The Future of Speaking

Million Dollar Speakers and global thought leaders Fredrik and Gil share the way in which the world is changing in relation to the presentation industry. This includes speakers, trainers, inhouse, company conferences, the internet and much more. You will see what has impact, what does not and what people want in your company and eco-system in the future in relation to communication in the traditional way. Is it lost or is it stronger than ever?

Speaker Bios

Fredrik Härén is an author and keynote speaker on Business Creativity, Change and Global Business. He has delivered 2,000 presentations in over 60 countries on 6 continents. He was voted Speaker of The Year in Sweden as well as selected as one of the “The Best Swedish Speakers Ever”. He is a CSP (Certified Speaking Professional) (one of 700 globally) as well as GSPGlobal (one of only 30 globally).

He is the author of 9 books, including “The Idea Book” which was included in “The 100 Best Business Books of All Time”. His latest book is called “One World. One Company”. It is a book about what it means to be a Truly Global Company.

Fredrik’s speciality is to be the “Global Conference Speaker”. Fredrik knows how to craft a speech so that, let’s say, an American, a Brazilian, a German and a Chinese all will be inspired and laugh and the same time feel that they walk away from the session with meaningful take-aways that were relevant to them.

Just last year Fredrik spoke at 23 different global (or international conferences), and he was – again, just last year – invited to speak in 23 different countries on 4 continents. Fredrik is a truly global speaker, with examples from all over the world.


Gil Petersil teaches strategic networking as a business subject. His vast business and cultural experience gained while living in Israel, Canada, USA, England and Russia has proven that networking is much more than a social skill. Gil is passionate about teaching networking as an Art and demonstrating how it facilitates achieving any goal: from turning connections into clients or partners to expanding businesses into new markets. Gil’s networking themes also cover such subjects as mentorship, follow up systems, strategic partnership, masterminding,etc.

Gil is first a serial entrepreneur and then a speaker. As a business owner of multiple companies he uses his stage time to share experiences without a need to sell anything. Being the owner of the leading Speakers Bureau for the Russian market, he’s able to add value to every speaker he meets and get regular professional engagement without ever selling himself.

Gil aims to serve when networking with strangers, so take advantage of the opportunity and connect.
