Chief Envisioning Officer, The Envisioners
Dave Coplin helps organisations and individuals to see the full potential that technology offers of a modern, digital society. He focuses not on the technology itself, but on the humans who use it.
Dave’s mission is to make people reconsider their relationship with technology and how it can help them work smarter, not harder.
With over 25 years in the technology industry and, most recently, working across Microsoft’s UK business to orchestrate and implement an integrated “thought leadership” strategy that addressed Microsoft’s potential with UK government, customers and consumers, Dave is at the forefront of conversations around how individuals and organisations can benefit from the transformational potential that technology offers, rather than simply using it to do the same things, but only slightly better.
One of the most influential people in the digital industry, he was nominated as one of the Drum’s Digerati (2013, 2014) BIMA’s Hot 100 (2013) and the Digital Marketing Show’s “Class of 2014”.
Dave is an authority in the industry, on a broad range of topics and a regular contributor in UK and Pan-EMEA media including the BBC, The Telegraph and The Guardian on topics from the future of education, privacy and on-line safety, right through to the Big Data rock stars and the impact of Machine Learning.
