Morris miselowski

Futuristic global business

Morris Misel (Miselowski) unleashes possibilities by breaking with convention.

For over 30 years, he’s been influencing the thinking of some of the world’s biggest organizations and brands to see what tomorrow might look like – long before they live it.

Morris also shares his practical knowledge through the global stage and international media, and is known for his energy, in-depth knowledge and foresight.

He was born to be futuristic. The son of Holocaust survivors, who saw the world collapse around them, he grew up in a family that believed there would always be a better tomorrow.

This belief has become his lifelong passion.

To get to where he is, Morris wore many hats. At the age of 18, he was leading an entrepreneurial life running a direct mail business. However, moving from his garage-related business to the global stage and conference rooms, including presenting a TEDx talk, took a few extra steps.

He spent many years as an academic in management and marketing and even ventured behind prison bars for a decade, to co-found and run the first Volunteer Jewish Prison Chaplaincy Service in Victoria.

He is also the first and only Australian futurist among the alumni of Einstein 100 Genius (G100), an honor he shares with the exceptional Barbara Streisand and is an Industry Fellow of Griffith University.
