Throughout his career, Scott Klososky has lived on the leading edge of technology innovation and its impact on the business world and society in general. He is recognized globally for his unique ability to accurately predict future digital trends and provide the logic behind why they will alter the current status quo. Read More >

Scott has the ability to entertain, inspire, and enlighten audiences while also translating difficult to understand technology topics. He is known for architecting each presentation specifically for the audience, and with the very latest information available. His topics include: the importance of organizational digital maturity, leading through the Digital Transformation, cybersecurity, machine intelligence, data intelligence, trendspotting, digital marketing, and best practices for digital governance.

He is equally adept at giving large stage keynotes, speaking to small boards of directors, facilitating half and full day workshops, and doing break-out sessions. His topics often create many questions and he enjoys being interactive with audiences when appropriate. The best measure of his ability to inspire and inform audiences is the high percentage of speaking clients who bring him back for follow on work with their audiences.

Scott is the founder of numerous successful technology startup companies, and this has helped him gain a unique perspective into technology’s impact on industry and humanity. He is not just an observer of digital trends, he has routinely invested in his future visions with a great track record of success.

This unique perspective and future vision have allowed Scott to travel the globe as a speaker, consultant, and author. He works with senior executives in organizations ranging from the Fortune 500 to universities, nonprofits, and countless professional associations and coalitions. As a technology entrepreneur, he also continually works in the trenches of building his own companies.

Scott is the founding partner of Future Point of View (FPOV), a digital strategy firm based in Oklahoma City. FPOV focuses on architecting world-class digital strategies, and in the process helps clients to raise revenue, lower costs and become leaders in their industry.

Scott began his career fresh out of high school, where his job in a new computer division of an office products company was springboard into the world of technology. He became the leaders of their computer sales division and then purchased it as his own company. It was eventually built into a twelve-store operation in three states.

His next endeavor was as founder and CEO of Paragraph, Inc., a Soviet/American joint venture founded in 1988, as this country was just opening up to western business models. Half of the company was sold to Silicon Graphics, and the other half sold as well a few years later.

Scott then collaborated with H.R. Haldeman to publish a diary of his years as the Chief of Staff to President Nixon, which was a bestseller (Putnam Publishing), and involved Sony Interactive in the release of a book companion CD-ROM.

In 1995 Scott started another company named Avant Digital Marketing which was later renamed Webcasts.com. This start-up was an early producer of webcasted media ranging from corporate and government communications to sporting events and entertainment. It was sold in 2000 for $115 million.

In 2007 Scott once again founded a start-up called Alkami Technology. This company developed a second-generation online banking platform with innovative features non-existent in current systems. The company is today headquartered in Dallas and has over 250 employees.

Along the way Scott has participated as a board member with a number of firms. Examples include WeGoLook which sold in 2017 for approximately $40 million and First Fidelity Bank in Oklahoma and Phoenix.

He is the author of four books including his most recent title, Did God Create the Internet? The Impact of Technology on Humanity. Read Less ^

The rise of machines is both exciting and scary for some people. It shouldn’t be “scary” and the more you learn about the subject, the more exciting it is.

Customer Experience: Selling in a Hyper-Personalized World

What if you knew exactly what each of your constituents (customers, members, patients, vendors, employees etc) REALLY wanted? Would that help you develop customer loyalty? If you could anticipate what each person wanted from you before they told you, how would knowing that change your approach? Read More >

Through use of big data and digital connections, you can individualize relationships with any client or prospect you value. A hot topic in marketing today is “hyper-personalization.”

This is the process of gathering a deep level of information on your constituents and then using that information to create loyal and valued relationships. This goes way beyond installing a CRM system! Scott has been on the vanguard of digital marketing techniques since digital marketing was born.

In this session, he combines his custom knowledge of your industry and digital marketing savvy to show attendees several new methods for driving business. This includes using the process of “mapping the customer journey” to detail every touchpoint in relationships and how either a human or technology connection can be used to create a fantastic experience.

As a special bonus, Scott can provide sample templates and tools that are used to complete these processes, so attendees can create a strategic plan for their organization. Read Less ^

The Technology Integration of Humanity

A recent study shows the average age a child first sees porn is eight years old. Pause for a beat and consider the impact of that statement and know that there are many more startling facts that surround the way technology is integrating into every aspect of our personal and professional lives. Read More >

Among the millions of utopian joys gained from the internet we also find ourselves enduring much that is dystopian. The concepts discussed in Scott’s most recent book, Did God Create the Internet?

The Impact of Technology on Humanity, are the backbone of this thought-leading keynote. One of the most speculated questions people (especially parents) have about technology is how it will impact us as a species over time.

Will all these new digital tools be good or bad for us as a species? What is technology doing to us today? Are we going to be happier? Work longer and harder, or less? Will we have less privacy? Will younger generations lose capabilities that older generations had, or will our young people be much more powerful than their predecessors?

Scott weaves together technology and philosophy into a thought-provoking talk that is sure to be mind expanding. There is a lot of flexibility to deliver content that is futuristic or relevant today.

The tone can be conversational and filled with stories, or a serious call to action to make better decisions about boundaries with digital tools. (Despite the title of Scott’s book, this talk is not religious in nature.) Read Less ^
