Farid Tabarki's 2022 biography

Farid Tabarki is a sought-after international keynote speaker and conference moderator. He makes connections that surprise his various audiences: he may explain how CEOs can learn from Rihanna’s song ‘Diamonds’ or a bank manager from philosopher Peter Sloterdijk. He captivates his audience by embedding a strong vision for the future in the current reality for his client.

Farid, who has a Tunisian father and a Dutch mother, possesses passports of the countries of both parents. He has sought for his true identity and found it in world citizenship. As a logical consequence, he is an avid traveller, keen on visiting all countries of the world. The counter now stands at 132 countries.

Farid presented various television programs: MTV Coolpolitics in 2011 and 2012, and the philosophical programme ‘Dare to Think, from Socrates to Sartre’ for Human in 2013. He regularly publishes articles in books and magazines, and has been a columnist for Dutch daily newspaper Het Financieele Dagblad since 2013.

In 2012, Farid was awarded the title of Trendwatcher of the Year 2012-2013. The jury report states: ‘Farid impresses, with his mix of clients and his broad international orientation. He stands for quality and transparency and despite the serious content, he manages to present that on a smooth and witty way. He certainly can be seen as a shining and passionate driver in professionalisation of the sector trend watching.’

In 2013, Dutch daily newspaper De Volkskrant included Farid in the top-200 of the most influential people in the Netherlands as the youngest on the list. He appeared on the same list one year later, one place higher.

Next to researching and presenting, Farid takes an active role in bringing about change. He’s deputy chairman of the Supervisory Board of Het Nieuwe Instituut for architecture, design and e-culture; member of the Board of Curators of De Baak, a training and knowledge institute affiliated with the Confederation of Netherlands Industry and Employers, and member of Platform Education2032, commissioned by the Dutch government to formulate the framework of a future curriculum for primary and secondary education.

His first book, ‘The End of the Middle – what a society of extremes means for people, companies and states’ appeared earlier this year. In the book, Farid gives a vivid account of megatrends he sees in business and society as a whole: radical transparency, radical decentralisation and the liquid society. One of the main drivers is technological development, enabling all three of these megatrends. His book addresses the consequences of these massive changes for business, civil society, education and the individual.

Keynotes by Farid Tabarki will always encompass an enthralling vision for the future, tailored to the audience he is addressing.
