With over 25 years in the technology industry (and via his former “day job” as “Chief Envisioning Officer” at Microsoft) Dave is at the forefront of conversations on how individuals and organisations could benefit from the transformational potential of technology, rather than simply using it to do the same things… but only slightly better.

Invited as principal keynote speaker at Children’s Global Media Summit (hosted by the BBC: December 2017), he writes: “We continue to raise our children with a mindset that was forged in the fires of the 19th century. As a result, we are preparing our children for a world that no longer exists.  Unless we fundamentally change the way in which we think about, engage with and educate our children, we risk being derelict in our duty as the guardians of their future, as we send them out into a world for which they are simply not prepared.  The Rise of the Humans seeks to re-dress this balance by helping the next generation to embrace the incredible opportunity technology offers us and, in so doing, enables them to live up to the potential of evolving technology, rather than to be constrained by it”.

Dave Coplin will address the intersection of modern society technology during his keynote session at the Inspiring Leadership Conference 2020.
