About Keith

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

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.
