Vito's keynotes combine the depth of science and the magic of entertainment. His keynotes are founded on a solid scientific approach, include the unveiling of new technologies, and reveal a detailed forecasting of medium-term business trends. His background as United Nation's IMI UNESCO Executive Director and university professor is harmoniously paired with his showmanship style to create memorable storytelling using custom films on theatrical screens, and the occasional coups de theatre, to show us how our lives will change in the next 5 to 15 years. Tailored to each individual event, because no two keynotes are alike, he recounts the stories of evolution of individual business segments, uncovers the future way of working in those industries, as well as the future competition in those markets. Telling stories of individuals responsible for pivotal moments throughout history while echoing the works of artists, writers, and philosophers, all narrated as an enchanting tale of the never-ending challenge of human civilization. Now throw in some metaphors, paradoxes, and jokes...a lot of jokes. Live interactions with the audience to sprinkle in extemporaneous brainstorming, some blitz surveys, Q&A's, and even dancing. Add a dash of live tweets to and from the people in the room, tweeting infographics and receiving back comments in real time.
