We all know that technology is evolving at a rapid rate, and it’s changing the way we live. Do you call a cab, or do you use Uber? Do you stay in a hotel, or do you check Airbnb? Do you read a book or a Kindle? These products and services quickly enter our world and become the norm. But just knowing that technology is evolving is not enough, you need to understand how it is impacting you and how you can evaluate what industry will be disrupted next.
Our guest this week is Paul Armstrong. Paul is a leading strategist, author and speaker on the future of technology, disruption, retail innovation, media industry, social technologies, and more. Paul runs the technology advisory HERE/FORTH where he helps clients understand trends and how to sensibly apply emerging technologies strategically.
