Speaker References

Director, Corporate Communications & Integrated Marketing, Navigant

[Erica’s] talk was a hit. It really had our attendees thinking about the many possibilities ahead, and the talk sent them off to their professional development sessions with “eyes wide open”. [She] had a great command of the content and the research-based information earned our audience’s respect and attention right from the start. It worked out splendidly!

President, Manning & Associates

Erica came beautifully prepared and discussed the importance of examining topics from a fresh and innovative perspective. She was creative, articulate, astute and was able to give the students examples that they could readily relate to. I would definitely use Erica again.

Coordinator of Member Services, INPACT Americas (Int’l Alliance of Professional Accountants)

[Erica’s] lively, engaging delivery was a great way to energize our first session.

Areas of Focus:

The Metaspace Economy: Emerging Trends

This builds upon the idea that we are currently undergoing a fundamental transformation and restructuring of the global economy. The emergence of a new economic model (which we refer to as The Metaspace Economy) is being catapulted by the confluence of disruptive technologies. By understanding the past, only then can we truly understand WHY the future is unfolding in the way that it is and ushering in a world characterized by greater boundarylessness.


Technological advancements are leading to a world of “templosion” – The Future Hunters’ term to describe the idea that very large things are now happening in shorter periods of time. While change is a constant, the story today is about the pace of change, which is rapidly speeding up and causing major disruptions to happen faster than ever before. This is influencing everything from generational compression to the truncation of strategic and financial planning cycles. It is also leading to the creation of greater business efficiencies through the rapid rise of automation and artificial intelligence (AI).

Thinking Technologies

The techniques that help you think about the future differently. This instructs audiences to challenge (and ultimately change) their way of thinking about future trends and how best to develop actionable strategies to capitalize on those trends. This includes real-world, practical examples of each of the thinking technologies.
