Thought Leader on the Strategic Value and Impact of Information Technology
All over the world, in every sector of the economy, from enterprise to government, old models of success are breaking down. The old top-down approaches are giving way to a new bottom-up approach: newspapers, media, crisis relief, energy, science, education, government, and health care are all being transformed around the web and a new generation of interconnected individuals who want to shape the world they live in. This isn’t just a tweak to the old model: it’s a wholesale reboot.
Don Tapscott is the leading authority on this shift. He’s the co-author of the international best-seller Wikinomics and its even more ambitious successor, Macrowikinomics, as well as the generation-defining Grown Up Digital. He’s an entrepreneur, an internationally sought consultant, the chairman of the innovation think tank Moxie Insight and an adjunct professor of Management at the University of Toronto’s Joseph L. Rotman School of Management. On top of that, he’s currently heading up four multi-million dollar research programs.
Don’s insights range from big-picture understandings of technology, business, and society to practical applications of new developments in IT. If you want to know how to convert the latest technology into real profits, Don’s your man. If you’re ready to re-imagine your business in the context of the new connected marketplace, he’s right there with you. And if you want to understand the principles that any company or institution needs to adopt to make it in this brave new world, there’s really no one better.
Don delivers these insights in an enthralling, brilliant, and inspiring style that often has audiences saying he’s the most effective speaker they have ever had. We’re glad such a timely message has such a charismatic spokesperson. Don’s ready to share his wisdom with you whenever you’re ready — to enter the world of tomorrow.
