Dex Torricke-Barton
British communications executive

Dex Torricke-Barton has worked with some of the world’s highest-profile leaders and organizations, advising them on areas of communication and thought leadership. Amongst others, he has worked as a speechwriter and advisor for Larry Page and Sergei Brin, Mark Zuckerberg, and Elon Musk’s SpaceX. He now brings together communication, policy and technology, looking at how business, government and society can both understand each other, and work together better.

Examining the intersection of technology, government and society, Dex considers the power of innovation to change the world, and the implications. From how professions will be disrupted by AI to the dangers of increased global connections being replaced by internet ‘blocs’ as the likes of Russia and China seek to control their nation’s access to information. He examines the key trends in the tech sector and how every business will need to incorporate AI into their structure. Whilst being positive about the power of technology to empower, create and unite, he gives a balanced view of how it’s also changing the world, including ethical, regulatory and political concerns. He also offers a glimpse into how companies like Google and SpaceX operate, innovate and develop leadership and strategies.
