A LITTLE ABOUT ME

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW.

"Now that we can do anything - what shall we do?"

Josh started as a hacker in his parent's basement and ended up working with leaders at the upper echelon of business, government, and internet security.

Along the way it became clear that a tipping point in new technology was changing commerce as we knew it in a myriad of ways.

From black market economies to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, from the radical departures in exchange and marketing enabled by Big Data to the as-yet-unrealized analytic capabilities of Cloud Computing, Josh has specialized in translating these insights into actionable strategies for business leaders.

INSIGHTS YOU CAN USE.
A PRESENTATION YOUR AUDIENCE WILL REMEMBER.

Josh’s latest book, Reputation Economics, details exactly how emerging technologies are shaking the foundation of traditional commerce.

Since its release (MacMillan, last fall), the followup has been enormous. From Fortune 500 leaders to anonymous black-hat hackers, Josh has been inundated with insights the public simply hasn’t heard yet. From privately-funded city-wide facial recognition to laptop-camera hijacking emotional analytics-powered advertisements, the rise of Reputation Economics is just beginning.

Josh has combed through it all to pull out the most startling, motivating facts, figures, and anecdotes for your particular audience.

HOW DOES THIS WORK?

A great speech needs to be meaningful, must tell a story, and has to give your audience action to take.

RESEARCH

Each speech starts with research. No two audiences are alike, and examples need to be drawn from the latest events and code releases to ensure that every participant leaves with actionable insight they can use, now.

STORYTELLING

Powerpoint hell this is not. Each speech focuses on a narrative that creates impact to reinforce insight. These are stories your attendees will be telling to their friends and clients at cocktail parties and boardrooms - for months.

ACTION

Great examples? Check. Riveting storytelling? Check. But none of that matters without an actionable understanding of what’s changing and what to do about it. Solid next steps, grounded in meaningful insight. Now that’s valuable.
