Kevin Mulcahy is a highly popular speaker on workplace trends, executive coach to senior executives, and curator of insights on shifts in the workplace and workforce for senior HR leaders at Cisco, GE, Microsoft, MasterCard, Qualcomm, Saint-Gobain and others. He presents globally on the shifts in expectations of employees, the role of new technologies in the workplace and the changing composition of the workforce. The essence of the insights and wisdom from his own and the experiences of co-author Jeanne C Meister are synthesized into their recently released book, The Future Workplace Experience.

Kevin co-curates ‘The Future Workplace Network', a membership community for HR executives to come together in person and virtually. Senior HR members gather several times a year to discuss, debate and share 'next' practices impacting the workplace and workforce of the future and the future of learning, communicating and working. Most of us have a workplace that is undergoing significant change from how we got our work done previously. Mulcahy is committed to helping talent leaders reimagine and rethink the convergence of the obvious and not so obvious trends reshaping our workplaces and workforces.

His career has spanned across various industries as a consultant, researcher, corporate strategist and company founder and CEO. He is a faculty member at Babson College and an executive coach at the Harvard Business School. Kevin lives in Boston, MA, USA.
