We live in an age of wonder – cars that drive themselves, platforms that anticipate our needs, and robots capable of everything from advanced manufacturing to complex surgery. Automation, algorithms and AI are transforming not only business, but every facet of daily life. ...

We live in an age of wonder – cars that drive themselves, platforms that anticipate our needs, and robots capable of everything from advanced manufacturing to complex surgery. Automation, algorithms and AI are transforming not only business, but every facet of daily life. While many fear that robots will take their jobs, the rise of machine intelligence begs a more important question: what is the true potential of human intelligence in the 21st century?

In this inspiring keynote, Mike Walsh, futurist and author of ‘The Dictionary Of Dangerous Ideas’ will present a vivid portrait of a brave new world orchestrated by machines that think, and how tomorrow’s leaders can upgrade their capabilities to survive and thrive in an age of accelerating technology.

Audiences will walk away with an insight into the companies, technologies and global forces shaping the age of machine intelligence, as well as a set of tailored next actions on how to redesign their organizations, reimagine their roles and reinvent the way they make decisions.

‘Most companies are simply not designed to survive. They become successful on the basis of one big idea or breakthrough product,’ says CEO MikeWalsh of Tomorrow, a global consultancy that helps design 21st century businesses. ‘The companies that will thrive in the near future are the ones not only embracing change but breaking the rules.’

Companies built to survive the future are no accident. They are a result of deliberate business design decisions smart leaders are making today. In his ongoing research on the world’s most innovative companies, Mike has organized these decisions into seven strategic priorities – that he will explore with audiences as a roadmap for their own reinvention.

In this keynote, Walsh will outline the mega-trends shaping the future of business and consumer behaviour, and the lessons learned from successful Fortune 500 companies on leveraging disruptive innovation, adopting a data-driven mindset and leading change through digital transformation.

Testimonials

“Extraordinary! Great ideas and eye-opening comments that make you think. Thanks!“

Juan Benavent

L&D Manager, Hewlett-Packard Company

“One of the best presentations I’ve ever seen. The impact on audience was perfect, the subject was very well presented and the media was used very well. Thanks for this great show!”

S. Akar

Risk Department Manager, Avea Telecommunication Services

“Set against a backdrop of unprecedented economic circumstances, this will certainly be a year of ‘Business Unusual.’ I wanted to let you know that your presentation was dynamic, highly relevant and stimulating, with fresh and unique insights. Despite the challenging time ahead, I have no doubt you have inspired us with new and unusual ideas to help accelerate to greater heights.”

CEO of Greys Advertising

 

“Mike Walsh was thought provoking, yet entertaining, hip & cool, yet commanding and he had an unbelievable stage presence.”

Cassidy Turley Commercial Real Estate Services

 

“Spot-on insight plus the best graphics I’ve seen in a presentation combined with impeccable timing and delivery. Loved the use of personal stories and experiences to not only underscore the points, but also connect with our audience. Afterward, heard lots of “best ever” comments. This one is going to be truly hard to top!”

Virtuoso

 

“Very provocative and powerful.  Best session of the conference.”

Julie Girard

Director, Client Services, Systems Source Inc

“Very engaging! Love the thought provoking language you use around 21st century company ‘operating system’ and the agility ‘mental software’ to look for in new hires. Made me reflect a lot on organizational cultures — those that operate out of threat/process/performance gap mode and those that operate on thrive/disruption/opportunity gap mode. And how liberating it is to get to be involved in ‘clean sheet of paper problem solving mode’ rather than starting with the quagmire of the legacy of history!”

Celia Kirwan

Managing Director, Kotter International

“Fascinating! You should also write books on presenting technology topics to non-technology people. It’s a skill very few technologists have.”

Nick Nero

Director of New Technology Strategy of Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment

Mike was amazing. We immediately received comments that his keynote was dead on. He was the perfect choice.
