HUBS AND SPOKES WILL DEFINE THE FUTURE OF WORK.

BOOKS

Four of my 14 books have won awards. My latest creation dropped in April 2023. It’s called The Nine: The Tectonic Forces Reshaping the Workplace. It’s the fourth installment in my series on the future of work.

THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS A BORING SUBJECT. THERE ARE ONLY BORING SPEAKERS.

KEYNOTE SPEAKING

Both in person and virtually, I regularly speak to organizations of all types and sizes. Topics include the future of work, low-code/no-code, Big Data, platforms, analytics, communication, collaboration, and emerging technologies. Since 1997, I have given more than 400 talks, presentations, and workshops to more than 40,000 people on three continents and in eight countries. I’ve delighted hundreds of organizations, including Netflix, Zappos, Autodesk, Electronic Arts, Harvard Business School, eBay, and SAS.

TODAY THE COSTS OF INACTION TYPICALLY EXCEED THE COSTS OF ACTION.

 

SERVICES

For more than a quarter-century, I have worked with individuals and organizations in a wide variety of industries and capacities. At a high level, I help organizations collaborate, communicate, and use technology better.

All companies are tech companies. Some just haven’t realized it yet.

Blog

I write about AI, the future of work, low-code/no-code, collaboration, communication, platformstechnology, and other topics. I pepper my posts with humor and pop-culture references. Oh, and I freakin’ despise jargon. Since 2008, I’ve penned thousands of posts, more than 1,400 of which live on this site.

POD

Conversations About Collaboration is my timely and multi-disciplinary podcast about how we work together. I chat with interesting and smart cookies about collaboration and adjacent topics: the future of work, remote work, low-code/no-code, communication, productivity, technology, workplace culture, and business processes. At the risk of name-dropping, prior guests have included Kevin Roose of The New York Times and Brad Stone of Bloomberg Businessweek. It will be returning in 2024.
