The best links and must-reads aggregated by Gerd Leonhard, Futurist & Humanist, Keynote Speaker, Author of 'Technology vs Humanity', Film-Maker, and CEO of The Futures Agency in Zürich / Switzerland.

How’s it going? I hope your week is off to a solid start. I know I personally have been incredibly busy with some key client keynotes, a few conferences and digital events I’ve been asked to speak at, the latest edition of our Future Ready Executive Program, and everything else life throws our way in the middle of a pandemic and the aftermath of a presidential election.
But don’t worry, I’ve still had time to scour the web and been reading nonstop. Speaking of which, I wanted to share a few articles and videos I thought you might like. I’d love to hear what you think of them.
NOTE: After today, I’ll be sending this weekly roundup every Tuesday, but this was a special exception as I wanted my other newsletter subscribers to have the chance to participate as well.
And now, without further ado, here’s the good stuff!
