GERD LEONHARD – FUTURIST, HUMANIST

In the words of American poet John Berryman, “the possibility that has been overlooked is the future”. Most of us are far too busy coping with present challenges to explore the future in any depth – and when we do our own cravings and fears often run away with us, resulting in utopias or dystopias that are not very helpful in terms of planning and decisions. Today’s professionals, leaders and their organisations need a dedicated, passionate long-term understanding of the future if they are to successfully navigate the exponential waves of change. For countless individuals and organizations that intelligence is called Gerd Leonhard.

A musician by origin, Gerd connects left and right brains for a 360-degree coverage of the multiple futures that present themselves at any one time. Delivering the ‘Realopia’ that one can work on immediately, Gerd Leonhard coaches, consults and influences around the world. Turning futurism into a pragmatic science designed to reinforce strategic thinking, Gerd and his boutique The Futures Agency represent an additional mind for mastering the complex nodal points of change that dictate evolution or extinction in the Digital Age. ‘Technology vs. Humanity’, his newest work, reminds every one of us what is at stake as we enter a Faustian pact with the computing entities now serving us.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=” FUTURIZE YOUR BUSINESS” style=”flat” shape=”square” color=”orange” align=”left” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fbackup.futuristgerd.com%2Fchoices%2F|||”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” el_id=”videorow” css=”.vc_custom_1465937919642{background-color: #e2e2e2 !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/12″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”5/6″][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Arr6-eZc_n4″ css=”.vc_custom_1466090363388{margin-bottom: 23px !important;}”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1470381918685{margin-bottom: 23px !important;}”]
