Technology Futurist & Author
Costa stands out as one of the few female technology futurists in the world today. As an award-winning sociobiologist, she brings a deeply human perspective to discussions of technology, disruption and change. Her work has been featured in The New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today and other leading publications. Costa is the leading expert on "fast adaptation" in complex environments and the founder and CEO of one of the largest technology marketing firms in Silicon Valley, Costa developed a track record of introducing disruptive new technologies. Her clients included industry game-changers such as Hewlett-Packard, Apple, Oracle, Siebel Systems, 3M, and GE. Following the sale of her company, Costa spent six years researching and writing the international bestseller “The Watchman's Rattle: A Radical New Theory of Collapse,” followed by “On the Verge,” which hit bookstores in 2017. She brings a futurist's eye, a business executive's savvy, and an author’s storytelling skills to the stage, leaving audiences with actionable insights they can use in their work and life.
