Generational Trends – Digital Natives 

Including anyone born after around 1980, “Digital Natives” have a very different way of looking at the world and this is becoming increasingly evident as they become the majority in the workforce. For “Digital Immigrants” this new world view can be a bit unsettling and requires some major unlearning. This customized keynote will help your organization create a culture that can identify and embrace these generational changes to the workforce and workplace, and can attract and retain top talent.Topics may include: the “Access>Ownership” mentality and “Collaborative Consumption”, Workforce Trends, Workplace Trends, and the Future of Education.

This compelling customized keynote presentation addresses the exponential advancement of technology and its impact and future trends in your industry. In addition to identify these trends, the audience will leave with powerful actions they can take and tools they can use to better equip themselves in a rapidly changing world. Topics may include: Healthcare, Consumer Trends, 3D Printing, Automation, Education, the Workplace of Tomorrow, Global Issues, and the Age of Abundance.

Investment Futurist

With growing uncertainties in world markets, one of the most frequent questions futurists get asked is “Where should I invest?” This keynote identifies key emerging and converging technologies and trends affecting investment.Topics may include: Cryptocurrency, Crowdfunding, Automation, and Global Trends.

The Age of Entrepreneurship

There has never been a better time to be an entrepreneur - or as few other options in a world of increasing automation. Find out how the world is shifting from employment to entrepreneurship and the opportunities and resources now available.Topics may include: Automation, Coworking and Makerspaces, 3D Printing, and Crowdfunding.

Jack Uldrich Acclaimed global futurist, keynote speaker & best-selling author

Simon is the brightest young futurist I know. I rely heavily on his outstanding ability to identify significant emerging technologies and trends, and have come to depend upon his keen understanding of how these trends will affect business in the future. As my reverse-mentor, his contributions and insights have proven invaluable."

Executive Account Manager at AVID Medical CPT / Medical Action Industries

I would recommend Simon as a consultant to any business seeking a competitive advantage, and/or as a captivating key-note speaker for any group interested in a glimpse of all things cutting-edge.

Digital Learning Evangelist at LearnSomething, a Xerox Company

I saw Simon's keynote to the TechExpo 2013. He is an awesome speaker and provides a fascinating look to the future while providing compelling evidence in the process. Without any reservations, I would recommend him as a keynote speaker.
