About Scott Klososky - Speaker on Technology and Trends in Leadership and Marketing:
Scott Klososky, a former CEO of three successful start-up companies, has no fear about shaking up the status quo around the way we build teams and set powerful directions. It is rare to find someone that has Scott's combination of both
over the horizon vision, and
in the trenches experience. A thought leader that specializes in helping leaders see the world in new ways, Scott has used innovation, velocity, and future vision to build his own companies, and to advise clients. Scott is one of very few people that can translate where technology and trends are going in the realm of leadership and marketing with a high level of flair. He is about transforming, not informing.
His unique perspectives on technology, business culture, and the future allows him to travel the globe as a speaker and consultant, working with senior executives in organizations ranging from Fortune 500 corporations to universities and nonprofits. Including: Cisco, Newell Rubbermaid, Lockheed Martin, Ebay, Volvo, The Hartford, Great Clips, Marriott, Sterling Commerce, AGCO Corporation and national associations such as: International Franchise Association, Korean Ministry of Information, Mortgage Bankers Association, American Payroll Association, Association of Equipment Manufacturers.
Currently he serves as the founder and the Chairman of the Board of Alkami Technology, his latest technology startup. Alkami has developed a second generation online banking platform that provides many new features that do not exist today in current online banking systems. It is a privately-owned software company focused on providing online account management solutions to the financial services industry. He also consults with many organizations on how to integrate social technologies into their organization's strategic direction as well as how to improve their utilization of technology as a tool.
Scott hit the ground running fresh out of high school, where his job as a delivery boy was a spring board into the world of technology. He became division head of computer sales, and then purchased that division as his own company. It was eventually built into a twelve store operation in three states.
His next endeavor was as Founder and CEO of Paragraph, Inc., a Soviet/American joint venture founded in 1988, despite international tensions. Half of the company was sold to Silicon Graphics and the other half is still expanding today (Parascript, Inc.). Scott then collaborated with H.R. Haldeman to publish his diaries of his years as an aide to President Nixon, which was a bestseller (Putnam Publishing) and involving Sony Interactive in the release of a companion CD-ROM.
The evolving internet ushered in a world of opportunity for inspiring pioneers, and Scott was not left behind. He was Founder and CEO of webcasts.com, an early producer of webcasted media ranging from corporate and government communications, to sporting events and entertainment. His expertise in leadership and his creative approach to business direction, inspired Critical Technologies to hire him as a turnaround CEO, where he completely rebuilt the underlying products and brought the company to profitability. Today, Scott shares his unique perspectives on technology, business culture, and the future, with audiences and organizations all over the globe.
Scott is the author of three books: The Velocity Manifesto: Harnessing Technology, Vision and Culture to future proof your organization (2011), where three new categories of talents are demystified for leaders that desire to stay relevant, Enterprise Social Technologies: Helping Organizations Harness the Power of Social Media, Social Networking, Social Relevancy (2011), and Manager's Guide to Social Media (2010), which gives managers a roadmap for implementing and using social tools in order to improve productivity and results.
What Scott Klososky Talks About:
Social Technologies (Social Media, Social Networking and Social Relevance)
SocialTech is the hottest trend in technology at the moment. Leaders are trying to figure out how to harness this powerful new suite of tools. In this presentation, Scott gives a top to bottom tutorial on the best practices for implementing a SocialTech strategy with impact. It is important to note that this is not a session that teaches best practices for using LinkedIn or Facebook. This is a robust keynote backed by strong graphical explanations of why SocialTech matters, and how it is changing the sales process, customer service and marketing. Areas specifically covered are subjects like online reputation management, crowdsourcing, building rivers of knowledge, and becoming industry experts.
Trends, Technology and Taking the Lead
Technology is simply a tool, but in the right hands, it can almost be magical in its ability to give us new capabilities. For this reason, it is critical to understand how technology can be fully leveraged in order to drive top-line revenues, or lower bottom-line costs. This is a talk that is both thought provoking and practical. Scott combines highlighting a few new trends that people might be aware of, and adds a few over the horizon trends that are completely new. To this Scott adds the delivery of practical technology tools, or concepts that can be used as soon the attendees get back to the office. In the end with a fast paced and entertaining style, Scott creates context for many of the words and concepts that they have heard about but cannot really apply just yet.
The Technology Integration of Man
As human beings, we are in the middle of an era where technology is systematically integrating more and more into our lives. The role that technology is now playing has a huge impact on our quality of life, and our careers. The impact of technology over the next 50 years and how it will integrate into our lives and even into our bodies will be staggering. This presentation examines ten steps in which technology will integrate into our lives. Executives will be able to take the futuristic views and apply them to their current strategies.
Did God Invent the Internet?
One of the most speculated questions people (especially parents) have about technology is how it will impact us as a human race. Will all these new digital tools be good or bad for us over time? What is it doing to us today? This is also a very thought leading speech meant to get people thinking big thoughts, such as, what will happen to the coming generations as they are augmented heavily with technologies their parents did not grow up with. How will organizations change as they become more virtualized and people communicate more and more through, and with, technology?
A Technology Infused Leader
There are thousands of leadership books out on the market, and what all of them seem to be missing is any discussion of what a leader now needs to know about technology in order to be effective going forward. We have a plethora of Baby Boomer and Traditional generation leaders that did not grow up with technology and really have no idea how to leverage it or manage the people that do. This talk is a very practical discussion of a handful of new concepts and ideas for what a leader now must be able to do well in order to lead effectively in the information age. This includes a better ability to see into the future, leverage technology holistically as if it were digital plumbing, and mature the institutional culture of the organization so that the younger technology savvy generations can prosper.
