|I take my material very seriously to ensure that the audience receives fresh, novel insights that they cannot readily access through other sources.|
|What do you want people to learn/take away from your presentations?|
|Actionable insights, methodologies, frameworks and/or case studies to practically apply to their firms and job functions. People need cutting-edge research, technologies, and actionable objectives, but they don’t have the time or resources to invest in this kind of work. I take my material very seriously to ensure that the audience receives fresh, novel insights that they cannot readily access through other sources.|
|What kind of special prep work do you do prior to an event? How do you prepare for your speaking engagements?|
| I easily spend over 80 hours (on average) preparing for a speaking engagement. I start 2 - 3 weeks in advance of a speaking engagement to ensure that I am fully prepared. I typically follow a clearly defined set of steps:
|Have you had any particularly memorable speaking engagements / unusual situations arise while on the road?|
|Most events go without a hitch, but being agile and remaining calm are key to handling unexpected events. Murphy’s Law is always in effect---you can’t avoid technical hiccups or the occasional enthusiastic audience member who asks questions in the middle of the presentation. I appreciate true audience engagement, so I recognize the speaker, thank them, joke with them, and then identify their need so it can be addressed after the presentation. In the end, we all have a great time.|
|What types of audiences would most benefit from your message?|
|My work targets decision-makers, visionaries, and managers who would like to understand how the technology landscape is changing and how it will impact their industries, firms, and careers.|
|Which of your keynote speaking topics are your favorites and why?|
|Wearables and the Internet of Things are the most exciting, since their implications are not always obvious, but are transformational on every level. Teaching, empowering, and equipping an audience to prepare for the rising tsunami of change is exhilarating and motivating.|
|What inspired you to start doing speaking engagements?|
|My writing on WIRED struck a chord with readers and conference organizers, and I was suddenly getting invited all over the world to speak on wearables and the Internet of Things. My speaking engagements were initially spread by word-of-mouth from audience members, and that has led to increased opportunities to share the most novel technologies and ideas from the world of wearables and the IoT.|
|How much do case studies, personal stories and/or humor factor into your keynote speech content?|
|These key aspects of audience engagement are the lifeblood of my work. After painstakingly working out the technical portion of my speech and presentation, I carefully weave in humor, personal stories, and case studies to better connect with and inform the audience. All of these elements are vital to enhance adult learning and make for an effective, memorable speech.|

How Wearables & IoT Are Reshaping Customer Engagement.
The rich, multi-modality data collected across wearables and IoT (smart watches, jewelry, clothing, clip-ons, connected cars, smart homes, industrial things, etc.) enable an intelligent ambient computing assistant, working symbiotically with your body area network and the broader Internet of Things environmental sensors.
From knowing when you are stressed and fatigued to what you're interested in the moment, using multiple facets of Artificial Intelligence, we can start to automatically determine your context, reaction, interest and cognitive load. After all, understanding how we perceive is often the driver to our decisions, behaviors, habits, and attitudes. Implications are significant from sales, marketing, advertising, customer service, healthcare, entertainment to even preserving one's most important moments in the form of physiological signatures associated with your emotional highs.
The 10x Potential of Wearables & IoT to Transform Advertising & Marketing
We as marketers are working with soft metrics for brand affinity, favorability, brand recall and engagement. How can we achieve brand metrics without hardening our numbers?
Real-time hard metrics on emotional and cognitive brand engagement frankly have not been readily available for marketers up to this point, until now. Thanks to new advancements in wearables and IoT, there is an opportunity to quantify and harden metrics on brand engagement, thus enabling 10x campaign optimization. Accurately target products and services in the right context, right time, right place, right frame of mind and right state of emotion
How to Create the Next Billion Dollar Opportunity in Wearables & the Internet of Things
This presentation provides a practical framework to systematically develop the next billion dollar wearable and IoT opportunity that leverages your company's core competencies.
