GERD LEONHARD, LEADING VIRTUAL KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Virtual Keynotes and Remote Presentations

Gerd Leonhard is a top-rated and constantly innovating futurist, keynote speaker and presenter, both in real-life and on actual stages as well as in virtual or digital-only environments such as Zoom.  Presenting online or remotely is an entirely different cup of tea – and one that Gerd has been practicing since 2013, long before the Corona-Crisis and the global shift to ‘remote everything‘.

For his 100% digital talks (the speaker as well as the audience), 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, no more just ‘talking heads’, no more lengthy monologues 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.

Take a look at Gerd’s new 2020 #1 speaking topic With/Post-Corona Future hub, his other speaking topics or his latest book “Technology vs. Humanity”.

100% DIGITAL: the alternate future of conferences

..and yes, we'll return to meeting in-the-flesh, as well!

If you don’t have any experience with digital meetings or you don’t know if or how to take your event online, Gerd and his team of fellow futurists at The Futures Agency (TFA) are ready to assist you.

We offer turn-key solutions for agencies, brands, corporate clients, governments, organisations and individuals. We can put together entire programs for you, or we can take your existing event concepts and convert them to online formats, and of course we can simply do amazing remote keynotes for you. We also work with many leading speaking agencies around the world to jointly explore this new ecosystem.

Digital conferencing can also add a new life to event content, as critical learnings and insights build up into a unique library of knowledge, illumination, motivation and imagination, while reducing travel and health risks, lost productivity and CO2 output.

“As we move towards a more resilient planet both ecologically and in terms of public health, digital conferencing will rapidly become the new normal.” (Gerd Leonhard, CEO)

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).
