Leo Johnson Partner, Head of Disruption Practice & co-presenter, Radio 4 FutureProofing at PwC

Profile

Leo Johnson, Head of PwC's Disruption practice, co-presents Radio 4’s flagship series FutureProofing, exploring the big ideas and innovations reshaping business and society. He explores the cutting edge in exponential technology, probing game changers both short term and long, from autonomous transport and payment by data to radical life extension, quantum computing, and the RFID chipped workforce. What - in the tsunami of exponential technology - is real and what is hype? More importantly, what is the impact going to be on business? 

After Oxford and INSEAD, Leo joined the World Bank as a Resource Economist before cofounding the boutique advisory firm Sustainable Finance, since acquired by PwC Group. He is now a Visiting Business Fellow at Oxford University's Smith School of Enterprise & the Environment, a judge on the Financial Times’ Boldness in Business awards, and a regular presenter for BBC World. TV credits include Changing the Rules, Down to Business, One Square Mile and World Challenge. Leo is an occasional commentator for the Financial Times, New Statesman, Evening Standard and Wall Street Journal. He also co-authored Turnaround Challenge: Business & the City of the Future.
