Members, Speakers and Collaborators

tfa header with ark

At TFA, we like to refer to our fellow futurists and speakers as members. All members are available for various TFA missions e.g. speaking engagements, workshops and group sessions, and in many cases also accept individual consulting or advisory assignments (please contact us for more details).

TFA also has many different kinds of collaborators who work with us on a case by case basis. Our members/speakers and collaborators are the very best in their fields. They know how to communicate with a wide variety of clients from different cultures, age groups and industry segments, and include some of CEO Gerd Leonhard‘s long-time and trusted collaborators. In addition, they all are really great people, and we think you will enjoy working with them! Watch best-of TFA members clips in a playlist on
