Amelia Kallman is a leading London futurist, speaker and author. As an innovation and technology communicator, Amelia regularly consults brands, agencies, and governments on the impact of new technologies on the future of business and our lives. She helps clients navigate innovation, building strategies and advising on delivery. She is an expert on the emerging opportunities – as well as the risks – of The New Realities (VR-AR-MR) having recently authored a cutting-edge, industry-leading report for Lloyd’s of London. She also specialises in the future of retail, audio, AI and IoT.
Originally from a theatrical background, Amelia started her tech career by chance in 2013 at a creative technology agency where Amelia Kallman worked her way up to become their Global Head of Innovation. She’s opened, operated and curated pop-up and permanent tech labs in London, Scotland and Dubai, working with clients including Accenture, PWC, WIRED, and EY.
Coming from a non-traditional technology background, Amelia Kallman has a unique talent for making the complex accessible. Since going freelance in 2017 she has become an in-demand international speaker. As an independent futurist, clients often find her frank, unbiased, and ethical assessments a refreshing contrast to speakers who endorse, sell and market.
She’s lectured at Cambridge University, written a multi-award winning book, exhibited her art internationally, and directed the first burlesque show in 360° video. She’s led experiments that measure the emotional data of people ages 3-80 as they experience VR for the first time, and more recently has been exploring the hypothesis that VR has the power to tap into the dormant part of our brains responsible for synesthesia, potentially unlocking new pathways of creativity.
Amelia Kallman’s writing is often featured in WIRED UK, IBC365, and The Big Reveal, her popular monthly innovation newsletter. She is currently writing her next book and studying Swahili.
