts everything from academic performance to everyday communication. As many as 90 million teens and adults in America lack crucial literacy skills1 70% of middle and high school students require some form of reading remediation2 26% of 12th graders graduate reading below the basic level.3 The older they get, the harder it becomes to find content that is both relevant for their age and readable at their level. Thus, readers are not motivated or interested, and they often stop reading altogether. Our Solution We help generate and then distribute new stories aimed at older students who read below grade level, specifically ensuring that the content is interesting at their age, and readable at their level. To do so, we are building the Story Shares Hub to bring together authors, readers, and educators. For authors, the Hub provides a digital book builder to guide the creation of just-right content, and access to a large group of potential readers. For readers and educators, the Hub provides a library of newly created just-right content, distributed on a platform with built-in reading assists to make it even more approachable. https://www.storyshares.org https://www.facebook.com/StoryShareLiteracy/ https://twitter.com/storyshares

Opuscope is developing Minsight: an app for creative users to design their own reality. With a headeset-first approach, our vision is to open the door for the proliferation of Virtual, Mixed and Augmented reality creations. I studied cognitive psychology with two main themes: usability and pedagogy. I early chose the usability part because I have always been curious and enthusiastic about new technologies, so when I learnt that psychology could match with them I knew this job was made for me. Concretely, I work on interfaces, whatever they are: website, software, video game, robot, VR/MR devices and much more without limit as long as there is an interface. This implies making sure they are easy to use, and fits their objectives and their target users. To do so, I: - evaluate existing interfaces to find ergonomics problems and suggest solutions to resolve them - design new interfaces from scratch to the point they are ready to be developed - make sure recommendations are well implemented by following development http://minsight.co https://www.linkedin.com/in/alexiabuclet https://twitter.com/getminsight

I never expected to launch a worldwide organization. Never ever thought I'd have to know about braille, or retinas, or genetic mutations. And I had no idea I would be dealt a double dose of darkness.... It was a one-two punch to the gut: both of my boys were diagnosed as blind when they were each 4 months old. I had never even met a blind person, yet I quickly learned how to find the tools blind children need and got them in the hands of my boys, literally. With the right foundation and a multitude of resources, they have become accomplished athletes, high achieving students, talented musicians, and social butterflies. Oh, and international Braille competition finalists too. In May 2011, I connected with other families living with the same rare disease my boys have, and launched a mission to fund a cure. No advanced degree. Never created a website before. Had no idea about grants, or IRB's... the list goes on. I learned how to build a team, nearby and remote, of people that know how to do the things I don't. I spend nearly every minute of every day networking with people that can help either medically, financially, or otherwise. No connection is too small, as I have found some of the greatest resources in the oddest places. In just six years, I've led our Foundation to make progress we thought would take much longer and people are calling on us daily to be a part of a miracle that seemed impossible less than a decade ago. We've raised over one million dollars, made history in the US Congress with the first ever rare eye disease resolution submitted in Braille, and have skyrocketed our little rare disease to the top of mind of many industry leaders - and I am just getting started. If you can help my mission to give options and resources to CRB1 LCA/RP patients, or if you need a dynamic speaker for your event, email me at curingretinalblindness@gmail.com or smedtalk@gmail.com http://kristinsmedley.com https://twitter.com/KristinSmedley https://www.facebook.com/thrivingblind/

Bank Labs is a combination of seasoned executives with deep expertise in community banking, bank technology and alternative finance techniques. We have been founders/leaders in banks ranging from $200 Million in assets to $1.5 Billion in assets in addition to leading multi-billion-dollar technology companies. Our principals are local business leaders, board members, founders and technology and real estate investors. We experienced first-hand how traditional community banking has evolved; clients now access accounts, apply for loans and pay bills via the Internet. True mobility tools to make bankers jobs more productive have not kept pace. Bank Labs mission is to change that. We create cloud-based solutions that target noisy, spreadsheet-based processes. Bank Labs helps community bankers become more efficient so that they can get back to banking, improve productivity, and allow more time to build relationships. This includes providing technology-based marketplaces to help our community bank clients gain access to new markets and defend against internet startups going direct to your clients. We hope to have the opportunity to visit and share what we are doing for the best community banks in the country. https://www.banklabs.com https://twitter.com/TheBankLabs https://www.linkedin.com/company/bank-labs

