He is recognized globally for his unique ability to accurately predict future digital trends and provide the logic behind why they will alter the current status quo.
Scott has the ability to entertain, inspire and enlighten audiences while also translating difficult to understand technology topics. He is known for architecting each presentation specifically for the audience, and with the very latest information available. Topics include content such as the importance of organizational digital maturity, leading through the Digital Transformation, cybersecurity, machine intelligence, data intelligence, trendspotting, digital marketing, and best practices for digital governance.
He is equally adept at giving large stage keynotes, speaking to small boards of directors, facilitating half and full day workshops, and doing break-out sessions. His topics often create many questions and he enjoys being interactive with audiences when appropriate. The best measure of his ability to inspire and inform audiences is the high percentage of speaking clients who bring him back for follow on work with their audiences.

He is not just an observer of digital trends, he has routinely invested in his future visions with a great track record of success.

He works with senior executives in organizations ranging from the Fortune 500 to universities, nonprofits, and countless professional associations and coalitions. As a technology entrepreneur, he also continually works in the trenches of building his own companies.

TriCorps Technologies represents a merger between Future Point of View, a digital strategy firm Scott founded in 2007, and TriCorps Cybersecurity, a venture he co-founded in 2015.
In 1999, Scott Klososky sold his company webcasts.com for $115 million. Webcasts.com, an early producer of webcasted media ranging from corporate and government communications to sporting events and entertainment, represented a career spent on the bleeding edge of technology.

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 a diary of his years as the Chief of Staff to President Nixon, which was a bestseller (Putnam Publishing), and involved Sony Interactive in the release of a book companion CD-ROM.

Thriving in the Digital Transformation Leading Through Disruption
In today’s business environment, all leaders in every organization is currently facing the monumental task of maturing their tools, processes, and people in a world dominated by technology. Today, the speed at which this is happening is also very important. The digital and financial health of every organization is based on how well and how fast this transformation occurs. In a thought-provoking and inspiring presentation, Scott walks you through the digital transformation and its formidable impact on your industry. Scott considers technologies that are currently impacting your industry, including the Internet of Things, automation, wearable devices, cashless society, hyperpersonalization, cybersecurity, and much more. He peppers this talk with real world examples of organizations that have navigated the digital transformation successfully and those who have not. Also, he will discuss how fast all of this is happening. Faster than your competition? How do we measure that? He also uses interesting and humorous anecdotes from his work as a CEO, technologist, and consultant to provide illustrations of the step’s leaders must take to pilot their organizations through a world that is evolving at unprecedented speeds.
Customer Experience: Selling in a Hyper-Personalized World
What if you knew exactly what each of your constituents (customers, members, patients, vendors, employees etc) REALLY wanted? Would that help you develop customer loyalty? If you could anticipate what each person wanted from you before they told you, how would knowing that change your approach? Through use of big data and digital connections, you can individualize relationships with any client or prospect you value. A hot topic in marketing today is “hyper-personalization.” This is the process of gathering a deep level of information on your constituents and then using that information to create loyal and valued relationships. This goes way beyond installing a CRM system! Scott has been on the vanguard of digital marketing techniques since digital marketing was born. In this session, he combines his custom knowledge of your industry and digital marketing savvy to show attendees several new methods for driving business. This includes using the process of “mapping the customer journey” to detail every touchpoint in relationships and how either a human or technology connection can be used to create a fantastic experience. As a special bonus, Scott can provide sample templates and tools that are used to complete these processes, so attendees can create a strategic plan for their organization.
The Future of Cybersecurity: “Protecting Ourselves in an Increasingly Connected World”
The field of cybersecurity will only grow in its impact on people, organizations and our world. What will the future bring? In this presentation, Scott looks forward to tackling some of the challenges we will soon face in cyberspace. Will we continue to witness a rise of surveillance on each of us, constant threats of digital attacks from state-sponsored actors, people from across the globe with the ability to seize control of our vehicles, our wearable devices, and our smart homes, are you implementing Integrated Security? These are some of the important topics that will be addressed in this presentation. Scott is recognized for his unique future vision and his ability to extrapolate technology trends that will influence our world. In this program, he points this capability toward the world of cybersecurity to explain why it will become one of the most critical elements of our future.
Trends, Technology and Taking the Lead
Technology isn't simply a tool. In the right hands, Technology can almost be magical in its ability to give us new capabilities. As a leader, it is critical that you understand how technology can be fully leveraged in order to drive top-line revenues, or lower bottom-line costs. Scott will discuss practical technology tools and concepts that can be used as soon as you get back to the office. With Scott’s fast-paced and entertaining style, he will create context for many of the words and concepts that you have heard about but couldn’t quite apply. Many people talk about the Digital Transformation and few people really can describe what it is and how it is changing the world, and the economy. It is important for people in the technology industry to have the 30,000 ft view of the transformation so they can make solid design decisions, and even career choices. Also, so you are moving through digital transformation – are you moving fast enough? Scott Klososky speaks all over the world on how the impact the Digital Transformation is having on the human race, as well as how organizations go to market. His presentation will focus on subjects such as how technology is integrating into humanity, machine intelligence, cybersecurity, and the critical need to be able to look over the horizon accurately.
The Technology Integration of Humanity
A recent study shows the average age a child first sees porn is eight years old. Pause for a beat and consider the impact of that statement and know that there are many more startling facts that surround the way technology is integrating into every aspect of our personal and professional lives. Among the millions of utopian joys gained from the internet we also find ourselves enduring much that is dystopian. The concepts discussed in Scott’s most recent book, Did God Create the Internet? The Impact of Technology on Humanity, are the backbone of this thought-leading keynote. One of the most speculated questions people (especially parents) have about technology is how it will impact us as a species over time. Will all these new digital tools be good or bad for us as a species? What is technology doing to us today? Are we going to be happier? Work longer and harder, or less? Will we have less privacy? Will younger generations lose capabilities that older generations had, or will our young people be much more powerful than their predecessors? Scott weaves together technology and philosophy into a thought-provoking talk that is sure to be mind expanding. There is a lot of flexibility to deliver content that is futuristic or relevant today. The tone can be conversational and filled with stories, or a serious call to action to make better decisions about boundaries with digital tools. (Despite the title of Scott’s book, this talk is not religious in nature.)
Leadership: 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. * Best Audience - This session is specifically targeted at the C-Suite and executives. It is best delivered to high level people that are open to learning new ways of leading, and that understand that they must continue to grow in order to be effective leaders. * Position in the Event - This keynote can be presented anywhere in a conference because it can be easily adjusted to be more entertaining, or inspirational for an opening session or closing session. It can also just be one of the middle keynotes and be used as useful and practical content to create meaningful value to executives seeking enrichment. It is best delivered for at least one hour, and not more than ninety minutes.
