Paul Armstrong is a leading strategist, author, and speaker on the future of technology, disruption, retail innovation, media industry, social technologies, consumer technology, mobile innovation, IoT, Martech/Adtech, start-ups, and the start-up ecosystem. Paul runs the technology advisory HERE/FORTH where he helps clients including PwC, Coca-Cola, O2, P&G, jkrGlobal and MEC understand trends and how to sensibly apply emerging technologies strategically.  

Paul is regularly seen on the BBC and News at Ten, when industry comment is called for, and currently writes for a number of publications, including Forbes, Reuters, Cool Hunting, Evening Standard, and Short List.
