What Others Are Saying About Charles
Unlike a consultant, who comes across as theoretical, Charlie came across as a practitioner, creating a sense that he was “one of us”. Toyota is a company that connects with people. Charlie’s family story and…background made the team feel the…connection.

Excellent and engaging speaker who was able to distill a complex topic into understandable concepts and ideas for how to implement. His session should be longer as he has so much good info to present and the audience was thoroughly engaged.

itSMF Australia was thrilled to have Charles Araujo the author of “the Quantum Age of IT” present as a Keynote at the Leadit Conference in 2013. His keynote was thought provoking and inspiring with a great compelling story that built the case for the new role that the IT Leader must fulfill, to become indispensable in this new age. Feedback from our delegates included “Outstanding presentation”, “Exceeded Expectations”, “A new way of thinking that clearly I need to embrace” . We hope that Charles can return to Australia to present again, in the near future!

Leading Your Organization into the Digital Future (Keynote)
We are in the midst of a fundamental transition from the Industrial Age to the Digital Era. The result will be a world that looks and operates much differently than the one we inhabit today – and the implications for enterprise organizations, those who lead them, and those who sell to them are profound.
Industry analyst, author and speaker Charles Araujo will explore the implications of this transition, deconstruct what it means to you as a leader, and what you must do to prepare to transform your organization for the digital era. In this insightful and thought-provoking presentation, he will help you understand how the Digital Era is different from the Industrial Age, how this transition will directly impact your organization and the specific ways you will need to think differently to thrive in the Digital Era.
Is Digital Transformation Dead? (Keynote)
The term ‘digital transformation’ may be the buzzword of all buzzwords. It is used to sell every type of technology imaginable. From mainframes to voice systems, and everything in
between, marketers have connected everything to this magical term. And in the process, they may have killed it.
As an enterprise leader, it’s essential that you separate the fact from the fiction and the hype from the reality when it comes to leading your organization into the future. In this thought-provoking and insightful session, industry analyst, author and professional speaker Charles Araujo will share what he thinks about all the digital transformation buzz and, most importantly, what you should be watching, exploring and employing as you move forward.
Creating Advantage by Unleashing Creativity, Innovation & Ingenuity (Workshop)
In the digital era, anything that we can reduce to an algorithm, we will automate. This will shift the nature of how organizations create and sustain business value. Creating competitive advantage in the digital era, therefore, requires that you embrace and unleash the human characteristics within your employees and teams that will set your organization apart.
In this one-hour, interactive group discussion, participants will deconstruct how the human characteristics of creativity, innovation and ingenuity can be used to create competitive advantage within their organizations. Participants will walk away with practical ideas and next steps that they can apply immediately to begin the transformation of their organizations that will be the key to their ability to compete and thrive in the digital era.