Increasingly, new employees and junior members of any profession are encouraged—sometimes stridently—to “find a mentor!” Four decades of research reveals that the effects of mentorship can be profound and enduring; strong mentoring relationships have the capacity to transform individuals and entire organizations. Organizations that retain and promote top talent—both female and male—are more likely to thrive. But the mentoring landscape is unequal. Evidence consistently shows that women face more barriers in securing mentorships than men, and when they do find a mentor, they may reap a narrower range of both career and psychological benefits. Athena Rising is a book for men about how to mentor women deliberately and effectively. It is a straightforward, no-nonsense manual for helping men of all institutions, organizations, and businesses to become excellent mentors to women. Co-authors W. Brad Johnson, PhD, and David Smith, PhD, draw from extensive research and years of experience as experts in mentoring relationships and gender workplace issues. When a man mentors a woman, they explain, the relationship is often complicated by conventional gender roles and at times hostile external perceptions. Traditional notions of mentoring are often modeled on male-to-male relationships—the sort that begin on the golf course, involve a nearly exclusive focus on career achievement, and include more than a few slaps on the back over drinks after work. But women often report a desire for mentoring that integrates career and family aspects of life. Women want a mentor who not only “gets” this, but truly honors it. Men need to fully appreciate just how crucial their support of promising junior women can be in helping them to persist, promote, and thrive in their vocations and organizations. As women succeed, lean in, and assume leading roles in any organization or work context, that culture will become more egalitarian, effective, and prone to retaining top talent. http://www.davidgsmithphd.com/thebook https://www.amazon.com/Athena-Rising-Should-Mentor-Women/dp/1629561517

I have been challenging the status quo for as long as I can remember. From being labeled a devil’s advocate in high school to a contrarian in college, I refuse to go with the flow or accept things as they are. Delving into and exploring what others take for granted, I thrive when creating innovative, logical, and elegant solutions. I consider myself a visionary. Growing up in a family of entrepreneurs, it was only a matter of time before I started my own company. As a trained architect with over ten years of experience, I’ve worked internationally on projects in countries including Japan and France, as well as with Hillier, the award-winning firm in Princeton, New Jersey. I have also worked in the health care industry, housing, and urban design. As a teaching assistant at the University of Pennsylvania, I led seminars on planning urban infrastructure systems. While there, I noticed that available methods unnecessarily restricted users’ ability to gain knowledge to make better decisions—too much of the answer is already baked into the question, and there is little room for discovery. I envision a customizable planning solution that’s able to evaluate many infrastructure systems across geographic boundaries. At the same time, it must take spatial relationships into account, ultimately giving users across different disciplines the information and knowledge they need to make better decisions for themselves, their companies, and their clients. That is why I created Spatially, a tech startup that provides location-based services. As founder and CEO of Spatially, I oversee the company and ensure that it furthers my vision to be the leading geospatial analytics and solutions provider. I develop and implement overall growth strategies for the company, conduct research, and establish client relationships. https://www.spatially.com https://www.facebook.com/Spatially https://twitter.com/Think_Spatially

