Zach Piester Speaker Biography


Powerful technological forces including Blockchain, AI and Advanced Analytics have and are reshaping business foundations creating massive gaps between corporate winners and losers.

For 15+ yrs Zach Piester has been at the forefront of emerging technology as an investor, entrepreneur, growth executive and innovation leader. He is a longtime advisor to senior executives in Fortune 500 companies, global fast-growth companies and tech disruptors on how to develop, design and scale new innovations. Advising senior policymakers in emerging markets across Asia is a regular occurrence.

Much of his work the past 5 years has been centered on Blockchain technology. He is not a blockchain cheerleader, but truly believes the technology sucks, except when it doesn’t. Its when it doesn’t suck that is extremely powerful and has already created new category leaders in Insurance, Financial Services, Supply Chain, Manufacturing and Smart Cities, States and Governments. Combine blockchain with AI, Advanced Analytics, Smart secure devices and we’re at completely new levels.

Zach's speaking style has been described as honest, genuine, engaging and fun. He deplores stages (why speak down to the audience).

Daniel Kahneman changed his life. Robert Cialdini put an exclamation point on it.

Zach should have been an organizational psychologist!
