First we do things differently, then we do different things
David will challenge us to think about how technology is not just changing how we do things but the very nature of what we do and even, what we are.
As a futurist, marketer and technologist he is ideally placed to identify for us how emerging technologies will change how consumers engage with their suppliers and change how they live, work and play. At the same time, suppliers have a mass of data and technologies to use to bring compelling and persuasive propositions to their customers, in new and innovative ways.
The one thing we will be certain of is that we are all going to experience enormous change in the next few years.
