Most futurists increase your sense of panic and anxiety with dystopian images of the not-too-distant future characterised by Artificial Intelligence (AI) taking your job, algorithms hacking your most private moments and Austrian-accented cyborgs raising your children, “Get to the minivan!!!” The real issue is, trends only tell half the story. Data isn’t the answer, it’s input.
Dan Gregory is an author, speaker, futurist and social commentator. A thought leader in the field of strategic insights, Dan helps leaders and teams explore critical trends in search of opportunities, to identify the meaning behind the data and turn information into actionable strategies. In short, Dan helps you READ and LEAD change.
Rated in “the top 25 C-Suite Speakers to watch” by Meetings & Conventions USA, Dan Gregory is a captivating speaker whose business acumen is matched by a rapier wit and rare human insight gained during three years on the road working on the US and UK stand-up comedy circuits – skills put to great use in front of millions of viewers as a regular on ABC TV’s “Gruen Planet” and Channel 7’s “Masters of Spin”.
The guiding questions behind all of Dan’s work are, “What does it all mean?” and critcally, “How is it useful?” Questions that have helped him create leadership strategies for global technology firms, design performance strategies for sales teams and C-Suite executives and drive engagement strategies for organisations as diverse as Coca-Cola, Newscorp., the Royal Australian Navy and the UN in Asia.
