Shara Evans is an internationally acknowledged technology futurist, telecom industry expert, commentator, keynote speaker, strategy advisor and thought leader. With a hard technical background, she’s always had an interest in technologies and the way they shape business and the future.
But how did she go from computer science to futurism? When working in a corporate, Shara helped businesses navigate "this new thing" data networking, which became the internet.
"Clients were saying to me, hey Shara you’re actually giving us better advice than the big management consulting firms are. We’d like to work with you as a consultant," she explained. "So I took on board and, in 1997, I started my first company, which is actually still going now."
Telsyte, which Evans founded and ran as managing director from 1997 to 2005, was bought from her by a publicly listed company. She then went on to found and run, Market Clarity, an award-winning technology analyst firm, where she is still currently CEO. But in 2017, perhaps responding to a widespread shift towards personalization, Evans began speaking under her own, personal brand.
