Bio Michael Shaun Conaway, Philosopher, Generative Futurist, Filmmaker - 2022
Michael Shaun is endlessly curious about how life works, why we do things the way we do and how we might do them differently. This led him to become a phenomenological philosopher. His current work in Being and Time is rooted in this tradition.
Michael Shaun’s purpose in life is to unleash greatness to bring about a thriving future. His mission is to empower and accelerate the redesign of our failing systems to create an anti-fragile, anti-rival world, one that works for all.
To this end he helped to create the field of Generative Futurism, the practice of generating or envisioning desirable futures at near and long timeframes, back-casting steps it would take to realize that future and then acting to take those steps moving forward in time. Simply put, this is the capacity to see and realize futures.
Michael Shaun is a frequent speaker on long-term strategy, the future and being and time. His keynotes have the uncanny power to shift culture by building a new narrative for the audience. His talks are journeys designed to leave the audience seeing from a new reality.
Michael Shaun Conaway is the founder of five highly successful ventures. He is an award-winning filmmaker, editing publisher of PROOF magazine, founder of Bold.ly NOW, a entrepreneur education platform, CEO of Storyworks, a social impact creative agency, and CEO of The Futurists, a long term strategic visioning consultancy.
Michael Shaun is the director of award-winning documentary feature, WeRiseUP, a culture-shifting film featuring key global leaders. WeRiseUP asks a fundamental question: What is success for humanity?
Michael Shaun started his career in the mid-nineties as a writer/director for video games. By 2000 his creative agency, Storyworks became the go to agency for high tech companies looking to create visions of the future.

We would be happy to give a free gift of a 50 min coaching call to the first person who comments on Michael Shaun’s instagram reel the day our interview goes live.
