Quick Quote

Practical Futurist and Former IBM Global Managing Partner, Andrew Grill is a popular and sought-after keynote speaker and trusted board-level technology adviser. 

Unlike traditional Futurists who paint a picture of the future in 10, 20 or even 50 years’ time, Andrew delivers practical and immediately actionable insights in every session.

100% digital, Andrew believes that “to get digital you need to be digital” and his engaging keynotes provide actionable insights on how to achieve corporate goals on a global and long-lasting scale.

Andrew has spoken in over 40 countries worldwide. Recent clients include senior executives from DHL, Nike, Nestle, Barclays, Euler Hermes, Mars, Vodafone, Arriva, Johnson Matthey, Taylor Wessing, Bunzl, De Beers, Sanofi, NHS, Thomson Reuters, Royal London, ANZ, KPMG, Schroders, Mercer, British Airways, Finnair, UK Government, Westpac, Qantas, Aon, American Airlines, and Shell.

He also delivers workshops and provides strategic advice at the C-suite and Board levels.

Andrew carefully crafts every keynote with his audience in mind. Some of his distinctive keynotes include:

  • Disrupt or Be Disrupted – Digital disruption and what it means for you and your business.
  • AI and The Future of Work – How you and your employees can adapt to the coming changes in the nature of work in the digital age.
  • Building a Digital-Proof Business – How the right mix of technology & culture will defend the threat of disruption.
  • Digital Diversity and Brand Advocates – Why you need digital practitioners on your board, and how your best advocates are already on the payroll.
  • Rising Above the Noise – How to stand out in the digital world.

Andrew’s first-hand experience of the digital world and his in-depth understanding of new technologies spans three decades and can be traced back to the early 1980’s when he found himself online via bulletin boards, the precursor to email. His early training and formal qualifications as an engineer ensure that he is up to date with the latest technologies and can confidently present complex concepts in a business-friendly way to any audience.

His experience running 6 high-tech start-ups over a 12-year period in the US, UK and Australia means that he not only “thinks like a start-up” but can provide strategic and actionable advice for companies on how to think and act in an agile way.

Quick quote Andrew Grill

Andrew was fantastic to work with – articulate, insightful, adaptable, and full of energy. Andrew listened to and hit the brief 100%. We would not hesitate to use him again for this type of event. What was also useful was Andrew’s willingness to help promote the event on social media, which really helped drive the registrations. He’s also a fun bloke to have a beer with. Furthermore, Raise the Bar have been exemplary throughout this process. I will be sending a glowing recommendation to our Head of Events after the roadshows have concluded to suggest using you in the future as our go-to speaker agency.
