Adah Parris


Futurist and Technology Philosopher

London, UK

Adah believes that we want a new religion—be it through tech, mysticism, or a combination of both.

Adah is a futurist, technology philosopher, and strategy consultant who believes in solving problems by elevating human potential rather than crunching numbers. With over 20 years of experience in creating human-centered ecosystems, she aims to help build resilient workplace cultures motivated by truth, curiosity, activism, diversity, and humility.

Adah’s mission is to convert those “doing” the innovating across organizations, cultures, and communities into philosophers, building on her understanding that transformational change always requires systemic culture change. Since 2014, she has been working as a consultant and facilitator for clients such as Unilever, Google, Universal Music, The British Council, Sainsbury's, Ogilvy Labs, Innovate Finance, The EU Council, the British Film Institute (BFI), Wayra UK, The Friday Club, and ArabNet Dubai. She served as a Startup Category Award Judge at the BIMA (British Interactive Media Awards) and was the host of the podcast series Our Lives +Tech

Adah was recognized as a TED2019 Emerging Innovator, one of 100 BAME Leaders in Tech, and nominated by Google for its #IamRemarkable initiative.
