My keynote presentations include:

With What the Future Now

But Wait… There’s More… This presentation unpacks the lessons all marketers and business leaders need to know about how to close the sale and make the deal using the secrets of the newsletter men who can (in some cases literally) sell ice to eskimos. We look at examples and case studies from the distant past, and from the imminent future to help you and your businesses discover what you are really doing, so you can keep on doing it for a whole lot of tomorrows.

Confirmation Bias – How the Trinet (that is Facebook, Amazon and Google) has changed our brains through advertising and algorithms. This presentation looks at the issues of confirmation bias in human societies and businesses organisations, and unpacks the importance of curation and surprise in our content-mad world.

Space Elevators and Other Magic – The secrets of maximum effect for minimum effort. How you can “game” the system and why it is perfectly OK to take (some) shortcuts using lessons from Eddie the Eagle, the Four Hour Work Week, and the world of science fiction.

The Long Game – The average lifespan of a Fortune 500 company today has dropped to just 10 years. What is going on? And how can you build a survivor business amidst all that carnage?

Chaos Theory – How to embrace change and become comfortable with chaos. This presentation will help you businesses to survive and thrive in a chaotic, uncertain world. It will help you spot the simple patterns hidden in plain site.

What the Future Now? – This presentation looks at the strangest technologies and societal shifts humanity is about to encounter.
