This is my first newsletter since spending almost 3 months in South East Asia developing business connections, speaking at a number of conferences and running a Gamification workshop. The time away from the UK’s green and pleasant land has given me time to reflect on the gathering pace of disruptive technologies and their likely impact on business and society. It is also exactly one year since I embarked on exploring the potential of Gamification and enabling technologies for improving my wellbeing and general health and I am proud to say that I met my daily target of 10,000 steps (approx. 5 miles) every single one of the last 365 days. The impact on my weight and wellbeing has far exceeded my expectations and has given me both a platform and a motivation for some ambitious plans to build strategic partnerships with key players to have a transformational impact on global health issues like obesity and diabetes. I am looking to work with individuals and organisations who share my passion and vision for empowering people to be able to take responsibility for and control of their health and wellbeing.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be involved in this initiative.
In my first newsletter of 2014, I predicted that this would be the start of rapid and transformational disruptions in business and society triggered by technology developments in areas like the internet of things, big data analytics, cloud computing, mobile and visualisation technologies. Six months on, I am more convinced than ever that we are in for the ride of our lives with innovations and new business models abounding. I hope you will stick with me for the journey.
