FUTURIST AND EVENT SPEAKER
Having the right speaker can make or break your event. And for audiences that have increasingly ‘seen it all before’ event organisers are increasingly looking for something truly unique.
Simon Waller is a futurist and keynote speaker based in Melbourne, Australia. As a speaker Simon talks on topics such as the impact of AI and technology on our work and the importance of leadership and culture in a rapidly changing workscape. But if his content is what makes his keynotes thought provoking, it’s his use of technology that makes them special.
As a futurist Simon saw the irony of keynote speakers and ‘thought leaders’ relying on 20 year old technologies such as Microsoft PowerPoint and Apple Keynote to deliver their presentations. Looking for inspiration Simon started exploring the technology used by visual designers working on concerts, music festivals and theatre productions.
Inspired by the multi-sensory experiences of these live music events, Simon seeks to constantly push the boundaries of what technology makes possible. His keynotes bring together thought-provoking ideas and cutting edge video and sound mixing technology to create truly memorable experiences that would be impossible to recreate on the ‘small screen’ of virtual events.
After nearly a decade of working with tools such as Resolume, Apple Motion and Logic Pro Simon delivers a new level of engagement and wonder to corporate audiences. Over that time, he has also worked with filmmakers, sound designers and musicians to craft unique visual and audio compositions that captivate audiences.
But more than just style, Simon’s keynote presentations are also big on substance. He explores the emerging challenges and opportunities that the rampant uptake of technology has brought to our work and lives.
