Since Megatrends, his first published book in 1982, the future has been in the center of John Naisbitt‘s field of activity as an author and speaker.
John Naisbitt has become the global philosopher among futurists. With his articulate and inspiring message, he is as much in the limelight of global corporations as he is a calming influence among leading politicians in closed circles.
It is not only his experience in top management, politics or as an entrepreneur that has shaped John Naisbitt’s picture of the future. His cultural life and residence in countries on several continents keep him directly in touch with global conditions, which is reflected in the books he has written.
John Naisbitt studied at Harvard, Cornell and Utah Universities. He has been advisor to top corporate and government executives. He was executive with IBM and Eastman Kodak, Assistant Secretary of Education to President Kennedy, Special Assistant to President Johnson.
He was visiting fellow at Harvard University, visiting professor at Moscow State University, and is current faculty member at the Nanjing University in China.
