RECENT ENGAGEMENTS

A sought-after writer, keynote speaker and consultant, Tom Goodwin has built a 20-year career spanning advertising/creative, digital, and media agencies, and currently advises a range of Fortune 500 companies on business transformation for the post-digital age.

 

His role is to understand new technology, behaviors, and platforms, and to ideate and implement solutions for clients that take advantage of these new opportunities.

Tom is the author of Digital Darwinism: Survival of the Fittest in the Age of Business Disruption (Kogan Page, 2018), which helps companies understand how to digitally and culturally transform and drive innovation. The book is now in its sixth print run and has been translated into seven languages. To date, Tom has spoken in more than 80 cities across 40 countries around the world. 


As a columnist, Tom has contributed to the Guardian, TechCrunch, Forbes, Marketing Week, British GQ, Ad Age, Adweek, The Drum, MediaPost, Inc, Digiday, and the World Economic Forum. His commentary on the future of business has been quoted in The New York Times and The Economist, and he has appeared on global news programs including i24News and CNBC. An industry provocateur, he has been voted as the #1 Voice in Marketing on LinkedIn globally, with over 700,000 followers; Business Insider named him one of 30 people to follow on Twitter, and Fast Company has called him a "must-follow." 


Tom is a founding member of Wharton's Future of Advertising board, and currently sits on the World Economic Forum's Future of Work board. He runs Interesting Speakers, a passion project connecting organizers with remarkable talent around the world, and Interesting People in Interesting Times, a series of talks which has featured Maria Konnikova, Ellen Ullman, Scott Galloway, Jaron Lanier, Andrew Yang, and more. He resides in New York.

Consulting is rather broken, it’s based on timeless “best practice”, which is just what everyone else has been doing for years. It’s drawn out to take longer, and to make money from the diagnosis, the ideation and then from the implementation. It’s based on the company’s needs, not the consumers, rooted in management theory and not imagination. It’s confined by technology, not expanded by possibilities.


Tom Goodwin works in a number of ways with a variety of audacious and ambitious senior leaders and companies. 


Roles vary from long term board advisory positions to one off workshops, to short sprint like projects to long term ongoing assignments.


Tom has set up “All We Have Is Now” as an insurgent  vehicle for profound, imaginative change, not the sanitized merchandizing of what appears to be creativity or collaboration.


Every business challenge and opportunity is different, so teams vary from just Tom, to a wide range of hand picked experts from around the world who share common principles.
