About Ade

Near futurist, digital strategist, author and keynote speaker

Ade is a former technologist, who today is focused on helping individuals and organisations thrive in the digital age. In more recent years, his focus has taken a more strategic / macroeconomic / future-oriented perspective. Thus, he has a forward-thinking, ‘bits to boardroom’, grasp of what is happening in the market, and of how his clients can capitalise on the changes taking place.

Ade is known for his thought-provoking perspectives, and his ability to communicate in a clear, engaging and entertaining manner. This makes him a much sought-after public speaker across the world.

His zoom-out perspectives on the drivers behind today’s market realities enable both leaders and their people to deeply understand the actions they need to take to remain economically relevant.
