Keynote Speech


Opening a very special art show, journalist and insider, Quentin Hardy examines society’s conflicted emotions over technological advancements, particularly our “powerful personal computers”: the smart phone. While we may feel more connected than ever to the world around us, this accomplishment does not come without the disturbing sense that we are under surveillance by the rest of the world, as everything we view and post is collected, analyzed, and turned into predictions.

This emotional confusion has been illustrated in the artwork of his friend, Joanna Salska, whose paintings he claims capture “this kind of change in how people feel about the world and themselves, this deeper sense of connection and also this troubling sense of being overwhelmed by all that is going around us.”

    The Way Ahead: Rebuilding Three Circles of Trust
    In today’s business climate every business, institution and household faces the same problem: Whom should I trust and how do I get people to trust me? In the age of Bernie Madoff and the derivatives debacle, it seems like everyone on Wall Street is suspect. Meanwhile, good businesses cannot get loans—thanks to the credit crunch—while a culture of cynicism is fed by gotcha journalists and quick-hit bloggers. This should, can and will end. Quentin Hardy has reported on Japanese financial collapses, the dotcom bubble and today’s financial woes.

    Community, Contagion and Capitalism: Technology and the Future of Society
    The communications revolution has not just sped up our lives; it has changed the way we think about politics, companies and even national power. If you are under the impression that this type of revolution is a new experience for humanity, think again. Comparisons with the distant past are important as we try to make sense of the ever-evolving role of technology in our lives and use communication tools and resources from Twitter, Facebook and Skype.

    Managing that Matters: Lessons from Planet Google
    Management guru Peter Drucker called the creation of the computer “the birth of a new basic civilization” in which managers would take on entirely new roles and work would be organized in unforeseen ways. His predictions are coming true as the organization and management of companies such as Google, Cisco and Yahoo! retool their structures aimed at achieving a new level of efficacy.
