After graduating with honors in business management economics and psychology, Jacob was excited to join the corporate world. At his first job he was told that he’d be traveling the country, meeting with executives and entrepreneurs, and doing all sorts of exciting work. A few months in, he was stuck doing data entry, cold calling, and PowerPoint presentations. One day the CEO came out of his nice corner office, handed Jacob a $10 bill and said “I’m late for a meeting, go grab me a cup of coffee, and get something for yourself s well.” That was the last corporate job he ever had.

Today Jacob Morgan is one of the world’s leading authorities on the future of work and employee experience. He is the best-selling author of three books: The Employee Experience Advantage (2017), The Future of Work (2014), and The Collaborative Organization (2012). Jacob speaks at over 40 conferences a year on topics ranging from AI and automation, management and leadership, the future of work, the 4th industrial revolution, employee experience, the internet of things, and other related themes. He also provides advisory and thought leadership services to various organizations around the world.

Jacob is also the founder of “The Future If,” a global community of business leaders, authors and futurists who explore what our future can look like IF certain technologies, ideas, approaches and trends actually happen. The community looks at everything from AI and automation to leadership and management practices to augmented reality and virtual reality, the 4th industrial revolution and everything in between.

Testimonials 11

  • “Jacob delivered a great keynote to our international executive team on how to think about and create an organization where people truly want to show up. His talk was funny, informative, and eye-opening. I highly recommend Jacob as a speaker!”

    Gerhard Zeiler

    President, Turner International

  • “Jacob kept our 1500 attendees engaged from beginning to end by demonstrating his enthusiasm, humor, and knowledge for how work is changing. Though, it is his style that so clearly helped him connect with our audience. Jacob isn’t so much a “lecturer” as a “friend in conversation” and it was a pleasure to spend time with him and added to our understanding of what is happening to “jobs/work”. I have no hesitation in saying, Jacob was a great choice to join The Forum 2016 hosted by the National Association Workforce Boards.”
