As a futurist speaker, I have delivered keynote speeches and hosted conference sessions for large audiences and small, including:

What is a futurist speaker?

A futurist speaker analyses the trends, threats and opportunities in a particular sector to make and communicate our visions for the future.

The best futurist speakers draw on their own methods and research to deliver a customised, educational and inspiring session.

Naturally, I use the Tom Cheesewright method, otherwise known as ‘Intersections methodology’. Based on years of research, I’ll tailor my sessions to your industry, whether it’s a keynote session, interview or podcast.

Why choose a futurist?

A futurist keynote speaker, first and foremost, can help you address the biggest issues of tomorrow. You may have questions about innovations in your industry, and how this will affect the world of work.

Perhaps you want to look at the macro trends in your sector and further afield. With insights into the future of technology, finance, cities, business and culture, you’ll learn how to shape your strategies for the long term.

Find assurance in an unpredictable world of digital transformation. Discover a more sustainable way of life. Be prepared for what’s coming next.

I’ve had radio and television appearances on BBC Breakfast, Radio 4, Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch and much more. For insights from a trusted UK futurologist, get in touch.
