The Disruptor Connection gathers big-thinking disruptors for authentic conversations about cutting-edge topics. Led by Lead Disruptor Shawn Nason, these highly interactive, 50-minute exchanges are fueled by participation from the gathered community as they connect people, ideas, and action through bold, unfiltered dialogue and a complete lack of fear for blowing up the status quo.

EPISODE 12

THE SCIENCE OF SAVING LIVES

Featuring Paula Schneider

Cancer. We know the term. We know the cost. What we don’t know is the cure. Perhaps never has there been such a pressing need to be disruptive on the way to a solution. As we mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, Shawn Nason (Lead Disruptor @ Disruptor League) is linking up with special guest and friend of The Combustion Chronicles podcast Paula Schneider (CEO of breast cancer charity Susan G. Komen) who has managed to cultivate a collaborative organization that seamlessly melds business and science. On this episode, the duo will discuss adapting to change in the face of uncertainty, keeping their mission relevant in an ever-changing world, and staying disruptive when so many lives are at stake.

EPISODE 10

THE CREATIVE DESTRUCTION
OF HEALTHCARE

Featuring Dr. Zayna Khayat

Robotic surgery. Virtual reality therapy. Precision medicine. 3-D printed implants. Despite all the gee-whiz technology, our healthcare system is functionally obsolete. It’s past time we dismantle the status quo to make way for a future that values patients over profits and outcomes over activity. But first, says Dr. Zayna Khayat, we must let go of longstanding institutions, systems, ways of thinking, language, and ways of working. Join us for another Disruptor Connection conversation as Dr. Khayat (Future Strategy @ SE Health) links up with Shawn Nason (Lead Disruptor @ Disruptor League) to explore the future of healthcare and what’s truly possible when we let go of what was and embrace what can be.
