Shara was recently named by Forbes as one of the World’s Top 50 Female Futurists, and is also the Founder and CEO of Market Clarity, an award-winning technology analyst firm that provides insight, intelligence and advice on all aspects of emerging technologies.
Shara also founded Telsyte (which she sold to publicly listed UXC, now part of DXC Technology), and has been providing innovative research and strategic consulting on telecoms and emerging technologies throughout her successful career, as well as serving on Advisory Boards for organisations such as CSIRO.
In addition to consulting assignments, Shara is now offering an online “FUTURIST IN RESIDENCE” virtual services for executive teams.
Shara is able to join your Board or Executive Management meetings on a one-off or ongoing package basis. This can be done via audio or video connectivity, although we recommend a video option, as facial expressions and gestures are such an important part of human communications. If you don’t already have an internal video platform, no worries! We can provide both a video platform and meeting moderator.
Shara is one of those rare individuals who merge incredible technical skills with an innate understanding of the social and economic impact of new technologies.
In this time of crisis, having one of the world’s leading technology futurist experts who is also a strategic consultant with a multi-decade track record as part of your team will give you the edge you need to navigate times of uncertainty, and turn emerging global trends to your advantage.
Shara has been researching all aspects of COVID-19, and is ready to help you and your team respond quickly to the many uncertainties that may arise as we move from lock downs to an increasingly open environment. Whether it comes to understanding how technologies such as how AI and Robots can help your business, the Future of Work, Advanced Healthcare, Cybersecurity and more — having ad hoc access to one of the world’s top technology futurists can help you navigate the “new normal” as it begins to emerge.
Shara helps her clients understand new product and service opportunities that are being underpinned by emerging technologies. Frequently working with executive, strategy and product teams, Shara gets organizations to think outside the box of what’s available today to imagine the world in 10 – 20 years, and assists them in commercializing these concepts into innovative new products and services.
Shara prides herself on taking the time to work with you and your team to tailor her advice to directly address the issues relevant to your company and industry.
