Gerd Leonhard

Gerd Leonhard is a global citizen of the future who spends his life travelling through worldwide meetings, workshops and conferences on transformational change. A star speaker on topics of major strategic importance – from digital disruption to business remodeling to specific vertical scenarios across public and private sectors – Gerd is a rare hybrid of artist and scientist, with a pioneering background in digital music ecosystems and a head start in the disruption game. “I’ve been a Futurist for more than 15 years, with more than 1500 engagements for over 800 clients in 50+ countries, and an estimated global audience of 1.5 Million people. I focus on 5- to 10-year future scenarios, yet my work is becoming increasingly ‘nowist’, i.e. about the here-and-now, because ‘the future is already here – it’s just unevenly distributed’ (William Gibson). My main theme is the future of technology and humanity.”
