Starting his presentation at InfoComm 2014 with a story of the Indonesian Internet, Mike Walsh reminds the audience that when we talk about the future, it is not only the cutting-edge technology, but the human beings behind it, that counts. To understand the future, on top of technology, we will also need to understand anthropology.
Mike Walsh, futurist speaker, author of Futuretainment and CEO of innovation research agency Tomorrow, helps to prepare business leaders for what’s next.
Everything is changing. All the traditional industries we grew up with – media, communication, finance, professional services and retail – are all in the process of being turned upside down and re-invented. The force behind this revolution is not technology but rather consumer behaviour. After all, as interesting as it is when things change, the real magic happens when people do.
