Cloud Surfing

A New Way to Think About Risk, Innovation, Scale, and Success

Tom Koulopoulos

When people hear “the Cloud,” they think of cloud computing, just a sliver of what the Cloud is today. The Cloud has grown: it represents the consummate disruptor to structure; a pervasive social and economic network that will soon connect and define more of the world than any other political, social, or economic organization. The Cloud is the first megatrend of the twenty-first century, one that will shape the way we will address virtually every challenge we face for at least the next 100 years. It is where we will all live, work, and play in the coming decades. The Cloud is 
where your kids go to dive into online play. It’s where you meet and make friends in social networks. It’s where companies find the next big idea. It’s where political campaigns are won and lost. Cloud Surfing is the groundbreaking book that will explain how to access the full value of the Cloud and how to embrace its possibilities.

  • Tom Koulopoulos of Delphi played a key role in the winning formulae. Not only did his keynote speech receive accolades, as evidenced by the attendee questionnaire, but in his key role as moderator for the two panels he adroitly provided much needed linkages in the diverse subject matter. Tom's breadth of knowledge coupled with his podium panache are no doubt the reasons why he is one of North America's most sought after speakers.

Mr. Koulopoulos has had excellently prepared presentations with new and exciting information. Consistency and diversity in his presentations separate him from all the rest.
