Rave Reviews About Scott Klososky
Scott's presentations far exceeded our objectives--and our expectations were high! The audience absolutely loved his sessions, as evidenced by the more than 150 requests Scott has received for his "Developing Gen Y Members for Life: Technology Required" session with his two children. That session, in particular, was astounding and very eye opening for our customers. Austin and Kristin were very impressive on stage with him. I will send Scott his evaluation remarks and scores as soon as they are compiled which should be in a few weeks. I can't imagine anything Scott could have done to improve on his sessions! As word spreads about Scott, his endeavors and his talent, I'm sure he'll have many credit union groups seeking him out.

  • SocialTech is the hottest trend in technology at the moment. Leaders are trying to figure out how to harness this powerful new suite of tools.

The Changing Sales Model (Socially Facilitated Selling and Socially Directed Buying)

The art of sales has grown through a few generations, and now technology is providing the catalyst to drive a huge reorganizing in how we sell. In the 70′s and 80′s selling was all about the relationship (Zig Ziglar, Dale Carnegie), in the 90′s we grew into the solution orien ...

  • The art of sales has grown through a few generations, and now technology is providing the catalyst to drive a huge reorganizing in how we sell. In the 70′s and 80′s selling was all about the relationship (Zig Ziglar, Dale Carnegie), in the 90′s we grew into the solution oriented sale, find the pain, and provide the cure, or make them sick, and make them well. At the turn of the century, we got very good at creating rigid step by step sales processes that could drive a prospect “down the funnel.” Social technologies have now shattered our ability to drive sales in the ways we have in the past. For a sales organization to prosper going forward, they will have to understand how to move toward a Socially Directed Buying Model. They will also need to train sales people in the use of social technology tools. This single presentation could have the most important practical impact on your organization of the next few years.
  • Best Audience -This session is specifically targeted to sales people and the sales organization.
  • Position in the Event -This keynote can be presented in any position within a conference because it is informational and lively. It can be used to inspire the sales team, or simply arm them with a long list of new tools and techniques they can use to drive more revenue. This can be delivered anywhere from a one-hour keynote, to a one-day seminar.

Big Data and Business Intelligence- A Revolution of Insight

  • For more than 50 years, computers have been gathering and storing data. Now is the time to focus on putting it to work. By combining the concept of aggregating many forms of data and information into a very large data warehouse (Big Data) and using Business Intelligence (BI) to do the data mining, we can now discover new trends, anomalies, and analytics. This includes the ability to move up the chain from forensic data to real time, and most importantly, to predictive analysis. With the new software applications available, the ability to discover valuable insights is now available to small and medium-sized organizations. This powerful capability will soon create winners and losers in the market which means it is not an optional skill to learn! In this presentation Scott combines thought-leading concepts with the practical steps organizations must follow in order to exploit the new power of building up chain data and converting it to information, knowledge, and ultimately wise decisions.
  • Best Audience -This is a great message for either high level executives, or a technology oriented audience. If the attendees are sales and marketing oriented, this message can be focused on customers intelligence and is always really well received.
  • Position in the Event -This talk is best in the middle of an event when people are open to thought leading content that can be applied right away to produce big gains.

  • In this thought-leading and insightful keynote, which Cisco called the best presentation on Cloud Computing they have seen, Scott shares a clear framework for understanding what cloud computing really is, and the impact it can have on organizations. Scott uses his humor and custom examples to drive home points as he outlines concepts like the importance of virtualization, cloud management software and the power of verticalized clouds. Then he provides a prescription for leaders who want to understand how to migrate from their existing configurations to the cloud. What makes this keynote especially unique is that he goes on to paint an intriguing picture of where cloud computing will go in the future. Because his consulting work allows him to work closely with companies of varying sizes, and across many industries, he has fantastic firsthand knowledge about the current state of the cloud offerings, and the best ways to leverage its benefits.

