Ade McCormack is a near futurist. He has a ‘bits to boardroom’ perspective on how organisations need to change to avoid disruption.
He is a former technologist who, as mentioned, is now focused on helping organisations and individuals thrive in the post-industrial world. His experience ranges from ‘bits to boardroom’. He also provides an anthropological twist to what appears to be technology-driven market disruption.
His style is considered provocative, inspiring, engaging and insightful. More often than not, he is engaged to provide a ‘zoom out’ perspective on how the world of work, workers and leadership are changing as we enter the digital age. Along with what action needs to be taken to remain economically relevant. This makes him an ideal opening keynoter for any event where the future matters.
He has worked in approximately 30 countries across many sectors, ranging from space science to public sector.
He has written a number of books. His latest being ‘Beyond Nine to Five – Your career guide for the digital age’. Ade is a former Financial Times columnist on digital leadership, and has lectured at MIT Sloan School of Management on this topic. He currently writes for CIO magazine, and is a judge on the CIO 100.
