and PARC. He is one of the few executives who understands both strategy and operational execution, and how to transform disruptive innovation into disruptive opportunity.”– Don Strickland, former SVP,


Technology Disruption Grounded in Real-World Application
“The most valuable part of it was how Steep tied his presentation to a real-world application. The internet as we know is filled with hobbyist websites that rarely tie together buzz word technology to real applications and problems. To truly differentiate ‘disruptive’ technology from just another science project that’s gotten a lot of media attention is exactly what his presentation did.”– David Lemon, Senior Systems Engineer, Juniper Networks

Mike explains in clear, concise and compelling terms how predictive analytics will continue to fundamentally change the ways companies are able to create and monetize their products, platforms

Cutting Edge Concepts Transformed into New Business Models
