    Neil Mandt's Speech Descriptions


    The Internet is undergoing a fundamental transformation, from a decades-old two-dimensional network of interconnected systems to an emerging, more powerful three-dimensional framework called Web 3.0 or the Metaverse. Being able to look around the bend of this consequential transition gives companies the necessary head-start in strategizing and creating actionable plans that separate those that evolve from those that are left behind. History is replete with firms like Blockbuster Video and Kodak that failed to understand the speed of change from new technologies. Neglecting to consider emerging innovations can cripple a dominant global company, seemingly overnight.

    Neil Mandt is uniquely skilled at simplifying the many complex aspects of Web 3.0, including Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, AI & robotics, which are all leading to a new phase of the human experience in the workplace and our social environment. Neil breaks down how this new Metaverse is evolving and explores many of the challenges and opportunities it presents across a wide variety of industries. No organization or individual will be immune to its impact. Through his dynamic and engaging presentations, Neil shares the insights and wisdom he has gained from 35+ years of entrepreneurship in media and technology, to help corporate leaders to better understand how to both mitigate risk and profit from looming technological change. The convergence of media and advanced technologies will create entirely new realities that catapult businesses to new levels of success in the digital and physical worlds; Neil Mandt provides a roadmap.
