Public Speaking

I have always been fascinated by our collective process of change. As I uncover subjects that I believe would be of wider interest, I pull together talks on changing trends. These range from 20 minute talks to hour-long presentations that include extensive Q&A. Or I will design a talk to meet the particular needs of your group.

The Digital Revolution
Bending Everybody’s Cost Curve
Digital products bring a unique economic quality to the world. Once development costs are paid for, the cost to produce one more copy, or a thousand more copies, is virtually nil.

Your smartphone contains apps that DigRevreplace dozens of physical products – everything from cameras and fax machines to medical and fitness gear.
