Keith Coats
Global Leadership Expert and Speaker on how organisations and leaders become Future-Fit.

Leading in a Changing World

Keith Coats is a futurist and leadership expert, with global experience as a presenter, facilitator and author. Keith shares his experience with audiences around the world, helping them understand the leadership response to a global context of change, complexity and uncertainty.

Keith’s research has clearly identified the key-defining factor for a successful leader in the 21st century is the ability to learn, grow and be adaptable. He believes that leaders need to have access to new frameworks and thinking in order to successfully lead into the future.
The greatest threat for most leaders right now is not the turbulence in their marketplaces and industries, but rather applying yesterday’s logic to tomorrow’s world. The global context, complexity and connectedness present entirely new challenges for contemporary leaders. Keith works with clients around the world to show them how to respond.

The Results
Keith is a sought after keynote presenter, appreciated for his global insights and experience. He engages his audience in a relaxed and easy-to-listen-to manner, using humour to underscore his message. Very few have Keith’s experience of being trusted to deliver keynotes at large conferences and to multi-cultural audiences across a wide range of industries throughout the world.
Multiple clients with whom Keith has worked frequently comment on his ‘out of the ordinary’, his ‘exceptional’ and his ‘world class’ input that has made a profound difference to their leadership thinking and practice.

Track Record
Keith works in numerous international executive leadership programmes and with business schools including London Business School, Duke CE, the Asia Pacific Leadership Program and the Gordon Institute of Business Science. He consults directly with clients at a board, executive and senior leadership level across a wide range of industries and sectors on subjects that include the future of leadership, global trends, strategy, diversity and talent. He is the co-author of ‘Leading in a Changing World’, and writes regularly for many different publications.

Client Comments
“Don’t expect the ordinary business school approach. Expect dynamic, world class, out of the box frameworks and service delivery that will truly bring about authentic change and leadership growth in your organization as it has done for us.”
