Best known for founding Travelocity and serving as founding Chairman of Kayak, Terry Jones has become a powerful voice in the world of entrepreneurship through his numerous speaking engagements and the publication of his book, “ON Innovation.” His career path has established him as a thought leader on innovation in our increasingly digital world. A graduate of Denison University in Granville, Ohio, Jones, began his career as a travel agent, spent 24 years at American Airlines in marketing and information technology, capping his career as Chief Information Officer of its SABRE division. While at SABRE he led a team of six working on a project that became Travelocity. Jones served as CEO of Travelocity for seven years, transforming it to a public company with three billion dollars in travel sales. He left Travelocity when the company was taken private and became part of the founding team at Kayak, a company that yet again revolutionized how travel was purchased. He served as Chairman of the company from its founding until it was sold to Priceline for $1.8 billion dollars in 2013. Today he is the Chairman of WayBlazer and managing principal of ON Inc, a consultancy he founded to help companies in their transition to the digital economy.

Disruption Off

Terry Jones

Leaders are worried.  Businesses are being disrupted at an ever-increasing pace and technological advances are converging to create unprecedented dislocation.  Identify what these are and how you can turn them to your advantage.  Terry reviews the top 10 technical forces of disruption and more importantly shows the new business models that result.

Utilizing technical forces of disruption, Terry shows our current business models that are created from disruption and how startups are shedding old concepts to create simple models that “own the edge”.  The Edge – where the customer is – where we HAVE to be. (i.e. AirBNB, Uber, Nest)

As Terry says, “My innovation is YOUR disruption.  It is only disruption because YOU didn’t do it!”  Drawing from his experiences with several startups and as the founder of Travelocity, founding Chairman of Kayak, and Chairman of Wayblazer, Jones helps audiences turn disruption into innovation.

This fast-paced presentation can help you avoid disruption and become the innovator!
