If your goal is to prepare people for the future, Marc Prensky will show you how to do it.

A world-renowned thought leader, visionary, and generator of new ideas, Marc offers open-minded executives and leaders—on every continent—new and better ways to move into the future.

Marc’s core skill, honed by 6 years at the Boston Consulting Group (BCG), is “re-framing,” i.e., getting people to see things in new ways. He has been trusted by organizations including UBS, PwC, Ford, GE, Microsoft, Santander Bank, the BBC, UNESCO, Pearson, Le Monde, DARPA, The Commonwealth of Learning, the Universities of Harvard, Tokyo, Brazil, Chile, Chicago, and the CIA, NSA and U.S. Dept of Defense to help do this.

Marc helps executives think, feel, and act differently regarding their future work and lives. People who hear him ALWAYS leave with new thoughts and perspectives “It’s worth thinking about what Marc says.” comments Ravi Venkatisan, former Chairman, Microsoft, India. Marc holds graduate degrees from Harvard and Yale Universities.

He earned his MBA from the Harvard Business School with distinction, and worked for 6 years at the famed Boston Consulting Group, rising from consultant to the newly-created position of Product Development Director. In Marc’s keynotes he offers new, refreshing takes on today’s most important problems, including RE-FRAMING Creativity, The Metaverse and The Cloud, Artificial Intelligence and Humans, The Future of Work, Diversity and Trust, and Generational Change in the workplace.

His perspectives have been called “a breath of fresh air.” “Marc has always been ahead of his time.” says Canadian writer Michael Fullan. Marc is known around the world for coining the terms “digital native” and “digital immigrant” both now in the Oxford English Dictionary.
He has given keynotes in almost 50 countries on 6 continents, helping people all over the world re-frame their thinking.

Marc’s goal is to make people think, feel, and act differently regarding our fast-arriving future world. His keynotes are fast-paced, enjoyable and engaging, and are tailored for each audience. Marc’s presentation style is energetic, informal, and direct. He is well-known for continually offering new, high-quality ideas and thinking to conference audiences.“Marc offers us a lucid, inspiring, optimistic, and doable blueprint for our modern, high-risk, fast-changing world.” writes James Paul Gee, a University Professor at Arizona State University.

Marc’s 2016 book won a gold prize. His latest book, EMPOWERED!: Re-framing ‘Growing Up’ for a New Age (2022) has been called “transformative,” “insightful,” and a “must-read.”.
Marc offers audiences, based on his keen, unique observations, new and better alternatives for succeeding in the future. People who hear Marc speak leave inspired, grateful for new ideas, and often deep in thought.
Audiences leave Marc’s talks “buzzing” — with whole new ways of seeing the world, and a plethora of new ideas to implement. Audiences take away new, positive ways of seeing their work, their lives, and their future.
