Read this before Easter - Gerd Leonhards Futurist Digest (Issue #6)


Futurist Gerd Leonhard: Welcome to the Future - my best finds and shares

March 23 · Issue #6 · View online

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

Greetings everyone, 
Greetings from Switzerland.  First, my new 2016 show-reel is now online on Youtube and on my site. It’s a cool 3-minute-15-seconds overview of what I do, and I think you’ll find it quite entertaining. The film is once again produced by my new art director Jean-Francois Cardella.  Please give it a click (and…some Twitter love?) and let me know how you like it. 
So, here are the latest must-reads (it seems, btw, they almost everything I read these days has some kind of techvshuman-angle:)
And after you read this… be sure to enjoy some good offline luxury during the Easter break.
Kind regards
