Gerd Leonhard: The Next Decade in Manufacturing

In our new podcast episode, we are talking to Gerd Leonhard on what the next decade in manufacturing will look like!

“People, Planet, Purpose and Prosperity” – this is the motto of Gerd Leonhard, a world-leading keynote speaker and futurist who is helping millions of people to “imagine and create a better tomorrow.”

Through hundreds of conference keynotes, presentations, and speeches over the years and working with the likes of Microsoft, NBC, Visa, Google, the European Commission, and IBM, Gerd has become one of the leading voices on the dangers of unregulated ‘big tech’ and the possibility of a better, more human-centric tomorrow.

As the bestselling author of “Technology vs Humanity: The Coming Clash Between Man and Machine”, a Forbes columnist, and frequent contributor and interviewee on the likes of the BBC, The Guardian, CNN, Harvard Business Review, and Business Insider, Gerd has built a name for himself as ‘the humanist futurist,’ leading to him being named to Wired UK’s 100 Most Influential Europeans in 2015 and #7 in the global ranking of futurists.

Since 2020, Gerd has further developed his uniquely immersive ‘keynote television’ style and has quickly become one the most popular virtual keynote presenters worldwide. Gerd is also a former professional musician, a critically acclaimed film-maker and producer,  a successfully failed .com paper-millionaire, a fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts (London), and a Visiting Professor at the Fundação Dom Cabral in Brazil.
