Jim A. Gibson

Our Species and Technology at a Crossroads

Calgary-based entrepreneur Jim A. Gibson is an active leader in the Alberta innovation ecosystem. With 30 years of global experience at the forefront of technology and change, he is a passionate advocate for “paying attention” to what’s coming and providing concrete examples of how we can all be leaders and role models for change.

 

Jim’s talks take themes from his new book, Tip of the Spear, and challenge audiences to understand and respond to a new world that sees infinite possibilities meeting serious global problems head on.

 

Jim has an MBA from Schulich School of Business in Toronto, a B.Comm from the University of Toronto and holds his Certified Management Consulting Designation. He lives in Calgary, Canada with his family.

 

Tip of the Spear

Passionate, experienced and an infinitely curious entrepreneur, Jim shares his cautionary tale of our species and technology at a crossroads. Tip of the Spear is the product of his life’s work at the forefront of technology and change.

 

"Our use of the technologies we have invented are now poised on a blade’s edge. Either the Tip of the Spear levels the playing field in the areas of Governance, Finance and Education, or we use these extraordinary technologies to create further concentrations of wealth and increased inequality. We have a choice: we can use our newly connected planet to have real conversations, or we let it devolve into a rabble at the gate."
