Leo Johnson    

Co-Presenter of Radio 4's "FutureProofing," Disruption Lead at PwC & Sustainability Expert

Leo Johnson heads up PwC's Disruption practice, and co-presents BBC Radio 4’s flagship series “Future Proofing”, which explores the big ideas and innovations re-shaping business and society.

Johnson 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. Johnson aims to demystify what in the world of exponential technologies is real, what is hype, and what will have long-term impact on business.

Johnson joined the World Bank as a Resource Economist before co-founding 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.

He is the Author of “Turnaround Challenge: Business & the City of the Future” (OUP 2014). He is also the founder of Unthinkable Drinkable Brent, the urban wine and slivovitz making co-operative.
