Chris Riddell

Futurist for Leaders of tomorrow

Chris Riddell is a Futurist, renowned strategist and global emerging trend spotter for business leaders in today's disrupted world. A global trailblazer, Chris has worked for some of the largest and most successful companies and brands in the world. He is a senior advisor to businesses across industry verticals, with consulting expertise in the technology, transportation, manufacturing, healthcare, finance and communications sectors. Having lived and worked in the UK, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Kuwait, China, New Zealand and Australia, his understanding of our new world is compelling and thought provoking. Chris is a globally recognised leader in his field, and an expert in unlocking opportunities for businesses.

Event Overview

A perfect storm of political, economic and social change is upon us, making the world we live and work in a far more complicated place to navigate than ever before. Businesses need to morph and adapt at light speed. Our Business Leaders must quickly understand and anticipate the changing world, and deliver results in ever-growing uncertainty, whilst leading their people to success and creating capable Leaders of the future.

In just under four hours - Leading at Lightspeed will take you on a mindbending and thought provoking journey into a rapidly approaching future of constant and dynamic change. As a Leader, your ideas and responses to such change help shape the world we live in. Over the course of the summit you will also engage with other leading influencers, from across organisations and industries, and have your perceptions, perspectives and thinking challenged in a series of round-table think tanks. This is your opportunity to dissect and discuss lightspeed issues and impacts; share solutions; and help define a new blueprint for leading that will continue to shape and prepare you as a Leader – and develop your future Leaders.

Your contributions and those of your senior leader peers will be captured and produced into a published report of the London and Sydney events. The ultimate feature - the Leading at Lightspeed Blueprint created by Leaders for Leaders on how we lead our organisations, our people and society, and operate in a new world faced with far different challenges than those we’ve faced before.

It’s time to lead the World. Are you ready?
