Anuraj
Ghambir

Innovation Evangelist & Expert on Wearable Tech

Profile

Anuraj Gambhir is an internationally recognized Exponential Thought Leader, Strategic Business/Startup Advisor and Technology Visionary.

Anuraj is an Innovation Evangelist, Business Strategist on the outside and Altruist, Philosopher on the inside, and a million things in between. He is focused on shaping the future of humanity from ‘mindset to heartset’. As an Innovation catalyst and Transdisciplinary expert Anuraj assists organizations to spearhead their innovation agenda using exponential technologies.

He has over 30 years of experience working across the mobile ecosystem, spanning 5 continents. Some prominent companies he has worked with include NASA/JPL, Optus, Logica/Aethos, T-Mobile, Orange, GSM Association, Sharp, Siemens, Spice, Ericsson, MTS, Globacom, and is part of the global faculty at SingularityU. Key domains include the future of Health / Wellbeing, Learning / Education, Media, Transportation, Telecom, Energy & Space as part of emerging Smart Cities / Communities. He has been an early pioneer in the design and development of smartphones and the convergent smart mobile devices revolution.

His practical knowledge spans across executive management, innovation, entrepreneurship, conscious leadership, exponential technologies, design thinking and holistic wellbeing. Anuraj's deeper quest and purpose has been at the intersection of technology and spirituality.

He belongs to tribes of global change-makers, innovators, Imagineers and activators. He is particularly passionate about developing frugal innovations for helping bridge the digital divide (transforming it into digital opportunities) and empower underprivileged communities.

He believes that with a positive and abundant mindset through philosophy & movement he has spearheaded called 'White Mirror' (aligning it closely to the UN SDGs), use of exponential tech and activating/curating relevant communities and ecosystems we can make the impossible possible. We can collaborate to solve any problem as tech evolves from novelty to help create novel solutions for humanity.

Talking Points

Technology & Innovation

At the intersection & fusion of disruptive technologies and market/industry trends there are numerous emerging applications that are rapidly shaping the modern world.

It is at the confluence of exponential tech like IoT, AI, AR/VR-MR/XR, Blockchain and 5G we are witnessing a maturing fourth industrial revolution and a new world order being formed.

Tech is a key enabler and the connect to Humanity is critical in solving existing or future problems.

Where the heart meets the mind

The Heart and the Mind need to work in tandem to building intuitive capability and effectively using the RAS (Reticular Activation System) along with tapping the sub-conscious. Gain a deeper understanding to connect with the true purpose and meaningfully impact humanity.

It is about a holistic approach to everything thinking in ecosystems and operating systems so we can use the heart and intuition to help solve those difficult problems beyond pure scientific implementation.

We need to develop an exponential rather a Quantum Mindset and Heartset to embrace a rapidly advancing future.

Innovation Management & Strategies

Having a means to take an idea to impact or mind to market from the seed is critical to transcending inspiration to perspiration as idea means little until you do something with it.

The compelling solutions lies at the fusion of transdisciplinary thinking. Having a the right discipline, frameworks, culture for InnoMan (Innovation Management) is critical to curation of successful implementations. Innovation precedes Strategy and it is important to also define what not to do as part of formulating Strategy which encapsulates the overall Vision into a tangible milestone driven innovation roadmap.

The past and the future

'FLearings' or Learning from Failure is critical and it is no longer your own rather a smart system of collective crowd-sourcing of key learnings from the past as time is of essence and speed is everything. It is not longer the large beating the small but it is the fast beating the slow. We have to rapidly adapt to the exponential growth and pace of change.

And it is no longer about learning from the past we need to 'Learn from the Future'. Deep awareness of the present (being mindful) is fundamental to stay relevant. The Future holds key to growth and impact and one can use tools like thought experiments to solve problems at almost no cost.

So Insights and Foresights go hand in hand to building a holistic picture and putting in perspective technology application and impact. Applying the optimal balance of the 3 horizons will be most important. Smart Cities and Communities is one major domain that encapsulates multi-layered modelling across a multitude of industries.

And as we know the future is unevenly distributed - The world is moving so fast that there are days when the person who says it can’t be done is interrupted by the person who is already doing it. The Future needs to be Shaped & not Predicted
