Chief envisioning officer


Dave Coplin said he told his mum that one day he would be the “chief executive of a big company,” today he is chief envisioning officer at Microsoft.

Since joining Microsoft in 2005, he has worked across a wide range of industries and customers, providing strategic advice around the impact of technology on a modern society both at work and in play.

Coplin has said his mission is to “make people reconsider their relationship with tech, and how it can help them change what they do rather than simply do the same old things a bit better.”

Before joining Microsoft, Dave spent 13 years delivering IT strategy and solutions within the professional services industry in the UK, Canada and the Netherlands.
