Seamless - Weaving Digital & Analogue Worlds

The world is filled with friction. Everywhere we go we experience the frictive effects of badly designed “seams”. Smart brands understand that the future of customer service, great customer experience and the creation of raving fans, lies in their ability to design seamless transitions between physical and digital channels, and to deliberately and empathetically remove friction from our lives. In a future of the Internet of Things, Virtual Reality, and Artificial Intelligence, the ability of leaders and brands to go ‘seamless’ will distinguish the winners from the losers.

Waves of Change: Three Global Trends Disrupting your Existence

Having your finger on the pulse of the marketplace has never been more important. We are operating in a turbo-charged environment that waits for no one. Waves of Change is a fascinating 'Did you know?' session covering the three major forces of change that are threatnening every business. A perfect session to shake off organisational ‘change apathy’ and prepare your team for what’s next.scape.

Digilogue - The Convergence of Digital and Analogue

As some organisations careen recklessly into the digital future, others are being left behind. Smart companies are however realising there is an important middle ground – the Digilogue. A place where digital and analogue converge. Where progressive ‘digital’ strategies satisfy a customer's mind while the old fashioned ‘analogue’ practices sooth their hearts.

I was looking for an engaging and thought-provoking speaker for our annual conference. I needed my opening keynote to not only energize the crowd but to also help set the tone of the conference for the full week. Anders delivered all the above and so much more, helping us kick off one of our best conferences to date. He adapted his speech to the unique demographics of our audience, heeding all my recommendations and requests. His informative, energetic and quirky/entertaining style was a huge hit with our attendees.


Anders' style is as entertaining and engaging as it is upbeat and informative. From the audience feedback, I know the attendees appreciated your unique take on forces at play in our global business environment and the personal transformations we must all undergo to remain compatible, effective and relevant.

President & CEO - Fortune 500 Company

Anders' professionalism and attention to our needs displayed before and after his presentation was particularly refreshing. He made a great effort to understand our unique audience and address their specific challenges.


Anders impressed us with his great knowledge, his ability to put this into relevance and context of the Digital Era and the challenges we are going through.
