Simon Moores Keynote Speaker

In a world of rapid technological innovation, digital strategist and security futurist Dr. Moores provides fascinating insights into the future of business as a keynote speaker. Through his expertise and original thinking around hot tech topics, Simon shines light on potential implications for the market and society as a whole.

As security futurist and risk consultant he uses his expertise in social media, disruptive technologies, Big Data and cyber security to forecast how emerging trends will shape the future of business.

A respected thought leader in tech and an international keynote speaker, Simon advises government, companies and the media as Managing Director of Zentelligence (Research) Ltd, whose client and partner list boasts Microsoft, Unisys, Symantec, British and foreign parliamentary bodies.

The digital strategist is particularly well-recognised for his work on eGovernment, cyber-risk, and online espionage; serving as Programme Director and Chair of the annual international eCrime Congress, Simon works towards a safer Internet for everyone by building public awareness and bringing together key players in the high tech security world.

The former Chief Executive and Chairman of The Research Group has chaired and keynoted at numerous forums and conferences across the globe including: Visa’s annual Payment Card Industry (PCI/DSS) Europe; the Emirates Forum in Dubai; and the Middle-east e-Government conference; the Irish Software Industry’s annual conference in Dublin; IDG Europe’s security conference in Milan; and the Ministry of Justice’s conference in London.

He is Vice Chairman of the Conservative Technology Forum, serves as a conference Chair of the UK Internet Policy Forum, is co-author of the Conservative Party’s ‘Digital Plan for Britain’, and is director of the centre-right open market policy ‘think tank’, Aediles.

As well as appearing on numerous TV and radio outlets, such as Channel 4, ITV, CNN, CNBC and Bloomberg, the former columnist for Silicon.Com and Computer Weekly has made frequent contributions to a number of leading publications in the IT industry, as well as national and international press: including The Guardian, eGov monitor, The Economist, The New Statesman and The Observer, and The Saudi Economic Review.

He is also a visiting lecturer in the Applied Sciences & Computing department at Canterbury Christ Church University.

Foreseeing a burning need for business models to keep up as technology, platforms, and data evolve at smoke-producing speed, Simon makes audiences question whether this is the end of the market and society as we know it.
