GERD LEONHARD, LEADING VIRTUAL KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Virtual Keynotes, Remote Presentations & Digital Conferences

Gerd Leonhard is a top-rated and constantly innovating futurist, keynote speaker and presenter, both in real-life and on real stages as well as in virtual or digital-only environments such as Zoom.  Presenting online or remotely may be the new normal, now, but it is actually quite different than keynoting for ‘real life’ situations, and it requires entirely different skills (both in terms of technology, as well as in terms of content). Gerd has been honing his virtual presentations skills since 2015 – long before the current Corona-Crisis and the global shift to ‘remote everything‘.

For his virtual talks, Gerd is reinventing the very definition of keynote speaking, constantly adapting to this new medium: Less focus on the good old, linear-style keynote or powerpoint slides, less ‘talking heads’, less lengthy pontifications but hard-hitting and to-the-point content, deeply immersive and on-demand virtual backgrounds, a cinematic approach to virtual stage and event designs, a dazzling variety of live-interaction options with the audience and other speakers (q&a, polls, chats, shared media, live social media feeds, call-ins etc.) and overall a much shorter format with more focussed and entertaining content designed specifically for online audiences.

Virtual Keynotes and Hybrid Events are the Future.

- especially for large, international and high-profile events

… and Gerd as well as his colleagues and 50+ fellow futurists at The Futures Agency (TFA) are ready to assist you with amazing talks, program design and overall event expertise.

Virtual talks can also add a new angle to your event content, as critical learnings and insights build up into a unique library of knowledge and ideas, motivation and imagination, while reducing travel and health risks, lost productivity and CO2 output.

OUR WITH/POST CORONA FUTURE: GERD’S #1 VIRTUAL KEYNOTE TOPIC

“Only a crisis – actual or perceived – produces real change. When that crisis occurs, the actions that are taken depend on the ideas that are lying around” (Milton Friedman)

From Gerd’s recent post: 12 bullets with his key post-Corona foresights

1. Post-Corona, healthcare will once again become a public matter and responsibility, and the spread of privatized healthcare will be reversed. Investments in healthcare, particularly in bio-technologies, will skyrocket. Millions of new jobs will result. Complex ethical challenges will emerge, related to ‘big data’, tracking & surveillance, AI/IA and genome editing.

2. Post-Corona, the fossil fuel industries (oil, gas and coal) will rapidly become burning platforms, with divestment reaching record heights and and with a huge influx of new money going into sustainable energy, generating 10s of millions of new jobs.

3. Post-Corona, ‘Big-Tech’ will be even further entrenched in our daily habits and rituals, but will also be constantly challenged on its ethics, values and responsibilities. ‘Too-much-of-a-good-thing’ will be the key challenge and regulation debates will rage. Will it be humanity on-top of technology or should we ‘transcend human limitations‘?    READ ON

FUTURIST AND VIRTUAL SPEAKER

Gerd’s 3 virtual conference options:

  1. A 100% online conference with all speakers and all audience members participating online (i.e. there is no real-life audience, or venue). Gerd can provide a bespoke virtual keynote on these topics (among many others – please inquire), or a package with other great speakers led by him, or even host, moderate and guide the entire event for you.
  2. A real-life conference in a physical location, with Gerd contributing a bespoke keynote remotely (using Zoom, Webex, Crowdcast or Vimeo or any other preferred platform). This is often an affordable alternative for engaging Gerd in non-EU locations and for events where the budget might be too low for an in-person appearance)
  3. A pre-recorded, bespoke and custom-produced keynote on a specified topic that is presented as on HD-video formats at internal events or on the client’s intranet or via a special web-page (i.e. not real-time and online). This is often combined with a post-screening online q&a session (if desired).
