Book Spencer for live events
Spencer has been following the technology scene for more than 20 years, and has witnessed the rise of many start-ups and the fall of tech giants. He’s reported on the passing of power from Japan to America to Korea to China to India.
He’s been hosting conferences, chairing panels, and presenting keynotes around the world for just as long, bringing his experience to bear on any tech topic you can imagine (and some you can’t).
He has interviewed some of the biggest names in the business, including Bill Gates, Steve Wozniak, director James Cameron, Vint Cerf, Tim Berners-Lee, music legends Paul McCartney, Will.I.Am and Brian Eno, security threats Edward Snowden and Julian Assange, national treasures David Attenborough and Stephen Fry, and even talked tech with HM The Queen.
And he certainly has first-hand experience of the ideas that take flight, and those that disappear without a trace. He told Spotify’s founder it would never work, completely passed Twitter by during its start-up phase, and confidently predicted that Apple would never make a tablet – a mere 12 hours before they launched the iPad.

Things That Have Melted My Mind
Spencer Kelly is in the middle of a life-long love affair with Science and Tech. He’s been presenting the BBC technology TV programme Click for more than 20 years now, and in that time he’s seen the weirdest and most brilliant things from all corners of the world. Sit back and enjoy stories of amazing innovations and oh-wow moments, plus insights and reflections on how different cultures innovate, and what we can learn from them.
Everything seems to be moving so quickly at the moment. Nimble startups can adapt quickly, but changing the course of even a medium sized business can feel like turning a supertanker. How do you think like a startup? What do the new technologies mean for you? Could you – should you – use Blockchain to host an NFT created by AI to be viewed in AR in the VR 360 Quantum Metaverse? What does any of it mean?
