Rachel Botsman is the global authority on an explosive new era of trust and technology. An award-winning author, speaker and University of Oxford lecturer, she has contributed to Wired, The Guardian, The Economist, and more.

Audiences leave her speaking engagements with a fresh, long-view of how technology is transforming human relationships and what this means for life, work and how we do business.

Her upcoming book, Who Can You Trust? (Penguin Portfolio, 2017) will revolutionise our perception of trust. She is also the co-author of, What’s Mine is Yours, which defined the theory of collaborative consumption and was named one of TIME’s “Ten Ideas That’ll Change the World”.

She currently teaches the world’s first MBA course on the collaborative economy at University of Oxford, Saïd Business School.

Described by clients including Google, Microsoft, Xero, Accenture and various government agencies as a “standout favourite for audiences”, with a “rare and visionary intellect”, she adapts her research on trust and makes it meaningful to a wide range of audiences – from business leaders to students, and from politicians to parents.
