Jack Martin Leith is the founder and director of Futuregen Labs, an innovation and education facility based in Bristol, United Kingdom.
Futuregen Labs conceives, develops and introduces one-of-a-kind creations that disrupt the status quo, enrich the world, and are freely available to everyone who might benefit from them.
The first of these creations is futuregen.
Futuregen (“that which generates the future”) is a set of interlocking theories and practices for turning your workforce into a creative powerhouse.
Our term for a business, institution or organisation that has undergone such a transformation is generative enterprise.
Enriching the world: is it good business practice?
This is the title of Jack’s five minute Ignite Bristol talk. The 20 slides that accompany it auto-advance every 15 seconds.
Before launching Futuregen Labs in 2014, Jack helped business leaders adopt a co-creative approach to strategy, innovation and large-scale organisational change.
Over the course of more than two decades, he provided consulting services and educational programmes to a rich assortment of private, public and third sector organisations.
His clients included ABN Amro Bank, Department of Health, Dogs Trust, European Commission, GlaxoSmithKline, Home Office, Imagination, McCain Foods, MIT Entrepreneurship Center, Shell International and W.H. Smith.
Jack has also done consulting work for a broad spread of government bodies, arts organisations and professional services firms.
He is a former council member of Association for Management Education and Development, and he contributed a chapter—Creating Collaborative Gatherings Using Large Group Interventions—to the Gower Handbook of Training & Development.
He has led seminars at London Business School and London School of Economics and Political Science, and at University of Brighton, where they formed part of the university’s MA Change Management.
Jack has many contacts working in the fields of academia, management consulting and marketing services, and he is in touch with some of the world’s leading management innovators, authors and speakers.
He has been a compulsive innovator since childhood and a serial entrepreneur for much of his working life, with Futuregen Labs being his most recent venture.
Jack lives in Bristol, United Kingdom.
