A TED-talk on Steroids

top female futurist keynote speaker

Leading futurist and ecocentrist K D Adamson argues that the most important relationship we have is with the future, and the future has got stuck in the past. Pinpointing the cherished societal and business certainties set to be dismantled as an accelerating global syndemic distorts our understanding of intrinsic value she fundamentally reframes the future that could, and should, replace them.

A writer, film-maker, keynote and presenter whose performances have been likened to a TED talk on steroids, she is a global authority on the sustainable transformation of business and expert in future business value creation, organisational transformation, ESG, leadership and the blue, green and circular economies. Her stellar client list spans every industry and includes major global brands, multi-nationals, governments, non-profits and NGOs.

As one of the top-rated female futurist keynote speakers in the world K D is loved by audiences and organisers alike for the huge breadth of hot-button themes she covers, and her talent for distilling them into simple, powerful, concrete and accessible concepts for diverse attendees.

Her live performances are consistently described as inspirational and mindblowing by audiences who respond to her energy, humour, warmth and charisma on stage and are empowered by her insistence that they are capable of taking their future into their own hands.
