As the Global Leader of the Digital Transformation Practice for Norton Rose Fulbright, a professional services firm with over 7,000 employees, Nick Abrahams is at the front line of global business & innovation. He has advised many of the world’s largest companies on their digital transformation strategies, including how to seize the opportunities created by the mainstream adoption of digital assets and protocols like cryptocurrencies, decentralised finance and non-fungible tokens.
Nick created the world’s first AI-enabled privacy chatbot and was a category winner in the Financial Times Asia-Pac Innovator of the Year Awards in 2020. Separate to NRF, he is the co-founder of Australia’s leading online legal service, LawPath which has over 250,000 users and was recognised in the 2020 Deloitte Fast 50 as one of Australia’s fastest growing companies.
He is a director of: the Vodafone Foundation; the Sydney Film Festival and global genomics research leader, the Garvan Foundation. In December 2020 he stepped off the board of ASX300 software company, Integrated Research after six years. He is the author of two Amazon best-selling books Digital Disruption in Australia and Big Data, Big Responsibilities.
Nick Abrahams is a futurist. But Nick’s real-world business experience makes him very different to other futurists. Nick doesn’t just read about trends, he lives them every day in his various roles. The knowledge he gains from being at the front line of global business means his presentations have a currency and a credibility that is hard to match.
Nick’s profile as a global executive, media commentator and best-selling author gives him the ability to engage not only a large conference audience but also to provide meaningful guidance to smaller leadership groups or boards.
Whether it is an auditorium, board room or virtual event, Nick aims to:
Inform … people about what is happening in the real world
Equip ... each person with an action plan and, importantly
Entertain ... as we know learning works best when enjoyed.
This last point is a key differentiator for Nick as: he was a professional standup comic; he wrote and appeared in his own TV show and he appeared in a film with Woody Allen. Nick speaks at over 40 live/virtual events globally each year bringing his unique blend of hands-on insight and humour to audiences.
