Described by The Sunday Times as a seasoned communicator, Alexander Leibner takes you on a journey of tomorrow, today. As a conversation architect, his presentations are honed by thousands of hours of experience, both in-front of audiences and on live television, for the past 20-years, underpinned by an unrivalled global perspective. He is inspired to trial the future, not just talking about it, but by traveling with his own content team, capturing every engagement for his social media channels…and accepting his speaking fee in Bitcoin too.
He maintains that is is essential that we become wiser in an ever ‘smarter’ world.
For over a decade he played a key role in scaling and managing a pan-African media organization, with international ties to Europe, the Middle East and North America.

As a recipient of the President’s Award from late President Nelson Mandela and Prince Edward (Earl of Wessex), he has engaged with top-tier business and government leaders, international organization heads, sporting and Hollywood superstars.
His energetic, entertaining and informative exploration of the world of tomorrow ensures an extraordinary experience for his audiences around the world, both in German and English. He assists companies and organisations get the vital vision they require to prepare for a fresh future and change with confidence and expectation.
His work has taken him to over 35 major cities in 22 countries, some more than once with a career highlight including attending the Annual World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland and in Africa. He has served on the Adweek Africa Advisory Committee, the Advertising Benevolent Fund and the Chief Marketing Officer Council African Advisory Board.
His experience makes him a charismatic speaker, with untold stories and anecdotes; a seasoned moderator and engaging facilitator for your next engagement!
He believes that we can unlock a bouquet of potential through a clear vision and that the future can be remarkable if we choose it to be. Alexander is currently based out of Johannesburg, South Africa and has contributed and been part of a variety of international future focused organisations.

“Alexander and I worked together at the 3rd annual CEM Africa Summit where he controlled proceedings as the event moderator. He was able to combine his witty sense of humour with a great degree of professionalism that not only warmed the audience to the event but also got them talking – not an easy task at 8am. He brought great energy to the event, asking pertinent questions to the speakers and driving the discussion throughout. We will certainly be working together in the future and I truly value Alexander’s immeasurable contribution to the success of the Summit.” – Shannon Mackrill, Joint Managing Director of Kinetic
“Alexander is an absolute professional. I recommend him highly as a speaker and as an expert on generational theory and new trends in global marketing.” – Grant Driver, Founder of Captivate International
