I’m represented by many of the most prestigious and hard-working speakers bureaus in the world – the same folks who represent Barack and Michelle Obama, George W. Bush and Colin Powell, Richard Branson, and others. I regularly work to keep them up to date on things that are impacting our world.
With that in mind, I just rolled out an email update to them. It summarizes many of the things I am doing and sharing and so it is worthwhile to share here!
Here’s another one in a series of infrequent updates I put together to keep you informed of our mutual opportunities as we go forward in this crazy new world.
I’m pretty certain that you are seeing new signs of optimism in the economy, with the people around you, and in the industry, we work. It’s kind of nice! Here’s hoping!
I’m seeing it too – particularly in the number of leadership queries around post-Covid trends, and our eventual post-pandemic future. With that in mind, here’s an update on 5 key areas of mutual interest:
- post-pandemic keynote topics
- a new post-pandemic trends video
- short, sharp shocks of video insight
- virtual studio – behind the scenes
- my powerful new video series, Ask a Futurist!
1. Post-Covid, Post-Pandemic Keynote Topics
It’s pretty clear that most organizations have spent the last year in a brutal form of strategic triage – but I’m getting a sense that they are now starting to think about what’s next.’
I can tell by the speaking queries.
*Most* of my business over the last decade was skewing heavily to the global corporate leadership event market – clients like Disney, Johnson and Johnson, Mercedes Benz. It’s interesting to note that Pfizer had me in Paris for a global leadership meeting just a few months before Covid – and my key message was the ability of organizations to respond at speed in the face of relenting change. I sort of nailed it, I suppose.;
And so I’ve got a number of keynote topics that reflect the thinking behind the queries. There is a full-page and topic description that goes with each one; you might consider them for my page on your site since it will align with what your clients are looking for.

5. Ask a Futurist!
Last but not least, I’ve launched a new video series – Ask a Futurist! Details are at:

I’ve got a number of new potential topics this week and will finalize one on Wednesday, and will hit my virtual steudi9o to film a short clip
