Keynotes, Presentations, Workshops & Interviews

“The future is already here – it’s just not very evenly distributed”

Greetings from Switzerland!

I offer keynote speeches in a wide variety of formats, interventions and provocations, presentations and talks ranging from 18 to 90 minutes (with or without visual materials) as well as longer ‘future-discovery’ sessions, workshops, seminars and executive coaching. I am also available for participation in fire-side chats, talk-shows, public debates and TV shows.

Omid AshtariStrategic Partnership Development“On the flip side of technology and business, I like to talk about the human experience. Gerd is a great speaker and has a lot of visionary ideas to share. I would call him a true web and media expert who analyzes trends and their future impact. His works are very enjoyable reads and full of interesting information. Above all Gerd is a very fun person to work and spend time with.”

Luke UpchurchHead of Communications and External Affairs“Gerd Leonhard is an exceptional speaker with a brilliant insight into our shared future. Gerd recently took up my offer to speak as the closing keynote of the Consumers International World Congress, where he delivered one of the most memorable speeches the global consumer movement has ever received. The clarity of his vision of a networked future, and the compelling way in which he delivers that vision provided a fitting climax to the event – one which consumer leaders from across the world thoroughly appreciated.”
Jeroen MatserStrategy Director“Gerd brings a lot of inspiration, energy, insightful thinking and a great amount of experience into businesses that operate in today’s challenging and complex digital landscape. Gerd is a rare breed that lives and breathes (web)technology and manoeuvres comfortably in the ever changing world of social media.”

Jens Pape Vice President Online“Need a mindshift in your company? Need to understand how future markets will influence the telco industry? You need to talk to Gerd Leonhard. He held a very inspiring Key Note Speak and the audience got the message. 5 stars for Gerd.”
Richard McLellan Director, Footprint“WWF International staff had the pleasure of listening to Gerd as a keynote speaker during the 2013 Learning Week this week – when he addressed the topic of moving “From conversation to conservation action”. I know that everyone in the audience found Gerd to be inspiring, informative and challenging, and wanting more. Delivered in a punchy and dynamic “TED” style, Gerd’s talk catalysed much discussion after the talk, and since, and generated a thirst for further interaction. I, for one, am looking forward to further opportunities to hear his thoughts on moving “from ego to eco.”
