Gerd Leonhard is a unique voice in today’s crowded futurist market. Not only does he take a distinctly pragmatic perspective on the future and avoids the pitfalls of prediction for the insights of actuality, Gerd teaches how the entire organization and the complete individual may futurize themselves, bringing together humanism and technology in a singular fusion. An early music pioneer of the internet, Gerd has evolved into an unmissable agent of positive change for corporates and public bodies of every size. His latest book, Technology vs. Humanity, outlines the present world’s most dramatic dilemma. Audiences treasure Gerd for his lucid talks, panoptic glances, his ironic take on events, and most of all his strategic recipes.EMAIL email@example.com
