Chris Riddell

Driven by the real world, by humanity, and by 'the now', Chris makes sense of the uncomfortable and challenging world of 'the future and makes the case for excitement, motivation, and optimism.

And there's never been a more critical time for optimism--but moreover, optimism with rigor. Chris's obsession with data, detail, and insights--making unique connections and unlocking new perspectives--forms a compelling case for a future that will be better than today.

This obsession with the future--and 'the now' that shapes it--has powered Chris' thinking, and his career, for 15 years. Having lived across the globe and working for some of the largest and influential businesses and brands on the planet, Chris has honed his ability to spot and track global patterns and unlocking opportunities in the increasingly disrupted digital world we live in.

Chris's approach sits at the intersection of rigor and insight--and heart and energy. Taking what we know--and fear--about our world today and tomorrow and encouraging changes in attitudes, beliefs, perceptions, and mindsets all wrapped up in awesome entertainment and showmanship.

This is the power of the live Chris Riddell experience. It's real relatable relevant and revelatory.
