From the impact of AI on leadership to the mega-trends driving digital transformation, Mike Walsh's keynotes are a blend of provocative questions and global case studies.

The Algorithmic Leader

We live in an age of wonder – cars that drive themselves, platforms that anticipate our needs, and robots capable of everything from advanced manufacturing to complex surgery. Automation, algorithms and AI are transforming not only business, but every facet of daily life. While many fear that robots will take their jobs, the rise of machine intelligence begs a more important question: what is the true potential of human intelligence in the 21st century?

In this inspiring keynote, Mike Walsh, futurist and author of 'The Algorithmic Leader', ‘The Dictionary Of Dangerous Ideas’ and 'Futuretainment' will present a vivid portrait of a brave new world orchestrated by machines that think, and how tomorrow’s leaders can upgrade their capabilities to survive and thrive in an age of accelerating technology.

Audiences will walk away with an insight into the companies, technologies and global forces shaping the age of machine intelligence, as well as a set of tailored next actions on how to redesign their organizations, reimagine their roles and reinvent the way they make decisions.

Designing Your Business for the 21st Century

‘Most companies are simply not designed to survive. They become successful on the basis of one big idea or breakthrough product,’ says CEO MikeWalsh of Tomorrow, a global consultancy that helps design 21st century businesses. ‘The companies that will thrive in the near future are the ones not only embracing change but breaking the rules.’

Companies built to survive the future are no accident. They are a result of deliberate business design decisions smart leaders are making today. In his ongoing research on the world’s most innovative companies, Mike has organized these decisions into seven strategic priorities – that he will explore with audiences as a roadmap for their own reinvention.

In this keynote, Walsh will outline the mega-trends shaping the future of business and consumer behaviour, and the lessons learned from successful Fortune 500 companies on leveraging disruptive innovation, adopting a data-driven mindset and leading change through digital transformation.

From the impact of AI on leadership to the mega-trends driving digital transformation, Mike Walsh's keynotes are a blend of provocative questions and global case studies.

***Based on his discovery calls with you, and using the seven transformation drivers below as a guideline, Mike will personalize a presentation specifically for your audience.

After his experiences in the Web space, Mike spent five years in senior strategy roles at News Corporation where he helped shape the digital strategy for both their Australian newspaper and Asian TV divisions. Directly engaged by the CEO of Star TV to provide the company with a digital roadmap for their operations, he began his in-depth research into the fast growth markets of Asia.

Mike's session definitely resonated with our partners and helped challenge their assumptions about the future and to “think bigger”.

 

Mike's session definitely resonated with our partners and helped challenge their assumptions about the future and to “think bigger” -- specifically around “how to make culture the operating system” and to consider whether they are “probabilistic” or “deterministic” in their decision-making. Again, we sincerely thank Mike for sharing his insights and we appreciate him helping us to build transformative leaders.

Mike connected his content perfectly back to our vision.

 

Mike​'s​ presentation was great. He connected his content perfectly back to our vision for the week. His energy and enthusiasm for the content inspired the audience. We conducted a poll using our internal meeting app after the morning session and Mike's presentation was selected as the most impactful by a landslide.​

Sean Chadwick, Foot Locker​

Full of original insights and humour!

 

Amazing!​ ​I have found that some futurists and speakers simply regurgitate other people’s work without much original thought. Mike’s session was the contrary – ​full of original insights and humour – ​it gave me a number of genuinely new insights. He was also on-point during the subsequent panel discussion and complemented the other speakers.
