At a glance:

Claire Haidar is a tech entrepreneur and speaker fascinated by the intersection between systems and human behavior. She believes that if people are going to spend 90% of their time at work, it should be the place where their souls, hearts and minds come alive.

Part chaos, part rocket fuel, Claire Haidar is a technology entrepreneur, student pilot and future thinker about all things human, work and play.

She believes that chaos is our new reality. In 2016 she did a TEDx talk about this topic and sketched a picture of our future which is exactly the one we find ourselves in today.

Chaos is good and ultimately positive for humanity but it’s highly disruptive for the foreseeable future. Chaos theory defined is this: what appears to be chaotic is in fact a complex system, where a lot of micro changes are happening regularly, in a seemingly unpredictable way. Work on a global level is adopting these exact characteristics.

Claire’s deep passion lies in enabling individuals, teams and organisations to embrace behaviours that enable them to move into this new world of work.

She, and the team she leads at WNDYR are at the forefront of the future of work. They lead some of the world’s largest organisations through transformation programmes that entirely change how they work in a digital age.

WNDYR and Claire have an impressive list of clients which include: Getty Images, Phillips, EY, Siemens, Credit Suisse, Accenture, Roche, Schlumberger, Asos and many of the world’s leading technology companies.

Claire challenges the status quo, pushes the boundaries on what is possible, and asks the big questions that a lot of us are afraid to really confront and act on. If you want your mental boxes to be challenged; if you want to colour outside the lines, then engage with Claire around topics such as the future of work in a world of robots, play as an essential part of work, human acceleration in an automated world and visualising organisations at work as playgrounds.

She’s building a rocket … you’ll want to board this one.

  • Human Acceleration in a World of Robots

  • Work and Play: Where Happiness Intersects

  • Chaos Theory: A Future-of-Work View

  • Work as a Playground

  • The Work/Life Balance Myth

  • A Work Revolution is Happening: Why You Need to Give a Damn

  • The Cutting Edge of Work: What You Need to Know

Claire Haider was a featured breakout speaker at our August 2020 Women’s Leadership Conference. She was pleasure to partner with, and we especially appreciated how she was able to adapt from in-person to virtual, accommodate our date change, and amend her presentation for us, given world events. Our attendees remarked at how relevant her message was, particularly that continual iteration is part of the process at work.

Claire is a fantastic and inspiring speaker! I had the pleasure of working with her when she moderated a panel on Digital Transformation at our Wrike Collaborate conference. It was clear Claire had invested time and research into preparing for the panel and was passionate about the topic. She led a lively and engaging discussion, which benefitted the audience because it was practical, but also thought-provoking.
