David Rowan shares insights on digital trends at Davos 2019
A prolific writer and speaker, DAVID ROWAN deconstructs tech trends in real time—how the Internet of Things, 3D printing, big data, artificial intelligence, and more are changing businesses and consumers. At the World Economic Forum he moderated a discussion on "Game Changing Trends in Digital and Analytics". Rowan frequently delivers fully customized keynotes that reveal the future of your industry, how companies can transform their values, and how to survive and prosper in a tech future. His new book "The Disruptors: A Wired Editor’s Quest for Non-Bullshit Innovation" will detail his global quest to identify "visionary leaders who have managed to recalibrate their businesses in radical ways to grow and succeed in the digital age" - and shows where he discovered "genuinely exciting innovation ... in places you might not expect". Rowan's keynotes deliver the same kinds of surprising and useful takeaways. Having recently delivered a slam dunk keynote entitled "Don't fall for fake innovation! Building industries that matter" at Impact CEE-- one of the most important events on the future of the digital economy-- in the coming months Rowan will shed light on "The New Rules of Business" at the 2019 Leading Real Estate Annual Conference.
David Rowan reveals the human side of technological advancement
“Technology doesn’t happen in isolation,” DAVID ROWAN, said at the opening of his keynote at the CEB’s ReimagineHR event in London. Rather, Rowan continued, technological advancements create new norms of behavior that affect society and business in far-reaching ways. In today’s world of rapid and accelerating technological change, there is an unprecedented need for business leaders to understand not only new technologies, but also what they do to human behavior. When it comes to the impact of technology on the workforce, Rowan is sanguine about the human role in the future of work. Human workers have survived past technological disruptions and will survive this one as well, he said, as artificial intelligence, robotics, and machine learning take over people’s routine tasks and free up their time for higher-level work like planning and strategy.Watch David Rowan’s keynote presentation “How to Make the Most of Where Technology is Taking the Workplace” at CEB’s ReimagineHR event in London >>
