Paul Papadimitriou

Paul is the founder of Intelligencr, the global innovation scouting firm.

Paul flies around the planet to witness what technological disruption actually means for the future of our youth, businesses, work, cultures and societies—the geopolitics of disruption.

With this new reality, he architects innovation and marketing strategies shaped around a new augmented, nomadic & tribal consumer—most recently launching a smartphone ecosystem in China and Europe.

As a sought-after keynote speaker, Paul inspires audiences on five continents, at major events such as Bell Labs, TEDx, e-nnovation, Engage, Ignite, World Telecom or SXSW and at Fortune 500 companies’ private gatherings, noted for creating “the best slides in the industry”. Renowned for his chairmanship skills, he hosts high-
profile corporate and industry events such as LeWeb, BDL Accelerate or DigitalK.

He also sits with disruptors on stage, from Hiroshi Mikitani (CEO, Rakuten) to David Jones (Founder, One Young World), to test their thinking.

Paul’s understanding of our era has appeared on The Economist, ABC, TF1, ABS-CBN or the Japan Times.
Paul advises startups worldwide and produces multiple shows: Layovers—the future of air travel, The Digital Loop—the state of digital transformation, Notion Capital—the best UK entrepreneurs.

Organizations such as Microsoft, eBay, Fujistu, SABMiller, Canonical, Astra SES, EY, Criteo, Siemens, Tumblr, the European Union or the ITU have trusted him to challenge them.

Paul is a Swiss, a Greek and a Finn. He has lived in Tokyo, Geneva, Manila and now resides in London. He’s an air travel nerd and chocolate lover.
