Speaker Bio

Throughout his career, Colin Iles has focused on designing and implementing solutions that bring positive benefits to the communities and stakeholders the organisations serve.

His specific focus in his own words…“Most organisations develop and execute strategies that are no longer appropriate to deal with the existential threats that disruptive technologies bring. It’s incredibly satisfying working with today’s leaders to design models that allow them to adapt and win in this exponentially changing world.”

Whether presenting, facilitating or consulting, Colin mixes his professional experiences with humour, deep research and razor-sharp intellect to ensure his audiences stretch their thinking as to where the real threats lie, and whether their organisation, their division or their teams are equipped to deal with these threats.

Before setting up his own innovation consultancy, Colin was held various Managing Director roles at Barclays and Standard Bank, founded the award-winning Equinox Leadership Centre and helped instigate the creation of The African Institute of Financial Markets Risk Management at UCT.

Keynotes that challenge your thinking
If you simply want to learn more about exponential technologies then Google is your friend.

If, on the other hand, you want an interactive, tailored keynote, that will be provocative, humorous and will challenge your audience to consider how they must think differently to survive in an exponential world, then let’s connect.

Workshops that challenge your approach
The business models that were critical to your organisation's success, are now becoming your biggest threat.

Colin offers a range of leadership workshops which explore the impact of exponential technologies on organisational processes, introduces models that the fastest growing companies in the world are using and shows you and your teams practical steps that can be taken immediately to experiment with these new ideas.

All workshops can be run online for groups of 10 and upwards.
