Futurist and Keynote Speaker

Gihan Perera is an entrepreneur, business consultant, speaker, mentor and interviewer.

Since 1997, he has worked with some of Australia’s highest profile thought leaders, thought leaders, entrepreneurs, and other change agents, helping them build strategies to thrive on and off the Internet. Thought provoking, amusing and energetic, he gives business leaders a glimpse into what’s ahead – and empowers them to become change agents for the future.

More about Gihan Perera:

Gihan’s formal background is in science and technology, but he has always been interested in people and the way they communicate. While he doesn’t love technology for its own sake, he loves our power to control and leverage it to communicate a message and live a happier life.

Gihan discovered the internet when it was in its infancy, while studying for his Honours degree in Computer Science at the University of Western Australia. That was in 1998 and a few years later, in 1997, he founded First Step Communications, one of Australia’s earliest Web design businesses. Since that time, it’s grown to include clients in every continent, except Antarctica and he continues to operate as CEO of the business, while also working as a consultant and keynote speaker.

If you want to deliver your ideas, products and services to more people for more impact and more money, Gihan can show you how.

Gihan Perera talks about:

Fit for the Future – Take an educational, eye-opening, and engaging ride into the future to learn about the global megatrends shaping your industry, the mindset that helps you lead the change, and the skills you need to get things done in a fast-changing world.

The Future of Leadership – Our volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world needs a new kind of leadership. Your team members are smarter, more savvy, and more influential than ever before. Help them bring their unique skills to the workplace – and watch your team and organisation thrive.

The Future of Work – The skills you need for the future aren’t technical, task-oriented skills – because those skills will become obsolete through automation and artificial intelligence. Discover how to identify and develop the skills for your future workforce, so you can future-proof your career, team and organisation.

The Future of Innovation – Innovation is everybody’s business. People are smarter, more savvy, and more diverse than ever before, and the best leaders enlist everybody – their teams, customers, clients, peers, and community – to adapt to change, embrace it, and even lead it.

The following sessions can be added to Gihan’s keynote for additional impact:

  • Light Up: Create an innovation culture in your business
  • Channelling Chaos: Be more productive in a fast-moving world
  • Power Up: Get the most from your rising stars
  • Authority: Build your authority and personal brand
  • Link Up: Deliver great experiences in a customer-centric world
