Nick Abrahams, Futurist & Global Leader Digital Transformation | Norton Rose Fulbright
Nick is a LinkedIn Top Voice in Technology and was just named in Engatica’s 2023 list of the World’s Top 200 Business Innovators. He has been a partner at international law and consulting firm Norton Rose Fulbright for over twenty years, spending the last seven years in global technology and innovation leadership roles. Nick created the world’s first AI-enabled privacy chatbot and won the Financial Times newspaper’s “Asia Innovator or the Year Award”. He is the Co-founder of LawPath, an online legal solution with over 300,000 customers. Nick is much sought after in the media and is the host of the popular podcast “Web3 goes Mainstream”.
Nick will discuss what people in your industry need to know about AI (eg. ChatGPT), Web3, digital assets, fintech, decentralised finance, robotics, automation, augmented-reality, social media + demographic shifts. He will also discuss how people can innovate to make the most of these trends, providing actionable ideas you can use immediately.
I use a lot of stories in my speeches as I find this makes the information more accessible for people. These stories are unique to me as they come from the digital transformation work that I have done globally for clients as well as from my experience as co-founder of LawPath, growing a business from zero to 50+ employees.
I used to be a professional comedian and so my presentations are not only full of insights but are entertaining. My style is very upbeat and I use a lot of audio and video content to keep the audience engaged and energised.
The Future of Your Business is Digital or Doomed
Warren Buffett said that “digital transformation is a fundamental reality for all businesses today”. Digital transformation is the integration of digital technology into all areas of a business, fundamentally changing how you operate and deliver value to customers. It is how you modify or invent massively improved processes with a blend of people, processes and technology. According to John Chambers, legendary leader of CISCO “At least 40% of all business will die in the next 10 years if they don’t figure out how to change their entire companies to accommodate new technologies.”
Nick leads the Digital Transformation Practice at global firm Norton Rose Fulbright and has advised many of the world’s largest companies on their digital transformation strategies. This session is perfect for leaders and aspirational leaders who want to understand the main trends driving digital transformation and how they can apply these trends in their own businesses. This session can be tailored specifically to deal with how digital transformation is impacting any industry eg. financial services, health, energy, retail, property, construction, education, government, mining etc.
Nick will provide strategic guidance, actionable insights and a few laughs along the way. Key take always for those attending Nick’s session include:
