On 24th January 2017 London Speaker Bureau hosted the launch of speaker, futurist and author Mark Stevenson. The launch took place at the Royal Institution in Mayfair, London.
Stevenson gave a speech sharing teasers from the book, insight into what he is currently working on, and a characteristically optimistic glimpse into the future. He touched on both current and future trends that will shape the world and our lives including the innovations such as the use of liquid air as fuel!
ITV News’ former Economics Editor and Chief Political Correspondent Daisy McAndrew then moderated a Q&A with Stevenson, who answered questions from a thoroughly engaged audience of London Speaker Bureau clients.
Stevenson left the audience with an emphasis on the critical importance of sustainability, innovation and happiness, declaring: “The future is a mirror…and if you don’t look into that mirror and see a world of sustainability and compassion and humanity and justice, then why are we getting up in the morning?”
His new book, We Do Things Differently travels the world to find the innovative advances re-imagining our future, following the format of his first book An Optimist’s Tour of the Future which is now a best-seller.
