Interview with Gerd Leonhard

In this interview with A-Speakers, Gerd Leonhard answers questions about his keynotes, where he would like to be and about what inspires him. Read more below.

What is the message you hope people take away from your presentations?

Nobody can wait for the future – everyone creates his / her own, either way. It wasn’t raining when Noah build the ark: foresights are crucial, so spend some time on it every day. For each presentation I hope that people remember at least one of my key memes (see http://tweets.mediafuturist.com/topics/memes)


How are your keynotes unique?

I use very high quality images and the latest graphics, stats, resources, videos. I like to employ multimedia storytelling tools and some humor. I don’t follow a script – every talk is different


How do you see the world of social media evolving over the next 10 years?

We are heading into a Social OS (Operating System), ‘social is the new online’ i.e. just a default — like mobile:)


Who or what inspires you most?

  • Honest talks that push the envelope
  • Great writers (see my list of books here http://gerd.fm/kindleshares )
  • Traveling !


What types of audiences gain most from your keynotes?

Many different ones, from creatives to businesses to governments.


If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you go and why?

San Francisco Bay Area – it’s my 2nd home, followed by Bali – the best place to rethink everything:==)
