The CLO & Talent Management Forum

HomeSeptember ConferenceApril ConferenceDelegatesSuppliersVideoUpdatesVenue

The CLO & Talent Management Forum's conference program provides senior L&D professionals access to new ideas, solutions and innovations to help take their departments and companies forward. The agenda is pitched at a high level and we present new case studies and new thought leaders each year.

Keynote and seminar sessions give a high-level view of the L&D industry, offering predictions and insights to help delegates form - and implement - strategies. The interactive workshops and discussion groups complement the larger sessions by drilling down into specific issues, allowing delegates to share their collective experiences and to learn how their peers are dealing with similar situations.

    Michael Roger, Futurist, Author and Technology Pioneer

    Topic Description Coming Soon

    Michael Rogers is an internationally-known futurist, author, speaker and technology pioneer who most recently served as futurist-in-residence for The New York Times. He also writes the popular Practical Futurist column for MSNBC and is a best-selling novelist whose fiction explores the human impact of technology.

    Michael is a different kind of futurist—one who combines real business experience with technology skills. Add to that the keen eye of an award-winning investigative journalist and the storytelling skill of a novelist, and you have The Practical Futurist.

    Michael Rogers also speaks to audiences worldwide and is a regular guest on radio and television, known for his use of stories and humor to create an optimistic and inspirational view of future challenges.

    His consultancy has worked with companies ranging from FedEx, Boeing and NBC Universal to Microsoft, Pfizer and Siemens, focusing on how companies can think about the future in useful ways.

    Rogers earned degrees in Physics and Creative Writing at Stanford University, with additional studies in finance and management at the Stanford Business School Executive Program.

    Michael Rogers began his career as a writer for Rolling Stone magazine. He co-founded Outside magazine and then launched Newsweek’s technology column, winning numerous journalism awards. For ten years he was vice president of The Washington Post Company’s new media division, leading both the newspaper and Newsweek into the new century and earning patents for multimedia technology. He is also a bestselling novelist whose books have been published worldwide, chosen for the Book-of-the-Month club and optioned for film.

    Michael is a dynamic speaker who delivers an entertaining and common-sense vision of change for business and individuals, blending technology, economics, demographics, culture and human nature.

    He lives in New York City and is currently working on book and television projects.
