03 Jan VIRTUAL KEYNOTE SPEAKER: MEETINGS, EVENTS, FIRESIDE CHATS
As virtual keynote speakers and live key note speakers for meetings, events, conferences, and tradeshows, we’re frequently asked to appear in virtual fireside chats. These often take the form of informal interviews in which we’re asked to explore a range of topics from the future of work to creativity, innovation, business, sales, marketing and more. To give a better sense of what it’s like to be virtual keynote speakers and event hosts, here’s a sampling of the types of questions that we’re often asked to speak to in front of audiences of 1000 or more executives. As you might imagine, these types of programs present a fun opportunity to put on our futurist thinking caps and connect with working professionals from every industry and background.
1. As an expert on market trends and new technologies, what can financial institutions do to promote a more innovative, creative, and inspirational work environment in their business?
2. Could you tell us more about your new endeavor, POP FUTURE? How does it represent future of training and development? And how we can use this new mindset in our roles at our employer?
3. What would you say has been your most exciting or rewarding business venture to date?
4. Can you go deeper into the organizations you founded, FutureProof Strategies and BIZDEV: The International Association for Business Development and Strategic Partnerships, and what they mean to you personally and professionally?
5. What can businesses and brands do to future-proof themselves more effectively in a world of ongoing change and disruption?
6. You train thousands of executives to think like futurists every year – what does it take to successfully adapt to uncertainty and plan for tomorrow?
7. What career advice would you give individuals in a financial institution hoping to develop not only their hard and soft skills, and be more innovative?
8. Do you have any tips for helping data analytics professionals in keeping their skills relevant?
