Paul Armstrong's Biography

Paul Armstrong is a leading strategist and advisor on emerging technologies and where big tech like Meta, Amazon, Alibaba, Google, Apple, OpenAI are going next. Paul works with a range of F500 clients from P&G to Panasonic, Coca-Cola to Verizon, along with agencies and startups of all sizes.

A trusted source for the FT, Wall Street Journal, BBC, CNN and others,  when tech news breaks, Paul also writes for a number of publications including The Information, Reuters, and Cool Hunting and has written for global publications (Forbes, Wired, Singularity University) about emerging technologies for decades.

Paul’s first book, “Disruptive Technologies: A Framework to Understand, Evaluate and Respond to Digital Disruption” (an Amazon bestseller) offers organizations a distinct response to emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, AR and blockchain – that impact their business, client service and product model. The TBD (technology, behaviour, data) framework in the book led to the creation of TBD Conference (recently voted one of the Top 50 global technology conferences) and more recently, the introduction of TBD Group which houses the tech advisory business and intelligence products like C_NCENTRATE (emerging…everything) and the ‘What Did _____ Do This Week’ series, which currently has OpenAI and Amazon versions  (more planned to launch in 2024).
