Think Dif Part Two!

Part 2 of my Disruptive Innovation Festival (DIF) series for the Ellen MacArthur Foundation airs this Friday at 9:30am PST. This one is LIVE, and gets into the ACTUAL biology of ultra-social organisms like ants and termites and what we can learn from them about making our businesses faster, smarter, and more valuable, followed by a live Q&A. This one will be crazy cool, don't miss it. Once again, it's free, just register
