Greg Lindsay Biography

Greg Lindsay is the Senior Fellow for Applied Research and Foresight at NewCities, where he analyses what mobility and mixed-use development looks like in the future. He is a futurist, urbanist, critically acclaimed author and journalist.

Lindsay works with many multinational organizations, helping them plot a course for the future. He discusses the “death of cities” notion and how “remote work and its instant adoption has led to massive changes for cities” all over the world. Innovation does not happen through increased productivity, but rather through serendipity. Lindsay provides a brilliant understanding on how and why we “need to work on bringing people back together in a new, innovative way”.

Climate change is another area of concern that Lindsay discusses, along with his opinion on the recent COP26 gathering, expressing that “its one thing for nation-state governments to talk about great pledges… but all the plans are insufficient”.

Artificial Intelligence and massive advances in technological innovation are a peak area of interest for Lindsay. He explores the future of AI, discussing that “a lot of artificial intelligence is being used, not to create new services to enhance productivity, but to suppress wages and push people down”, further delving into discussions surrounding “its not about when the robots will replace us, its about are we creating the right kinds of AI?” Lindsay shares his deep understanding of some of the most relevant and prominent issues of our time.

Aerotropolis: The Way We'll Live Next

Aerotropolis: The Way We'll Live Next

Speaking Topics
  • The Post-Pandemic City

  • Inoculating the planet: life after COVID-19

    While the world awaits a vaccine, how will we inoculate our cities, workplaces, homes, and families against another pandemic? For example, how will fluid organizations balance the mental• and physical health of employees with new remote/office work hybrids? Will social distancing kill mass transit and ridehailing in favor of driving alone — or will cities turn streets over to cyclists, scooters, and pedestrians? How will deliveries, “dark kitchen,” and automation threaten to turn retailing and restaurants inside-out, threatening main streets, mom-and-pops, and real estate as we know it? And where will millennials — now the victims of a second financial crash — choose to raise their children, “Generation C?”

    Drawing on his research and foresight work for NewCities, the Atlantic Council, MIT’s Future Urban Collectives Lab, the Bloomberg Philanthropies, and dozens of recent interviews, Greg Lindsay delivers a sweeping view of how the pandemic and resulting economic crash will alter the trajectory of our lives for decades to come.

    Length: 45 minutes speaking + 15 minutes Q&A (Tailored to client’s needs)

  • The Future of Travel, Trade, and Cities

    This talk is about how air travel, the Internet, and the urban world are disrupting traditional ways of living and working. This comes out of Greg's 2011 book, "Aerotropolis," and can be taken in any number of directions. Greg has spoken about this subject at length to commercial real estate groups (e.g. CoreNet, NAIOP, the Urban Land Institute), travel groups (Association of Corporate Travel Executives, the Texas Travel Industry Association, the International Luxury Travel Meetings), aviation (Emirates, Boeing, FedEx), and many more.

  • The Future of Work, Cities, and Serendipity

    How will we discover new collaborators and ideas in a world where no one works in the same office anymore? Why is WeWork a $10 billion company? Greg has spoken about these trends at Microsoft, Intel, Ericsson, the U.S. State Department, the Aspen Ideas Festival, the Venice Architecture Biennale, the Institute for the Future, and many others.

  • The Future of Urban Transportation

    Where is Uber, Lyft, autonomous cars, etc. all headed? This talk is drawn from Greg's work at New York University and with the New Cities Foundation in Paris. He has recently given talks on this subject to the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA), the Automotive Fleet Leasing Association, the Canadian Automobile Association, Audi, Chrysler, Element Fleet Management, MIT, and others.

  • The Future of the Future

    The future isn’t what it used to be. As the pace of social, technological, and environmental change accelerates, organizations are struggling just to make sense of the present, let alone spot threats and opportunities looming just over the horizon. The ability to anticipate, understand, plan for, and innovate around uncertainty has become a critical skill for designers, innovators, and strategists everywhere. As the computing pioneer Alan Kay once said, “the best way to predict the future is to invent it.”

    Futurist, journalist, author and scholar Greg Lindsay will teach a crash course in exactly that. The practice of creating futures, or “foresight,” offers a toolkit and framework for detecting signals of change, organizing insights, synthesizing possible futures, identifying potential barriers and opportunities, and designing innovative products, services or ideas that satisfy emerging needs. In addition to lecturing on possible futures, Greg is available to lead participants through a fun, fast-paced workshop in which they create futures of their own.
