Praise for Oliver Luckett...

  • “[Oliver’s] exploration of social media goes far beyond a recipe for clicks and ‘likes’ and presents a deeply convincing theory of how life is changing in the digital age, and how you can use social media not only to transform your business but to help change the world.”

    –Arianna Huffington


Oliver Luckett: Speech Topics


① The Social Organism


As co-founder of three multi-million dollar start-ups, Oliver Luckett is frequently asked to speak on social media's impact on today’s world. But how, he used to wonder, could he best describe the interactions of millions of users, a complicated system of human connections? While hiking one day, Oliver had a flashback to his days as a microbiology lab rat--and a resulting epiphany: Social media is an organism; a living, breathing, evolving creature. The theory of The Social Organism was born.

Leveraging the seven rules of sustainable biology as a metaphor for social culture, Oliver breaks down his revolutionary theory of social networks and how they mimic an actual biological system. Through personal experience, one-of-a-kind stories, tangible expertise (and yes, science), the theory of The Social Organism will illuminate how social media functions on a global scale with human culture evolving in tandem, and how to best harness this knowledge to gain competitive edge and master social media in both business and in life.
