Kate O'Neill Speaker Biography


Companies like Google, Etsy, Cisco, and more look to Kate O'Neill, the "Tech Humanist," for optimism about the role of technology in the world, along with a firm reality check. She helps humanity prepare for an increasingly tech-driven future by guiding business and civic leaders to be both successful and respectful with human-centric data and technology, and by helping people better understand the human impact of emerging technologies.

Kate is now founder and CEO of KO Insights, a strategic advisory firm committed to improving human experience at scale. Whether in convention centers to audiences of thousands or in an executive board room — or even at the United Nations — Kate advocates for the future of humanity in an increasingly tech-driven world. Her insights help corporate and cultural leaders re-think how to succeed long-term by taking a human-centric approach to digital transformation and readiness for the future.

Kate’s expertise in data-based business models, integrated experience strategy, and human-centric digital transformation comes from more than 20 years of experience and entrepreneurship leading innovations across technology, marketing, and operations in category-defining companies. She was one of the first 100 employees at Netflix, where she created the first content management role and helped implement innovative dynamic e-commerce practices that became industry standard; was founder & CEO of [meta]marketer, a first-of-its-kind analytics and digital strategy agency; led cutting-edge experience optimization work at Magazines.com; developed Toshiba America‘s first intranet; and has held leadership and advisory positions in a variety of digital content and technology start-ups.

Author of 4 books including her latest, Tech Humanist, Kate's insights and expertise have been featured in WIREDCMO.com, and USA Today, and she has appeared as an expert commentator on BBC, NPR, Marketplace, NBC, and a wide variety of other national and international news media.

Throughout her career, she has been named “Technology Entrepreneur of the Year,” to the Thinkers50 Radar 2020 class, a “Power Leader in Technology,” a “Woman of Influence,” and numerous other awards and recognitions. A vocal and visible advocate for women in technology, entrepreneurship, and leadership, she was featured by Google in the launch of their global campaign for women in entrepreneurship.

Tech Humanist: How to Make Technology Better for Business and Better for Humans

At a time when every business in every industry faces digital transformation or disruption due to emerging technologies, new business models, fickle platforms, and evolving customer expectations, how can you be sure you’re making the right decisions and investments to secure your company’s future?
What’s more, with everything changing so fast, what can you do to prevent ending up on the wrong side of data breaches and overreaches, ethics and regulatory missteps, and PR nightmares?
In this keynote, Kate O’Neill pulls it all together and puts it in context. She surveys the ups and downs of the emerging technology and cultural trends landscape to demonstrate how the decisions companies make have far-reaching impact both to their bottom line — and to the future of human experience as a whole.

posits that our human experiences create a targeted feedback loop, defining our opportunities, our relationships, our knowledge, and, ultimately, our selves

Humanity At Scale: Data, Emerging Tech, And The Future Of Meaningful Human Experience

IDEAL FOR: technology events wanting to emphasize diversity and inclusion; diversity and inclusion events wanting to emphasize technology

A Tech Humanist Look At The Future Of Work
From AI-enabled recruitment systems to virtual presence robots, even the workplace of the present can seem a little strange. But what do emerging and exponential technologies mean for the future of human jobs? It no longer sounds alarmist to say that at least some parts of our jobs are probably going to be replaced by automation or by cognitive computing. Depending on which forecast you consult, as many as half of all job categories risk displacement, if not complete replacement, by machines in the years to come. There will certainly be impacts on the economy, on production, on efficiencies of scale, and on innovation. But beyond the economic impacts, how will this shift our human understanding of meaningful work, of accomplishment, of achievement? And how can companies prepare for workplaces that increasingly blend human and machine contributions? This thought-provoking and ultimately inspiring talk from Kate O'Neill, author of Tech Humanist, offers clarity, encouragement, and a thoughtful approach for business leaders to adapt to the big changes ahead while grounding the discussion in the timeless fundamentals of humanity.
