Gihan Perera

Futurist. Conference Speaker. Author. Australia

Fit for the Future
The Future of Leadership
Bright Sparks - Innovation & Collaboration


Gihan is an incredibly intelligent, well researched and forward thinking Futurist. He's also one step away from the funniest stand-up coming you'll ever see. His warm character off stage shows itself beautifully on stage making his audiences at ease and engaged from the start. His humorous delivery effortlessly communicates his insightful and powerful messages, leaving audiences energised and excited about the future rather than terrified or burdened as some Futurists can do. Gihan is highly recommended for conference opening slots, or as an energising keynote after lunch. His workshops are equally engaging and also recommended.
