Keran's bio:

Keran is a self-confessed geek who is fascinated by new technology and how it is transforming the way we live, work and play. He often looks to his children growing up in a tech-centric world – and how what used to be innovative business tools are now kids toys.

He is the Futurist-in-Residence at cloud-based accounting software provider MYOB. Keran is dedicated to helping businesses – small to large – achieve success by embracing new ideas and new technologies.

His previous career spans a number of senior management positions within the tech and telecommunications sectors, driving API and add-on ecosystems as well as cloud technology across Trans-Tasman markets.

Keran is an engaging speaker who talks focus on how artificial intelligence, blockchain and automation are revolutionising the face of business.


The enormous growth in computing power, automation and connectivity has given rise to fears that technology will take over our jobs and even our lives. But in reality, the future is much more likely to see developments such as these support and enhance everything we do – and nowhere is this more likely to be seen than in business.

MYOB Futurist-in-Residence Keran McKenzie, is dedicated to helping businesses – small to large – embrace new ideas and new technologies. He drives MYOB’s API and add-on ecosystems and supports its cloud technology strategy, to provide local business owners with a range of easy-to-use and cost-effective online tools that help them simplify success.
