Tech won’t cut it…
There is a popular myth in circulation that the way to prepare your organisation for an unknowable future is to sprinkle it with the latest new technologies. Faster, smart, cheaper is good. But a faster, smarter, cheaper Titantic is still a Titanic at the end of the day. And even one optimised to detect icebergs is no match for air travel.
Smart organisations looking to thrive in the post industrial era realise that the requisite change needed is much more profound than a tech overhaul.
Sample subthemes to explore include:
- The increasing importance of innovation.
- The importance of NOT transforming your primary business.
- The increasing importance of people and data.
- How to build an environment that is optimised for people and thus innovation.

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.
