Presentations & Talks

I love academic and professional events, seminars and conferences. I am pretty passionate about events, and I believe that there is a still a lot to do regarding organizing remarkable events.

In the past, I’ve delivered sharp presentations at various events and workshops, including academic presentations (MOOCs as the Next (and Last) Step in the Higher Education DecentralizationWhat Can Continental Philosophy of Mind Teach Us About Machine Minds and Libertarianism and Modern Conservatism: Friends or Foes?), expert lectures (Robo-Advisory, Virtual Assistants and Other Random Stuff: What Does It All Mean for Wealth Managers, Social Selling in the Financial Services Industry: Opportunities and Challenges in the Hyper-Connected Age and“Why Don’t They Follow Me?”: The Future of Social Investing) and inspirational keynotes (Evolutionary Psychology for Philosophers, What Should Everyone Know About Mainline Economics?). I have also chaired various events (Lean for Financial Services Industry) and lectured at multiple Finnish academic institutions on such topics as Austrian economics, wealth management, service logic, and service design in the digital context.

Feel free to contact me, for example, about setting up a speaking engagement, to give a lecture or presentation to your course/school/university, or just to grab a cup of coffee and talk emerging technologies, wealth management, service science, or the future of human enhancement. Please contact me for further details.
