About Graham Brown-Martin

Graham Brown-Martin is an engaging catalyst for powerful conversations and fresh thinking. Graham draws on his experiences of leading teams, creating startups and scaling up organisations that challenge the status quo. Consistently ahead of the curve: he designed mobile computers in the 80s, interactive and online entertainment networks in the 90s, community-based social networks in the 2000s and a global forum for the future of learning in the 2010s. He takes his audience on an interactive journey that motivates them to think differently about the past, present and future.

In 2004, Brown-Martin founded Learning Without Frontiers (LWF), a global community bringing together renowned educators, technologists and creatives to share provocative and challenging ideas about the future of learning. His book, Learning {Re}imagined, a study of global education and geopolitics produced for the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE), was published by Bloomsbury in 2015.

Graham is the founder of Beyond Tomorrow Global, a growing international intelligence network of interdisciplinary thinkers designing a blueprint for society to thrive beyond the 22nd century. He is co-founder of, a transformative learning consultancy based in London and New York using circular economy principles to inform innovative learning and design practices.

Brown-Martin has in recent years given evidence to the House of Lords Select Committee on Artificial Intelligence, created an agile learning experience for senior leaders of a FTSE 100 financial services company, designed a science programme for primary school children using the Internet of Things, created an experiential programme for children to learn about working with autonomous humanoid robots and was retained by an educational technology maker to lead their global product and brand development, education and communications strategy with teams in the UK, US and China.

Graham is a co-founder of WORDS & EARS, a London-based strategic insight and leadership coaching practice established in 2012 to help organisations and their leaders navigate the future, achieve their goals and maintain resilience.
