Anuraj is a trans-disciplinary expert. His practical knowledge spans across executive management, innovation, entrepreneurship, education and leadership, disruptive technologies, design thinking and holistic wellbeing. This diversity gives him a broad perspective and the ability to connect the dots to gain rare insights and for adopting a holistic approach to problem-solving.
Anuraj has worked for some of the biggest names in tech. From hands-on technical roles to senior executive management positions (holding titles from Chief Dreamer to President/Group Chief Strategy & Innovation Officer). He is well regarded as an industry visionary & deeply valued for his cross-domain thought leadership.
Anuraj incorporates a unique element to his talks with Inno-techshowcase/practical demonstrations/experiential hands-on sessions of new-age‘gadgets/gizmos/tools of the future’ and rapidly deriving strong local valuepropositions (from neuro/brainwave-sensors, mobile video holograms to smartglasses/eye-wear), various wearable-tech from head-to-toe.
At the intersection & fusion of disruptive technologies and market/industry trends there are numerous emerging applications that are rapidly shaping the modern world.
It is at the confluence of exponential tech like IoT, AI, AR/VR-MR/XR, Blockchain and 5G we are witnessing a maturing fourth industrial revolution and a new world order being formed.
Tech is a key enabler and the connect to Humanity is critical in solving existing or future problems.
The Heart and the Mind need to work in tandem to building intuitive capability and effectively using the RAS (Reticular Activation System) along with tapping the sub-conscious. Gain a deeper understanding to connect with the true purpose and meaningfully impact humanity.
It is about a holistic approach to everything thinking in ecosystems and operating systems so we can use the heart and intuition to help solve those difficult problems beyond pure scientific implementation.
We need to develop an exponential rather a Quantum Mindset and Heartset to embrace a rapidly advancing future.
Having a means to take an idea to impact or mind to market from the seed is critical to transcending inspiration to perspiration as idea means little until you do something with it.
The compelling solutions lies at the fusion of transdisciplinary thinking. Having a the right discipline, frameworks, culture for InnoMan (Innovation Management) is critical to curation of successful implementations. Innovation precedes Strategy and it is important to also define what not to do as part of formulating Strategy which encapsulates the overall Vision into a tangible milestone driven innovation roadmap.
'FLearings' or Learning from Failure is critical and it is no longer your own rather a smart system of collective crowd-sourcing of key learnings from the past as time is of essence and speed is everything. It is not longer the large beating the small but it is the fast beating the slow. We have to rapidly adapt to the exponential growth and pace of change.
And it is no longer about learning from the past we need to 'Learn from the Future'. Deep awareness of the present (being mindful) is fundamental to stay relevant. The Future holds key to growth and impact and one can use tools like thought experiments to solve problems at almost no cost.
So Insights and Foresights go hand in hand to building a holistic picture and putting in perspective technology application and impact. Applying the optimal balance of the 3 horizons will be most important. Smart Cities and Communities is one major domain that encapsulates multi-layered modelling across a multitude of industries.
And as we know the future is unevenly distributed – The world is moving so fast that there are days when the person who says it can’t be done is interrupted by the person who is already doing it. The Future needs to be Shaped & not Predicted
