Who is Morris?

Morris Miselowski is the global Business Futurist that business, event organisers, the media and the Einstein Genius 100
Global Future Think Tank turn to when they need to know how to
Start Fast and Slowly Go Faster.

What do Microsoft, VISA, EY, Toshiba, Wesfarmers, Westpac, ANZ, BMW, Lendlease, Allianz, Tourism Australia, TEDx and 1000’s of other corporations, associations, businesses, individuals and government instrumentalities all have in common?

They’ve all seen their future(s) through the eyes of internationally acclaimed and award-winning Business Futurist, Morris Miselowski.

Long before start up’s, entrepreneurs and VC capital raising were trendy, Morris began his first consulting practice in the proverbial garage at home, in 1981. Within 4 years he was employing 1,000 people and at the age of 22 sold it all, to pursue his obsession – influencing the future.

Morris is a visionary futurist pioneer, who in January 2019 had his life’s passion and work recognised by being asked, by an international search committee, to join the invitation only Einstein 100 Genius (G100) Global Think Tank, whose mission is to continue the Einstein legacy by bringing about change through a singular, openly collaboratively, humanitarian community that transforms visionary ideas into reality, ideas designed to spur investment for the betterment of the world, whether that be in education, science, medicine, technology, the arts, philanthropy or any other fields. Morris is the first Australian and the only Futurist to be invited.

What they saw in him, is what his clients and audiences profit from every day.

A man who passionately seeks out tomorrow’s possibilities long before others, who thinks differently, works differently, consults differently, experiences life differently and profits from future possibilities long ahead of the competition, marketplace and most people.

And he hasn’t achieved all this by reading about the future, or repeating well-worn populist ideas, but by actively seeking and immersing himself in it, forming his own opinions and foresights.

To ensure he is always at the bleeding edge, Morris is constantly on the road and on a plane meeting with inventors, innovators,  academics, venture capitalists, incubators, accelerators and others chatting with them about what they see ahead and why they think it’s important.

Uniquely, Morris doesn’t just visit alone, but regularly takes political, business and community leaders on Innovation Safari’s and Trade Missions into Silicon Valley and the Start Up Nation.

These unparalleled real-world experiences exponentially extend his impressive reach and tribe of global contacts and add up to the second real-world depth of wisdom to his 30+ years of foresight consulting to 1000’s of global clients across 160+ industries and the 1000’s of keynotes, workshops, advisory sessions and consulting projects he has delivered.

Although Morris considers himself a Strategic Specialist Generalist, believing that we’re all heading into the same future and that his role is to understand you and share with you your unique part in it, he does have several specialities that he is more often asked to advise and speak on.

These include the future of work, finance/banking/insurance/fintech, education, ageing, health/wellness, society, humans, welfare/philanthropy, housing, retail, agriculture/horticulture, hospitality/events/tourism, infrastructure, transport/mobility, innovation and reputation/trust.

His incredible ability to remain up to date and relevant across such a broad cross section of industries and topics, in a world that’s constantly evolving, are only parts of the deep well from which he draws his uncanny ability to connect broad seemingly unrelated threads of past and current occurrences, inventions, innovations, people, conversations and memes into a cohesive laser focussed specialist narrative that heralds in the story of a client’s, or audiences, future.

Morris, despite all the rumours, is not from the future, but rather of the future.

His unique human-centric first to future approach saw him profitably advise his “who’s who” of clients and audiences through the rise of the PC, the internet, social media, AI, and now takes him into advising them through the most daunting future landscape he has ever foreseen, the autonomous age, where, as newly minted Homo Cyborgs, we have begun to meld our minds and desires with technology and where everything we think we know, is up for challenge and enormous change, yet again.

Morris’s foresights do not worship at the feet of technology, but instead explore their human impacts – good and bad – and their ripple effect implications on society, family, people, work, industry and business.

His engaging, infectious and high energy style vividly brings the future to life, as he expertly drills down through today’s hype and hysteria, to arrive at tomorrow’s truth and possibility.

That’s why Ford’s in-house futurist refers to Morris as “the futurist’s futurist” and why his fellow futurists regularly call on him for advice and foresight.

His online influence, global thought leadership, ever expanding international network and enviable successes have for three decades helped shape the future of business and humanity and have afforded him the right to speak authoritatively, provocatively and pragmatically as he builds and presents his visions of a dynamic ever-evolving world and the myriad of possibilities and impacts it may bring.

And the line for those that want to hear and profit from what Morris sees ahead, is very long.

Working through offices in Australia and an ongoing consulting futurist role with one of North America’s leading strategic change advisors, Morris advises corporations in Australia, Asia, Canada, USA, Europe and Israel and can regularly be seen seated at the global board tables of the fortune 500, whispering in the ears of C level executives and in the hushed back rooms of venture capitalist’s plotting the next big thing.

On physical and digital stage, each of his 100+ annual edutainment presentations are carefully researched and individually crafted to exceed outcomes and expectations and are delivered using a heady combination of storytelling, multi-sensory audio visuals and relevant case studies.

This allows Morris to trigger his clients’ and audiences’ imagination, transporting them to their future, provoking them with an easy to understand pragmatic view of what’s ahead and why, infecting them with excitement for what‘s next and beyond next, before bringing them back to today’s reality, with a clear understanding of what they need to do next and arming them with the practical tools and insights they will need to take full advantage of it, today.

Morris can also be heard, seen and read around the globe through his regular media comments, appearances, segments, broadcasts, blogs and podcasts.

All of this is why Morris is the global go-to Futurist expert that audiences and clients call on when they need to know: How to Start Fast and Slowly Go Faster.
