Rachel Botsman is a renowned expert on trust and technology and what this means for life, work and how we do business.
She is the author of Who Can You Trust? How Technology Brought Us Together – and Why It Could Drive Us Apart. The book revolutionises the perception of trust. If the digital world has built and enabled diverse networks of people, what responsibilities do the tech companies have? Do people trust strangers and AI more than government or the established media? Is the result more division rather than unity?
Rachel Botsman is also widely regarded as a guru on the sharing economy. In her first book, What’s Mine is Yours: How Collaborative Consumption is Changing the Way We Live, she predicted the rise of sharing economy companies such as Airbnb, TaskRabbit and Uber, long before they became popular.
Rachel is a lecturer at Oxford University’s Saïd Business School, where she designed and teaches the world’s first MBA course on the Collaborative Economy. She was included in Fast Company’s Most Creative People in Business, and one of the 50 most influential management thinkers in the world by Thinkers50.
