Digital Disruption in Events with futurologist Andrew Grill : Episode 007

13 Nov, 2018

“Each of us will be employing a digital assistant and because it will be AI powered, it will learn all about us.”

“To get Digital, you need to be Digital”

“Bitcoin was never designed to be a global currency.”


In this podcast, I catch-up with the very busy futurologist, keynote speaker and former IBM Global Managing Partner, Andrew Grill as we chat digital disruption and events.

We talk how to get digital, Bitcoin, Betty the Bot, off-loading the tedium, the role of personal digital agents, attracting high profits, data in the cloud or in a Swiss bank, poor event apps, the 15 people you should really network with and Arthur C Clarke.
