ONE OF THE TOP 100 MOST INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE IN EUROPE

Gerd Leonhard is a world-leading keynote speaker and futurist focused on “People, Planet, Purpose and Prosperity,” helping Millions of people to “imagine and create a better tomorrow.”  Through hundreds of conference keynotes, presentations, and speeches over the years and working with the likes of Microsoft, NBC, Visa, Google, the European Commission, and IBM, Gerd has become one of the leading voices on the dangers of unregulated ‘big tech’ and the possibility of a better, more human-centric tomorrow.

As the bestselling author of Technology vs Humanity: The Coming Clash Between Man and Machine, a Forbes columnist, and frequent contributor and interviewee on the likes of the BBC, The Guardian, CNN, Harvard Business Review, and Business Insider, Gerd has built a name for himself as ‘the humanist futurist,’ leading to him being named to Wired UK’s 100 Most Influential Europeans in 2015.
