Take a look at Tom Peters’ Twitter feed and you’ll quickly see why his provocative ideas and refreshing candor resonate with so many people. It’s been that way since the early 80s when his ground-breaking tome—In Search of Excellence—ushered in a business revolution and was the best-selling business book for more than 20 years. Nearly 40 years and 17 beloved management books later, Peters is still challenging leaders of all stripes to “put your people first.” 

With technology driving overwhelming business and societal change, Peters’ mantra is still just as relevant today. His newest book—The Excellence Dividend: Meeting the Tech Tide with Work That Wows and Jobs That Last—couldn’t be more perfectly timed. With artificial intelligence encroaching on not only manufacturing but medicine, engineering, law and more—everyone is affected by the tech tsunami. Peters notes, “Unintended consequences always surpass intended consequences. We are just beginning to come to grips with the unintended consequences of our new inventions.” 

Peters reveals how organizations can thrive in the age of algorithms while elevating the heart and soul of every worthwhile endeavor—our humanity.

Carl Sewell, legendary car dealer and international best selling author of Customers for Life, for which Peters wrote the foreword, will join him in conversation.
