Douglas Rushkoff has spent his prolific career thinking about how new media and technology are impacting culture, business, and the economy. Named one of the world’s 10 most influential thinkers by MIT, Rushkoff has made and starred in four breakthrough PBS Frontline documentaries including Merchants of Cool, The Persuaders, and Generation like. He has also written over 20 bestselling books—including Team Human, Present Shock, Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus, and the hilarious new Survival of the Richest: Escape Fantasies of the Tech Billionaires. He’s coined concepts such as “viral media,” “social currency,” and “digital natives.” His talks are a culmination of his pioneering work, and an infallible source of what’s to come.

Douglas Rushkoff speaks to conferences, companies, organizations, universities and communities around the world. His presentations are at once inspiring and challenging, entertaining and thought-provoking. He invariably receives highest evaluations from audiences, and leaves them with both actionable takeaways and food for thought for months or even years to come. To experience Rushkoff live is to engage with one of the world’s great thinkers, in person.
