Having worked extensively on scenario planning projects, Richard is perfectly placed to help you and your business consider:

Expect to hear from Richard on what is currently and will be, cutting edge in the AI sector, and to leave with ideas, inspiration and potential opportunities for your own business going forward.

He is the founder and editor of Now and Next, a website that documents global trends, and the publisher of the What’s Next report, with each issue offering concise commentary on some of the drivers of change within the macro-environment and speculating about future risks and opportunities.
