Award-Winning Futurist & Presenter

Shivvy Jervis is an award-winning futurist, speaker, and presenter making it her mission to hunt down the most fascinating online, social, and tech trends.

To date, her YouTube video series’ "Digital Futures and The Trailblazers" have tracked up a 10 million-plus viewership, with episodes regularly attracting a 350,000-strong global audience. In it, she uncovers those advances that will radically impact every aspect of our lives (health, education, food, fashion) and curates fast-paced dialogue with big-name pioneers and young innovators alike.

Jervis has received over numerous industry accolades for her work -- highlights include winning a national Asian Women of Achievement award, being named one of Europe’s 30 leading women in digital and pegged one of 10 future leaders for London. Jervis has been cited by the curator of TED Global as “having the remarkable capacity to uncouple the relevant from the mere buzz” and lauded a “riveting storyteller and true expert with tremendous charisma” by the UK’s former Digital Minister. In 2019, Jervis was voted one of Britain's 2019 Role Models of the Year and Europe’s most trailblazing women in digital.

As a former Reuters and CNN Asia broadcast journalist reporting on business and technology, Jervis has a razor-sharp sense not only for what is newsworthy now but also for what will make headlines in the future.

Jervis has previously fronted "Expert Insight," a ten-part online video series on business, sustainability, and capitalism, conducting intimate interviews with the CEOs of the world’s largest multinational companies and global thought leaders. In her avatar as a commentator, Jervis has been called upon to offer her expert view in Forbes, BBC, CBS, The Guardian, CNN, The Huffington Post, Wired, The Next Web, and Silicon Republic.

An accomplished speaker, Jervis is equally at ease running with a solo headline slot, chairing a high-level summit or emceeing an awards night. She has produced editorial from Montreal, Washington, Bangalore, and Denmark and been invited to speak at the London Stock Exchange, the DoJ, Channel 4 HQ, and BAFTA.

Jervis immerses herself in future technologies, the digital economy, and explosive online trends, making sense of these for everyday viewers. She demystifies and brings to life seemingly complex or dry subjects, always taking engaged audiences along for the ride.
