    COVID-19 is not only changing our way of life, it will hasten the arrival of a radical new future of work. While for many of us working from home has been a new and unexpected challenge - that is just the start of a much bigger transformation set to reshape the nature of business itself. In order to survive, every organization will have to virtualize.

    Whether it be serving customers through digital channels or leveraging AI, algorithms and automation to ensure business continuity - we are likely to experience in the next twelve months, a decade's worth of change. Not every business will make it, but those that do will never be the same again. And for leaders, now more than ever, is a time to upgrade their capabilities, embrace new technologies, and reimagine what they do.

    Mike Walsh's inspiring new keynote presentation will offer audiences an insight into the organizations and leaders that are successfully navigating this period of change, and how to create a playbook for their own transformation. Becoming future-proof is more than just about getting through the current crisis - it is about being ready for the new world that awaits us on the other side.

    In this keynote, attendees will learn:
    • Why there is no such thing as digital disruption, just digital delivery.
    • Why there is no remote work, just work.
    • Why AI is not here to destroy our jobs, but it will change them.

  • The Algorithmic Leader
    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 dynamic keynote, Mike Walsh, futurist and author 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.

    In this keynote, attendees will learn:
    • Why competing in an age of AI requires a radically new approach to delivering data-driven experiences and personalized services.
    • What it takes to accelerate your journey to becoming an AI-powered organization, and how to lead a successful process of digital transformation.
    • How to unlock the new skills, capabilities and mindsets that your leaders will need to survive and thrive in the future.

Mike's session definitely resonated with our partners and helped challenge their assumptions about the future and to “think bigger” -- specifically around “how to make culture the operating system” and to consider whether they are “probabilistic” or “deterministic” in their decision-making. Again, we sincerely thank Mike for sharing his insights and we appreciate him helping us to build transformative leaders.

Amazing!​ ​I have found that some futurists and speakers simply regurgitate other people’s work without much original thought. Mike’s session was the contrary – ​full of original insights and humour – ​it gave me a number of genuinely new insights. He was also on-point during the subsequent panel discussion and complemented the other speakers.

If the future is already here then it’s certain that Mike manages somehow to insert himself into one of those little pockets of the future, have a look around, and then come back and let the rest of us know what our world will soon be like! It’s been a pleasure debating the future of media with a real visionary.

Your talk was so well received! Many people (including myself and my team) thought you were the best speaker of the whole conference. You can be absolutely certain that if we ever need an insightful, clever, entertaining and informative discussion on the future of television we will give you another call.

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

Mike was a pleasure to work with. His presentation was perfectly pitched reflecting his research prior to the event to tailor his presentation to our audience and he also took the time to meet with some of them prior to the presentation. We would highly recommend Mike to anyone interested and would love to work with him again.

I would highly recommend Mike Walsh to any company who wants to get a clearer understanding of not what might be, but what is very likely to be.

Mike is highly inquisitive and original, not only in his thinking but also in his presentation, taking complex issues and turning them into simple and digestible themes. Mike is very valuable at helping challenge whatever your conventional wisdom is, and in setting out a clear set of views on how things might shape in months and years to come. I recommend him highly.
