Netflix Founder and startup CEO Marc Randolph shares the unlikely story of how a handful of dreamers with no money and a bad idea, created the company that eventually brought down Blockbuster. Packed with dozens of stories that trace the dramatic ups and downs of those first exciting years, Marc weaves an inspiring story that shows the value of innovation, persistence and optimism. Along the way he shares some of the many values that he believe made Netflix successful, including a focus on analytics and testing, its novel corporate culture, and it’s almost fanatical obsession with focus. Equal parts inspiration, start up story, and practical tips, it’s a message that resonates well with anyone who appreciates a good “overcoming adversity” story.
Plus Moderated Q&A related to helping businesses redefine the values that determine business success. These values are well-being, happiness, empathy and civic consciousness.

Session: Positive Leadership: Strategies for Success
Drawing on research from positive psychology and organizational behavior, psychologist Dr. Tal Ben-Shahar explores what we, as leaders, can do to nurture the inherent potential in ourselves as well as in those with whom we work. Drawing on rigorous research coupled with compelling stories, Ben-Shahar discusses how we can find more happiness as well as success.
In her talk, Acting on Purpose, drawing on data and real world anecdotes, Alexandra Dimiziani (former Global Marketing Director of AirBnB, Co-Founder of TwentyFirstCenturyBrand), will share the business case for brand purpose, where it often goes wrong, and what it looks like when it’s done right.
Session: Acting on Purpose
Brand purpose. As expectations have evolved, now, more than ever, employees want to be a part of it, consumers are willing to pay a premium for it, and investors understand the commercial value of it. But if it’s nothing more than veneer, purpose can backfire, creating profound and long-lasting damage to the brand. To do it well, and reap the rewards, organisations have got to truly embed it into their business and culture.
