Keynote speaker Scott Klososky is a thought leader who specializes in helping leaders see the world in new ways. He has used innovation, velocity, and future vision to build his own companies, and advise clients. Speaking to audiences across the market spectrum, he never fails to send them home with at least three new ideas that can be applied right away. Scott is one of very few people who can translate where technology and trends are going in an engaging and entertaining way. It is also rare to find someone who has his combination of both “over the horizon” vision and “in the trenches” experience.
As a speaker Scott Klososky’s goal is not just to inform, but to TRANSFORM the audience’s way of thinking. Scott constantly updates and customizes his presentations, so it’s no surprise clients ask him to come back again and again.
Are You My Friend? Social Trends & Generational Issues
Technology is simply a tool. Without the people who utilize it, there is no value. Because many people have a love/hate relationship with technology, it is critical to understand how people can be helped in order to fully leverage the advantages of available tools. Never before in history have we had such a variance in the skill sets of generations working together within one organization. This program includes practical methods for making this dynamic a positive, instead of an area of friction.
Social Technologies (Social Media, Social Networking and Social Relevance)
SocialTech is the hottest trend in technology at the moment. Leaders are trying to figure out how to harness this powerful new suite of tools. In this presentation, Scott gives a top to bottom tutorial on the best practices for implementing a SocialTech strategy with impact. It is important to note that this is not a session that teaches best practices for using LinkedIn or Facebook. This is a robust keynote backed by strong graphical explanations of why SocialTech matters, and how it is changing the sales process, customer service and marketing. Areas specifically covered are subjects like online reputation management, crowdsourcing, building rivers of knowledge, and becoming industry experts.
Trends, Technology and Taking the Lead
Technology is simply a tool, but in the right hands, it can almost be magical in its ability to give us new capabilities. For this reason, it is critical to understand how technology can be fully leveraged in order to drive top-line revenues, or lower bottom-line costs. This is a talk that is both thought provoking and practical. Scott combines highlighting a few new trends that people might be aware of, and adds a few over the horizon trends that are completely new. To this Scott adds the delivery of practical technology tools, or concepts that can be used as soon the attendees get back to the office. In the end with a fast paced and entertaining style, Scott creates context for many of the words and concepts that they have heard about but cannot really apply just yet.
The Technology Integration of Man
As human beings, we are in the middle of an era where technology is systematically integrating more and more into our lives. The role that technology is now playing has a huge impact on our quality of life, and our careers. The impact of technology over the next 50 years and how it will integrate into our lives and even into our bodies will be staggering. This presentation examines ten steps in which technology will integrate into our lives. Executives will be able to take the futuristic views and apply them to their current strategies.
Did God Invent the Internet?
One of the most speculated questions people (especially parents) have about technology is how it will impact us as a human race. Will all these new digital tools be good or bad for us over time? What is it doing to us today? This is also a very thought leading speech meant to get people thinking big thoughts, such as, what will happen to the coming generations as they are augmented heavily with technologies their parents did not grow up with. How will organizations change as they become more virtualized and people communicate more and more through, and with, technology?
A Technology Infused Leader
There are thousands of leadership books out on the market, and what all of them seem to be missing is any discussion of what a leader now needs to know about technology in order to be effective going forward. We have a plethora of Baby Boomer and Traditional generation leaders that did not grow up with technology and really have no idea how to leverage it or manage the people that do. This talk is a very practical discussion of a handful of new concepts and ideas for what a leader now must be able to do well in order to lead effectively in the information age. This includes a better ability to see into the future, leverage technology holistically as if it were digital plumbing, and mature the institutional culture of the organization so that the younger technology savvy generations can prosper.
