"Craig Unsworth is an electrifying innovator, strategist, and leader. My global finance team was very fortunate to have Craig at our quarterly event as our special guest speaker. His speech on the topics of innovation and digitalisation was very well tailored and provided a highly relevant perspective to the audience facing many questions of organisational change. In just less than one hour, participants gained a fresh perspective on the major trends that are transforming business. Craig has a very deep professional expertise and his passion for the subject is infectious. Undoubtedly, Craig is among the very best speakers and influencers we have ever come across!" -  Finance Director, American Express


"Craig Unsworth is undoubtedly one of the UK’s top tech and product speakers. His global and industry experience is extensive and highly sought after. I have worked with Craig for many years - and most recently at a conference, where he was a keynote speaker and special lecturer, for a global c-suite audience on product and design thinking. His ability to distil complex ideas is mirrored by the valuable new insights, learnings, and thinking in technology he brings. His professionalism and passion as a speaker are always received incredibly well and he takes the time to ensure everything he is presenting is of the highest standards. He will wow - and be a huge asset to - any event or conference he’s a part of." -  JBI Member, Boardwave  Chief Curator, AIPC

Craig Unsworth is an inspiring and energetic speaker on all things digital, product, technology, and change. With his Chief Product Officer, Non-Executive Director, and Board Chair background he has 20 years’ experience, insights, successes, and failures.

With a unique perspective on driving transformation - in part because of how his Asperger’s Syndrome forces binary thinking and deep commitment to results - he is perhaps best known for delivering seemingly-impossible product-centric Moonshot projects that transform companies.

A digital native and one of the first of his generation to arrive at the boardroom, his panel participation, workshop facilitation, and keynote speech delivery are all a mix of technology, strategy, people (including how people and AI will co-exist), and growth. Working globally, in companies from 10 to 100,000 people, and with some of the most demanding investors he knows what it takes to inspire and realise change.

Successes (taking a flat growth non-digital company to a technology-centric stock market listing within 18 months) and failures (trying to launch a disruptive platform for the airline industry immediately prior to the Covid-19 pandemic for example) have shaped his experience and his on-stage energy builds on both.

An undergraduate dropout, Craig has gone on to study at Harvard Business School, MIT, Wharton (University of Pennsylvania), and Saïd Business School (University of Oxford). He is a Fellow of The Royal Society for Arts (FRSA). A former Chair of ad:tech London, where he was a Member of its Advisory Board, he is an Advocate for Tech London Advocates (TLA), and also served on the Executive Committee of BIMA (British Interactive Media Association) leading the Technology and Inclusion committee groups.


A regular keynote speaker, he talks at conferences, festivals, and events around the world, including: WIRED Retail, TNW Conference, SXSW, Web Summit, Money 20/20, World Employer Branding Day, Singapore Fintech Festival, and World Travel Market. His corporate client list includes Google, Mastercard, American Express, AIPC, P&G, and the Financial Times.
