A few of his past speaking engagements are below:

Andre believes that as a society, economy and individuals we are faced with the most significant paradigm shift since the beginning of our existence. And we are not talking about politics, culture or other important aspects of our society. We are talking about fundamental shifts to our way of living and working – technology, globalization, our environment – all of them have achieved a “speed of acceleration” (thank you Thomas Friedman) that leaves our petty mortal human brains dead in the dust.

The way you, I and everybody else work today is inadequate and unsustainable. Yes, no matter your industry or function, if you don’t fundamentally change the way you understand business, manage your operations and get your work done, you will become obsolete by 2025.

Quantum Computing, a transformative technology, is coming to market fast. QIS is challenging to experts to understand and explain, yet, if you and I, mere business folks, fail to grasp it, we will not be able to compete.
