Mike Walsh is a futurist and global strategist who helps business leaders and Fortune 500 companies thrive in this era of disruptive technological change. In his keynote, Mike addresses how to design a company for the 21st century while sharing examples of innovators who have already taken some interesting steps toward what the future of business might look like.
A global nomad, he travels more than 300 days a year interviewing innovators, entrepreneurs and corporate revolutionaries.
He is the author of the best-selling books "The Dictionary of Dangerous Ideas" and "FUTURETAINMENT" and winner of the design award by the Art Director’s Club in New York.
The CEO of Tomorrow, a global consultancy on designing business for the 21st century, Mike brings a strong research background to personalizing his keynotes for clients.
Rather than focusing on the distant future, Mike takes an anthropological approach - scanning the near horizon for disruptive technologies and consumer innovations on the verge of hitting critical mass, and then translating these into usable business strategies.
Mike previously ran Jupiter Research in Australia, and held senior strategy roles at News Corporation in both the Australian and Asian markets. In his role at Tomorrow, Mike advised the CEOs and senior management teams of a wide range of companies including BBC Worldwide, Fujifilm, Richemont, Bentley Motors, Star TV, Televisa, Globe Telecom, Philips and HSBC.
