Full biography of Dean van Leeuwen

Dean is the co-founder of TomorrowToday Global a futurist consultancy working with leading businesses around the world. He lectures on global trends, innovation and business transformation at Henley Business School, Säid Oxford Business School and CEDEP – the Centre for European Leadership Development at Fontainebleau. He has also worked with a Big Three strategy consultancy.

People have more impact creating rather than predicting the future. So, in everything Dean does, he believes in challenging people to use the power of business as a force for good. He says: “the world’s greatest problems are also the best opportunities for growth.” But a remarkable century will not just happen, we have to think and act big to create it. So, Dean is on a quest to inspire audiences to unlearn and relearn; mobilising them to use exponential technology, forge innovative solutions and deliver 10x the impact.

His deeply researched insights, engaging style and powerful combination of storytelling, multimedia and gentle parody, move audiences to look at a disrupted world differently, embrace change, innovate and do mighty things.

Dean van Leeuwen speaks to audiences about:

• Innovation
• Future trends
• Disruptive forces
• Leadership
• Transformation
• Customer and talent engagement

People look at the world differently after hearing Dean speak because he provides them with the skills, mindsets and tools to unlearn and relearn. His frameworks and presentations give people practical ways of thinking big and forging innovative solutions that deliver growth and remarkable results.
