We have to look into the past if we hope to understand the present or anticipate the future. Sometimes you need to do more than just imagine what’s going to happen. Sometimes you need to know. If you need to make decisions that prepare your company for the changes looming over your industry, preempt a new policy, or keep you ahead of the next few years of technological development, you need an expert.

Our speakers on futurism and technology will help you understand where the world is going and what the latest trends are. More importantly, they’ll help you understand why those changes are happening. If you’ve ever felt that it’s difficult keeping pace with accelerating technological development, or that the present is slipping out of your hands, it might be time to talk to someone in the know. Sometimes, the best way to approach the future is to welcome it, and to listen to the experts and gurus who know how to prepare for what is to come.

Our speakers can address the tremendous ethical and economic challenges posed by artificial intelligence and its impact on the future of work. They can describe the transformation of urban metropolises into Smart Cities, the data-driven evolution of 21st-century businesses, the changing nature of leadership, the motivation and retention of millennial consumers, and the exponential growth of disruptive technologies that will affect all of our lives. And that’s just an introductory sampling; their expertise covers the full range of topics in futurism and technological development.

We might not be able to predict the future in its entirety, but Aurum’s speakers are specialized and prepared to discuss upcoming developments in their fields. They offer a trip to the future without leaving the present, a visit to a tomorrow still full of questions. They are people like Michio Kaku, the world-renowned theoretical physicist and best-selling futurist who has correctly predicted the technological changes on more than one occasion. They include Parag Khanna, geo-strategic leader and expert on the future of cities and the growing impact of Asian countries on the global economy, and Justine Cassell, a leader in the implementation of emotional intelligence in AI. They and their rivals, peers, and colleagues are available to book from Aurum if you decide to organize your event with us.

If you want a talk that looks at the future of your organization or sector, and that offers the most expansive and critical view possible, look no further. Choose the speaker you’ve always dreamt of and our team will do the rest. When it comes to predicting the future, it’s always wisest to look to the best minds available.
