Chief Envisioning Officer, The Envisioners
For the last three decades Dave Coplin has been at the cutting edge of some of the world’s largest technology companies focused on the intersection of our society and modern technology.
Formerly Chief Envisioning Officer for Microsoft UK, he has written two books, worked all over the world with organisations big and small, individuals, governments and government agencies, and presented successful stage shows that open eyes and minds - all with the goal of demystifying technology and championing it as a positive transformation in our society.
Now independent, he has a list of clients from around the world and has worked with organisations in every sector and almost every industry. From Facebook, Google and Microsoft through to Bank of America, Barclays, Ernst Young, and Vodafone as well as leading public sector and academic institutions such as the UK Parliament, Crown Prosecution Service, as well as Cambridge and Oxford Universities, Dave is engaged at the highest levels to help inspire and drive technology enabled transformation.
Dave is an established author on topics surrounding the future of work and our relationship with technology. His first book: “Business Reimagined”, provided a view of a new working environment based on collaborative and flexible working (almost 10 years before the pandemic made it necessary). His second book, “The Rise of the Humans”, provides a further call to action for both individuals and organisations to rise up and take back control of the potential that technology offers our society.
Dave is a recognised authority in the industry on a broad range of topics and is often sought to provide advice and guidance to UK government on policy issues such as Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, as well as being a regular contributor both here in the UK and around the world with media talking about everything from the future of work, the future of education, privacy and on-line safety, right through to big data and the impact of transformational technologies like Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence.
