As CEO of the 311 Institute and World Futures Forum the future has always fascinated me, and I still find it amazing that today all the technologies we think of as science fiction, from holograms to tractor beams, from molecular assemblers to self-evolving AI’s and robots, are now science fact. Fuelled by hundreds of powerful, and increasingly democratised emerging technologies, today individuals, let alone companies, have the power to impact the lives of billions of people, and disrupt the global status quo at a previously unfathomable rate and scale. The future’s fast and complex, but it can be visualised and tamed, and that’s my intro.



Whether it’s entertaining audiences from on stage or my wonderful home studio that have included royalty, world leaders, and individuals from all walks of life, that have ranged from a handful of participants to over 50,000, at hundreds of in person and live virtual events all around the world through smartphone screens and on giant IMAX screens seven stories tall, Matthew Griffin is an experienced international keynote speaker with a talent for bringing the future to life and leaving audiences with their minds blown.


A serial entrepreneur and author of the Codex of the Future series and How to build Exponential Enterprises Matthew is an experienced futurist and leader who not only talks the talk, but also walks the walk. As every entrepreneur and business leader knows starting a new company or venture is a difficult enough task in normal times, let alone in a world that no longer behaves like it used to, so that’s why I wrote the series and penned a new rule book.


WE CAN’T ALTER or influence the past but we can influence the future. Today though many people find themselves too preoccupied by daily distractions to carve out the time they need to explore  the future and all its potential in greater detail. And that’s where Matthew comes in. Within just half an hour, let alone longer, he can not only transform how you look at the world, but also provide you with the Exponential Mindset and tools to envision, build, and lead it.


Every leader, no matter their industry or area of responsibility, can see the world is changing faster now than at any other point in human history. They can also see that the rate of change itself is accelerating, and that today even individuals, let alone organisations, have the ability to disrupt the world at a speed and scale was unimaginable even a few decades ago. Then, throw in hundreds of millions of new entrepreneurs with access to hundreds of game changing technologies, and seemingly limitless access to money, skills, and resources, and all of a sudden disruption is the new Business as Usual.

Today’s world doesn’t play by the old world’s rules, and when you combine powerful ideas with powerful technologies, and an increasingly digital and hyper-connected society, all of a sudden being able to disrupt the global status quo in a day is no longer science fiction – it’s science fact. All of which makes it more important than ever before that you’re playing from the right rule book.
