Who we are
We help busy people and organizations manage risk and uncertainty and create opportunities for growth and profits today through continuous intelligence from around the world. Our members are engaged in strategic and future thinking, trends intelligence and consumer research, business development, design, marketing, media planning, knowledge and change management.
Every day our researchers simplify complexity by scanning and analysing trends worldwide, and uploading relevant articles and studies about the future to our service. From our UK headquarters we manage this global team of researchers, each with a subject specialization. Our information comes from rigorous and continuous physical searches for quality future-related sites. We are trained environmental scanners and trends researchers, not an automated web crawler. We have backgrounds in professional futures, market research, publishing, and senior management roles in many of the industries we cover.
