Key Points to Consider
Lectures on the Future
William Knoke is well suited as a keynote speaker to open
your convention for the following
- Noted Authority and Futurist. Knoke is
author of the international bestseller Bold New
World: The Essential Roadmap to the 21st Century, now
translated into ten languages. He has been a featured guest on scores
of radio and television programs (such as CNN),
and featured in numerous published articles
including in the Los Angeles Times,
Wall Street Journal, Newsweek
- Experienced Keynote Speaker. Knoke has
been a featured speaker to corporations and
user groups all over the world to AT&T, IBM, Cap Gemini, Arthur Andersen,
and others. In most cases, he is the keynote speaker opening the
convention on Day One.
- Knowledge Depth. Knoke holds degrees from
Stanford University, BA Economics (cum laude) and Harvard Business
School (MBA). As the President and founder of Harvard Capital Group,
Mr. Knoke has considerable experience in the
banking industry, and was the lead analyst on one of the top ten world banks
seeking acquisitions into the lucrative U.S. market.
- Customized. Knoke does not deliver one
formulaic lecture to all audiences, but tailors his presentation according
to the objectives of convention organizers. Typically he builds
a foundation upon which the other convention venues may comfortably sit,
thereby helping to build a singular theme for the entire conference.
- Presentation Style. Knoke usually
prepares graphic-intensive PowerPoint slides to punctuate main points.
His speaking style is usually not to stay behind the podium, but to move
around the stage without notes, making the presentation more dynamic.
He is also excellent during Q&A segments.
- Add on Features. In addition to a keynote
lecture, Knoke is usually open to (i) attend any social mixers the night
before; (ii) autograph his book for attendees should organizers wish to make
books available; (iii) organize a round-table discussion following the
lecture around the themes of a
Futures’ Wheel Exercise; (iv) make his lecture notes available on
special-purpose pages in his website several months following the
Possible Group Activity
