Dr Patrick Dixon is a futurist who has been ranked as one of the 20 most influential business thinkers alive today.
He has worked with or advised over 400 of the world’s largest corporations on strategy, global trends, innovation and risk management.
Patrick Dixon has over 20 years proven track record as a reliable guide to future trends for hundreds of the world’s largest multinationals.
He is the author of 16 books (over 620,000 printed in 43 languages).
In his most recent book The Future of Almost Everything, Patrick looks at how the future will be Fast, Urban, Tribal, Universal, Radical and Ethical.
A future of boom and bust and great economic change as the emerging markets grow up; a future of great advances in medicine and also greater threats from viral epidemics; a future of political shocks and greater conflicts; a future in which people will strive for more privacy and businesses will change the way they relate to their staff and their customers; a future in which there will be driverless cars and solar power generated in the desert will power cities thousands of miles away.
In short, with great perception and insight, Patrick highlights the risks that a future-proof business needs to be aware of, and what to prepare for if it is to prosper and survive in a world where customers and markets, politics and demographics, technology and skills, and opportunities and choices will be very different.
