Chris Kutarna is co-author of Age of Discovery: Navigating the Storms of Our Second Re-naissance, a best-selling, internationally acclaimed book.
In late 2018, Chris launched the Renaissance Expedition: a global journey to find, connect, support and challenge the pathfinders who are leading society and business into the new world. The non-profit Expedition convenes invite-only “basecamps” around the world. The first, held in North America, brought together Nobel Laureates, award-winning artists and singers, billionaires, disadvantaged youth and other leaders to shake up their own paradigms and make new maps together.
Chris is the lead-off presenter for two of the three flagship Executive Education pro-grammes at Oxford Saïd Business School—the Oxford Strategic Leadership Programme and the Oxford Advanced Management & Leadership Programme. Chris’ monthly essays are read by thousands of senior executives, journalists, academics, policy makers and business leaders.
He has been a two-time Governor General’s Medallist, a Commonwealth Scholar, and a Fellow of the Oxford Martin School at Oxford University. Chris consulted with BCG in New Zealand, Australia and China. Chris holds a doctorate in Politics (of China) from the University of Oxford, started a business in Beijing, and speaks Mandarin.
