Keynote Speaker - Bridging the Generational and Digital Divide

As a digital sociologist, I study what’s happening at the intersection of technology and evolution, and how it affects the ways in which we buy, sell, and work together. As humans, we enjoy a standard of living that’s unprecedented in human history, but at the same time, we’re experiencing record levels of stress, anxiety, and uncertainty.

At the center of the mayhem stands the smartphone, the unaccountable tyrant that has emerged in the blink of an evolutionary eye to rule our lives and emotions. Whether we’re digital natives, digital converts or analog holdouts, we’re all struggling to reconcile this relentless technology and the resulting demands on our time, energy and attention.

Let’s tackle this together.

Compete and Win in the New Global Hyper-Economy, as a Team.

We've got a ship to find, somewhere in the dark skies over the North Arabian Sea.
