Shivvy Jervis is one of the globe’s most trusted guides on incredible innovations, where to find them and crucially, how to use them so we can thrive.
Shivvy tracks down and demystifies the latest breakthroughs from digital, science and psychology. Since headlining over 600 stages, earning 25+ industry accolades and notching up 32 million minutes-worth of watched content, she is breaking barriers as a leading female, Asian expert humanising the ‘innovation economy’.
Each week, to arenas-full or via broadcast, Shivvy sets out to help thousands of us discover the most useful and accessible advances that will shape both our businesses and lives. She finds the tools to protect us on- and offline, keep our jobs and livelihoods going, detect we’re ill before the doctors do or make our cities more sustainable.
Shivvy has hosted live debate broadcasts, fronted Discovery Channel documentaries, quizzed the world’s top climate change pioneers and interviewed former PMs (David Cameron) and music legends (the late James Brown) alike. A former CNN Asia and Reuters reporter with solid journalism roots, Shivvy previously created two successful streaming series’ that enjoyed a five-year run, shining a light on brilliant advances and the maverick minds behind them.
TED Talks, a curator of the world’s most iconic ideas, recognise her for ‘having a remarkable capacity to find what’s relevant from all the noise and hype’. The UK’s former digital minister likens Shivvy to a combination of three of the country’s much-loved household names, noting ‘she carries the authority of Brian Cox with Rachel Riley’s intelligence and likability, and Bear Grylls’ adventurous spirit’!
Shivvy remains one of Europe’s most booked consumer and business trend forecasters (or what the industry terms ‘a futurist’) and a rare, diverse voice and storyteller in her space. Above all else, the trailblazer named a Champion of Change and one of Britain’s Women of the Year makes it her mission to fulfill our century-old need… to be as prepared as possible for the most pivotal changes coming our way.
