Innovation Keynote Speaker Seth Shapiro Helps Tomorrow’s Leaders Innovate in the Digital Age

Digital is the most transformational development in the history of business—more important than the printing press. It’s transformed what people buy, how they buy, and the ways businesses reach customers. This isn’t just true for some businesses —it’s true for all businesses.

And that’s what makes innovation speaker Seth Shapiro’s message so relevant—and essential—to business audiences worldwide.

Seth isn’t a futurist who opines from a distance: he’s a proven operator and advisor, with twenty years of first-hand experience in transformational business. As an innovation keynote speaker, he delivers the insights businesses need to survive and thrive in the ever-changing digital landscape.
