Peter Leyden

Reinvent
Founder & CEO
San Francisco, California
Peter Leyden is a blend of intellectual and entrepreneur who has spent his career working for innovative organizations trying to figure out the future and find better ways forward. He is the founder of Reinvent, a company that drives conversations with leading innovators about how to build a better future and that creates events and media to spread their ideas. He’s also a frequent keynote speaker on new technologies and future trends, working through Keppler Speakers.

Leyden came to the San Francisco Bay Area 25 years ago to work at the early Wired magazine and he ended up running the magazine as managing editor. He then reinvented himself every 5 years or so by following the front edge of tech disruption, and working for pioneering companies like Global Business Network. In 2012 Leyden founded Reinvent, which connects up networks of innovators from diverse fields in physical events. Leyden then drives conversations about what’s possible in the near-term future, which are captured on long-form video that can be shared.

Leyden started out his career as a journalist, including working as a special correspondent in Asia for Newsweek, and has co-authored two books on new technologies and the future: The Long Boom, and What’s Next.
