I’m Matt O’Neill, the Optimistic Futurist. I’m here to light up the way to a brighter future with AI for your organisation. As an AI keynote speaker and writer, I bring hope, excitement, and useful tips that will take your audience into an exciting future. My area of expertise is helping organisations understand Artificial Intelligence and how it changes our world.

Having started three businesses in marketing and communications—with one memorable failure—I've learned the value of taking chances and bouncing back. My endless curiosity about how our world is shifting led me to my purpose: helping people get ready for an uncertain future. This has led me to write two books, "The Future is Now" and "Future Hackers", aimed at helping others build a positive future for themselves.

I don’t just talk about these ideas; I live them. This makes me a true expert in the field. Let’s work together to get your organisation ready for what’s coming.
