Speaker Volker Hirsch is a futurist because everyone must be. We are shaping tomorrow’s world and we need to think ahead. His talks help organisations future-proof their businesses and guide them through change.

Volker has 15+ years of speaking experience, as well as an understanding of the latest in tech startups. As a venture capitalist he sees the innovations often years before they reach the awareness of the general public.

Not only is he knowledgeable about current technologies, but he has also been at the forefront of industries that were once described “niche” since 2000 (mobile phones). He helped launch the world’s first mobile music services (with Britney Spears, Duran Duran and Snoop Dogg amongst others) and published games on tiny mobile (feature) phones (including Call of Duty 3, X-Men 3 and the first titles for a small studio called Rovio – later of Angry Birds fame). Previously, Volker was the Chief Strategy Officer at Scoreloop, a mobile social gaming platform, which he helped grow to 450m users. When the company got acquired by BlackBerry, he served as its Global Head of Business Development – Games.

Volker is an M&A lawyer by original profession and still a member of the German bar in good standing. Today, his focus is on education, IoT, AI, big data and – still – games.
