David Houle
Futurist | Thinker | Speaker

Your Business and Climate Change
Be Prepared with "This Spaceship Earth

Join us as we become crew members of This Spaceship Earth rather than continue to be unaware passengers. It is time for everyone to realize they are an astronaut. In order to deal with climate change, we must change our consciousness.

The last time the atmosphere had as much CO2 as today was at least 800,000 years ago. Modern Humanity has been around for 200,000 years so there is no road map, plan or strategy we can pull up from history.

Sit back, relax and come aboard to listen to this extraordinary futurist, thinker and speaker as he takes you into the future to challenge global warming.

David Houle is a futurist, thinker and keynote speaker across the country and internationally. He spent more than 20 years in media and entertainment working at NBC, CBS, and was part of the senior executive team that launched MTV, Nickelodeon, VH1 and CNN Headline News.

Houle has won a number of awards and two Emmys as co-executive Producer for a nationally syndicated children’s program, "Energy Express". He won the prestigious George Foster Peabody award and the Heartland award for Hank Aaron: Chasing the Dream and was nominated for an Academy Award.

He has written several influential books including The Shift Age; Shift Ed: A Call to Action for Transforming K-12 Education; The New Health Age: the Future of Health Care in America, co-authored with Jonathan Fleece which became a #1 best seller on Amazon; Entering the Shift Age also a #1 Amazon best seller; the eBook Is Privacy Dead:  The Future of Privacy in the Digital Age. His sixth book Brand Shift:  The Future of Brands and Marketing was named one of the top five marketing books published in the world in 2014.

In 2015, he published "This Spaceship Earth" with co-author Tim Rumage.  This book became the basis for Houle to found the global non-profit This Spaceship Earth, Inc. in April 2016.  The goal of this non-profit is to create "crew consciousness" as we face Climate Change.

He is Honorary President and Futurist of the Future Business School of China, a Founding Member of The Sarasota Institute and the Futurist in Residence and Guest Lecturer at the Ringling College of Art + Design.
