Are you ready to lead in the Hackerverse?
Let’s talk about how the lines between our physical and digital selves are beginning to blur and have been for years now.
Space Invaders gave way to Packman and Galaga, which gave away to Atari. Then, it was companies like Activision that put us in the player’s seat in our own living rooms. Blink and it's the video game revolution where Nintendo battled with Sega and Sony came out with the PS2 and then Microsoft joined the race with the X Box.
Soon the Sims give way to Second Life, and before you know it Bitcoin is all the buzz and corporations, as well as the financial industry are pouring billions into the Blockchain! Blink and Hollywood jumps on board and brings “Ready Player One” to the average person, demonstrating how a person can exist in both a real and a virtual reality. Today people of ages ranging from toddlers to grandparents experience VR and AR via Oculus and other hardware; and again, right at home!
You get the point. Let’s flash forward to today and look back over the past 15 years where literally trillions of dollars have been lost to cyberattacks. There are no attack surfaces that are safe, from Industrial Control Systems, web apps, servers, to even game consoles. In recent news, more than $600M in cryptocurrency was stolen in a single video game hack.
What is the Hackerverse? Life, the Universe, and Everything… hacked. The fact is, we are now and have been living in the Hackerverse. Our everyday realities are becoming more virtual, as protocol upon protocol and layer upon layer of abstraction are stacked upon each other.
The more dependent we and our companies become on our virtual reality the more susceptible we’ll be to malicious hackers. From “War Games” to “Ready Player One,” the question, “Shall we play a game?” is as ominous today as it was in 1983. The Hackerverse is ever-present and whether you choose to play or not, you are already in the game.Virtual

##What We Do
We host monthly interactive webinars focused on actionable advice that helps our members achieve their career and leadership goals. We want our audience to walk away from our events ready to implement the new things they learned so they can lead better, advance their careers, and stun their colleagues with their success and general business genius-ness.
##Speaking With Us
We want our speakers to have an excellent experience working with us. We work one-on-one with our speakers to produce high-quality talks that our audience loves. That means we'll pair you up with our Speaker Coach and help you craft your WIMDI Interactive Webinar into a thing of beauty that you can use again and again. We'll also record your talk and release it on our free YouTube channel so you get continued exposure after the event (and psst...you can use the recording to market your talk going forward! Amazing!)
We work with new and experienced speakers alike. Our WIMDI audience is amazing and supportive, so if you're afraid of getting boo'd off stage as a newbie speaker, no need to stress! We'll make sure we're cheering you on and helping you shine regardless of experience level. If you've got something interesting to say about career or leadership, then we're interested in hearing from you!
