Time for another #AskTheActionableFuturist question – this time about data privacy.

The question from audience member Colleen Schooling at the CPA Australia CPA Congress was “I think my phone is listening to me … will we ever be able to go off the grid?”

This is a great question and one I get asked a lot at conferences.

In my 3-minute answer below, I touch on the need for consumers to become more empowered and understand that our personal data has real value, and treat it as such.

As marketers and business people, we need to treat consumer data with the same respect that we treat our own personal data.\

With weekly data breaches and Facebook constantly in the news, consumer trust is being rapidly eroded.

This video is an example of how as the Actionable Futurist I can add real value to your next event. I present at senior management meetings, large conference keynotes, internal meetings, customer events and intimate C-suite briefings around the world.

If you need someone for your next event that is up to date on all the latest trends and can translate this to a business audience & answer any questions delegates ask, then I invite you to have a look at a list of my clients & replays of talks on a range of subjects.
