Jim Carroll will provide you with the detailed, extensively researched, highly customized disruptive trends and innovation insight that you need – on the topic you require.
He is known globally for his ability to provide concise, detailed insight for offsite CEO or CxO leadership events, and has been doing this for close to 30 years. The world’s top speakers bureaus – the same folks who book Barak Obama, Richard Branson, and Malcolm Gladwell – have booked him into hundreds of such events through the years, having full confidence in him as their ‘go-to guy‘ for highly specialized topic requests.
Organizations like NASA, Disney, Volvo, PGA of America, World Bank, and Pfizer made the investment to have Jim open a critical internal leadership or key customer/client event.
- NASA had him deliver (twice) a keynote on the ‘future of space‘ in the context of space privatization and commercialization
- the PGA of America had him provide his insight (twice) on the transformative trends that would provide for massive growth and innovation in the golf industry
- Pfizer had him provide an internal leadership keynote on the transformation of healthcare through virtual and telemedicine, accelerated science and R&D, doctor and patient empowerment, medical device connectivity, and more – 6 months before the global pandemic
- the World Bank / International Finance Corporation had him deliver a very detailed keynote on the future of manufacturing and opportunities for growth in third-world economies at a major event they hosted in Morocco
- Volvo had him deliver (twice) concise industry research on the trend toward electric vehicles and autonomous technology, for an internal leadership meeting and a dealer event
- Disney, faced with an onslaught of disruptive business model change, had him deliver a keynote on key concepts related to leading-edge innovation and creativity
His insight is based on proven research and facts.
- his sophisticated trends tracking and research system regularly scans dozens of rapidly emerging technologies including artificial intelligence, digital twin technology, advanced genomics, material science, and more than 100+ other topics, following the impact across healthcare, consumer goods, agriculture, and dozens of other industries and sub-industries
- he shares this insight through sophisticated trends research reports that cover near-term (1 to 6 months), medium (6-24 months), and long-term trends (> 2 years), and weaves the insight into his stage presentations, combined with up to the minute deep research performed undertaken for every customized keynote
The fact is experience and a proven track record matter.
- Jim has spoken to over 2 million people, over 30 years, on 5 continents
- he has 30 years of well-honed stage presence and style
- he has an established reputation as THE thought leader with very detailed, extensive, industry-specific insight
- this includes keynotes on agriculture, finance, insurance, retail, manufacturing, healthcare, energy, sports, transportation & infrastructure, consumer products & more
- no two presentations have ever been the same
- each is carefully crafted based on particular client issues, trends, and requirements
- Jim conducts extensive, in-depth research using sophisticated online research tools that lead him to research papers, industry reports, news media, and more
- most keynotes and leadership meetings involve extensively customized research preparation
- his insight is enhanced by unique insight shared with him from his global Fortune 1000 client base
- most of his events have been for senior executive leadership teams at corporate offsite retreats
- many of the topics covered have been related to fast-emerging disruptive trends that require immediate team coordination
He Only Does a Limited Number of Events Each Year.
Jim only takes on 20-30 events a year.
He’s not a ‘volume’ guy, pounding out 100 or 150 keynotes a year.
Folks that do that don’t really care about customizing to your needs. It doesn’t fit the ‘volume’ model.
He takes pride in his work. He loves a deep, customized topic challenge. He thrives on working with you.
If you want a canned speech that fits a formula, Jim is not your guy, to be honest.
If you value customized insight, from someone who deeply cares about his work, Jim is your guy.

His ability to take on complex topics is broad – for example, compelling, strategic AI insight.
