Feel excited by the future
Holographic people, drone deliveries, no physical shops - ever? Maybe even the return of the mullet? The future is a scary place when we don’t have the tools to see what’s coming...
You know you need to be able to prepare, pivot and adapt to stay relevant.
You need someone with a futures mindset to get you out of a funk - with guidance, inspiration and a creative (maybe even disruptive) approach that energises you to imagine and create a brighter future for you, the planet and your business.
Because the future is bright. It’s awesome.
We just need to bring people out of the dark.
Your guide to the future
I’m a futures researcher and creator who helps guide optimistic people and brands into the future. My creative content, consultancy and training is all about provoking conversations and challenging mindsets, so as a human or brand, you can step into the future with excitement and ease.
My Mastermind* subjects are the future of identity, lifestyle and creativity, and I use creativity and imagination as a tool to get people thinking positively about what’s next, and the role they can play within it. Excited much? You should be.
The Future Thief is for the bright side of lifers, the planet lovers and creative rebels who want an imaginative approach to ensuring relevance in the future. That’s you, right?!
*Mastermind - the epitome of brainy in the 1980's… British game show where contestants sat in big leather chair and were publicly quizzed on their knowledge of a very specialised subject i.e. ‘burial grounds in London’. It pays to be niche.
