Areas of Expertise

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 Track Record

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.

Presentations and leadership development programmes

In TomorrowToday we work hard to ask the questions that aren’t being asked and then to build frameworks of understanding that illuminate insights into the specific area of focus – be that leadership, talent, disruption, diversity etc. These frameworks draw on our broad international exposure and experience. The frameworks, as part of their evolutionary process, are turned into dynamic, edu-taining keynote presentations. What this means is that the presentations and programmes that Keith delivers and designs are underpinned by global experience, research and the very best of our TomorrowToday thinking. They can be fully customised, are always being updated and are enhanced by the selective use of multi-media. In fact TomorrowToday pioneered the use of dynamic multi-media in the presentation space.

Business Schools and institutions including London Business School, Duke CE, GIBS and the East West Centre, Hawaii repeatedly request Keith’s input in their premier leadership programmes globally.

” I first met Keith in 2002, when I invited him to speak at the East-West Center in the Asia Pacific Leadership Program (APLP), our flagship leadership education program. His pilot teaching was so successful that I have invited Keith back annually ever since for periods of 2-3 weeks modular teaching on i) the nature of leadership in a globalizing world, ii) learning how to learn leadership, and iii) learning to lead diversity.  His evaluations have consistently been the best in the program and he remains one of the most insightful people I know in the world on leadership.” – Nicholas H. Barker (Ph.D.) Director, Asia Pacific Leadership Program

Why use Keith and when should you do so?

If you wish to challenge the status quo and stimulate thinking and action then we believe Keith will fit the bill. He is comfortable in addressing sizeable conferences to executive teams sitting around the boardroom table. He is confidant that the thinking he represents (from TomorrowToday) is amongst the very best anywhere and is world class. We have repeatedly been told as much.
