Brian Solis believes that “we are forever students” especially in a time when technology advances faster than our ability to truly master it. Even though Brian is usually running around doing his thing, he will always make time for students. In fact, he’s made a commitment to professors and students. If one of his books is used as course material, he will virtually visit each class to share his views and also answer student questions.

Brian Solis is een gepassioneerd spreker en pleitbezorger voor disruptie en ondernemerschap. Een deel van de grote zaal van de The Next Web Conference 2014 krijgt -voor mijn gevoel- zin om zijn baan op te zeggen. Een ander deel wordt in zijn ondernemerschap bevestigd. En dan heb je natuurlijk ook nog de mensen die vooral met smartphone of tablet of tablet. The Next Web is namelijk Livestreamed, hyperconnected, strak geproduceerd en bevolkt door meer schermpjes dan in de gemiddelde Mediamarkt te koop zijn. Het Digital Native gedrag is niet irritant, eerder een extra dimensie: de sprekers zijn erop ingesteld.
CIO’s J.D. Sartain published an important piece on how the sharing economy is impacting traditional businesses. The article features friends and former colleagues Brian Solis and Jeremiah Owyang.
To tee things up in the article, Owyang identifies five keys areas of the collaborative economy:
1. Goods. Women in particular share clothes and jewelry in order to access an unlimited closet without buying so many “things.” Startups such as 99 Dresses, Poshmark and Threadflip serve as buy/sell/trade sites that provide name-brand products that customers can continually recycle.
Brian Solis is a digital analyst, anthropologist, and also a futurist. In his work at Altimeter Group, Solis studies the effects of disruptive technology on business and society. He is an avid keynote speaker and award-winning author who is globally recognized as one of the most prominent thought leaders in digital transformation.
His most recent book, What's the Future of Business: Changing the Way Businesses Create Experiences (WTF), explores the landscape of connected consumerism and how business and customer relationships unfold in four distinct moments of truth. His previous book, The End of Business as Usual, explores the emergence of Generation-C, a new generation of customers and employees and how businesses must adapt to reach them. In 2009, Solis released Engage, which is regarded as the industry reference guide for businesses to market, sell and service in the social web.
