How to design your future and win in the new age of

Moonshots, MegaTrends and MegaAbundances  

My newest and best innovation keynote introduces you to the opportunities and the actions which will lead to phenomenal success.

Did you know the World's first trillionaire is alive today? In September 2030, at the age of 66, Jeff Bezos is odds on favourite to become the first member of the four-comma-club – just 11 years from now.


It’s not easy to appreciate exactly how preposterously large one trillion pounds is. ‘One with twelve zeros’ doesn’t quiet do it justice, so, instead imagine this: If you burned through a million pounds every day it would take you 2,739 years to spend a trillion pounds.


Here’s what you can learn from this.


There has never been a better time for you to innovate and it’s never been easier to take a small idea and have a big impact – Jeff Bezos after all started Amazon selling books online from his garage. 

You are experiencing history’s greatest rate of change, but most people do not realise this is a new era. Those tuned to change will seize opportunity. This is an era for action. This is not the time to preserve the status quo. You need to take the leap, break your rules, push harder. Because you are capable of more than you think, you are capable today of anything you could dream. 


Who wants to be a trillionaire, will get you on the journey to delivering 10x the impact. And, when you deliver 10x the impact anything is possible.


Who wants to be a trillionaire, shows you why there has never been a better time for ambition, for taking risk, for pursuing your dreams and designing your own future.


Contact Dean now to learn how you can benefit from his latest keynote and workshop.

We also have a number of other futurist trends and leadership keynotes which can be tailored to meet your event needs. Let's have a chat

Do something remarkable

Dean could not imagine anything crazier than a snail crossing a busy motorway for the cover of his book. But in many ways as he explains: "That is the quintessence of a QUEST! The audacity of hope, competing against the odds to act out a crazy dream that inspires people to find solutions that achieve the impossible. And, with today's exponential technology anything is now possible." 

Quest, explores and shares stories of people like you who do remarkable things to change the world. Quest provides a framework that anyone, in any position, at any organisation can use to make "dents in the universe" 

"Everyone should read QUEST! It gives an empowering and uplifting message backed up with heaps of inspiring stories and data. If you have a chance to join his workshops they are as inspirational as the book" HannaS – 5* Amazon Customer Review
