2017 has been all about disruption – here is my year in review

 In digital disruption, public spealking

2017 has been a huge year for me in terms of public speaking.

One constant though has been the need for change.

I’ve spoken to large audiences around disruption, and new technologies such as blockchain.

I’ve given advice to business leaders and 6th formers, CEOs and graduates.

I’ve been fortunate to travel to Iran, Hong Kong, Cairo and also speak extensively in London.

I’ve even given a masterclass to 500 hair stylists about how to take a great Instagram photo.

To summarise the themes from 2017, I’ve put together a 90-second compilation video below.

If you’re looking for a speaker to disrupt your thinking about digital, the new way or working, artificial intelligence, personal branding, employee advocacy or anything in between, please do get in touch.

I’m already being booked well into 2018 such is the demand for companies to detect, decode and defend the threat of digital disruption.
