Earlier today I met Ross Dawson, a leading futurist, entrepreneur, keynote speaker, strategy advisor, and bestselling author who is based in Sydney but works globally.

A blogger since 2002, over the years Ross has gained a reputation for being a leading authority on subjects such as the network economy, the future of business and work, crowdsourcing, social media, professional services, financial services, high-value relationships, influence networks, social network analysis and shared value creation. You can read Ross’s blog here.

In the Speakeasy Espresso & Brew Bar near Carnaby Street in London we talked about Ross’s work and a few of his specialist topics, including the future of organisations.

I asked Ross how he got to the position where people view him as a futurist, so that now he is regularly invited to speak at conferences around the world, what organisational structures successful businesses will adopt in a networked world, the importance of using social media to develop strong and engaged communites around brands and how technology will impact on the practice of law.
