I am available for bookings as a keynote speaker, panel session member or MC for corporate and media events.
My talks focus on the macro and micro trends, trajectories, and grand challenges set to change consumers, businesses, economies and nations in the near and distant future.
Most of my talks are fully customised to my client’s needs, however you can view a small selection of my most popular past talks below and here.
With Flux Trends:
The New Rules of Engagement – How to Make Real Connections in Times of Fake News, Robot Trolls And Jaded Consumers
This talk is designed to help leaders, marketers, advertisers, PR, communications, media and sales professionals understand the future of connection with human (and not so human customers). If your business involves developing lasting relationships with individuals – or persuading anyone to purchase a product or buy into an idea – you need to understand the trends unpacked in this talk, which covers everything from brandjacking and morality marketing to social cooling and ad-fakery.
What does it mean to be human in the midst of the rise of the machines? This presentation looks at the effect of big data, bio-rights, robot rights, cyborgs, AI, The Singularity and “Transhumanism” on us humans, and on the businesses that employ and sell to us. You will discover why the human touch is still the best way to “only connect” and that technological tools still have to meet core needs and solve real problems.
Postalgia sets in when we lose faith in the future and start to believe the here and now is as good as it gets. Postalgia is dangerous in that it is essentially nihilist. If you or your team, employees or customers believe that tomorrow will be no better – or worse – than today, there is no point in planning for the future, and no point in planning or living for anything other than short-term amusement. In other words, postalgia sets in when we lose our purpose and no longer see anything worth progressing towards. This talk is designed to help you overcome the inertia of postalgia in your organisation and your own life as a leader and look to the future with purpose.
