Futurist Chris Riddell announced as keynote speaker for 2024 PNG Investment Conference

We are delighted to announce that futurist Chris Riddell, former Chief Digital Officer at Mars, will be providing the keynote address on Day 1 of the 2024 Papua New Guinea Investment Conference (12 & 13 August in Brisbane).

Chris is a recognised trend spotter, frequent media commentator, and digital expert with unparalleled insights into emerging trends and human behaviour.

Chris makes sense of the uncomfortable and challenging world of ‘the future’ and makes the case for excitement, motivation and optimism.

This obsession with the future—and ‘the now’ that shapes it—has powered Chris’ thinking, and his career, for 15 years.

Having lived across the globe and worked for some of the largest and influential businesses and brands on the planet, Chris has honed his ability to spot and track global patterns and unlock opportunities in the increasingly disrupted digital world
we live in.

Chris has also been Global Futures Ambassador for the Australian Federal Police and is currently resident Global Affairs and Technology Expert for Australia’s Channel Seven television network.
