RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

The Digital Imperative

For organisations seeking to drive digital transformation, Dan will light a fire under the project. With rich data and memorable anecdotes he will help engage everyone in the room in the cause and give highly practical advice on how to build a culture that can succeed on the journey.

Learning How to Fail

For companies that are seeking a more agile, innovative organisation, learning how to fail (quickly, cheaply and in a way that drives learning) is critical. With lessons from Google and startup land, Dan will make the case for a culture change and give you the tools to make it happen.

Disruption in Financial Services

Financial services are going through a period of dramatic change like never before, with the UK at the vanguard. Drawing on his experience with a number of leading UK fintechs, Dan will explore the drivers of change, the characteristics of winners, and the imperative for everyone in financial services that wants to survive.

Second Order Impacts of Technology

Ideally suited to a fireside chat format, Dan will answer questions on what has driven the massive technology-led disruption of the past decades and how we should have seen it coming. Then he will look ahead at future disruption (AI, autonomous vehicles, etc.) and explore what primary shifts will be and the important second order impacts.

Lockdown / Video Talks

Dan has invested in a full set up for reliable high quality delivery of virtual speeches and panels.  A dedicated iMac, dual, high-speed internet, and specific camera, mic and lighting will ensure remote events are as professional as those on your own premises. Dan can also record and edit offline for the audience to view when it suits them, perhaps followed by an interactive panel or Q&A.