After founding Sub Pop, signing Nirvana, and putting Seattle on the map while orchestrating the worldwide Grunge phenomenon, Bruce Pavitt took a step back. He "retired" from the music industry to raise a family on Orcas, a remote island in the Northwest corner of Washington State. It’s a small community, so it wasn’t long before he met musician, producer and tech entrepreneur, Adam Farish. The two bonded over a shared love of music, and discussed what the future of the industry would look like. They agreed it would be participatory, interactive, and mobile. Fast forward 10 years, and iOS technology finally caught up to their shared vision. Soon Adam began to design a new audio format and platform that would allow any listener to remix music on their phone. Adam then showed his prototype to Bruce. Bruce, given his history in promoting regional culture, immediately saw it as a way to revolutionize the music industry. They officially incorporated as 8Stem in 2015, and set out to launch music 2.0. 8Stem is a revolutionary, interactive audio format that allows any listener to remix music like a professional DJ or sound engineer. Paired with the first multi-channel playback and remixing app, 8Stem signals a new era of music that is participatory, immediate and social. https://8stem.com https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/8stem/id1025280903?ls=1&mt=8 https://twitter.com/8stem

Helped influence the Government to procure national motorways instead of the town by-passes commissioned by the National Roads Authority in 1999. Helped expedite the M50 Motorway and save €400m. This included its realignment: a) near Sandyford Village – so that the village was not enclosed by motorway type roads; b) away from sensitive areas of Finglas, Ballymun and Santry. This enabled this section to open sooner - it was to open 10 years after the Tallaght to Sandyford section but instead was opened 5 years before it; c) at Redcow to remove the last set of lights during its latest upgrade. Played a key role in the Government decision for a Dublin Metro - assembled a Japanese consortium and in 2000 presented to the Cabinet Committee for PPPs a proposal. After the meeting the Cabinet pledged to proceed with a metro. In 2003 presented plans to the Government Oireachtas Joint Committee on Transport on how the cost of a metro could be reduced and also instigated the visit of a Spanish delegation to them. The Committee Report noted my 'undoubted knowledge and many skills that are appropriate for the building of a Metro' and that my 'extensive knowledge could be harnessed for the development of the Dublin Metro system'. https://www.linkedin.com/in/cormac-rabbitt-23b61b32/

Brian Smith was born in Australia, where he developed his love of surfing. A chartered accountant, he studied at the UCLA Graduate School of Management, and with $500 of start-up money, he founded UGG Imports to bring sheepskin footwear to America. After seventeen years, as sales reached $15 million, he sold the business to Deckers Outdoor Corporation. The UGG brand has since exceeded $1 billion of international sales times over. A passionate innovator and entrepreneur, Brian is one of the most sought after business leaders in the country today. As a media guest and inspiring speaker, he is committed to teaching his breakthrough business strategies to entrepreneurs and translating personal vision and spirituality into company culture. Brian Smith has recently written a book based upon his journey from conceiving the idea, all the way to selling the business as a national brand. The books theme is that you can't give birth to adults. Every business starts with conception, then birth...the long infancy, then toddling, youth and teenage phases. This understanding is powerful, as hundreds of people in his keynote speaking seminars tell that they were about to give up on their dream, but now they identify themselves in one of the early phases. This gripping story of ecstatic highs and crushing lows of UGG, and Brian show how you can dig deep to overcome every obstacle in your path. Called The Birth Of A Brand, the book is available on Amazon, and you can download the first chapter free from his website, www.BRIANSMITHSPEAKER.com. www.BRIANSMITHSPEAKER.com https://twitter.com/briansmithugg https://www.facebook.com/BrianSmithUGGFounder/

I'm in the early stages of starting a tech company that will offer a mobile platform to veterans and transitioning active duty military personnel to assist them in starting a life outside the military. I have more than 8 year’s combined experience as an Infantryman in the United States Marine Corps and international security industry. I've been conducting security operations in Iraq and Afghanistan for most of my adult life. I've held positions as a security manager in Afghanistan managing a guard force of 30-60 local Afghan nationals. Dealing with these local nationals has given me great knowledge on dealing with people in general. Its not easy to communicate complex orders and instructions to security personnel who don't speak your language, but through trial and error, I learned. This skill helps me interact with people that do speak my language so much more and has taught me how to be a better manager and leader. I've been responsible for various threat assessments throughout my career, from vehicles movements (convoys), personal security details, and physical security (buildings). These skills were learned on the job in high threat environments and it has taught me how to be alert and really think outside the box, because in those dangerous environments anything can happen but with a proper threat assessment you can minimize your risk. Specialties: proficient with foreign weapons, surveillance, counter surveillance, profiling, tracking in an urban environment, CQB, MOUT, mobile security procedures, Driving in high threat environments, client formations, movement under fire, breaking contact, living in austere environments, first aid, Security management, Intelligence gathering , and risk mitigation, anti-terrorism. https://victorapp.io https://www.linkedin.com/in/gregoryjumes/

