Neil Gibb

Neil Gibb has always been in the business of transformation, one way or another. He works as a business consultant, enterprise designer and coach. He co-developed the module on social innovation in a digital world as part of Cambridge University’s Master’s degree in Social Innovation.

Over the past ten years he has become a thought leader on the structural changes in our society which are being driven by new thinking and technology. His aim is to share thoughts and tools on how to build successful enterprises and authentic lives in the emerging economic and social landscape. He described his 2019 TEDx talk – entitled The Life and Death of Everything Now – as being in a permanent beta state as things are changing so fast.

A decade in the writing, and based on research and experience across five continents, The Participation Revolution begins with a quote from the mindfulness guru Jon Kabat-Zinn, ‘You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.’ Neil believes this captures the essence of his philosophy.
