“Gerd was our leading keynote speaker at the Visionaries and Leaders forum “Steering Education: From Imagination to Impact” in Riga, Latvia. With his help, we set the tradition to look at and debate our education challenges at the highest visionary and futuristic level. He offered us an outstanding and absolutely inspirational new mindset-changing perspective for the future of education, focusing on the next 10 years' vision. Gerd’s keynote moved and shacked our educators' and politicians' audience by proposing to rethink the main aspects of work and revolutionize education in the light of high-tech development versus humanity. A lot of inspiration!”

“In our Annual Meeting, we had Gerd with us (virtually). This meeting's motto was “It is up to you”, looking forward to BA Glass future. It was fundamental to count on Gerd participation to take us into the Future. Gerd did an exciting presentation around the opportunities and risks we have in hand, reminding us that asking “how the Future will be?” is the wrong question. “The Future will be what we will make of it!”, he wisely said. Thank you Gerd, for your enormous inspiration.”

“Gerd allows the audience to travel to and from the future. The result remains long after the conference, when you rewind his presentations after a few years, and see it happening in front of your eyes.

Gerd is a pleasure to work with, and I highly recommend his services.”
