Introducing Ankit Fadia 2.0

My relationship with Ankit Fadia is unique. I met Ankit and began working with him when he was just 22 years old. At the time, he was marketed as a young hacker and author who hosted a show on MTV India called What the Hack.


We booked him to speak across the globe giving presentations on computer security and computer hacking. One of the ways I described him at that time was “a Stanford drop-out who was spending time building his career through writing books and speaking.”

Ankit was set to graduate from Stanford in 2007 but dropped out in his senior year to pursue entrepreneurship in cybersecurity and went back to finish his degree in the fall of 2013, graduating in 2014. After graduation, he landed a job with the renowned global management consulting firm McKinsey & Company.


After putting speaking on pause to focus on his prestigious consulting career, we are excited to announce that Ankit is back to accepting speaking engagements and even more excited to launch what we are calling Ankit Fadia 2.0.

With over eight years of consulting with a world-class firm, Ankit returns to the stage now with more data, research, and firsthand experience of working with large organizations around the world to back his brand new content than ever before. 


In his two new talks, Ankit provides a unique perspective on productively and practically utilizing Generative Artificial Intelligence (GenAI). Read more about his new keynotes below.
