Mr. Stefan lectures on how innovation, disruptive technologies and behavioral change affects the worlds of business and social issues. “The world is changing. The Internet is the biggest game changer of all and it affects all markets. And when markets change, you change or you die. Change is also a part of life. Your employment is not forever neither is the way you interact with others or the things you hold to be true,” says Mr. Stefan.
