Top blog posts of 2009: The future

Fourth in my series of summary blog posts from 2009 is selected presentations and videos from keynote speeches I’ve delivered this year (plus, at the end, my list of speaking topics for 2010).

My usual disclaimer: My presentation slides are highly visual and designed to accompany my speeches, and are NOT intended to be meaningful by themselves. The main reason I provide them on my blog is for the audience at my keynotes who want to look at the slides later. However it seems that others find the slides useful – in fact some have been viewed over 10,000 times on Slideshare.

I should also note that this list just includes a selection of the more interesting public keynotes I have given. I do not post slides for the presentations I frequently make for company in-house events such as divisional conferences and strategy off-sites.

Below are the links to the original blog posts which have the context and background for each presentation, with the embedded presentations below.
