'Theo is a man on a mission, he knows his stuff inside out and when he opens his mouth, you really ought to sit up and listen."
I've had the pleasure of appearing at some of the biggest conferences, and at smaller, more intimate corporate events, delivering keynote talks to events ranging from 20 to 2,000 attendees. I've been part of panels, moderated discussions and chaired conferences across the World from the USA, Peru, Australia, Dubai, and Germany, to Thailand, the UK, Sweden, China, Malta, and South Africa.
I like to talk about emerging futures from an industry-agnostic perspective but also cover sectors including financial services, law, healthcare, government, space and more. One of my strengths is looking for the convergence of multiple trends and how they impact business and society - using a mix of science fiction, retrofuturism, hauntology and forecasting to shine a light on the art of the possible ahead and the impacts they bring.
Typically I'm sought after for;
Internal sales events, AGM's, GTM's and large annual client conferences.
Talking to smaller teams of people who need help with digital and business transformation.
Larger open events with tickets for sale, where I can kick off proceedings with a made to measure keynote talk.
Topic driven sessions. A focus on one area like how to understand the future in a more pragmatic way, or a focus on one area like business transformation, or innovation/creativity.
Please note that all engagements carry a speaker fee and do not include travel expenses. To enquire about availability and fees please use the booking link.
