—Toby Walsh, professor of artificial intelligence and author of Machines That Think: The Future of Artificial Intelligence

—Lance Uggla, chairman and CEO, IHS Markit
“As technology reshapes and takes a bigger role in the workplace, the question ‘what makes you stand out?’ becomes more important than ever. The Robot in the Next Cubicle helps us understand the evolving workplace so that we can clearly define our place in it, remaining not only relevant but valued and recognized.” 
—William Arruda, personal-branding pioneer and cofounder of CareerBlast.TV

—Penny Power, OBE, serial entrepreneur and author of Digital Business Britain Manifesto and Know Me, Like Me, Follow Me
“The new technologies driving the Fourth Industrial Revolution require us to understand our places in a new world of machines that challenges us to be better humans. The Robot in the Next Cubicle puts this new paradigm into perspective. We no longer have the luxury of having separate professional and personal selves. We need to present and use all our gifts to succeed.”
—Javier Cámara Rica, founder and CEO at beBee
“Building a brand, whether for yourself or a business, takes time. The Robot in the Next Cubicle is a call to action to start building your brand so you can succeed rather than be disrupted in the coming technological revolution.”
—Brian Smith, UGG founder, and author of The Birth of a Brand: Launching Your Entrepreneurial Passion and Soul 
“Some of the greatest opportunities for success came during times of economic disruption. The Robot in the Next Cubicle sheds light on emerging technologies and shows us how people navigated past economic upheavals to achieve their success. No one said it would be easy, but knowing what’s coming, what to look for, and what you can do will make a big difference.”
—Dr. Greg S. Reid, author of the Think and Grow Rich series

“An examination of the rise of artificial intelligence and the role of humans in the future workplace. While Boyer clearly depicts the rise of automation, he also gives readers a refreshing guide on how to leverage their social skills to maintain relevancy and sanity.”
—Dan Schawbel, author of Back to Human, Promote Yourself, and Me 2.0
