Chris Riddell - Global Futurist 2017
I recently attended a Telstra retail conference where Chris Riddell was a keynote speaker on digital. His talk was energising, thought-provoking and very real to the world we all live in. As ... keep reading the owner of a number of Telstra stores myself, I felt empowered to get up and do something different the moment I left the conference. Chris is absolutely revelant for anyone who works and lives in the modern world, and is a must for people wanting to set themselves up for success in the future! I can't recommend him highly enough.

Chris Riddell is someone who engages the audience and brings clarity to the complicated. He speaks at a level that everyone understands, and his style of presenting is exciting to say the least. Digital is something that impacts us all, and is a huge part of our global future. If you want to prepare your audience for the new world ahead, my recommendation is get them to hear what Chris has to say. They'll walk away prepared and with exciting new perspectives.
Chris Riddell showed a wonderful articulation for technology and its real life use, with practical examples and none of the propeller spinning complexity and jargon that is often seen. Chris has also recently been a keynote speaker at our Telstra Retail COnference, speaking about the future of digital and how it's impacting our world. Chris was able to not only entertain and inspire but delivered on the future ways of working and the challenges faced by business leaders today. I'd highly recommend Chris for any key speaker appointments for business that are needing thought provoking discussion on how their businesses will continue in the future with technology.
Very engaging, content relevant to our business and thought provoking.
I wanted to take the time to thank Chris very much for his contribution to our event last week. The feedback has been fabulous and there's a great buzz around the country about what a great event it was and, in particular, his presentation. So thank you. We hope he enjoyed it as much as we did and we look forward to crossing paths again in the near future.
As an invitation only leadership event, it was imperative that we had a quality and draw-card speaker who would challenge the status quo and leave the audience inspired, informed and with valuable insights. Your thought-provoking keynote delivered to our brief and did so with a lot of energy and creativity. It truly set the stage for a terrific conference. Your presentation on the digital future, innovation and disruptive technologies resonated with all and feedback from the audience and global SAS executives has been very positive. I personally found your content engaging and entertaining at the same time. I would recommend anyone looking for a futurist speaker on digital and social trends to look no further and sign you up.
