The 21st-Century Business Designer

Mike is the CEO of Tomorrow, a global consultancy on designing companies for the 21st century. He advises leaders on how to thrive in the current era of disruptive technological change.

A true global nomad, Mike travels over 300 days a year worldwide, researching trends, collecting innovation case studies and presenting on the future of business.

Mike’s clients include many of the global Fortune 500, and as a sought-after keynote speaker, he regularly shares the stage with world leaders and business icons alike.

Mike previously founded Jupiter Research in Australia and has also held senior strategy roles at News Corporation in the Asia Pacific Region.

Mike’s best-selling book Futuretainment, published by Phaidon was the winner of the design award by the Art Director’s Club in New York. Mike's latest book is The Dictionary Of Dangerous Ideas. Each week he interviews provocative thinkers, innovators, and troublemakers on his weekly podcast, Between Worlds.

FUTURIST

Rather than focusing on the distant future, Mike takes an anthropological approach - scanning the near horizon for emerging technologies and disruptive shifts in human behavior and then translating these into pragmatic plans for digital transformation. A prolific writer and commentator, Mike’s views have appeared in a wide range of international publications including BusinessWeek, Forbes and the Wall Street Journal.

GLOBAL NOMAD

Constantly traveling the world for the best ideas, Mike spends more than 300 days a year on the road interviewing innovators, entrepreneurs and corporate revolutionaries to provide his clients and audiences with a fresh and compelling vision of tomorrow’s opportunities.

SPEAKER

Mike has delivered close to a thousand keynote speeches around the world to companies in almost every industry. His customized presentations leave audiences prepared and inspired to transform the way they do business. In 2014, Mike was invited to be a main stage keynote speaker at the Million Dollar Round Table with an audience of more than 8,000 people, one of the most prestigious events on the global speaking circuit.

 

 

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 inspiring 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.

 

Designing your business for the 21st century

Most companies are simply not designed to survive. They become successful on the basis of one big idea or breakthrough product,' says CEO Mike Walsh 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 megatrends 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.
