Speaker Tom Koulopoulos Keynote Topics
Gigatrends looks at the greatest technological shifts of the 21st century, from the Metaverse to the emergence of Digital Workers, Frictionless Commerce to Blockchain, the Global Healthcare Crisis to Generation Alpha, it sheds a bright light on the many unanticipated ways that technology will shape the future; making what are often confusing trends understandable and actionable. And all of this directly from a viewpoint directly the front lines of technology.
At a time when uncertainty seems to be looming large over every aspect of our lives Gigatrends sets a course for the future that is realistic and hopeful.
Healthcare is on the precipice of enormous transformation brought on by an aging global demographic and the exponential advance of technology. However, healthcare is also at another precipice—one that threatens to send it, and its promise, plummeting into an economic black hole.
Tom takes a hard, honest, and practical look at how we can bend the arc of healthcare towards a system that improves outcomes, drives out friction, and provides a patient-centered model that becomes a role model for every nation.
Fascinating, engaging, and incredibly timely, this keynote explores one of the most dramatic shifts in history: the transition from an industrial society to one that is based on a deep understanding of an entirely new form of knowledge capital, behavior—our behaviors as well as those of the intelligent machines that we are building. Tom will entertain and educate your audience on the future of AI and how it will profoundly transform every aspect of our lives.
While every new generation has faced its share of disruption in technology, economics, politics and society, no other generation in the history of mankind has had the ability to make sure that every human being (and every “thing” ) on the planet is connected to each other, fully educated, and economically engaged. What might this mean for the way in which we build our businesses, markets, and institutions for education in the future?
The Cloud is the hottest topic since the advent of the Internet. And nobody can speak to it with more insight, energy, and humor than Tom. It’s why HP, Microsoft, Gartner, Intel, Cisco and many others have asked Tom to keynote their organizations’ cloud events. Drawing on his book, Cloud Surfing, Tom paints a powerful picture of how The Cloud will change the way we live, work and play.
Come prepared for an enlightening and life-changing discussion about the importance of innovation and get ready to take a hard look at how issues of culture, generations, and leadership impact the way we innovate. Tom’s approach is insightful and cutting-edge, but be forewarned, at times unorthodox. It’s the reason Forbes.com called him a Business Visionary with an incisive view of world trade and why, in the words of his long time mentor Peter Drucker, “Tom makes you rethink not only your business but yourself.”
Few things create as much risk for today’s organizations as cyber threats. However, cyber risk isn’t just a tech problem. Yes, you need need hardened systems and talented people on the front lines, but the greatest cyber risks begin and end in the c-suite. In this hard-hitting, fast-paced keynote Tom looks at the critical role that leadership plays in creating a culture for a cyber-aware organization, and setting the course for how companies will deal with the inevitability of breaches and cyber attacks.
The single most significant shift in business is underway – Digital Business Ecosystems. Simply put, Digital Business Ecosystems are at the heart of successful high growth companies such as Uber, Airbnb, Tesla, Google, Amazon, Netflix, Alibaba, Samsung, Nest, and GE. In this leading edge keynote, Tom looks at how Digital Disruption, Transformation and Business Ecosystems will be critical to the success of every business in every industry over the decades to come.
