Keith Coats


Keith is a founding partner in TomorrowToday and works across multiple industries, presenting to multi-cultural audiences in a global context at both an executive and senior leadership level.

His research, and 20 years of international experience, has clearly identified the key-defining factors for a successful leader in the 21st century as the ability to learn, grow and be adaptable. Keith believes that leaders need to have access to new frameworks and thinking in order to successfully lead into the future.

Keith works hard to ask the questions that aren’t being asked and then, together with the TomorrowToday team, builds frameworks of understanding that illuminate insights into the specific area of focus. For example leadership, talent, disruption, diversity and bringing out the best in those you lead.

‘Leadership is always context specific and this is why leaders cannot afford to ignore or turn a blind eye to what is happening ‘out there’. The ‘out there’ will always impact on the ‘in here’ and it is the leader’s responsibility to be the hinge between the external context and the internal realities.’

Keith is able to provide not just keynote presentations and workshops, but also longer leadership development programmes, online resources and bespoke interventions to ensure that his messages stick and make a real difference to his client’s bottom line. The dynamic and educating presentations that Keith delivers are underpinned by global experience, research and the very best of the TomorrowToday thinking. His style is conversational, relaxed and confident and helps engage the audience to see things differently and think for themselves.

Keith is a published author and at the request of the King of Sweden has worked with the Swedish Economic Forum. He has also worked with Business Schools and Institutions, including London Business School, Duke CE, GIBS and the East West Centre.
