Gerd has spent over fifteen years exploring the future as he travels the world and joins the dots between tomorrow, today and yesterday, between technology and humanity, and between science fiction and science fact. Gerd’s network of future-related sites, resources and offerings, below, may be helpful for navigating this future.
The Futures Agency (TFA) is Gerd’s company (a Swiss LLC / GmbH), featuring 40+ like-minded futurists, authors and keynote speakers. TFA is Gerd’s main vehicle for ‘futurizing’ his clients, complemented by the StoriesFromTheFuture.tv creative team.
How would your abIlity to discover and navigate the future be transformed if you had a ‘spare mind’ to create the ideas, the events and the content at an exponential rate? The Futures Agency is a unique boutique designed to help you widen and accelerate the rate of change – by changing how you think and creating the powerful new narratives that will drive you to the next level of evolutionary development. Whether you are an incumbent market leader threatened by disruptive new technologies or a rising star still unsure how to integrate exponential change, Gerd Leonhard and his handpicked team of professional futurists, speakers and advisors will help you identify change before it happens, craft new visions and manifest deep transformation.
Film is the most universal idiom of modern communication, and returns us to the original visual language of mankind. No other medium has the ability to cross borders and cultures so seamlessly. Film is also the best way possible to capture the future in all its dynamic difference and complexity. Working in close collaboration with his artistic director, Jean-Francois Cardella, a pioneer in corporate video, Gerd Leonhard has now created a dedicated film unit to realize the growing client demand for one-off and episodic film stories to accompany transformational change journeys. These films can be embedded into your event program, strategic change initiatives and corporate learning curricula to raise awareness along client communities, sensitize workforces and trigger behavioral evolution across corporate silos.
The coming clash between machine and man will dwarf the last two hundred years of technology change. As computing moves from our desktop to our pocket to our wrist and ultimately inside our bodies, the very nature of humanity will be challenged and changed irreversibly unless we can conduct a much deeper discussion about ethics and responsibility right now. A last minute call to wake up from technology mania and address the unprecedented moral and tribal dilemmas now facing homo sapiens. Whether you see technology as a threat or a basically good thing, this book will blow your assumptions out of the window. If your take being human for granted, press Reset now with this passionately argued call to create a genuinely braver new world.
Gerd also offers speaking engagements that involve other futurists, in a bundled booking. The format includes 2 shorter keynotes by Gerd and his colleague, followed by a fire-side chat moderated by a suitable host. The following packages are currently available:
Gerd’s latest findings from the intersection of humanity and technology, focusing on Digital Ethics i.e. the ethics of exponential technological change and related Technology/Humanity topics.
