the power of live

For millennia, human beings have used the power of stories to share knowledge and ideas. Most often, stories were used to pass on knowledge gleaned from the past, but they are just as powerful for sharing lessons from the future. Perhaps more than my expertise as a futurist, it’s my passion for storytelling that sets me apart. I love nothing more than crafting and sharing stories that challenge our understanding of the present, and leave a legacy of learning about the future.

As a keynote speaker, I’ve always been inspired by the live music acts and their ability to bring an audience together. To me, live music has always been about more than just the music; it’s about creating a multi-sensory experience that the audience will never forget.
Over the last few years, I’ve increasingly brought this approach into my keynote presentations. Using the same cutting edge video and sound mixing tools used by the world’s biggest live acts, and combining it with little moments of joy (such as home baked, AI designed biscuits), I aim to create immersive and unique experiences that are impossible to replicate in a virtual world.
