Clients engage me when they need a compelling speaker who can communicate how the world is changing.

Audiences leave with a different and more empowering view on how to thrive in an increasingly uncertain and volatile world. I take an anthropological perspective and relate it to, for example:

Business models, innovation, attention, cognition, leadership, technology (AI, robotics), talent, risk, culture, future of work, strategy and transformation.

    Welcome to the Digital Age
  • We wanted someone who would engage our leadership differently. Ade did this brilliantly.  Engaging, fast paced and multifaceted. Just what was needed to shake things up a little in the last session of our conference!

  • We recently held a conference in Milan around “Digital” for our senior partners throughout the MED region (Italy, Spain and Portugal) and Ade joined us by VC as a keynote speaker. Even by VC Ade kept the audience captive with lots of note taking and it also provoked a lot of discussion after the event. One of the most compelling keynote speakers that we have had in the MED region.

  • Ade understands business and IT opportunities through the lens of executives and how to present this back in a concise manner with clear takeaways.

  • Ade spoke at an event for around 250 of our UK & Israel Technology team. Ade has a fantastic presentation style, and it was clear in the prep calls that he was able to take our overall theme of the event and link that to his presentation. I would highly recommend Ade as a motivational speaker and thought leader.

  • Ade McCormack sounds a much-needed clarion call for IT to “grow up”  and become a mature business function.