Virtual Rehab leverages the advancements in Virtual Reality technology to reduce the number of repeated offenses and re-incarceration rates worldwide. Every person in life deserves a second chance. Inmates and Substance Abuse Addicts are no exception to this rule. In fact, they are the ones that are in most dire need for help, support, and development to become improved citizens upon their release from prisons and rehab centers. This can only be realized through correctional and rehabilitation programs that will prepare them to lead their future lives in a positive manner in order to avoid the possibility of repeated offenses and substance abuse addiction. At Virtual Rehab, we are developing a powerful tool (provisionally patented) which would rehabilitate rather than just punish. The scope of this tool includes Formal Education, Vocational Job Training, Psychological Rehabilitation, and Correctional Services Rehabilitation. Virtual Rehab’s services will extend to inmates, correctional officers, rehab centers, children-in-need, along with other verticals in the future. Virtual Rehab believes that putting a kid in the corner does not teach them how to be a better person but rather teaches them not to get caught. Therefore, we are in it for the social good and to help address the most vulnerable populations out there. http://www.virtualrehab.co https://twitter.com/ViRehab https://www.facebook.com/ViRehab

I love challenging what's possible and helping people achieve their highest potential. In a world where we are more connected than ever before, many are feeling more disconnected... from themselves, each other and the planet. Actively disengaged employees cost $450 billion to $550 billion in lost productivity per year in the US alone (Gallup, 2013), and depression is now the world's second leading cause of disability (GBD). So I embarked on a bold new project. My last project about bullying & suicide included my song Close To The Edge, which has reached more than 1.6m views on YouTube alone and been used in my speaking engagements along with projects across the globe to raise awareness of these challenges. But I knew there was more to be done. So I sold or donated 99% of the things I used to own in Australia and embarked on a global quest to empower people to achieve their highest potential and show first hand how in a distracted world, technology (when used purposefully), can actually improve our performance, mental health and depth of connection with each other. “This guy is a genius and total professional at what he does and the value he can add. He’s my secret weapon.” - David Pow Tabain, World Kettlebell Champion and Founder of The 30 Day Challenge. I tick things off my own bucket list and speak on stages as I travel the globe, and the latest music I recorded in LA about courage, curiosity, creativity and relationships, are used in my speaking engagements and can be performed live on a grand piano to leave a lasting and memorable impact on the audience. I believe that business should be done and life should be lived in a way that is not only good for you, but also good for others and the planet too. That’s why whenever I’m hired to speak around the world, part of the proceeds go to providing clean water for those in need. I love helping good people thrive, because when good people thrive, they do more good, and that’s what can truly change the world. https://thrivingcollective.com https://www.facebook.com/askcameronbrown https://twitter.com/askcameronbrown

Citizinvestor is a crowdfunding and civic engagement platform for local government projects. We empower citizens to invest in their community and create real change. Any government entity or their official partners can post projects to Citizinvestor.com. These are projects that have support from City Hall and citizens, but simply lack the necessary funds to be completed. Once a project is posted to Citizinvestor.com, citizens can donate tax-deductibly to the projects of their choice. Although citizens are asked to enter their credit card information right away, they will not be charged unless the project reaches 100% of its funding goal before the funding deadline. Once a project reaches 100% of its funding goal, the project is built! Citizinvestors can continue to monitor the project’s progress as it goes from funding to fruition. http://www.citizinvestor.com https://twitter.com/citizinvestor https://www.facebook.com/citizinvestor
