Brief Biography

Dr Ian Pearson is a leading futurist, keynote speaker and after dinner speaker. All over the world, he has delivered over 1000 provocative talks about the future of many aspects of our daily lives - from work to leisure, fashion to climate change. As well as his 1800+ inventions, he has written seven books and appeared over 700 times on TV and radio.

Ian identifies and explains the key changes ahead in every sector of business and society that will arise as a result of rapidly changing technology, without use of jargon. He has a strong engineering background and uses that to interpret current R&D and drive his views on how fast things in each sector will change in the next 15 years. He explains often complex technological developments using ordinary everyday language, and shows why they are relevant to executives, in a provocative and entertaining style.

Ian graduated in Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics from Queens University, Belfast. After four years in missile design, he joined BT where he made many inventions in numerous IT fields, including text messaging and the active contact lens. He was BT’s lead futurologist from 1991 until he left to join Futurizon in 2007. He predicts new developments throughout technology, considering business, political, environmental and social implications. He is a Chartered Fellow of the British Computer Society, the World Academy of Art and Science, and the World Innovation Foundation. In 2007 was awarded a Doctor of Science degree by the University of Westminster.
