GERD LEONHARD: LEADING VIRTUAL KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Supercharge Your Next Virtual Event or Online Conference with Futurist Gerd Leonhard

There are many reasons to be hopeful about 2021 but deep uncertainty and confusion prevail. It often feels like we’ve lost the plot on what was once ‘normal’ or ‘business as usual‘ before Covid-19. There is a lot of questioning and reckoning, from climate change and decarbonisation to capitalism, globalisation and multilateralism. We are entering a decade of deep transformation, and increased ‘future-readiness‘ will be crucial.

Now more than ever before, every organisation needs to keep talking to its people as well as its stakeholders, clients, customers and partners, while constantly up-skilling its leaders and its workforce. 

This is where Gerd comes in. Since dominating the pre-pandemic conference stages around the globe and working with the likes of Microsoft, Audi, Lego, Mastercard, DELL Technologies, UBS, Electronic Arts, the European Commission, and many more Fortune 500 companies, governments and NGOs, his industry-defining presentations and commitment to digital excellence has allowed him to become the world’s leading virtual speaker and presenter for those organizations that look not only to survive but to thrive despite the Corona-Crisis and beyond.

Our Post-Corona Future: Gerd’s Most Popular Keynote

Has your life, your industry, your business or your organisation been painfully and irreversibly upended by the Covid-19 crisis, as well? Are you sometimes struggling to stay positive, remain relevant, trying to redesign your future in this utterly uncertain time? Are you trying to boost your resilience or scanning for hope during these difficult times?

The bottom line is that we are not going back to “normal” but that we are heading towards a series of ‘new normals’.  Business as usual is quickly fading away, and a strange kind of permanent VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity) is here. Amidst and maybe even because of all these challenges, Gerd believes that we can find our way into a Good Future – if we question our assumptions and discover new possibilities. The organisations that can rapidly adapt (and pivot, if needed) will survive and thrive. Resilience, collaboration, agility and creativity will replace efficiency as the key objective as we are morphing from functioning to creating, from KPI to KHI.

While the consequences of the Corona Crisis have been devastating to many (but not all) of us, our businesses or organisations, they have also created an incredibly unique opportunity for what Gerd calls a ‘strange kind of golden age‘ resulting from this great transformation. This is a time for reinvention and for change; a time to take bold risks and reap the rewards, a time to reinvent and daring to be different, a time when dramatic crisis generates radical reinvention.

FUTURIST AND VIRTUAL SPEAKER

Gerd offers many virtual engagement options:

  1. An online event or conference with all speakers and all audience members participating remotely (i.e. there is no real-life audience or physical 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 or hybrid conference in a physical location, with Gerd contributing a bespoke keynote remotely (using Zoom, Google Meet, Webex, MSFT Teams, Crowdcast, Vimeo Live, Hopin or any other preferred platform).
  3. A pre-recorded, bespoke and custom-produced keynote on a specified topic that is presented 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).
