Chris Kutarna helps you see more new things faster. In his debut international best-seller, Age of Discovery, Chris predicted some of the biggest developments to shape the past five years: a populist US president, Brexit, a global pandemic as the next big risk event.

Now Chris works with teams, organizations, corporations, and communities around the world to amplify and improve their original thinking.

His three core keynotes constantly evolve: Making Sense of the Now, How to Think Differently, and Bring Forth Your Second Brain: The Power of Convening. They have each been delivered and refined before audiences of thousands on six continents over the past four years.

Chris also designs and delivers original workshops for senior leaders through the University of Oxford’s Executive Education programmes, ranked among the best in the world by the Financial Times.

Chris is also the founder of the Neue Geographical Society, a global society of original thinkers who help each other see more, differently. Neue Geo publishes and promotes brave new thinking through podcasts, newsletters, workshops and events. Neue Geo’s nonprofit subsidiary, BaseCamp, works with global corporations, local libraries and world music festivals to create brave spaces for the world’s missing conversations.

In 2019 Chris was invited to TED to reset the whole debate on social media’s impact upon truth in modern society. His reframe: Let social media run amok. What it breaks, already needed fixing.
