Gary Whitehill believes humans deserve better.

Gary is a 21st Century futurist who believes that unstable times create incredible opportunities. He spends his time working alongside public and private sector leadership to build launch pads, fire up the human-ingenuity rocket fuel, and hurtle ideas forward to make the future happen now. 

Having earned a reputation for being driven and relentless when it comes to solving complicated and complex challenges, Gary’s accomplishments in a rapidly condensed timeline include:

• Building connections with 35,000+ business owners at Entrepreneur Week, which he founded in 2009.
• Creating over $250M in new market value within 3 years by directing corporate innovation strategy on Advisory Boards at AOL and Dell.
• Architecting local, national and global policy on infrastructure, technology and innovation through the Young G8, Young G20, Dell, T2 Venture Creation, and EBW2020.

Since 2010, Gary has journeyed through more than 110 countries, immersing himself in turmoil and transition. Where others see forces of power and control being eroded globally, Gary has discovered how humanity can be enriched through inclusivity, cooperation and participation. Through his FutureReady methodology, Gary maps how culture, process, and knowledge - the DNA of society - can leverage the emerging energy of 7.4B people to create a better future.

Over the years, Gary has contributed to multiple books and been featured in industry-leading publications, including Harvard Business Review, Globo, Inc Magazine, and The New York Times.
