Amanda Johnstone


Amanda Johnstone invents technologies to improve the human condition. TIME Magazine awarded her as a Next Generation Leader, while The CEO Magazine honored her as the Startup Executive of the Year.

With a desire to transform the role of technology in our lives, Amanda co-founded Transhuman, to enhance human emotion and its relationship with the Internet of Things. It was there that Amanda invented the world’s first file type responsible for the sharing of data in the metaverse. This has been developed with executives from NASA and Apple and in partnership with Universal Music.

This all sounds very technical, but Amanda enjoys explaining it all to her audiences. Amanda has always been passionate about social issues, including the inventing of a mental health app called 'Be a Looper'.
