Top Futurist & Strategic Forecaster (USA)
How to think about the future when it’s impossible to think about the future
Ben Hammersley is a name that needs no introduction. As one of the most thought-provoking futurists of our time, his impact on the world through his practical and proactive approach to the digital era has truly shaped the globalized village we live in.
Ben has had a career like no other – he founded Hammersley Futures, an international strategic forecasting consultancy that guides corporations and governmental agencies to think clearly about the future, he invented the word “podcast”, wrote 5 books, lectured and inspired audiences across the world to prepare them for the future – his help was even needed by the European Commission, where he advised governments and organizations in the area of technology and media.
This highly sought-out speaker is preparing the world to thrive in the 21st century with his high-impact and practice-changing speeches. The message he always conveys is to be more present now to be prepared for the future, which is something countless organizations he has advised would agree upon after experiencing Ben’s guidance on the changing nature of the workplace and the market, and the new cognitive tools needed to flourish in the coming decades.
DK Piknik by Jamnica Botanica was truly a golden opportunity for you to hear Ben Hammersley challenge everything you thought about the future. In his talk How to think about the future when it’s impossible to think about the future he proved that all the ways we use to plan for the future are now broken and that no one talks about the world in the future anymore. So how can we make plans for ourselves, our companies, our communities, or our families? There is a better way and Ben taught us how.
