Speakers on Trust in the Digital Age
Less than half the world’s population trusts government, business, or even civil society, according to Edelman. And with the increased transparency that comes with technological change, this distrust will only continue to grow.
So how can businesses win back trust in this digital age? Take a look at this list of speakers who provide expert insights on the topic and help audiences navigate this increasingly important question.
Michael Coates, Former CISO at Twitter and former Head of Security at Mozilla
For the past 15 years, Michael Coates has led information security for some of the world’s biggest brands. He was most recently the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) at Twitter, where he worked to protect nearly 300 million users and was responsible for securing Twitter systems and user data. In speeches, Coates breaks down the massive interconnection of different technologies, the explosion of data we’ve seen, and provides strategies for securing our systems and data. Plus, he evaluates controversial security stances, lays out the hard realities, and shares his realistic but optimistic view of securing the future of technology.
Mitch Joel, Technology and Innovation Expert & Best-Selling Author
When leaders from the world’s biggest brands need to decode the digital future, they turn to technology and innovation expert, Mitch Joel. Called "one of North America's leading visionaries" by Strategy Magazine, he talks about how technology is creating disruption in almost every industry and focuses on why not to view disruption as destruction—but rather as opportunity. Joel takes audiences on an exciting ride to understanding how to interact and develop trust with consumers, manage disruption, and leverage new technologies to outpace the competition.
Alex Stamos, Former Chief of Security at Facebook and Former Chief Information Security Officer at Yahoo
During his time at Facebook, Stamos led the company’s investigation into manipulation of the 2016 US election and helped pioneer several successful protections against these new classes of abuse. The New York Times said through that work he became known for his role as a “strong advocate inside [Facebook] for investigating and disclosing Russian activity on Facebook.” In speeches, Stamos shares lessons-learned from his time at Facebook and helps groups think through questions around safeguarding information and infrastructure, building a trustworthy company, and what ‘information warfare’ means in 2019 and beyond.
James Williams, Research Associate at the Oxford University and former Google Strategist
James Williams’ work sits at the intersection of philosophy, ethics, and technology. A research associate at Oxford University, he worked for over 10 years at Google, where he received the Founder’s Award for his work on search advertising. A recipient of the Nine Dots Prize for innovative thinking, Williams is also the author of the tech ethics book, Stand Out of Our Light: Freedom and Resistance in the Attention Economy. He speaks about persuasive technology and its impact on human life, the ethics of technology and social media broadly, the ways in which society and technology co-evolve, and the unique challenge of the attention economy.
Michael Maslansky, CEO of Maslansky + Partners; Expert on Language Strategies, and Author of The Language of Trust: Selling Ideas in a World of Skeptics
Selling ideas to a skeptical public is one of the major challenges companies face today. Based on more than a decade’s worth of research into how consumers and the public respond emotionally to communication, Maslansky explores the language of trust and what it means to communicate in a post-trust environment. In presentations, he uses real-time analysis to deliver highly usable takeaways and ideas, including principles to make your message believable, rules of engagement for overcoming difference, and phrases to ban from your vocabulary.

Named to the Forbes “30 Under 30” list for enterprise technology, Samantha Radocchia is the co-founder of Chronicled, Inc., which was named "San Francisco’s Best Tech Company" in 2018 by SF Weekly.
