Gihan Perera is a futurist, conference speaker, author and consultant who gives business leaders a glimpse into what's ahead - and how they can become fit for the future. Since 1997, he has worked with business leaders, thought leaders, entrepreneurs, and other change agents - helping them with their strategy for thriving in a fast-changing world.

He has clients throughout Australia, as well as in New Zealand, South Africa, the United Kingdom, Singapore, the USA and Canada. He is the author of “The Future of Leadership”, “Fast, Flat and Free”, “Out of Office”, “Webinar Smarts”, and seven other books.

His formal background is in science and technology, with a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Western Australia. But he's always been interested in people and the way they communicate - and how to leverage technology to deliver messages, extend reach, and live happier lives.

He lives in the world's most liveable city – Perth, Australia – and enjoys an enviable lifestyle, with his own home, his own business and his own teeth.

Gihan’s professional, thorough and collaborative approach were evident in all our dealings with him. Framed by Gihan’s entertaining presentation style, his relevant knowledge of key issues in local and global context, practical tips and tools for the workplace, and his understanding of emerging trends resonated with the group and contributed to our leadership conference’s success. Overwhelmingly positive feedback and light-bulb moments from delegates.

Gihan’s candid style and humour won over the packed house from the moment he began speaking. It came as no surprise when he received the highest rating of all the guest speakers we had on the day. If you get a chance to bring him into your organisation or conference, I strongly recommend you do so before someone else books him.

Gihan's presentation was a great opening session at our recent senior leaders forum. He cleverly integrated his knowledge and facts about technology evolution and other global disruptions into a compelling story about the change occurring in our working lives, and how we can best respond to it as leaders and individuals.
