Futurist Speakers - how to become a world-class keynote speaker who predicts industry trends, challenging and entertaining at the same time. Magazine INTERVIEW

Interview with Futurist Speaker Patrick Dixon by Bitrix Blog - with updates (February 2019)

So, how does one become good at spotting future business trends, to become a world-famous Futurist speaker?

As a Futurist speaker working with over 400 of the world's largest multinationals, I have been forecasting trends for corporations for almost 20 years. The method I use is to read very widely, learn from every person I meet about their own changing world, travel extensively, spend time with innovators in the world’s greatest companies, and always ask radical questions about what could happen in future. 

All great Futurist speakers focus on hundreds of longer term trends which have been changing relatively slowly over the last three decades, and which will drive huge business opportunities over the next two decades, and then combine these with a very detailed view of the client's own business.  

But that is not enough: world-class Futurist speakers need to have passion, conviction and the ability to read every audience at the speed of light, feeding them life-changing, astonishing insights in an entertaining and highly-memorable way.

Why 25% of all deaths in Netherlands now caused by doctors deliberately killing people - euthanasia / mercy killing boom. Impact on your own family, life expectancy and future health care. Keynote speaker - VIDEO

25% of all deaths in Netherlands in 2017 were killings of patients by doctors, at their own request - up from 12% in 2013.

Most are dying in medically induced coma with the express purpose of killing the patient: unconscious for many days, with no food or water - so their hearts stop because of severe dehydration - 32,000 died this way in 2017. Why so many are requesting euthanasia, and what it all means for future of health care.

Comment by Dr Patrick Dixon, Futurist keynote speaker, advisor to global pharma companies and hospice-trained cancer physician.

Why rail transport has such an important future - saving time, costs and energy. Future patterns of passenger rail traffic, freight traffic, intercontinental transport, trams, light rail, container freight, intermodal transport (switching from truck to rail to shipping and so on), and hyperloop travel.  Rail trends have to be seen in wider context of demographic shifts, emerging markets, digital revolution, e-commerce, changes in patterns of globalisation and global trade.  New patterns of migration, manufacturing, management.  Why more will be spent on road / rail infrastructure in the next 30 years than in all of human history.

Interview for Fortune Magazine (Greece) 21 February 2019 - Patrick Dixon gave a keynote on retail trends for Lamda Developments in Athens.

In many EU nations, 70% of all retail spending is already in just four or five retail chains, and across the EU as a whole, 50% of all food sales take place in just ten chains. National price wars will become regional price wars. Sales by chains in the EU will continue to grow fast – 25% growth over the last 14 years, but their retail floor space has grown at twice that rate, so their productivity has fallen

Global e-commerce sales will be $5 trillion by 2025, from more than $2.6 trillion in 2018, mostly on mobile devices. Amazon is now the world’s third largest retailer after companies like Wal-Mart, Carrefour and Tesco, with $232bn of sales a year.  Over 30% of all UK shopping apart from groceries is already online, growing at 10% a year, mostly via mobiles. E-commerce is growing at 30% a year in Asia. These are pointers to the future of Greek retail. In Greece, EU5bn is already spent online, mainly on shoes, clothes and electronic devices - over 3% of the entire economy, and 25% of this is bought on smartphones.

Future of Private Banking is Philanthropy. Reasons for boom in Philanthropic advisory services for wealthy clients. Impact on wealth advisors, Family Offices andFund Management

50% of global wealth is owned by 1% and within 30 years that is likely to rise to 65% or more.  The number of dollar billionaires is growing rapidly every year.  The richest 80 people on earth own as much wealth as the poorest 3.4 billion people. Over 1,600 billionaires and their families own between them $6.4 trillion – which is more than the combined income of the poorest 120 countries in the world. And in the layer below that are a further 250,000 Ultra-High Net Worth individuals (UNHWs). So what is going to happen to all this wealth?  The answer is that a huge proportion will be given away.  Why?

I have been advising many of the largest Private Banks in the world and large Investment Funds for over 20 years.  I have also worked with many of the world’s wealthiest entrepreneurs and Family Offices. For 20 years now I have been saying that Philanthropic advisory services will be at the heart of Private Banking and wealth management, for the next few decades. The reasons are simple....
