JOSH has spoken at events from Davos to TED to the YPO/WPO GLC and at Universities from Stanford to MIT to high schools in the Bronx. He has presented to audiences around the world as well as to corporate groups from Microsoft or Mastercard to representatives of the CIA and NSA. His topics cover the gamut of technological innovation, from cyber-security breakdowns to our evolving technological future. Josh’s presentations are specifically designed to:
- Deliver walk-away strategies, insights, and methods listeners can apply to their businesses that day
- Reference real-life scenarios – in both success and failure – listeners can relate to, not just theory
- Be as up-to-date as possible: technology moves too fast to base strategy on 5-year-old anecdotes
- Change listener’s thinking, both about what the risks are, and where opportunity can be created
The following presentations are immediately available, or Josh can create a custom presentation expressly for your business:
Innovation in Practice
Buying a startup, hiring hot talent, or licensing a new technology doesn’t do you any good if you can’t incorporate it properly into your organization. Learn how world-changing new tech like E-Commerce, Mobile, and Big Data were used correctly… and badly. Real-world examples from the front lines of transformative technologies show you the pitfalls to avoid along with how they can be managed by organizations at any stage to produce significant new growth.
The Internet of Things + AI
Distributed sensor networks (i.e., the IoT + AI) are changing how people live, what they buy, and how they relate. But nobody is closely examining what happens when you mix them together. This talk explores the two main sociopolitical directions that are taking off in exploiting the impossibly powerful mix of real-time, where-you-are algorithmic intelligence – and what it means for your business.
Human Capital…. Isn’t
We’re all familiar with the hiring conundrum – top talent is impossible to find or keep and bad apples are impossible to remove. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Come learn what the rise of the gig economy and changing expectations from truly innovative employees can mean for your organization, from exploiting synchronies in cross-compatible currencies to aligning meaning and motivation.
People vs Robots – How Both Will Win?
The question is… how? From the gig economy to fully automated luxury capitalism, society is only just starting to respond to the tidal wave of disruption these technologies represent. Dig into the impact Robots, AI, and Big Data will have on your job and the work of your employees, and learn how to get ahead of the risk – and your competition – in maximizing the under-considered opportunities the shift to hyper-human skilling represents.
Facebook vs Goebbles: How Does Tech Control Us?
We know we’re more predictable than we suspect, but what does the scale and scope of data about us – as employees and consumers – mean for the evolution of business? Learn about the responsibilities this is likely to entail, the risks of getting it wrong, and how to positively bring the impending era of hyper personalized cognitive modeling to bear on your existing (and future) markets.
