Futurist Keynote Speakers. 20 secrets of ALL world's best keynote speakers. How to chose great keynote speakers for your events. Secrets of all top keynote speakers in world-class audience engagement. Change how people see, think, feel and behave

270,000 have watched this leadership keynote - live audience of 4500 executives 

How to create world-class events. Secrets of all great keynote speakers.

World-class conference keynote speakers create instant magic, energy, engagement and anticipation but are very rare. Awful keynote speakers are sadly very common, dreaded by audiences.

You can tell if a keynote speaker is going to shine in a couple of minutes.

With every great keynote speaker there's a powerful emotional and mental connection, a big stage presence, an energy which captivates, the whole auditorium lights up. Being a keynote speaker is not a logical or rational thing only.

Videos are a very poor tool to capture the experience of being part of a live audience that is being "worked" by a professional keynote speaker - most senior executives in large companies don't have world-class keynote speaker skills.

It's almost mystical - connection of one person with hundreds or thousands is the primary skill of all world-class keynote speakers.

Take hold of your future! How to make radical changes. Future of Work. Salt in the Blood: new book co-author Sheila Dixon. Our 11,000 mile adventure, sailing the Med, across Atlantic, working virtually, re-inventing our global business.Lessons for Leaders

ALL OF LIFE is a voyage to the future, carrying us beyond distant horizons, blown by the prevailing wind to which we set our sails.

"Many people will relate to this narrative....I commend this book."  Yachting Monthly

6 page feature published in Yachting World

You can read an extract on Google

Life Beyond COVID - millions of people are rethinking their own personal futures, what is important to them, careers, relationships and so on.

Seven years ago, as a pair of empty-nesters, Sheila and I embarked on a somewhat impulsive sailing odyssey, after more than three decades living in the same part of London. I was working at a frenetic pace, flying all over the world, advising global corporations on future trends, while Sheila was running our company, working as a magistrate, supporting a range of community projects, and holding everything else together. We were both very fulfilled, but exhausted.

We were looking to slow down a bit, develop new skills together, kickstart new business ideas, re-invent our future, broaden our minds, see if we could live more simply, and be rejuvenated. We hoped that what we learned at sea might help us sail better through life. But could we really take off into the sunset without wrecking our bank balances, neglecting family, weakening wider relationships, damaging our business, and risking many other things that really matter......?

Seize the day – or your future will take hold of you.

Future of Telcos - phone companies, next-generation telecommunications, winners and losers in post COVID global shakeout, mega-mergers, controlling the world's bandwidth and smartphone platforms, e-commerce and mobile payments - keynote speaker

Telcos had a massive boost from the COVID pandemic.  I work with many of the world's largest telcos. They all benefitted hugely from instant shift towards virtual work, virtual social life, virtual entertainment and virtual leisure. Huge increase in spending on personal bandwidth, increased use of personal devices. Huge increase in corporate spending on enterprise wide virtual working tools, upgrades of video conferencing equipment, upgrades in bandwidth with increased dependence on video

If we ever realised our total dependence on high bandwidth, it was at the moment that the world plunged into lockdown. Internet access or speed was no longer the issue, rather continuous, uninterrupted high bandwidth to allow high quality video links. However, the telco industry faced fundamental issues before COVID, and these issues remain.

Over 90% of all web traffic is now video in many developed nations - COVID just accelerated a long trend.  It is already the case in the UK that BBC iPlayer, NetFlix and YouTube alone account for more than 60% of the nation’s web traffic. A single 2-hour video is equivalent to a hundred million emails, or days of voice calls. So forget charging for voice or anything else – costs are dwarfed by streaming video. Data on mobiles will increase 1000 fold in the next 5 years, on 50 billion mobile devices connected to 5G, running at 10gps or higher. That means an entire high-definition movie will download in less than 3 seconds.  So telcos will be forced to focus on new kinds of business, for example cloud services for larger companies.

Future Health Care - medical Tourism - $40 billion a year industry, over 11 million people travelling to other nations for lower cost hospital treatments, dentistry or cosmetic surgery. Organ trafficking. Medical tourism will grow to $130bn by 2025.

A major trend in the future of health care is the boom in medical tourism. One way to reduce future health costs for individuals, insurers or government is to move patients abroad for treatment, and we will see a lot more of this in a world beyond COVID.

‘Medical tourism’ is already a $40bn industry, growing 20% a year, with over 11 million people annually travelling to another country for private treatment, and possibly convalescence in a nice hotel.  The market could be worth over $130bn by 2025. 

The savings in all types of medical tourism can be huge: private health care in Brazil is only 25% of the cost in America, India 73%, Mexico 50%, Thailand 65%, Turkey 60%. Within the EU itself there are also major cost differences – for example, dental treatment in Hungary is far cheaper than in Paris.

