Jacob Morgan

  • One of the World’s Leading Authorities on the Future of Work and Employee Experience
  • 3x Best-Selling Author, Keynote Speaker and Futurist
  • Founder of "The Future If", a global  community of business leaders, authors and futurists

After graduating with honors in business management economics and psychology, Jacob was excited to join the corporate world. At his first job he was told that he’d be traveling the country, meeting with executives and entrepreneurs, and doing all sorts of exciting work. A few months in, he was stuck doing data entry, cold calling, and PowerPoint presentations. One day the CEO came out of his nice corner office, handed Jacob a $10 bill and said, “I’m late for a meeting, go grab me a cup of coffee, and get something for yourself as well.” That was the last corporate job he ever had.

Today Jacob Morgan is one of the world’s leading authorities on the future of work and employee experience. He is the best-selling author of three books: The Employee Experience Advantage (2017), The Future of Work (2014), and The Collaborative Organization (2012). Jacob speaks at over 40conferences a year on topics ranging from AI and automation, management and leadership, the future of work, the 4th industrial revolution, employee experience, the internet of things, and other related themes. He also provides advisory and thought leadership services to various organizations around the world.

Jacob is also the founder of “The Future If,” a global community of business leaders, authors and futurists who explore what our future can look like IF certain technologies, ideas, approaches and trends actually happen. The community looks at everything from AI and automation to leadership and management practices to augmented reality and virtual reality, the 4thindustrial revolution and everything in between.

His work has been endorsed by the CEOs of: Nestle, Best Buy, Cisco, SAP, KPMG, Schneider Electric, T-Mobile, Whirlpool, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Zappos, Atari, and many others.

His You tube series, The Future in 5, explores the latest concepts and ideas around the future of work with inspiring and educational 2-3 minute snippets which are all professionally shot and edited.

Founder, Atari & Chuck E. Cheese’s

“When it comes to the future of work, Jacob is both extremely passionate and knowledgeable about the subject. He also has an interesting spin on the kinds of things that can be done to engage and stimulate creative thought in the workplace. I highly recommend Jacob as a speaker!” Nolan Bushnell - Founder, Atari & Chuck E. Cheese’s

EVP and Chief Human Resources Officer, Staples

“Jacob delivered a powerful keynote to a group of CHROS that forced them to challenge the status quo and think critically about how they design their own organizations for the future of work. His talk was refreshing, unique, fun, and very informative. I definitely recommend Jacob as a keynote speaker!” Regis Mulot - EVP and Chief Human Resources Officer, Staples

Chief People Officer, Cisco

“As a leader focused on the employee experience, leadership and workforce trends, Jacob’s perspectives into the trends of the future workforce are insightful and spot on!” Francine Katsoudas, Chief People Officer, Cisco

CEO, National Association of Workforce Boards

“Jacob kept our 1500 attendees engaged from beginning to end by demonstrating his enthusiasm, humor, and knowledge for how work is changing. Though, it is his style that so clearly helped him connect with our audience. Jacob isn’t so much a “lecturer” as a “friend in conversation” and it was a pleasure to spend time with him and added to our understanding of what is happening to “jobs/ work”. I have no hesitation in saying, Jacob was a great choice to join The Forum 2016 hosted by the National Association Workforce Boards. “ Ron Painter - CEO, National Association of Workforce Boards

President, Turner International

“Jacob delivered a great keynote to our international executive team on how to think about and create an organization where people truly want to show up. His talk was funny, informative, and eye-opening. I highly recommend Jacob as a speaker!” Gerhard Zeiler - President, Turner International
