Futurist/Humanist Gerd Leonhard: the latest news

April 10 · Issue #18 · View online
Futurist and Humanist. Global Keynote Speaker. Author. Film-Maker. CEO of The Futures Agency. Zürich / Switzerland. My focus is on the future of humanity, and my new book on "Technology versus humanity" is available now: http://t.co/99XuSFoZvD

Greetings everyone, I know… it’s been a while that you heard from me; my apologies. I have been very busy with speaking gigs, making some films, and working on the key topics and memes set forth in my new book Technology vs Humanity which is doing really well (mostly 5* reviews and selling nicely across the globe now). Among many other things I am delighted to announce that the book will be published in German language by Vahlen (CH Beck) in just a few months.  
As usual, here are my best links and reads; hopefully you will enjoy them. If so, please consider sharing the link to this newsletter.  If you need to get in touch please ping me anytime via my contact form (better than replying here:)
Best regards from Zürich, and I hope to see you down the road.
