with Gerd Leonhard
TheFutureShow (TFS) is a new, cross-media entertainment format available in 2 versions: 1) a live, real-time and digital-only show using a large and scaleable webinar / meeting platform (such as Zoom, Vimeo or Crowdcast), combined with live-streaming on Youtube or any social network, or 2) a digital show that is not presented live yet produced 100% virtually (with all guests and the audience appearing via video, remotely), designed for global distribution on OTT premium content platforms.
TFS is produced in Gerd‘s virtual studio, combining the unique features of online meetings, remote interviews and virtual conferences with a asynchronous TV-talkshow concept and a futuristic interactive media approach, integrating polls, animations, social media streams, video clips, game components and AR/VR/MR explorations. TFS offers exciting new possibilities that transcend the traditional limitations of both television and the internet.
Episodes can be produced in as little as 4 weeks, allowing for easy inclusion of current topics.
TFS is created, hosted and anchored by Gerd Leonhard, top-rated global futurist, author and film-maker, and co-produced by his company, The Futures Agency in Zurich, Switzerland. Gerd has gathered deep experience as moderator, host, anchor, keynote speaker, producer and director during the past 20 years; with 1500+ keynotes in 50+ countries Gerd’s audience is estimated at over 2.5 Million people.
Gerd and his team have developed substantial experience and know-how in online-event and media productions in the past 5 years. For further context please visit TheConference.Digital and Gerd’s film site, or visit Gerd’s Youtube channel www.gerdtube.com (virtual keynote session are here).
“The future does not just happen to us – we create it every day, ourselves”
“The future is already here – we just haven’t paid enough attention!”

Each TFS episode is designed around a current and timely topic, and kicks off with Gerd’s unique cross-media introduction (a simplified preview can be found here and here). Gerd then introduces the guests; well-known personalities and thought-leaders that have been selected for their ability to quickly convey their views and debate interactively, using this new format. All guests participate virtually i.e. via remote audio / video or in VR.
Up to 5 people per episode will be invited and each guest has 3 minutes to deliver their opening statement or intervention using a direct video link to Gerd and his virtual studio team. Debates will also be recorded, and select audience members can be invited to join with audio or video statements, as well.
Episode duration: 30-40 minutes, monthly or bi-weekly.
Our guests will comment on these topics based on a 2-3 year horizon:
