Ms. Giordano was probably one of the best speakers I've had the privilege to watch. It really got me thinking and excited for our future.

Nancy was a huge success and I would have her again speak with my teams. She is an awesome human being and inspiration.

I’ve read your book Leadering and I hope it becomes every leader’s manifesto. I was hugely impressed; the concepts and the related future impact, so profound.

Nancy Giordano, as featured in:


The future isn't happening to us; it IS us.

Biased in wonder and optimism, Nancy is a strategic futurist focused on building a safe, inclusive, thriving future. Believing we have a once in a generation opportunity to rethink, reimagine and reshape every industry and social construct we call life, she supports and champions those actively architecting bold solutions and guides the visionary leaders eager to meet this call. An active strategist working on horizon solutions, Nancy is eager to share her insights on emerging technologies and shifting cultural expectations in ways that get everyone deeply motivated by the possibilities…and confident to start building.


At this pivotal moment in history we are not simply heading into a "Fourth Industrial Revolution". We're rapidly advancing into an entirely new age: the "Exponential Productivity Transformation" (XPT). Exponential technologies are converging with quickly shifting cultural advances to reshape every industry and societal construct, redesigning life ahead. What understandings and questions are essential to allow your organization to embrace the significant opportunities this represents?



Have you cultivated and empowered a community that cares?

We spend a lot of time with those building the future — the technologists, designers, entrepreneurs, scientists and authors coding (and decoding) the big transformations in how we work, pay, collaborate, learn, play and ultimately connect and coordinate. As champions for the future, we are especially excited to put these insights into action across a wide range of Strategic Consulting, Custom Workshops, Keynotes, Executive Learning Events and more. Here are some of the projects we've helped shape…

Strategic Consulting & Workshops

The future is being built as we speak but we’re only 5% into what exponential technologies will make possible. Nancy is an optimistic interdisciplinary visionary + global exponential strategist with the unique ability to both explain WHAT is changing and outline HOW we can get there.

Nancy’s High-Res Headshots.

Nancy has the unique ability to turn a room full of strangers into friends... The event was such a success that PBS has decided to make this one-time workshop an annual gathering... There is no one I trust more.

Shane Guiter - PBS

Nancy, just a quick note to say thanks for your participation in our most recent EmpowerU event. Your insight, energy, passion and humor are things that our employees continue to rave about a week later. Thanks so much again and I look forward to connecting in the future.

Doyle Beneby - CEO, CPS Energy

Hi Nancy, I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your session on Audacious Leadering at SXSW. It was a perfect moment of unexpected discovery as they say in the brochure! Your's was the talk that gave my SXSW experience it's intellectual centre of gravity. Many thanks.

Rich Donovan - Creative Director at LIDA Australia

Nancy, The timing of your lecture was one of those sort of jaw-dropping life-affirming, this is just what I needed moments for me. And at a dental conference. Who would have thought, right? Thank you for what you do and for how you shared it. Your talk was inspiring and refreshing for me for a number of reasons, including how dynamic, engaging and articulate you were on a stage that is dominated by males in my industry. It was a real pleasure seeing you speak.

Attendee - Straumann Dental Symposium

Dear Nancy, Your energy, your intelligence and your being touched my soul. I feel awakened to a world of possibilities and also the need for optimism for our young people. Thank you. Thank you! I will be following you and truly hope our paths will cross again.

Abby Busdekker - Content Curator, Education Travel Consortium

Nancy, you were a great partner to work with from start to finish. Thank you for taking the time to talk through what I was looking for to make sure you understood the needs of our attendees and the message I was hoping her talk would send. That collaboration was evident in the talk you gave. It was very well received, with many of our attendees specifically commenting on the positive energy you brought to the room. I was looking you to inspire our attendees to think differently, and you definitely delivered on that. You were a fabulous addition to our event.

David Kelly - EVP & Executive Director, The eLearning Guild

Nancy has a unique ability to highlight the most innovative applications of technology on the market, while making them relevant to the audience and somehow making the true story about people.

Alex Saric - CMO, Invalua

I LOVED LOVED LOVED both of your presentations at the AAPN. Very inspiring and thought-provoking.

Stephanie (Wilhelm) Williamson - President, WWA Advisors LLC

You gave a great WebEx yesterday on the future or work and working. It was like drinking from a firehouse. But I loved it! Thank you.

Marsha McVicker, Founder + CEO at Errand Solutions

Nancy—your speech: superb in content and providing inspiration for our future citizen soldier leaders!

Colonel David R. Gray, PhD, Director Center for Leadership and Ethics, Virginia Military Institute

Playbig Inc. says they ‘help leaders…play bigger’. But really, they actually help their clients THINK bigger, think better, think differently and help navigate the future in well considered and intelligently informed ways.

Seth Foster, Vice President - Project Administration

Nancy you were fantastic and I really appreciate your willingness to engage with folks after the session. It was meaningful and inspiring – what we all need these days.

Jill Shipley - Managing Director, Tiedemann Advisors

Nancy does a wonderful job of articulating how the business world is changing to place added value on connection and environmental/social responsibility -- how that makes business sense. From leaders to more active leaderING, Nancy's advice, including guidance for how we can help tomorrow's leaders for the future, is practical and actionable. In addition, I enjoyed the common thread woven throughout 'Leadering' about the importance of ecosystems, getting outside of our immediate network to lean in/learn from our curiosity and therefore expand both our perspective and our relevance.

Christina Furtado - Head of Corporate Affairs for Dell Technologies

I’ve read your book Leadering, and was hugely impressed. It was easy to digest, despite the concepts and the related future impact being so profound. I found the 7 mindsets to be something all leaders should understand and embrace. So often leaders get stuck in the routine of doing what their predecessors have done, appeasing regulators, attending numerous meetings, fixing yesterday’s problem but not thinking about tomorrow. I hope your book becomes every leaders manifesto.

We help the visionary play bigger.

We are in an extraordinary moment in which old systems, approaches, philosophies and institutions are breaking down. The new ones—which will likely look very different—are yet to be created. Successfully navigating between what exists now and what will be created for the first time ever requires a very different way of thinking and behaving. We must reorient our organizational structures away from those that manage and control resources from the top, to ones built to sense and deliver more collaboratively and responsively, harnessing the potential of a highly digital future, in humane and caring ways.
