“Each trend is a looking glass into the future, a way to see over time’s horizon.”

― Amy Webb

The world is changing. Technology is advancing rapidly, and those who fail to advance with it risk being left behind. The question isn’t whether your organisation needs to evolve, it’s what your organisation needs to evolve into. World-renowned futurists Amy Webb, Melanie Subin, and Mark Bryan can help you find the answer.

From their work at top-level foresight and strategy firm the Future Today Institute (FTI), which was founded by Webb, and where she currently leads as CEO, these three tech and emerging trends visionaries know that every industry is in a highly competitive race toward innovation. These experts advise the world’s leading organisations on how to get out ahead of the competition, showing them the finish line before the race has even begun. They work with leaders and their teams every step of the way—identifying the organisation’s goals, formulating a plan to get ahead of the innovative curve, and putting that plan into motion.

FTI’s futurists don’t just reserve their insights for consulting sessions. They bring the same expert-level industry knowledge and progressive mindset to the stage in keynote speaking engagements all over the world. Webb, Subin, and Bryan are all exclusively represented by Leading Authorities speakers bureau.
