Keynote: Thomas Frey, Futurist

Over the past decade, Thomas Frey, Executive Director of DaVinci Institute in Westminster, CO, has built an enormous following based on his ability to develop accurate visions of the future and describe the opportunities ahead. Having started seventeen businesses himself and assisting on the development of hundreds more, the understanding he brings to his audiences serves as a rare blend of reality-based thinking coupled with a clear-headed visualization of the world ahead. Predicting the future has little value without understanding the driving forces behind the trends, subtle nuances that can be leveraged, and implications for both the people directly affected in the industry as well as others farther down the technological food chain.

Before launching DaVinci Insitute, Tom spent 15 years at IBM as an engineer and designer where he received over 270 awards, more than any other IBM engineer.  He is also a past member of the Triple Nine Society.
