“Trust is what makes us human. It is one of our most powerful resources, in personal interactions as well as in business, politics and society. At a time of fundamental change, Rachel Botsman helps us navigate the unknown. She’s a stellar guide, showing us the importance of making better decisions about where to place our trust in dealing with algorithms and machines–and the people who control them.” — DLD

Rachel Botsman is the leading thinker and author on trust in the modern world. By distilling complex ideas into clear and compelling content, she gives us the tools to understand trust – what it means, how it works and why it’s so important for every aspect of our lives.

Described as a visionary, Rachel is the author of two groundbreaking books. What’s Mine is Yours (2010) predicted the rise of the ‘sharing economy’ and was subsequently named by TIME as one of the “Ten Ideas That Will Change the World”. Her highly acclaimed work Who Can You Trust? (2017) is a profound exploration of how technology is revolutionising human trust and was shortlisted for the Business Book Awards.

Rachel designed and teaches two courses at Oxford University’s Saïd Business School and has been a prominent speaker at world-class events for more than a decade. A dynamic and witty storyteller, she is a master at connecting with audiences — opening their minds and stirring them into action. Her three TED talks have been viewed more than 4 million times and delegates consistently rate her as the top keynote speaker at the global events that she attends. Clients have called Rachel “transformational” and “captivating”; her presentations create a buzz that resonates long after the final word.

Tailoring her research to each audience, Rachel has been invited to speak to companies as diverse as Accenture, Goldman Sachs, Dorchester Collection, Microsoft and Salesforce, as well as at conferences such as the Drucker Forum, the World of Business Forum and the World Economic Forum. She is also an advisor to boards, senior leaders and governments around the world, helping organisations to build trustworthy cultures.

Speaking topics:

  • Why trust is fundamental to every action, relationship and transaction – and how to embed it into the fabric of an organisation
  • Understanding how the rules of how trust is managed, built, lost and repaired are rapidly changing in the digital age
  • A powerful way of thinking and talking about trust, setting you up to be a better leader, team player, partner and parent.
