Future of global faith, mission and organised religion: why personal spirituality and hunger for purpose will continue to shape and influence our world, and why over half of humankind will identify themselves as Christian or Muslim

Spirituality, World Religion, Christianity, Church

Video of keynote on global trends to over 1450 church leaders from 30 nations, part of the Elim church network.

Around 85% of people in the world today say that they recognise a spiritual dimension to life, which reflects an ancient pattern in place since the beginning of human history. While strident voices of humanistic atheism are likely to grow louder in some developed nations, they will almost certainly be drowned out globally over the next 50 years by the vast majority who remain convinced that there is more to life than atoms, molecules and bags of biodata. In developed nations, informal expressions of spirituality seem likely to multiply, as we see further decline in organised religion. Expect growth in personal systems for meditation, in self-help guides to spiritual enlightenment. So what will be the future of organised religion - Christianity, Islam and other global faith traditions?

Can a Futurist REALLY predict the future? Here's loads of predictions I made over last 20+ years.

Future Trends, Economy, Markets, Keynote Speaker

My new global trends book is out now:
The Future of Almost Everything. But it takes at least 20 years to evaluate how good a trends analyst was / is – so what about forecasts made by me in previous books, about what to expect over the following decade or two or three?  How did those forecasts measure up? I had to answer that question for myself by re-reading what I wrote in the past about the future, before writing my latest book.  Read FREE SAMPLE of The Truth about Almost Everything.

So you can judge for yourself, here are loads of predictions I made in the past - and the book in which they were made plus date.  Every one of these is already a reality or looks like it soon could be, as of August 2015....And yes I got some things wrong - not many fortunately.

Future of the Auto Industry - e-cars, hydrogen vehicles, new engines, radical designs, robot drivers: keynote slides, video, article on auto industry trends

Future of Travel, Transport, Aviation, Tourism

Future of the Auto Industry: Summary of key messages in keynote on auto industry trends by Futurist Patrick Dixon, for event held by the National Auto Auctions Association (NAAA). Car manufacturers are placing a huge number of bets on a wide range of new technologies ranging from auto batteries to hydrogen powered car engines, but only some of these will succeed.  Emerging markets will drive growth in automotive sales for the next three decades.  If every nation had the same proportion of car drivers as the United States, we would have four times as many vehicles on the roads of the world as today. Expect global car sales to exceed 107 million by 2020, up from 80 million in 2013.  Car sales in China will grow from 19 million to around 31 million from 2013 to 2020, while car sales in Europe and Japan will remain relatively flat, with some recovery in the US.

Future of Pharma Reimbursement, Treatment Access and Funding Approval

Future Health, Pharmaceutical Industry Keynotes

In the past, the major challenge for a pharma company was to develop a new therapy, prove impact in clinical trials, show safety, and get licience approval to enable the product to be sold commercially.  Typically the process could take up to 15 years, and cost up to $1.2 billion, which all had to be recouped in 10 years of sales before the patent ran out.  But today there is a massive additional hurdle which is persuading cash-strapped governments and insurers to fund a new therapy for patients.  It is no longer enough to prove the therapy works, saves lives, has less side effects and so on.  The pharma company has to make the case that the therapy offers good value for money compared to other treatments for the same condition. Need a world-class pharma keynote speaker for your event?

Future of MedTech - key trends in medical technology - interview for Inspira about latest book The Future of Almost Everything

Biotechnology, Genetics, Gene Therapy, Stem Cells

What did you learn as an inventor/innovator making a ground-breaking medical device in the early 1980s? It was an amazing time – as the world’s first desktop computers hit the markets in 1978.  I started a company called Medicom Ltd, which developed a suite of programmes to interview patients, help make a diagnosis, record health statistics, do accounts for General Practice doctors, connect to hospital lab equipment and so on. I learned that the most important thing about all medtech is to keep things simple and reliable: doctors, nurses and other health care workers are busy and need devices that work....
