Speaking

Everything is accelerating 

I believe technology has outsized effect on industry and society. Understanding the principles of technological change is rapidly becoming a fundamental management (and life) skill. I enjoy thinking and talking about these issues and have presented my thoughts in corporate and public environments.

These engagements help people think more clearly about the future.

Talks cover the nature of technology, principles of accelerating change, future-shocking thoughts and plausible scenarios for what's next.
