I am an experienced international keynoter / public speaker. My audiences range from a select gathering of executive diners through to arena-scale events.
My focus is on disruption and people-centric transformation. I cover the implications for business models, leadership and talent management. I explore the changing nature of risk and culture. I consider the path humanity is taking in respect of augmentation and cognition. Strategically, I provide guidance on how to harness disruption and thus create super-resilient organisations. Personally, I guide the audience on what they need to do to remain economically relevant in these increasingly uncertain and volatile times.
My thought leadership and practical experience enable me to provide both a zoom-out and zoom-in perspective. I am often asked to be the opening keynoter because my perspectives set a disruptive and mind-moving tone for the overall summit / conference / event.
My keynotes draw from several disciplines including neuroscience, anthropology, information technology, biology and performance management. I am considered a near-futurist because my content, whilst forward thinking, is relevant to the current challenges the audience faces.

What they are saying…
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.
