Technology keynotes. For people.


Simon Waller delivered one of the best keynotes I‘ve ever seen, and I’ve seen heaps.

– Dr. Jason Fox, 2016 Keynote Speaker of the Year

Keynote Speaker Business Transformation

These days, having a technology speaker at your event is somewhat de rigueur though I imagine it’s sometimes difficult to know which one to choose. There are plenty of technology speakers out there who can entertain audiences with footage of the latest selfie drone or app-connected suitcase (yes, both of those are real), but in an age where digital technology is driving massive business disruption across almost every industry sector, well, you might be looking for something a bit more meaningful.

If there was one theme that runs across all my keynotes it would be the need for us to reflect on how we use digital technology and what we can do to be more effective in the future. My keynotes are not designed to reassure your audience that everything is going to be OK (because it’s probably not) but rather to engage your audience in a way that inspires them to take action.

At Simon’s presentation he had us captivated right from the beginning. His knowledge and understanding of digital technology was amazing and his presentation made it so easy to understand.

I have and will highly recommend Simon to members of my network as an exceptional guest speaker who is very enthralling and will certainly bring you into the current digital technology period and prepare you for the next!!!

Simon delivered a compelling presentation to our top 100 leaders on digital disruption and the future of work. Simon’s depth of knowledge and expertise shone through as he shared many relevant and interesting insights and examples from across different industries and times. Simon’s interactive approach was refreshing and helped our leaders better understand the impacts and opportunities available to us.

Simon’s deep knowledge of digital progression and interruption across modern society was perfectly adapted to speak to the very core of real estate practitioners at our recent REIWA Conference. Thank you, Simon, for giving us the insights and strategies to overcome our fears of technology and for showing us how technology can enhance the customer experience for real estate agents everywhere.

Simon was our Guest Keynote at the 2016 OpenText Innovation Tour, Sydney held on 23rd Feb 2016. Simon delivered a superb keynote around the “Need to make Technology Personal” for increased relevancy and success in today’s digital world.

His message was simple, clear & crisp. Simon strongly connected with the audience while making the session lively & entertaining. I’d happily recommend Simon for anyone looking for a customer centric point of view on how to succeed in today’s digital world.
