#16 Tom Raftery | A Curious Worldview | SAP Futurist & Innovation Evangelist
Tom Raftery is the Global VP, Futurist, and Innovation Evangelist for SAP, an inspirational keynote speaker and global influencer on how digitization and innovation are creatively disrupting our world.
I first heard Tom feature on Smarter Markets with Erik Townsend and was blown away by his optimistic worldview. True to his Irish roots, he communicated a narrative with charisma that is so often bumbled and fluffed around by his scientific comrades.
Renewable energy has a lot of bad PR working against it. There is certainly merit to being sceptical in the face of change, but since we know that our current energy consumption is destroying the planet why is the green message so hard to swallow?
