Prior to Covid-19, much of my advisory work was spent convincing leaders that organisational transformation was much more than just another change programme or an exercise in digitalisation. A faster, smarter, cheaper Titanic is still a Titanic. Today, all leaders have a visceral understanding of what constitutes transformation.
Today the digital tsunami has been joined by the biological tsunami. And these are just two of the vectors at play.

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.