The 2.0 Customer- A Radical Change in Buying Behavior

  • Every organization has a constituent that they depend on to serve, or to sell to and those constituents do not behave like they did even five years ago. This is because Web 2.0 has ushered in a collection of tools and concepts that are completely redefining how we find, sell, and build relationships with customers. And the Web, mobile devices, and social technologies have combined to allow them to find products and services at the touch of a button. With these technologies customers now have the power to shape the reputations of any brand or product with their online comments. This means organizations can no longer simply “sell” to customers. Instead, new connections must be made in ways that create value in their lives. Failure to do this means regardless how wonderful products or services are believed to be, brands will slowly lose out to competitors who build relationships faster and deeper. In this presentation Scott uses his ongoing experiences in consulting with a broad scope of clients who are winning in the market today by using Web 2.0 tools to deliver the formulas audiences can take home right away and deploy.
  • Best Audience -This presentation is best for any audience that deals in business to consumer or business to business sales. The only audience it would not work for is government or education.
  • Position in the Event -This presentation is a good fit in any place in an event. It can be made funny and entertaining, or highly practical and informational.

  • As human beings, we are in the middle of an era where technology is systematically integrating more and more into our lives. The role that technology is now playing has a huge impact on our quality of life, and our careers. The impact of technology over the next 50 years and how it will integrate into our lives and even into our bodies will be staggering. This presentation examines ten steps in which technology will integrate into our lives. Executives will be able to take the futuristic views and apply them to their current strategies.
  • Best Audience -This talk is best targeted at executives that think they have heard it all, or general audiences that hear lots of speakers every year.
  • Position in the Event -Because this talk is meant to be very thought provoking, it can be used as an opening speech to get people thinking, or as a change of pace in the middle of a conference. It is best delivered between ninety minutes to two hours.

Did God Invent the Internet?

  • One of the most speculated questions people (especially parents) have about technology is how it will impact us as a human race. Will all these new digital tools be good or bad for us over time? What is it doing to us today? This is also a very thought leading speech meant to get people thinking big thoughts, such as, what will happen to the coming generations as they are augmented heavily with technologies their parents did not grow up with. How will organizations change as they become more virtualized and people communicate more and more through, and with, technology?
  • Best Audience -This is clearly a talk intended for an audience that has heard lots of speakers and is looking for something new. This plays well with any level of participant because it applies to both their work life and home life. This talk really benefits from the use of wifitti.com so that audience members can communicate with Scott by text message right to the screen.
  • Position in the Event -This presentation needs to be used as a change of pace in the middle of an event, or at the end of the event to send people home with some big thoughts about how technology is impacting them. It can be delivered in a one-hour to two-hour format.

EXPERIENCE

Scott is the founder of numerous successful technology startup companies, and this has helped him gain a unique perspective into technology’s impact on industry and humanity.  He is not just an observer of digital trends, he has routinely invested in his future visions with a great track record of success.

This unique perspective and future vision has allowed Scott to travel the globe as a speaker, consultant, and author.

As a technology entrepreneur, he also continually works in the trenches of building his own companies.

world and in the digital world. At TriCorps, Scott has developed a pioneering integrated security model which targets security from three directions: physical security, surveillance, and cybersecurity, providing a systematic approach to organizational security.

BACKGROUND

In 1999, Scott Klososky sold his company webcasts.com for $115 million. Webcasts.com, an early producer of webcasted media ranging from corporate and government communications to sporting events and entertainment, represented a career spent on the bleeding edge of technology.

Scott began his career fresh out of high school, where his job as a delivery boy was a springboard into the world of technology. He became division head of a computer sales division and then purchased it as his own company. It was eventually built into a twelve-store operation in three states.

His next endeavor was as founder and CEO of Paragraph, Inc., a Soviet/American joint venture founded in 1988, despite international tensions. Half of the company was sold to Silicon Graphics, and the other half is still expanding today (Parascript, Inc.).

Scott then collaborated with H.R. Haldeman to publish a diary of his years as the Chief of Staff to President Nixon, which was a bestseller (Putnam Publishing), and involved Sony Interactive in the release of a book companion CD-ROM.

He is also the founder and minority investor of Alkami Technology, a tech  startup that developed a 2nd generation online banking platform with innovative features non-existent in current systems. The privately-owned software company focuses on providing online account management solutions to the financial services industry.

He is the author of four books including his most recent title, Did God Create the Internet? The Impact of Technology on Humanity.
