Future of Travel, Tourism, Corporate Travel, Hospitality - keynote speaker for American Express

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Travel Keynotes, Transport, Tourism

Here is a video of the keynote I gave on the future of travel for American Express in Moscow.  I gave a keynote on the same topic a couple of years earlier and the audience loved it so much that they asked me to return.

To make the point that video conferencing is a terrible experience compared to breathing the same air, being in the same room, they asked me to start my keynote by video link, from another room, and then walk right onto the platform, when talking about video calls and their impact on business travel.

So I recommend that you start the video around 2 minutes in - and enjoy your journey into the future....
