Hosts: David Adler, Beth Kormanik
Guest: DJ Saul

In this episode of GatherGeeks, David Adler, C.E.O. of BizBash, and Beth Kormanik, editor in chief of BizBash, hear from DJ Saul, C.E.O. of iStrategyLabs, a full-service agency that specializes in the intersection of digital and experiential. Saul shares the ways his team dreams up tech-enabled experiences with specific brand messaging, and how to keep technology hidden so it doesn’t get in the way of that message. He also dives into the hottest tech right now—and what’s on the horizon—and what technology has reached its peak, then discusses the power of live gatherings in a social-media-obsessed world. Saul also shares his thoughts on IoT, AI, chatbots, blockchain, esports, facial recognition, and more.
