Mike Walsh, best selling author of FUTURETAINMENT and CEO of innovation research lab Tomorrow, is a global authority on building businesses for the 21st century. Rather than focusing on the distant future, Mike takes an anthropological approach – scanning the near horizon for emerging technologies and disruptive shifts in human behaviour, and then translating these into pragmatic plans for business transformation.
A global nomad constantly traveling the world for the best ideas – Mike distills the most relevant insights into tailored keynotes that allow any audience to not only understand, but also start to inﬂuence the future direction of their industry.
Mike is currently CEO of Tomorrow, a global innovation lab whose clients have included Fujifilm, Merck Pharmaceutical, BBC Worldwide, Bentley Motors and HSBC. Mike previously founded Jupiter Research in Australia, and has also held senior strategy roles at News Corporation in the Asia Pacific Region. Mike’s views have appeared in Business Week, Fortune, Wallpaper Magazine, and has been profiled on CNN, Management TV, the ABC, and the BBC.
His previous book, FUTURETAINMENT was published by Phaidon and was the winner of a design award from the Art Director’s Club in NYC. With an engaging blend of first hand stories, global case studies and cutting edge research into consumer and technology trends – Mike can bring the future to life for you and your audience.
