This is the complete 3 hours 30 minutes DVD edition of our 2007 Futuretalks sessions, moderated by Ralph Simon, with my futurist colleague Glen Hiemstra , discussing topics such as the future of media, advertising, privacy and much else. Interesting to note what has actually happened since 2007 and how accurate our foresights were or… weren’t 🙂


A big ‘thanks’ to Doug Kaye and Media Conversations for producing this DVD with us, and for making it available to the public.


NOTE: you can also watch or listen to these sessions individually by going here.

Author: Gerd Leonhard

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.
