Just a dude who enjoys disruptive new things and discussing them with other people. I'm particularly interested in disruptive new things that deal with money, technology, design and behavioural sciences. I currently work as a partner at 22seven and host a radio show called (tech)5 - pronounced 'tech to the power of five' - on 5FM. I also co-present a podcast called Take Back the Day and write about technology and trends for Finweek magazine and some books I'm working on.
Doing these things requires a full-time preoccupation with science, new technologies and trends, which I am often asked to speak about at conferences and other events.
I've recently presented keynotes, panel discussions and live broadcasts at Good Morning in Stockholm, the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas and TEDxTableMountain in Cape Town. Topics I am often asked to talk about include innovation, digital trends, behavioural economics, disruption in the financial industry and design, amongst other things. No matter what the occasion, I tend to focus on relevant trends that are happening now instead of pretending to be able to predict the future. So if you want to know, for example, how the rise of contextual computing is changing the lives of your customers then I may be able to help. Don't ask me when we'll have flying cars.
