What I Like to talk About

Radical changes are ahead. Unprecedented technology innovation, Artificial Intelligence, self driving cars, cryptocurrency and blockchain, behavior-based marketing, predictive computing, they all point to a revolution in how we do business and how we live our lives. Couple that with the enormous growth of US and global markets that are bursting at the seams and you have a once in a century opportunity, but only if you also understand the challenges ahead; technical, cultural, organizational, social, and political challenges that will disrupt nearly every framework of the industrial era.

That disruption, innovation, and opportunity is the focus of my latest keynotes. I've spent the last four years working with our researchers at Delphi to determine the trends and trajectories that are driving this change. In my upcoming book, Revealing The Invisible (June 2018) I look at the most transformative technologies and businesses that are driving all of this change. 

Millennials & Generation Z

Digital Innovation

Blockchain & Cryptocurrency

Artificial Intelligence

Autonomous Devices/Cars


Digital Transformation

The Future of Business

Leading Digital Organizations

Behavioral Marketing

These are some of the hottest topics today for both organizations and individuals. Yet, they are shrouded in jargon, black boxes, and technospeak. My objective is simple, make them understandable in a context that will allow people to take advantage of them.  

My Background

Tom Koulopoulos is acknowledged as one of the industry’s leading futurists. He is the author of ten books and founder of Delphi Group, a 25-year-old Boston-based think tank, which was named one of the fastest growing private companies in the US by Inc. Magazine. Delphi provides advice on innovation practices and methods to Global 2000 organizations and government agencies. Tom is also a columnist for, an adjunct professor at Boston University Graduate School of Management, an Executive in Residence at Bentley University, the past Executive Director of the Babson College Center for Business Innovation, and past Executive Director of the Perot Systems Innovation Lab, which was acquired in 2009 by Dell Computer.

Named one of the industry’s most influential consultants by InformationWeek magazine, his articles and market insights appear frequently in national and international print and broadcast media such as BusinessWeek, the Wall Street JournalForbesThe Economist, CNBC, CNN and NPR. Geoff James of CBS Interactive Media called Tom “one of the truly deep thinkers in the arena of technology and culture.” named Tom one of its Business Visionaries with “an incisive view of world trade…”

Mr. Koulopoulos’ ten books include his most recent, The Gen Z Effect; Cloud Surfing; The Innovation Zone; and Corporate Instinct

His work has been praised by luminaries such as Peter Drucker and Tom Peters who called his writing “a brilliant vision of where we must take our enterprises to survive and thrive.” And according to the late Peter Drucker, Tom’s writing “makes you question not only the way you run your business but the way you run yourself.”


Tom was fantastic onstage and a complete professional to work with from beginning to end. Our participants ranked him as one of their favorite speakers of the entire event, and we even slotted him in the undesirable position of closing out the day. I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for a dynamic speaker to not only put on a fantastic performance, but also to educate their audience on the workforce trends we all need to be prepared for. - Veronica Gage - Director, Brand Activation, Cybereason

I’ve been producing meetings for over twenty years, and I’ve never had the pleasure of working with a more professional, flexible and accommodating keynote speaker than Tom Koulopoulos.  His ability to adapt his presentation to my client’s needs, including significant pre-event research and collaboration was extraordinary, and his engaging performance style is strictly top-tier, clearly communicating complex information in an easily understood manner.  If you ever have an opportunity to work with Tom, jump at it!  You won’t be disappointed. - Kevin Cummiskey, Producer/Creative Director, Lehrhoff Productions
