Futurist Chris Riddell

Riddell is a recognised trend spotter, frequent media commentator, and digital expert with unparalleled insights into emerging trends and human behaviour.

He makes sense of the uncomfortable and challenging world of ‘the future’ and makes the case for excitement, motivation and optimism. This obsession with the future—and ‘the now’ that shapes it—has powered his thinking, and his career, for 15 years.

Having lived across the globe and worked for some of the largest and influential businesses and brands on the planet, Riddell has honed his ability to spot and track global patterns and unlock opportunities in the increasingly disrupted digital world we live in.

He has also been Global Futures Ambassador for the Australian Federal Police and is currently resident Global Affairs and Technology Expert for Australia’s Channel Seven television network.
