For many, the metaverse is a mysterious, far-off land.

Companies are making some big bets on the metaverse’s future, including Facebook‘s name change to Meta. Why? What do companies like Meta and others see? Learn from our TIGER Talk presenter, Ryan Frederick.

Ryan will explain why his firm, AWH, started working virtually in the metaverse, why some aspects of the metaverse will have significant value, and why other aspects are likely never to live up to the hype!


Ryan Frederick is a strategist, technologist, speaker, and author. Ryan is a Principal at the technology consulting firm AWH. Ryan is also a strategy guide with the strategy consulting firm Simply Strategic. Ryan is the author of two books about starting and leading companies: The Founder’s Manual and Sell Naked.
