Speaker Topics

Digilogue: The Convergence of Digital and Analogue
How to win the digital minds and analogue hearts of tomorrow's customers. As some organisations careen recklessly into the digital future, others are being left behind. Innovative companies are, however, realising there is an important middle ground – the Digilogue. A place where digital and analogue converge.
Seamless: Weaving Digital & Analogue Worlds
Digital adaptation and human transformation. The world is filled with friction. Everywhere we go, we experience the frictive effects of poorly designed "seams". Innovative brands understand that the future of customer service, excellent customer experience, and the creation of raving fans lies in their ability to create seamless transitions between physical and digital channels. In this keynote, Anders explores how we can design frictionless customer experiences where customers can seamlessly navigate between digital and analogue touchpoints using emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality. This presentation will provide you with fascinating case studies and strategies from innovative brands that understand how intelligent technologies can amplify customer service, create compelling customer experiences, remove friction and transform our lives.
Waves of Change: Three Global Trends Disrupting your Existence
Having your finger on the pulse of the marketplace has never been more important. We are operating in a turbo-charged environment that waits for no one. Waves of Change is a fascinating 'Did you know?' session covering the three primary forces of change threatening every business. A perfect session to shake off organisational 'change apathy' and prepare your team for what's next. In this keynote, Anders discusses how you can spot the waves, sense the direction of the currents, and establish what it means for your business. This presentation will provide you with the foresight to best position yourself so you're not washed away and build an innovation strategy that disrupts your competitors.


We recently worked with Anders to help us explore what the future of rugby may look like. We found him to be a very structured thinker, a great facilitator, and committed to driving a good outcome. I’d certainly recommend Anders to any company looking to put itself into a position of future strength.
