|Amelia Kallman Biography|
Futurist, Speaker, Author
Amelia Kallman is a leading London futurist, speaker, and author. As an innovation and technology communicator, Amelia regularly writes, consults, and speaks on the impact of new technologies on the future of business and our lives. She is an expert on the emerging risks of The New Realities (VR-AR-MR) having recently completed authoring a cutting-edge report for Lloyd's of London. She also specialises in the future of retail.
Coming from a theatrical background, Amelia started her tech career by chance in 2013 at a creative technology agency where she worked her way up to become their Global Head of Innovation. She opened, operated and curated innovation lounges in both London and Dubai, working with start-ups and corporate clients to develop connections and future-proof strategies. Today she continues to discover and bring attention to inventive start-ups, regularly curating events for WIRED UK.
Coming from a non-traditional technology background she has a unique talent for making the complex accessible. Since going freelance in 2017 she has become an in-demand international speaker. As an independent futurist, clients often find her frank, unbiased, and ethical assessments a refreshing contrast to speakers who endorse, sell and market.
She's lectured at Cambridge University, written a multi-award winning book, and directed the first burlesque show in 360° video. In 2016 she led an experiment that measured the emotional data of people ages 3-80 as they experienced virtual reality for the first time. Her writing is often featured in WIRED UK, IBC365, and The Big Reveal, her popular monthly innovation newsletter. She is currently working on her next book.
