My guest today has been called “one of the truly deep thinkers in the arena of technology and culture” (Geoff James of CBS Interactive Media), and his writing has been deemed “a brilliant vision of where we must take our enterprises to survive and thrive” (Tom Peters). Thomas Koulopoulos is the chairman of the Boston-based global innovation think tank Delphi Group (which was named one of the fastest growing private companies in the US by Inc. Magazine), a columnist for Inc.com, an adjunct professor at Boston University Graduate School of Management, and an Executive in Residence at Bentley University.
Formerly the Executive Director of the Babson College Center for Business Innovation and Executive Director of the Dell Innovation Lab, Thomas has written eleven books, including Cloud Surfing: A New Way to Think About Risk, Innovation, Scale & Success and Gen Z Effect: The Six Forces Shaping the Future of Business. In this episode, he shares insights from his newest book, Revealing the Invisible: How Our Hidden Behaviors Are Becoming the Most Valuable Commodity of the 21st Century, as well as his predictions for how advancements in technology and AI will shape our future. Listen in to hear how human behavior and innovation are linked, and how the inevitable technological shifts will make our lives easier and more productive.
