No matter where you live in the world the majority of people agree that the pace of change today is faster than it was a decade ago, and that in another decade it’ll be faster still. All of which is in no small part thanks to the fact that today we have not a handful, but hundreds of powerful, and increasingly democratised, emerging technologies materialising that when combined together, by a resurgent global culture of innovation and entrepreneurship, are spurring cultural, industrial and societal disruption on a scale, and pace, the world has never seen before.

Through my articles and talks around the world I help demystify the hundreds of emerging technologies that are helping visionaries and entrepreneurs build the future and disrupt the status quo, and I provide audiences with the tools and critical thinking that help them envision and navigate tomorrow’s threats and opportunities.

“Our event ran with the tagline “Challenge your strategy” and Matthew more than delivered on this promise. His keynote speech covered an incredible array of emerging technology at breakneck speed, in a unique ‘radar’ format. The examples he covered brought home both the opportunity and disruptive threats for businesses, and everyone in the audience is sure to take the job title ‘futurist’ more seriously after today.”

“We invited Matthew to be the keynote at our Enterprise of the Future Forum in South Africa and it was without a doubt one of the best decisions we’ve made as a business. Matthew’s presentation, content and networking added tremendous value to the forum as a whole. What set Matthew apart from the run of the mill ‘keynote’ speaker was his passion, he opened the forum and set the tone for what resulted in a highly productive, collaborative and energized 3 days. His depth of understanding and knowledge of multiple industries made his input valuable to the majority of the audience and facilitated a number of strategic conversations. In summary, Matthew has been invited to participate at all of our future forums and we would highly recommend him as a futurist and speaker.”

“Matthew was selected as the Keynote for the Battle of the Quants – Frankfurt. Matthew came highly recommended and he produced a riveting, informative and convincing speech which pointed out that the future is happening all around us. Matthew does not slow down as he methodically explores a variety of business models and identifies how they are being or about to be disrupted. From Machine Learning submersibles zapping bacteria on Salmon to autonomous flying cars, Mathew lays out the technologies that are going to affect society in a very understandable and easy to follow and entertaining style. I highly recommend Matthew for any keynote address.”

“I met Matthew at ChangeNow2017 where he was invited as a keynote speaker and Master of Ceremony for his great knowledge and foresight concerning the future of technologies. He sure is one the innovation industry’s most influential minds. His speeches on the topics of ‘Building the Sustainable City’ highly inspired the audience, who gained a fresh perspective on the major trends that are transforming industries and our lives. He used humour and bold statements backed up with solid market data to stir the audience to reconsider some of the industry’s conventions. In sum, it is my pleasure to give Matthew my recommendation as a keynote speaker on any topic concerning disruptive innovations, technology or future trends. He will deliver valuable information in an inspiring and impacting way.”

“We engaged Matthew to lead a two week think tank centred around the future of intelligent machines. The discussion he led with world experts in artificial intelligence, automation, and robotics far exceeded our expectations. He brought to the table an incredible breadth of knowledge far beyond simply AI to open the conversations to implications in labor, education, transportation, and user experiences. At the conclusion, Matthew provided insightful and actionable conclusions that we were able to take back as guidance for our senior executives and business unit leads. We look forward to further engagements with Matthew as we explore other global trends.”

“Matthew joined us as an international keynote in October 2017 at the Nordic Digital Business Summit, to explore “The Future of Transport for Industry – Death of the Combustion Engine”. His presentation was engaging and entertaining, opening up the very essence of the changing landscape of global technology developments that are driving changes in transportation. Matthew’s presentation style is such that he draws in the audience to hang on his every word, injecting humour and “wow” moments whilst keeping the content at a level that the audience can understand. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Matthew as a keynote speaker and hope to have the opportunity to work with him again in the future.”

He did a fantastic job and showed the audience how the rapid pace of technological progress will affect how the industry manufactures, markets and sells its products in the future, and then discussed how new, autonomous innovation trends will impact the industry over the next ten to twenty years.”

“Once again thank you very much for inspiring our attendees at the London Battle. Your presentation was fascinating, and the audience thrilled with your analysis. I have never seen so many people approach a speaker following a talk.
