Just got to Davos. Ready to fill the leadership vacuum with big ideas. My focus will be on privilege and women. Only going to #womanels #methree. Also, my alligator-skin boots got snow on them, anyone have a blow drier or an FT I can use to dry them off?
Thread 1/n: Small ideas feel big when I'm in my Gulfstream, so here it goes: We have to innovate on innovation. The 7th industrial revolution disrupts AND displaces. Artificial intelligence and blockchain can only solve resurgent populism with #compassion.
2/n We elites are critical to making this debate glocalized. Thought leadership also involves thought stewardship. Communities form the core of our economies. Blue collar workers must be re-conceived as #newcollar workers. Code is key.
3/n Innovative blockchain technologies can revolutionize how we think about patriarchy. Consent Coin and other ledger-driven #cryptoconcepts can bring men back to the table. Can we liberate women while speeding up transactions?
4/n Fingers are numbing from the cold. Can we get gloves that work on smartphones? If so could they be made of mink? Could I get bespoke ones to match my plane's interior? Is there one-touch order? Can I pay with #ethereum?
5/n Weather does not respect class, status or wealth. We court environmental cataclysm by racing about in planes and helicopters. Carbon credits must be made #scalable. Global climate change affects all. 90% of beach houses will be impacted by rising sea levels in next 10 years!
6/n ALSO 79% of Suisse bonded freezones holding OUR art untaxed could be impacted by receding glaciers and avalanches.
7/n Art is changing. Today we have contemporary art museums, tomorrow we will have contemporary #content museums. Influencers are artists. CEOs are film directors. Venture capitalists are conductors. Telling our stories is a way to do #business.
8/n We can leverage content to create value, but what are our values? Implementing sustainable innovations is paramount. Only 10% of the world speaks fluent code. More underprivileged children need to be given machine learning. Automation can empower.
9/n Bentley stuck in snow. Driver has terrible English. Sent assistant for help but can only see pine trees. Disruptive infrastructure could solve these inefficiencies. China has solar roads, but we need drone transportation to ensure I don't miss my reservation at Glow.
10/n So many big issues to deal with this week. #Loneliness, #Flu vaccines, #Climate change, #Populism, #Conflict, #Refugees, #Technology, #Women. It's like a fondue of problems. If the best and brightest are all snowed in long enough, we might just change the world #Davos2018
11/n Gave Shakira a helicopter ride home. Drank great wine. My #Davos2018 narrative is still unfolding itself to me, but I know it will be a good one. #Optimistic people live 8.4 years longer than the small-minded, cynical media types always after us elites.
12/n #Optimistic people also earn more. If the developing world would lighten up, it would unlock terrific GDP potential. #bigidea #DavosDiary #DavosIdeas #DavosCoin
13/n I keep cornering women to talk about women’s issues, but they keep shutting me down. We need more #engagement. @DavosWoman exists, but she’s never even Tweeted. Men must speak for women until they find a voice. #methree
14/n The calculus of development is complex. What should the woman quotient be? How do we ensure young women get the maths education to figure it out? I will donate a dollar for every 100,000 miles I fly this year to education efforts. #stepup
15/n Can anyone recommend a good driver that actually speaks English? Had to let mine go. Also my assistant has been missing since sundown when I sent him to see if there were any #BitCoin mines up the glacier. Any crypto solutions for missing persons? #innovation #crypto
16/n Found two refugee women in the inclusion foyer. And now we’re off for cocktails (I bet they’ll order Aviations). #Davos is about being #humble. I still can’t name many African countries, but that doesn’t stop me from feeling guilty about the whole continent. #hope #empathy
17/n Awoke early to #meditate and work on #mindfulness but discovered someone filched the FT from in front of my door. We need to be more #kind. Now my new assistant has to read headlines from the app to me as I stretch #siri #davos2018
18/n Just out of the Ethereal Lounge, had a Perrier with Trudeau. We face #harddecisions How do we help those who will never come to #Davos? The unbundling of social services thru technodisruption has me wondering whether the future will even be #human. We must #iterate #evolve
19/n My #Davos narrative runneth over. I feel #blessed. It’s Mexico night+I happen to have my mink sombrero. I also got invited to the gondola ride up the Schatzalp with Bill Gates, Bono, & Malala. So hard to decide which to do while thinking about forgotten people. #DavosDiary
20/n One of us, one of us, one of us, one of us, one of us. #Davos2018 #inclusion #Elites #FellowPoloLover
21/n Honored to be doing a panel tomorrow: “LV in the DRC: Branding luxury goods in post-conflict societies.” 10am at the Startup Station. #Davos2018 #development #flauntrepreneurs
22/n It’s easier to focus on the forgotten peoples and conflicts of the world when you’re in a gondola. More leaders should spend time in the alps and #reflect. If we fund their trips with our taxes, we could create a more #humane world. #Syria
23/n Have a Salesforce-sized hangover. That Swarovski chilled champagne bong showed me a whole new level of #mindfulness. Did I miss anything today? Heard it was mostly speeches from provincial populist types? #Davos2018
24/n Panel well received. Conflict zones well represented, luxury brands less so. We need to rewrite the playbook for corporate #engagement. Branding is about #social. Stories are a #borderless currency, which in a fractured world is as good as #Bitcoin.
25/n Hitting the hot tub with Will.i.am+Jamie Dimon to talk opiates. Big data can disrupt addiction. Communities can’t be forgotten if we have their #data. Tracking addicts and marking their social media accounts can lead to #compassionate community based solutions
26/n Big news everyone. I am going to be Bank of America’s next chief sustainnovation officer. Ran into the BofA bros at cross-fit. Afterwards we had a quick brain shower on big data applications to scaling blockchain ledgers, and now I’m in. #sevenfigures #csweet #DavosDiaries
27/n A lot of people have been asking who I’m wearing this week. Today I went Calvin Klein see-through sweater beneath a shawl neck cardigan. On top it had to be Canada Goose to support my spa buddy Trudeau. #DavosDiaries #Davos2018 #DavosThreads
28/n Goodbye #Davos. Found Klaus Schwab hiding out in my plane. When I asked him to leave, he just kept reading my Tweets back to me. What a #kind and #humble guy. So we’re off together, two adventure capitalists searching for new places to thinkfluence. #Davos18
29/n Did we change the world this week? I’d like to think so, and Klaus and my assistant agree. To create a #sustainable 7th industrial revolution we need #leaders who can #scale #Davos to replace our #fractured world order. #Blockchain, #BigData and #Code all critical.
30/n Wherever there is #inclusivity, you will find us. Wherever there is #sustainability+good wine, we’ll be there. Whenever the rights of the rich to feel good about themselves are threatened, #Davos global shapers are there, fighting for #diversity, #innovation & the #DavosWay
