Ira S Wolfe is a Millennial in a Baby Boomer body. Dentist turned futurist, TEDX speaker, 6X author and now Top 5 Global Thought Leader on the future of work, HR and adaptability. There’s no one better equipped to help guide us through these Never Normal times with his combination of wisdom, wit, and experience.

Fascinated with the next phase of human evolution and capability, he accurately forecast the current Perfect Labor Storm we’re experiencing 20 years ago. He is both captivated and terrified by the lightning-fast speed of exponential change and the volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous nature of the world we live in. Disruption, innovation, creativity, and radical transformation never cease to stimulate his imagination. He’s thrilled by the possibilities that arise from the intersection of novel ideas, human ingenuity, and cutting-edge technology, envisioning a world where everyone’s quality of life is improved, education is advanced, poverty is eradicated, cancer is cured, our planet is protected, and so much more. However, the ever-increasing velocity of technological progress also fills him with dread, especially when considering the growing divide in knowledge, the shifting of power, and the widespread naivete among the masses.

Ira is a TEDx Speaker and also 2022 inductee into the HRSouthwest Conference Speaker Hall of Fame. He’s a frequent contributor to Forbes and Medium, and has been featured in Wall Street Journal, INC Magazine, Fast Company, Business Week, American Express OPEN, NFIB, Inc., Intuit Small Business, and Fox Business. He is also the author of five other books, including Perfect Labor Storm and Understanding Business Values and Motivators.

With his wealth of experience, infectious enthusiasm, and sharp wit, Ira is a sought-after speaker and consultant, helping businesses around the world navigate the ever-changing landscape of work with confidence and success.

 As the president and Chief Googlization Officer of Poised for the Future Company, a senior consultant with Dame Leadership, and the founder of the Googlization Nation community, Ira is committed to helping organizations thrive in the ever-changing world of work. He is also the host of the popular Geeks Geezers Googlization podcast, part of the People-Forward Network.