Future of Education - radical changes coming. Major rethink about how to prepare children and students for the next 30-50 years. Trends in High School education, Colleges, Universities, Business Schools and Post-Graduate Education. Keynote speaker

The COVID pandemic forced major changes in education, some of which will endure.  Over the next three decades, education will start younger in many nations than today.  Education outside the home for 3-5 year olds increased by 10% to 85% in OECD nations in the decade to 2016.  This will be driven by two-career parents, and by research showing how important early learning is to later success.

School and college is all about preparing a new generation for their own future. In many cases, we will be educating for jobs that have yet to be invented, but most teaching is locked into the past, training for tasks that no longer exist. 

Take examinations: how absurd to force young people to scribe indelible symbols onto pieces of paper, and to lock them into rooms without access to their digital brains. Cambridge University is considering allowing students to write exam papers on laptops, partly because examiners can’t read their terrible handwriting. Many other Universities have already started giving permission to write exams answers on computers if people have a disability which means that writing is difficult or impossible.  Yet handwriting in exams will still be the dominant mechanism for proving student knowledge by the year 2030 in almost every part of the world. Work means using keyboards, not pen and ink.

Future of Retail in Emerging Markets - Asia, Latin America, Africa - boom of chains and informal retailers. Impact of e-commerce and online marketing, and how traditional retail will survive - retail trends keynote speaker

From Uganda to Congo, India to Vietnam, we will continue to see an almost identical retail experience. Almost all shops in the whole world will continue to be the roughly the size of a single shipping container – never much wider or deeper or higher. One outlet next to another for mile after mile. COVID had no impact on this megatrend despite all the media hype.

Such shops, typically with brick walls and tin roofs, are often living rooms of families who own them, and bedrooms at night. Lit by a single light bulb, such stores have an almost identical range of products as ten or twenty other similar shops within a few hundred metres. We see clusters of clothes shops, clusters of metal working shops, clusters of furniture shops. The most important rule in retail location has always been co-opetition. And this will be as true in the slums of a megacity as on the streets of Paris or New York. Jewellers will continue to cluster, fish sellers will cluster. Retail clustering will dominate physical retail globally for the next 100 years.

Malls will take off in all emerging markets. At the same time, expect growth in top-down mass-retailing in emerging markets, despite e-commerce. Big companies will invade a completely new area where there has never been a single store a fraction of the size before. The first mall in a new area will usually be relatively informal, not air-conditioned, housing smaller shops. And then premium malls will follow, identical in many ways to malls in Europe, Singapore, Beijing and North America.

Are robots really about to take over the world? Why sales of robots have grown slowly. Future of AI / Artificial intelligence. Impact of robots and automation on jobs / unemployment and economic growth - robotics and AI keynote speaker

Despite all the talk of robots taking over most menial jobs and putting tens of millions out of work, the growth of robots in factories has been slow – up from 92,000 to a mere 387,000 a year from 2000 to 2017. A third of that increase was in 2017. Compare this to growth of smartphones, for instance, and the pace is still snail-like. Sales of such robots are likely to increase by around 10-15% a year – mostly confined to the auto industry, which owns most robots in America. Robots will become cheaper and more intelligent, but smaller models will still cost over $20,000 each in 2020.

Expect rapid growth in military robots – with tens of thousands of drones owned by the Pentagon alone, raising the prospect of swarms of small, semi-autonomous flying robots being thrown into the air above a major battle zone. “Suicide drones” will soon be available on the open market, able to fly 80 miles an hour, to detonate explosives at any target 40 miles away.

Future of Global Trade, Logistics and Supply Chain Management- agility and risk. Scandal of empty containers and boom in regional trade v global. Reducing supply chain risks and disruptions from more global events like the COVID pandemic - keynote speaker

Manufacturing 4.0 is not enough, nor the hyper-connected world of Manufacturing 5.0. We need agility, rapid innovation and dynamic responses to major disruptions in supply chains and global chaos. That means having contingencies, back up plans, alternatives.

Yet in many ways, despite recent shocks, the fundamentals of successful logistics and supply chain management are still changing relatively slowly. 

For example, before COVID, moving a container 150km by lorry from Birmingham to Southampton cost the same as moving the same container 10,000km by sea from Southampton to Beijing. It is cheaper to transport melons from Istanbul to Naples than to drive melons from a village up in the Italian mountains, to the same market.  This overwhelmingly huge difference in sea freight costs compared to roads will be one of the single greatest drivers of future global trade, over the next 30-50 years, despite increased energy costs. It is the primary reason why global trade has grown at twice the rate of global production over the last 30 years...
