Ayelet Baron

Award-winning Author,
Futurist for Humanity

Recognized by Forbes and Thinkers360 as one of the world’s top female futurists

We are living in one of the most exciting times in human history when we choose to see possibilities and are ready to face ourselves. This is a time of dialogue and deep connection so all conversations and interviews to connect, share ideas, and create meaning together are welcome.

Ayelet helps us become aware that there’s another way to live and work by seeding healthy ideas, questioning everything and addressing prickly issues thoughtfully.

She brings fresh perspectives that people are looking for right now on how we can make meaningful shifts together. Bridging timeless wisdom, insights and courage to show the way to what is possible is her forte.

During her corporate career, she ran strategy and operations for billion dollar global sales organizations within Cisco Systems. In 1999, she launched the first internal online community at Cisco and a daily portal to position IT as a strategic business partner.

As an early adopter of the future of work and leading global teams in five continents herself, she saw what was coming next—the business and cultural shifts that organizations and leaders would need to embody to be positioned for success in the 21st Century and beyond. Many of those predictions are happening NOW.

Ayelet Baron’s Media + Press Kit
