  3. 3. “We cannot move forward without being aggressive with regards to our digital attitudes, aptitudes, and spending.” #FutureOfIT - Thornton May, Futurist, Educator, and Author
  4. 4. “We now need to start building businesses around the customer as opposed to our own convenience. It requires a very substantial change. A change, I would say, so extreme that you may as well forget it and actually create a 2.0 version of your business.” #FutureOfIT - Ade McCormack, Near Futurist, Digital Strategist, Keynote Speaker, and Author
  5. 5. “Leaders are going to have to determine what work is going to be done by machines and what work is going to be done by humans, and then how do we make sure that we have the humans to get that work done.” #FutureOfIT - Thornton May, Futurist, Educator, and Author
  6. 6. “In the digital economy, if you’re a human, and you’re employed by an organization, you will be a creative, because everything else will be done by technology. So the next generation of worker or even the current generation of worker needs to recognize that their value proposition is what they can do that technology itself cannot do.” #FutureOfIT - Ade McCormack, Near Futurist, Digital Strategist, Keynote Speaker, and Author
  7. 7. “Unless there’s a lesser creativity in what you do then you will be replaced by technology. That’s just a hard reality, and it faces everybody. Some of us will capitalize on it, and some of us will fall under the digital steamroller.” #FutureOfIT - Ade McCormack, Near Futurist, Digital Strategist, Keynote Speaker, and Author
  8. 8. “It used to be man versus machine, now it is man is machine. Our species is changing and evolving as well as heading towards, dare I say, singularity.” #FutureOfIT - Thornton May, Futurist, educator, and author
  9. 9. “We’re going to see some very interesting scenarios as people and robots start to work side by side. And we’re from a generation that just could not anticipate this, and it’s already happening.” #FutureOfIT - Ade McCormack, Near Futurist, Digital Strategist, Keynote Speaker, and Author
  10. 10. “You shouldn’t be surprised by tech. We know what’s coming. So as a futurist, there’s no excuse for not dipping your bucket in the value stream which is the stream of technology coming our way and actually doing something for our customers and for our stakeholders.” #FutureOfIT - Thornton May, Futurist, educator, and author
