The end of the year is always a good time to review and reflect upon what worked well, and what did not, so here are those slides, memes and topics that repeatedly struck a chord with my audiences in 2015, covering topics such as artificial intelligence, automation and the future of human work, the challenges of abundance, humarithms vs algorithms, technology versus/with humanity and many more. Most of the related presentations can be downloaded via this blog, of course, or via my public cloud.

In the words of American poet John Berryman, “the possibility that has been overlooked is the future”. Most of us are far too busy coping with present challenges to explore the future in any depth – and when we do our own cravings and fears often run away with us, resulting in utopias or dystopias that are not very helpful in terms of planning and decisions. Today’s professionals, leaders and their organisations need a dedicated, passionate long-term understanding of the future if they are to successfully navigate the exponential waves of change. For countless individuals and organizations that intelligence is called Gerd Leonhard.
