global keynote Speaker
Finding the best speaker for your event or your tribe is about more than expertise or demeanor. The ability to entertain in a deeper sense – to hold our attention – is critical. But there is something rarer still, and that is the power to move the audience into the experience – not to speak but to transport. From his days performing as a musician to his present status as one the world’s most prominent futurist speakers, Gerd Leonhard is a global presence at home in any culture or vertical, and capable of leaving his audiences in a completely different place. His keynotes, presentations and talks, interviews, workshops and seminar engagements are honed by thousands of hours’ experience and schooled in profound knowledge across the human arts and sciences.
Each of Gerd’s speaking engagements is customized to market, audience and immediate context – no two audiences have ever experienced the same Gerd. He is constantly learning and refining his vision and arguments, enriching his highly persuasive style with story dynamics that involve the audience at a deeper, more experiential level. Gerd’s vision is twofold: to present the multiple futures facing every industry or organisation at any one time, and – crucially – to help the participants identify and discover the true future which belongs to their unique destiny and backstory. In a world of often unimaginative plots, with many enterprises simply impersonating others, Gerd’s guidance is priceless.
Gerd offers keynote speeches in a wide variety of formats. Interventions, presentations and talks can range from 15 to 90 minutes (with or without slides). Gerd also offers longer ‘future-discovery’ sessions, workshops, seminars and some executive future-coaching, his latest corporate offering is The Futurizing Program. Gerd is also a film-maker and heads up all TFA Studio projects. He is also available for participation in fire-side chats, talk-shows, public debates and TV shows, and enjoys moderating events, as well.
His keynotes can also be delivered remotely, via video or telepresence. Gerd presents both in English as well as in German language.
Here are some suggested ways to engage Gerd:
a) a highly customised keynote presentation with a multimedia slideshow
b) a talk-only version, i.e. without any slides or images
c) a hard-hitting conversation, fireside-chat or interview-style session with a great moderator, professional host or fellow futurist
d) the unique ‘future show live’ format with a live VJ remixing images and videos during Gerd’s speech (limited to existing topics)

- An existing topic, but with unique customization of media, images and examples
- A new topic that is entirely unique to the engagement, designed from the bottom up (most costly)
- An existing topic delivered as pre-recorded presentation plus a remote video chat (often booked for a series of events)
