ABOUT MATTHEW GRIFFIN
Matthew Griffin, CEO and Futurist in Chief of the 311 Institute, keynote speaker and 13 times author, is the world’s leading authority on emerging technology, trends, foresight, and the future and deep future. His clients include royal households, G7 and G20 governments, and many of the brands you’ll use today.
I have only one mission – to democratise access to the Future and Deep Future for everyone and provide you with the mindset and tools to shape it, participate in it, and lead it. That’s why everything on this site is free and why everything is about the future.
EXPONENTS DAILY BLOG
The decisions and technologies we are making today will all play a role in shaping what our future looks like – for better or worse. As a result our future is constantly evolving. Here you can see what we’re doing today to make our future tomorrow.
KEYNOTES AND PANELS: SEE AND SHAPE THE FUTURE
I have the great privilege of speaking to organisations and their audiences about the future and participating in conversations that help shape it, and while I am an eternal humanist and optimist who works hard to discover and present solutions to our world’s most pressing issues I am also a realist. Here you can play, pause, and rewind the sessions I’ve had the privilege of being involved with.
OPINION PIECES: LOVE IT, LOATHE IT
Everyone has their own opinions on matters and I’m no different. I believe all opinions are important and have the right to be voiced, and firmly believe in the values of debate, diversity, and open mindedness, because being closed to any of these diminishes all of us in the long run. Here you can explore some of those opinions and points of view.
PODCASTS: LISTEN, LEARN, REFLECT
Technology development and societal rates of change are now so fast that often the best way to keep current with them all is via podcasts so I contribute as much as I can. You can hear all of the replays here.
