Futuretainment, Mike’s first book, was published by Phaidon and was the winner of the design award by the Art Director’s Club in New York. Released in 2009, it predicted how the smartphone would reshape the media and marketing industry, and the imminent rise of social media, digital influencers, and streaming entertainment. In The Dictionary of Dangerous Ideas, Mike anticipated breakthroughs in microsatellite networks, cryptocurrencies, remote work, digital protest movements, self-driving cars, drones, and digital biology.

A dynamic and engaging keynote speaker, Mike has given over 1,000 talks over the last decade, from strategic briefings for the boards of companies like Verizon and Raytheon to an employee summit for a healthcare corporation that filled a sports stadium with an audience of over 25,000 people.

New Rules for a New World

Whether it be serving customers through digital channels or leveraging AI, algorithms and automation to ensure business continuity – we are likely to experience in the next twelve months, a decade’s worth of change. Not every business will make it, but those that do will never be the same again. And for leaders, now more than ever, is a time to upgrade their capabilities, embrace new technologies, and reimagine what they do.

Mike Walsh’s inspiring new keynote presentation will offer audiences an insight into the organizations and leaders that are successfully navigating this period of change, and how to create a playbook for their own transformation. Becoming future-proof is more than just about getting through the current crisis – it is about being ready for the new world that awaits us on the other side.

Audience takeaways:

  • Why there is no such thing as digital disruption, just digital delivery
  • Why there is no remote work, just work
  • Why AI is not there to destroy your jobs, but it will change them
