Phillip Koblence and Nabeel Mahmood, co-hosts of the Nomad Futurist Podcast are presenting on the Data Center World Live Stage on Wednesday August 18, 2021 at 1:30 PM EST. The duo will share their vision and mission of the Nomad Futurist Podcast and its Foundation. During the course of the conference, they will be recording their unique brand of podcast interviews, an entertaining vision of change, blending technology, economics, demographics, culture, and human psychology, with a fascinating cross-section of technology leaders attending Data Center World. 

Phil and Nabeel created the podcast to shed light on the world of critical infrastructure and attract new talent to the space. Since inception in early 2020, over thirty tech leaders from around the world have participated, many of whom were involved in the genesis and development of the industry. They share not only the innovative work they do but the fascinating personal journeys that brought them to where they are today, providing insights into a world that is not well understood and guidance for newer generations. Nomad Futurist is unique in that it avoids any commercial focus and homes in instead on the passion and excitement and diverse individual aspirations that led to career success and fulfillment.

As an extension of their passion to develop technology leadership, Phil and Nabeel are launching the Nomad Futurist Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization designed to empower and inspire younger generations through exposure to the underlying technologies that power our digital world. A key focus will be on launching global programs in partnership with a range of education providers, NGOs and other nonprofit organizations committed to educating children in underprivileged communities.
