Dave Coplin recently left Microsoft after ten years as CEO (Chief Envisioning Officer!) and now runs The Envisioners, his own company dedicated to helping companies manage future technology. He’s an in-demand speaker and writer. His first proper job was in an Apple store, and he urges us to be less cautious and fearful about technology, especially where our children are concerned. He says he still takes inspiration from a former boss and mentor, whose management style was to ‘sit quietly at the back and let things unfold with his encouragement.’ Listen as he urges us to get out of the 9-5 commuter, “bums in seats” mentality many corporations still have, and instead to use technology – such as laptops – as they were supposed to be used: to encourage a new way of working, rather than sticking to an outdated model of what work should be.
