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.
CIO, Toyota Financial Services
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!

The Future of Leadership in a Digitally Disrupted World (Keynote)
Our world has been turned upside down. Technology now powers everything: every business process, every interaction and virtually every facet of the customer experience. And this “Digital Disruption” is now reshaping the very foundations of how organizations are structured and operate.
In this digitally disrupted world, the very essence of what it means to be in IT has changed. But this is about more than just IT. The implications are equally significant for anyone trying to lead in this new era as the traditional barriers between IT and business break down. Based on his best selling book, “The Quantum Age of IT: Why Everything You Know About IT is About to Change”, Charles Araujo will examine the changes reshaping the fabric of our organizations and the two key characteristics that will define the “Digital Leader” of the (very near) future and what this means to IT leaders everywhere.
Thinking Digital: How to Become the Leader Your Organization Desperately Needs in the Digital Era (Keynote)
We are in the midst of a fundamental transition from the Industrial 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 and those who lead them are profound.
Based on his forthcoming book, Thinking Digital: How to Become a Leader for the Digital Era and Transform Your Organization into a Digital Enterprise, Charles Araujo will explore the implications of this transition and deconstruct what it means to you as a leader and what you must do to prepare to transform your organization into a Digital Enterprise. In this insightful and thought-provoking presentation, he will help you understand how the Digital Era is different from the Industrial Era, how this transition will change how organizations are structured and managed and the specific ways you will need to think differently to thrive in the Digital Era.
Roadmap to Digital Transformation (Workshop)
The term “digital transformation” is entering the hype cycle. But what does it really mean in real world terms? More importantly, what is required to successfully execute a transformative effort and how do you know if you’ve succeeded? In this interactive workshop, we will break down the real reasons to execute a digital transformation, what it means to become a digital enterprise and how to reshape your culture and your team’s skills to thrive in the Digital Era.
This two-hour workshop is based upon research conducted by The Institute for Digital Transformation, in partnership with EMA, and is presented in an interactive, participatory format that alternates between explanatory sessions and small-group interactive discussions.
