At this point, it’s impossible to avoid the convergence of technology, business, and human connection, but would we really want to if we could? According to Deborah Westphal — author, consultant, and futurist — there is a bright future ahead, and businesses should embrace the changes that technology will continue to bring. In this eye-opening episode of the Transform Your Workplace podcast, Brandon sits down with Deb Westphal to learn all about the role of technology in human connection, especially concerning its effect on the future of business.


  • Technology is allowing people to connect and communicate in ways that they never have before, so business would be wise to embrace this change.
  • The purpose of business is to serve a broader spectrum of stakeholders, including employees, suppliers, communities, and customers.
  • The network effect that technology allows will create even more innovation and more solutions.
  • Future thinking resides in all of us, but it’s all about how much risk we’re willing to take to shake up the status quo.


Deborah Westphal — author, consultant, and futurist — has over 30 years of experience guiding businesses to future success and security. She is the recent author of Convergence: Technology, Business, and the Human-Centric Future, a challenging read about reevaluating the focus on technology and human connection within our businesses.