Wearables to Transform the Office
3D virtual reality glasses with its 3D stereoscopic display, LCD field of view, RGB camera, infrared depth camera, three-axis accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, and spatial controls, these have the potential to handle business productivity applications in thin air. This eliminates the need for a laptop and desk, even an office. Your environment can become virtual. Work can take place anywhere.
Can Wearables Help You Reach Immortality?
The ramification of wearables and the Internet of Things are far greater just enabling sensor data and communication between people, objects, and machine-to-machine. It has the potential to extend life itself. At some point in the future, with all this exhaustive data set of your every moment, encounter, and physical responses, science may be able to stitch the video stream with physiological data to transfer to a new body, perhaps a human clone of yourself developed from your DNA or a robotic substrate.
The Humanization of Residential and Commercial Buildings
Wearables and the Internet of Things are not simply changing the landscape of smart cities but awakening the buildings themselves.
The advent of wearables and IoT coupled with application of AI/ machine learning are fundamentally changing the way we interact with physical objects around us, including buildings. Digital signage, AR/VR and intelligent content will cross over to smart residential and commercial buildings with integration of 3D avatars + natural language process (NLP) + gesture control & recognition + human emotion recognition to bring buildings to life. The personification of physical buildings opens up entire new opportunities and business models.
Wearables & Artificial Intelligence To Extend Enterprise Capabilities
Cloud ERP systems are about to become smarter, enabling higher worker productivity, organizational efficiency and revenue generation. AI-based ERP systems, working symbiotically with smart wearables, will help identify business opportunities, profile meeting participants, take notes, document decision criteria, update opportunities, and create action items on behalf of users to accelerate sales velocity. Employees will use intuitive gestural, eye-tracking, and mind-based means to generate content and access and manipulate information while computer vision, voice analysis, and physiological sensor data relayed to the ERP machine learning system can evaluate participants’ facial gestures, body movements, voice, and biometrics for non-verbal signals and congruency between what was said and how they really felt.
Integrating mHealth into the U.S. Healthcare System
mHealth-capable devices will penetrate user/patient data demand and make hospital operations a more efficient hub for the consumer, providing a better method and level of communication between providers and patients. Rather than relying solely on office visits, physicians who apply mHealth to their practice will easily monitor patients and engage with them wherever and whenever needed.
mHealth companies will transform the world of fitness apps and calorie trackers into customized, quantified, and health-oriented solutions for patients, providers, and physicians. As physicians acclimate to the mHealth movement and use mHealth tools to guide their patients, we will witness a healthcare revolution. Investors and businesses that can keep ahead of this trend are sure to capitalize on the opportunity.
Best Practices for Designing Mobile Apps Series
With any good problem solving the first and the most important question that we should ask in developing a mobile app is what is the problem that the user is trying to solve? Perhaps the user is trying to view their balance in their checking account before making a big purchase to avoid an overdraft protection fee or a sales executive needs to know the latest sales pipeline status with a prospect before an onsite meeting.
Framing up the problem properly is a critical component to an app’s success. Conversely, getting the problem wrong could mean the death of the app even before being launched. Understanding the who and why are fundamental to correctly framing up the context that will drive the mobile app design and development.
How to Design Mobile App Experience for Success: Mobile Flow Mapping
When it comes to creating a mobile app, many organizations jump right into wireframes, thinking that wireframes will solve all their design decisions. Though wireframes are not costly as outright iOS or Android development, if created in the absence of user personas, user journey, and mobile flow map, it’s potentially a time-consuming endeavor that could yield the wrong conclusion.
An important prerequisite before embarking on wireframes is a mobile flow map. Mobile flow mapping is an efficient and cost-effective means of vetting out the interaction data flow of your mobile app. In this article, I will walk you through the logical progression of developing a mobile flow map, starting with examination of uses cases to zeroing in on the most compelling, bite-size use case to solve with your mobile app and then visualizing the organization of a mobile app through flow mapping.
