Mind, Body, Spirit with Dr. Kayte

One of the things I love most about the Lifescale experience, is the entirely new adventures on which I’m whisked away. One such experience was the result of attending “The Rising Glen Collective” in Hollywood recently. I was asked to present on the story behind the book to a curated group of artists, entrepreneurs, athletes, experts and executives in an intimate setting–in a beautiful Hollywood Hills home over looking Los Angeles. Boy, was I nervous. Following the event, I met…

The Future of Work and Innovation is Tied to Personal Creativity, Productivity and Happiness

The Future of Work and Innovation is Tied to Personal Creativity, Productivity and Happiness

 What?…Me?…Distracted!?… Yes. You. Us. We are all distracted and have been increasingly so for a long time. But, this isn’t a story about distraction. This is a story about how we, with the help of seductive tech and real-time experiences, disrupted our creativity, promise and happiness. To explain more, I wanted to share a very special conversation with my friends at Gapingvoid Culture Design Group. I’ve had the pleasure to work with them on some of the most creative project…

Customer Experience In The Age Of Digital Distraction

Tamara McCleary is a dear friend.  I was so happy when I joined her on SAP’s Tech Unknown podcast, a show that features “discussions from the edge of next.” Honestly, I didn’t know she was going to be the host. So, it was all the more special. Our conversation focused on what has become my next keynote topic/presentation, “Experience in the Age of Digital Distraction.” The impact of digital distraction on work and everything from CX to EX to experience…

Digital Detox is not the Long-Term Answer to the Effects of Digital Distractions and Addiction

I’ve known Monty Hamilton for the better part of 10 years. He was the architect of one of my favorite conferences, The Australian Digital Summit in Sydney and Melbourne. He also currently advises and hosts the incredible Pivot conference in Geelong. I’ve had the privilege of keynoting both. After not seeing Monty for quite some time, I was lucky enough to catch up with him on a couple of back-to-back occasions in 2019…SXSW in Austin and twice in Silicon Valley…

Thank you Nextiva! — We recently hosted author and speaker Brian Solis on Nextiva’s Crowdcast. Brian is also the author of Lifescale: How to Live a More…

Attention is a Currency: When it Comes to Digital Distractions, We are Spending More Than We can Afford

Attention is a Currency: When it Comes to Digital Distractions, We are Spending More Than We can Afford

“Our attention is traded as a commodity. The more of it we spend on any given platform or vice, the more hosts can sell it for.” 🤳 This was a hard message to take to a massive event rooted in the very platforms at the center of so much disruption. But, the more we know (and embrace) the devastating effects of the dark side (and underbelly) of  social media and digital distractions, the more we can take control. We can then…

The Past, Present and Future of Social Media – How We Fell to the Dark Side and Why the Force is with Us

It was 2017 when I failed to deliver what would have been my eighth book. At the time, I was approaching the two year anniversary of the release of my previous work, X: The Experience When Business Meets Design. I was feeling the pressure to deliver. At the same time, my goal was to amplify my reach as an author, speaker and also as an authentic voice in a sea rife with other brilliant minds and more so, exceptional marketers. But,…
