PODCAST

EPISODE 1: #RESISTTHEUSUAL WITH PAUL ARMSTRONG. 

ON PAUL: a leading strategist, author and speaker on the future of technology, disruption anything and everything to do with future. He runs the technology advisory HERE/FORTH where he helps clients including PwC, Coca-Cola, O2 and more to understand trends and how to sensibly apply emerging technologies strategically.  This smart cookie currently writes for a number of publications, including Forbes, Reuters, Cool Hunting, Evening Standard and Short List. He also wrote a book: ‘Disruptive Technologies’, and launched TNN (The New Normal) which we help with: a private community and online resource/hub (powered by Slack) on all things future, with amazing speakers each month. More on Paul here.

WHY PAUL: you want to know him, talk to him, get him a coffee. He's a smart cookie, works fast, delivers faster. Says as it is, doesn't sugarcoat it. He talks extremely fast, so you better have an espresso when talking to Paul. He's also a good egg and funnier than he thinks. It's a pleasure to have him as our first guest.

I love the idea that I have no idea what Natalia wants me to do.

I love Natalia’ s creativity so I think the concept of speaking on the spot is quite brilliant. As a speaker anyway I like being put on the spot and having to think what I’m going to say. I’m actually quite uncertain, curious and a little bit scared...that’s why I like it.
