Generally acknowledged as being one of the funniest and most perceptive speakers in health care, Ian is an internationally known author, consultant and futurist. He was President at Institute for the Future in the 1990s, founded the Strategic Health Perspectives service, and is in more health care board rooms and conference halls that almost anyone. At Health 2.0 Ian will share his latest insights into the future of health care — and yes, he used to be Matthew Holt’s boss and never minded lending out his jokes. Matthew’s still telling them.

Matthew Holt, Co-Chairman, @boltyboy, spent the 1990s learning from the best to be a health care futurist at Institute for the Future, and a survey researcher at Harris Interactive. In the early 2000s he spent time at a PHR start-up, but since he’s been the Founder of (and now occasional author on) The Health Care Blog, and co-founder of the Health 2.0 Conference–roles for which he was mostly self-taught!
