Let’s face it, the future isn’t going to wait on us and neither is technology. Companies and organizations must be able to adapt on-a-dime and navigate new technologies and marketplace channels with ease to ensure continued company success. If you feel a little lost or overwhelmed these days, you’re not alone! Now is the perfect time to hire top tech speakers to share their expert insights to educate and inspire your employees and/or organizational members. Each of these top tech speakers below have a unique perspective on how to create a successful business in any industry and can tailor their keynote speech to pinpoint specific issues and event messaging you would like conveyed to your staff.
Steve Wozniak: The man, the myth, the legend and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is hands down one of the most fun-loving and entertaining top tech speakers available for hire right now. Not only did he have a hand in creating arguably the most popular tech company on the planet, but he’s also spent the last decade and more educating new businessmen and women on the future of innovation, creativity and the technology industry as a whole as a motivational keynote speaker for corporate conferences, industry forums and university speaker series. Steve prefers a moderated Q&A format which breaks from the monotonous “talking-head” style of regular keynotes and allows for an enjoyable conversation flow that engages audiences members and keeps their attention throughout the program.
Katia Beauchamp: Subscription based services have been around forever, but all it takes is one person to think outside the box to create a whole new avenue of business opportunity. In today’s wild west of subscription based services, that person is Katia Beauchamp. Katia is the co-founder and CEO of BirchBox, the subscription-based e-commerce company that sparked the recent beauty subscription box phenomenon that has given way to other modern online-to-door subscription services such as BarkBox and BirdieBox. Katia paved her own way to success and is a true visionary in the world of e-commerce. As a keynote guest speaker, Katia talks about her experiences as a tech entrepreneur in an ultra-competitive marketplace while also touching on more personal topics such as how to find a healthy work-life balance and finding joy and inspiration in the work you do every day.
Richard Branson: Any list of top tech speakers would be totally incomplete without Virgin Group Founder and CEO Richard Branson. Branson has founded 8 billion-dollar companies in 8 different sectors and currently operates over 400 companies worldwide. He’s an incredibly focused and determined individual who hasn’t forgotten the most important part of success: enjoying and appreciating the journey. At times it honestly feels like there’s nothing this guy can’t do and he brings that same can-do attitude and self-belief to events as a motivational keynote speaker. Richard breaks down business topics and success tips in a way that is understandable to audiences and provides practical advice that audience members can put into practice immediately.
Sallie Krawcheck: Sallie is best recognized as one of the most powerful women on Wall Street and the former CEO of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management. In recent years, Sallie has been on a mission to create better avenues for women in business to achieve their financial and personal goals through her digital investment platform Ellevest and her global professional network, Ellevate Network. In January of 2017, Sallie released a bestselling book titled Own It: The Power of Women at Work to rave reviews. In it she shares a new set of rules for women in business that play to their strengths and builds on the power they already have. Sallie is an empowering female entrepreneur who continues to be a top choice for corporations and women’s organizations hosting womens conferences and leadership summits.
Robert Herjavec: This dynamic entrepreneur and investor has been a hot ticket on the speaker circuit ever since he made his debut on the hit business reality TV series “Shark Tank” which began airing on ABC in 2009. Robert came from humble beginnings living on a farm in Croatia before moving to Canada and earning 2 bachelor degrees from the University of Toronto. He started his first IT company out of his basement and eventually sold that company a few years later for $30.2 million. Robert is truly a pleasure to work with for personal appearances and keynote speeches. His sense of humor, energy and interaction with his audiences brings the presentation to life and helps drive home the important lessons he has learned while building successful business ventures. And yes, he has some great stories to share from behind the scenes of Shark Tank!
Mitch Lowe: Mitch is considered one of the forefathers of the modern video streaming service industry as a co-founding executive of Netflix and former President of RedBox. While at RedBox, he grew revenue from $1 million in 2003 to over $1.5 billion by 2011. He is currently the CEO of MoviePass, another subscription-based service for movie theaters. Mitch’s typical keynote speech centers around his own experiences in brand building including topics such as facing tough leadership decisions, creating a winning company culture and using teamwork to spark innovation and success. His universal strategies for success resonate with budding entrepreneurs and small businesses as well as large corporations looking to re-energize their employees.
Reshma Saujani: Reshma is one of the more unique speakers on our list of top tech speakers this week. Reshma is the only Indian-American ever to run for Congress but found her calling outside of Washington as the founder and CEO of the tech organization Girls Who Code. Her mission is simple, to encourage and increase the women in the computer/programming industry and close the gender gap in technology. In 2016, Reshma delivered a riveting TEDxTalk where she urged the world to teach girls bravery, not perfection. She encouraged women and young girls to take risks and pursue their dreams without limitations. Most recently, Reshma was named the headlining keynote speaker for Opticon 2017 in Las Vegas this October.
Dr. James Canton: Another former Apple exec who can share great insight into the future of innovation in technology and other industries is Dr. James Canton. James was a business and strategic planning executive for Apple Computers in the beginning stages of the company during the early 80’s. He has worked in global investment banking, high tech start-ups and trade finance before founding his own business, The Institute for Global Futures. The institute is a San Francisco-based think tank that forecasts innovation and global trends for companies and organizations. James is an incredibly intelligent individual who can talk on a large number of topics from big data, AI and machine learning to entrepreneurship, predictive analytics, cloud computing and geo-engineering. James loves to tailor his presentation to your specific challenges to provide meaningful insights that your employees can relate to.
Michael Lynton: Michael was the longstanding CEO of Sony Pictures before stepping down this year to take a position as Chairman of Snap, Inc., the creators of the overwhelmingly popular Snapchat app. He was an early investor in Snapchat and is now part of the decision-making team that is redefining mobile app capabilities in the digital age. Many organizations have sought to hire Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel who is not considering keynote opportunities at this time given his many duties within the company. Michael is a fantastic alternative who can share his insights into what has made Snapchat so successful in recent years and the ways that companies can adapt and adjust to the ever-changing digital marketplace. This week, Michael served as one of the featured top tech speakers headlining the annual Sun Valley Media & Tech Conference.
